Over the past 10+ years, one of the ways that Chrome River has built a strong, collaborative, and loyal customer community is through our CASCADE conferences. These have grown from just a handful at the first event, to more than 500 attendees last year.
However, we realize that even that number represents a fairly small percentage of our 1,000+ customers around the world, and there are thousands of others who would like to attend CASCADE but are unable to do so.
With that in mind, we wanted to give the opportunity for our customers throughout the U.S. and Europe to get the benefits of attending CASCADE without having to travel to Los Angeles. And so, we’re delighted to launch the CASCADE City Series, presented by Emburse.
The 2020 CASCADE City Series will take in six U.S. cities as well as London. Each full-day event will include wide-ranging educational sessions about Chrome River and its solutions, including interactive best practice training and current trends in the world of T&E. It will connect our community of customers as we share product roadmap updates, provide details on new partnerships, discuss relevant industry topics, and highlight success stories.
Customers who attend these free events will also have the opportunity to speak with Chrome River and Emburse executives, as well as our product and customer success teams. The day will also offer several networking opportunities, so customers can share tips for getting the best from expense management and invoice automation.
Locations and dates for the 2020 CASCADE City Series are:
- Los Angeles: March 25
- New York: April 21
- Chicago: June 25
- Washington: September 1
- Atlanta: date tbc
- San Francisco: October 27
- London: date tbc

Our choice of Chrome River EXPENSE was made in part due to the very user-friendly interface, easy configurability, and the clear commitment to impactful customer service – all aspects in which Chrome River was the clear winner. While Chrome River is not as large as some of the other vendors we considered, we found that to be a benefit and our due diligence showed that it could support us as well as any large players in the space, along with a personalized level of customer care.
We are excited to be able to enforce much more stringent compliance to our expense guidelines and significantly enhance our expense reporting and analytics. By automating these processes, we will be able to free up AP time formerly spent on manual administrative tasks, and enhance the role by being much more strategic.
