MERCURY - Fast, Fluid, Mobile Application Interface
Today’s employees expect their organizations to provide the latest, most advanced and easy-to-use software to get their jobs done. More and more they rely on mobile solutions because they are on the go and alternate between several devices to get their jobs done - smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops. If the software doesn’t work where they are, on the device they’re on - it simply doesn’t work for them. Through HTML 5 and Responsive Web Design (RWD) technologies, Chrome River EXPENSE is designed to provide the same experience on each device you are working on so you can easily enter expenses where they happen, when they happen and approve expenses as employees submit them.
Employees Stay in Compliance with the Business Rules Engine
Controlling compliance to expense policies is a major cost reduction benefit of expense management software. The policies for one group or department may vary from others. Or, certain expense categories may require thresholds, routing or other precise controls. Chrome River EXPENSE is built on a powerful, flexible and configurable Business Rules Engine. This unique approach allows Chrome River customers to easily address far more complex and distinctive policies than other systems, as well as easily update policies and approval workflows as their company grows and evolves.
Chrome River EXPENSE is a global expense reporting solution that supports numerous currency and language requirements. Data can be viewed in different date and currency formats. EXPENSE also easily handles complex international tax jurisdiction, such as VAT, GST, PST, HST, FBT, etc. Chrome River provides financial control and compliance for global organizations through a SaaS-based service, that can readily change as your organization grows.
Why users love Chrome River EXPENSE
Handling pockets full of paper receipts, taping them onto a piece of paper and entering them into a spread sheet is not fun for users or their assistants. Chrome River provides streamlined functions that make the process fast and easy. EXPENSE uses an intuitive combination of a configurable Expense Bar for expense-type selections with an Allocation Code Selector for quick and easy input. Users no longer need to know, understand or be responsible for proper general ledger account coding—it is handled for them. With direct integration to an organization’s financial system, accounting users are only reviewing and no longer rekeying data. Filing expense report claims becomes a quick and painless process - so much so that many users who had previously delayed filing expense reports are now submitting expenses on a weekly and even daily basis. With automated credit card integration (personal or corporate cards), ‘Snap & Send’ OCR receipt submission, browser and email access from anywhere in the world, and an attractive and simple user interface, there is high user acceptance and adoption of the software.
Why approvers love Chrome River EXPENSE
Approvers want and need visibility into the expenses being charged to the cost centers that they control. Yet they only want to see what’s relevant to them. Chrome River EXPENSE separates expense reports and sends only the relevant transactions to the approvers who need to see them. With simple controls to accept and return expenses and the Image Receipt Viewer, approvers are able to process expenses efficiently. Combine this with the ability to perform these functions online with a simple browser, or even directly from email, and approvers immediately find their jobs easier.
