Today we’re delighted to unveil the newest edition of our invoice management software, Chrome River INVOICE.
Over the past six years, almost 250 organizations around the world, ranging from financial services firm Janney to global law firm Morgan Lewis to healthcare provider Northwell Health have trusted Chrome River to streamline their invoice management process. With estimated cost savings of $16 per invoice processed using invoice automation software, according to PayStream Advisors, Chrome River INVOICE has saved our customers many millions of dollars’ worth of employee time, as well as increasing productivity, and improving visibility.
The latest version of Chrome River INVOICE will make it even easier for approvers and accounts payable teams to track and approve invoices, whether they are at their desk or away from the office.
First, we have designed the user interface (UI) of Chrome River INVOICE from the ground up, using HTML5 responsive web design (RWD) technology. What this means to invoice approvers and AP teams is that whatever device they use to access the solution, they will get the same high-quality user experience and the full range of features. Whether Chrome River INVOICE is being accessed on a large, widescreen laptop, a tablet or a mobile phone, users won’t have to squint, pinch the screen, or scroll endlessly in order to use it. What’s better is all of this can be done through a standard browser, so there’s no need to download and continually update a mobile app.
For the majority of INVOICE users who also use Chrome River EXPENSE to streamline their expense management processes, the two systems share the same elegant design. This will make using both EXPENSE and INVOICE even easier, thanks to a single log-on and a uniform UI.
In addition to the powerful features that INVOICE users have grown to love, the latest version also offers a significantly enhanced invoice management dashboard, which gives accounts payable teams an overview of all invoices from a single screen. This enables teams to easily track the progress of approvals, and its robust search capability allows users to easily track down any invoice by a wide range of attributes.
Combining the new INVOICE experience with other features such as Chrome River CAPTURE, which centralizes the invoice creation and input process, leveraging validated OCR results , and Chrome River PAYMENTS which converts the payments process from manual checks to a variety of electronic payment options , means that the AP team’s life will be even easier, allowing them to focus their efforts on more strategic, high value tasks.
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.
