Chrome River helps you to maximize the return on your investment in expense and invoice management by reducing total cost of ownership and delivering quantifiable cost control benefits.
Every enterprise software implementation needs to deliver effective return on investment. Of course, it needs to be able to check all the boxes for functionality and usability, but it also needs to make sense from a financial perspective. What is the total cost of ownership – not just now, but several years down the line? This concern is even more critical for a solution that is designed to help organisations control their own costs, such as expense management and invoice processing.
Chrome River’s rapid best practice implementation and straightforward pricing policy give procurement teams the peace of mind that their expense and invoice management deployments will have a positive impact on the bottom line for many years to come.
We understand that lengthy, complex contracts that try and lock customers in, sometimes against their will, can be costly and time-consuming to negotiate, and often start relationships off on the wrong foot. Chrome River’s contracts are designed to be straightforward and don’t force lengthy, inflexible terms. We have a 98% annual retention rate because our customers love us, not because we won’t let them leave.
Chrome River provides a guaranteed, fixed-price, cost estimate for the implementation of our solutions. Our expense and invoice solutions are implemented by an in-house team that knows our products inside out, and have a strong background deploying Chrome River across a wide variety of organisations and technology environments, around the globe.

Many software licenses and subscriptions are priced for a bare minimum level of services, with a whole range of costly add-ons for even for critical day-to-day functionality. With Chrome River, there are no hidden surprises – you pay a straightforward monthly subscription fee based on usage, with the opportunity to select value-add services.
We also understand that organisations’ internal processes can often change as the organizations themselves grow and evolve. Expanding into a new market or an acquisition can often lead to changes in workflows for staff expenses or supplier invoices. Our solutions’ architecture has been created with flexibility in mind, so changes can be made quickly and easily. This means that instead of a costly consulting project that could take months to complete, standard configuration changes can be made rapidly, as part of the subscription fee.
