Your sales executives can only generate revenues for the company when they’re out selling – not when they’re spending time on administrative tasks such as creating and submitting expenses. Chrome River’s intuitive solutions let your top performers focus on what they do best: helping grow your business.
Not only does the sales team generate the revenue that keeps businesses running, but for most organizations, it’s also the group that travels the most. With a wide variety of expenses ranging from flights, hotels and car rentals, to personal and potential customer meals, road warriors need a solution that enables them to easily submit expenses – wherever they are.
Works where your sales team works
Chrome River is a highly mobile expense management solution. It integrates with all major corporate travel booking tools and travel agencies, so flight and hotel booking charges will automatically appear as line items on their expense report. For organizations that don’t have a corporate travel partner, your team can simply forward booking emails from their travel provider, and our intelligent system can automatically extract all transaction data.
Expense creation is just as easy on the road. Using our Snap & Send capabilities, all your travelers need to do is take a photo of a receipt from their cell phone and email it to Chrome River. Our sophisticated optical character recognition algorithms extract all information, such as amount, date and merchant, and can even allocate an expense category.
Submitting expense reports on the road is equally simple, as Chrome River works just the same regardless what device your sales team is using. Our HMTL5-based responsive web design solution can be used from any mobile device without the need for a feature-limited native app, and provides both the same functionality and the same look and feel, whether on an iPhone, Android phone, tablet or laptop.
With Chrome River, your team members don’t need to be online to submit a receipt. They simply snap a photo of the receipt and send it to Chrome River via their phone's email app. As soon as they’re on the ground and have an internet connection, the receipt is sent, and Chrome River will extract all the data and automatically create an expense line item. By the time the plane reaches the gate, travelers’ expenses will already be processed within our system.
Chrome River also uses very little data, as a result of its single page application design. This means that instead of loading a whole new page every time expense data is entered, most of the processing is done within the browser window itself, resulting in just a few bytes of data being transmitted over the internet. It may sound complicated, but our engineers have it all figured out, and it means that your team won’t need to worry about a huge roaming bill when they get home.
How much do your team members spend on the road? While top performing sales executives often have some latitude in their travel and entertainment expenses, it’s critical that overall budgets are adhered to. How do your team members compare against each other in the amount they spend on travel? If your company still uses spreadsheets, you may never know. If it uses one of our competitors’ solutions, it will likely cost you to find out.
Chrome River offers sophisticated analytics capabilities out the box, so as a line manager you can turn expense data into actionable reports. This enables you to track spend by user, category and vendor, so you can see who is spending what. This allows you to budget more effectively and create insight-driven benchmarks for your team.
Keep your stars happy
We understand the pressures of being on the road. Don’t make your team give up valuable personal time on the weekends having to get caught up with expense reports. With Chrome River’s mobile capabilities, expense reports can be submitted before your sales stars have exited the jetway. This keeps morale high, frustration low, and the quarter’s sales targets in the bag.
Chrome River blows Concur away, not just for legal, but it’s a better system overall.
