April 27, 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Chrome River EXPENSE going live. Alan Rich, Chrome River's CEO and co-founder, looks back at the past decade and how far the company has come.
We’re delighted to have been listed by respected technology analyst firm IDC as a “Leader” in its Travel and Expense MarketScape, validating our position in the global expense management industry.
Chrome River adds to its global expense management capabilities with yet more languages, so even more of our users in over 115 countries worldwide can now submit their expenses in their native language.
Any investment that a company makes in a new product or solution can only deliver its intended benefits if it's used - and embraced - across the organisation. While reluctant employees can avoid having to use some software solutions, when it comes to tools such as expense reporting, there isn’t really an option to sidestep it. However, this doesn’t mean that an optimal user experience needs to be an afterthought in the software review process.
Chrome River and Lyft are making it even easier for business travellers to create expense claims.
Now that the dust has settled on 2016 and we’re full speed ahead in 2017, Chrome River's CEO and co-founder, Alan Rich, looks back over the company's many achievements over the past year.
We're thrilled to learn that Cindy Heston, director of travel and events at Chrome River customer, Anthem, has been honored as a 2016 inductee into the Business Travel Hall of Fame.
Working for a fast-paced organisation such as Chrome River, it can sometimes be that case that we’re all so focused on our own roles in ensuring the success of our customers and the company, that we forget to look back and see how far we’ve come.

Fifty-four percent of respondents to the recent GBTA / American Express Traveller Sentiment Survey said that they submit their expenses electronically. While the adoption of expense claim automation solutions is at a record level, it still highlights that nearly half of all business travellers are forced to stuff their pockets, wallets and briefcases with receipts, which they then have to staple to sheets of paper and mail to accounting departments, along with a printed spreadsheet that needs to be typed up with every detail of every item.
You may possibly have noticed that there’s an election taking place in a couple of months. One of the time-honored tactics used by politicians from all sides is to throw out facts or statistics about your opponent, which may or may not have any basis in fact.
When I look at tech company names, I often wonder how they came about. While some companies have some pretty interesting / cool backstories, there are others who make you wonder if they just used a random name generator.
Those of you with a keen knowledge of Roman mythology will know Mercury was the god of financial gain, and travellers (among other things). This is really quite fitting given that today we unveil Chrome River MERCURY, which delivers a completely new experience in corporate expense management, making your travel smoother, and speeding up your expense processing.
On behalf of the entire team here at Chrome River, it’s with great sadness that I announce the passing of Harvey Rich.
