streamlining Grupo Casais' processes

context & goals

As a result of its growth and internationalisation, Grupo Casais was faced with new challenges:

  • Integrating travel requests, their booking and the respective expense reimbursement on a single platform.
  • In parallel with the restructuring of the HR system, making the creation of traveller profiles autonomous in order to reduce manual efforts.
  • Improve expense management and the employee experience, following a basic model aimed at harmonisation and greater transparency.
  • Introduce analytical capabilities for employee spend.
  • Benefit from financial integration with the current SAP system, which can be migrated to S4.

The solution chosen was SAP Concur. The project focused on three fundamental areas:

  1. definition of a basic model
  2. application of SAP Concur and Arago best practices
  3. respect for local specificities

Arago was the chosen implementation partner, providing :

  • efficient project management and functional/technical support
  • delivery of the configuration on time, in line with Grupo Casais expectations
  • application of know-how to all SAP Concur modules, as well as to other SAP solutions (HR and FI)
  • application of best practices acquired in numerous projects of varying complexity and characteristics


  • reduction of 'paper' support; emergence of intelligent spending
  • expense management is now an essential part of the group's financial digital transformation strategy
  • increased productivity and simplified processes
  • increased employee satisfaction and involvement
  • financial gains thanks to a unified and more efficient spending policy
