Feb 2 (Reuters) - Money management software maker Concur Technologies Inc (CNQR.O) posted first-quarter results that beat expectations on higher service and subscription revenue and forecast strong second-quarter profits.

The company expects second-quarter earnings of 24 cents per share on a revenue increase of about 15.5 percent.

Analysts, on average, are expecting an income of 20 cents per share on revenue of $84.2 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Concur Technologies, founded in 1993, provides its customers, including American Express (AXP.N), employee spend management software, through its products called Concur Travel & Expense and Concur Audit.

For the October-December period, Concur earned $3.7 million, or 7 cents per share, compared with $6.4 million, or 12 cents per share, a year ago.

Excluding items, it earned 30 cents per share, above analysts' expectations of 18 cents per share.

Revenue for Concur -- which competes with Compuware Corp (CPWR.O) -- rose 19 percent to $80.2 million, beating Street expectations of $79.5 million.
