Fast, fluid, mobile interface
Today’s employees expect their organizations to provide the latest, most advanced and easy-to-use software. Mobility is key as users often alternate between several devices to get the job 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. Chrome River EXPENSE is designed as a mobile web app to provide the same expense reporting experience on any device so you can easily enter business expenses when they happen, where they happen and approve expenses as employees submit them. This is expense management software employees love.
Employees stay in compliance with the business rules engine
Chrome River EXPENSE ensures policy compliance with an embedded and highly configurable business rules engine to meet the needs of the most complex organizations. Let the software be the enforcer and allow the expense report to automatically follow your custom approval workflow. This is expense management software that finance and travel teams love.
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 jurisdictions, such as VAT, GST, PST, HST and FBT. Our country / jurisdiction baselines also include specific expense types for personal vehicle reimbursement, per diem, and fringe benefit tax, as examples. Chrome River provides financial control and compliance for global organizations through a SaaS-based solution, that can readily change as your organization evolves. This is a global expense management solution that modern organizations need.
Pre-Approval with Emburse Cards
Chrome River Pre-Approval with Emburse Cards allows you to visualize a traveler's daily trip spend against defined budgets and enforce corporate travel policy before any expense has been made. Employees can create travel requests for things like airfare, hotel, meals and rental car services, which are then routed automatically for approval. Once approved, directly in the pre-approval module, easily issue an Emburse virtual or physical card with built-in controls that will be linked to a traveler's Chrome River e-wallet to ensure that every transaction is properly allocated and easily reconciled.
Intuitive solution with little training needed
Our mobile strategy at Chrome River provides a consistent user experience regardless of device eliminating the need for training on multiple applications. Chrome River EXPENSE is simple to use and provides many options to upload receipts including the Chrome River SNAP application which literally snaps a picture and automatically uploads the receipt image into your expense wallet with just one click. Powerful optical character recognition (OCR) data extraction means data entry is replaced by a final level of review before submission. No more saving paper receipts in a bulging wallet, taping them onto a piece of paper and entering them into a spreadsheet.
Chrome River EXPENSE provides streamlined functions that make the expense reporting process fast and easy. Users no longer need to know, understand or be responsible for proper general ledger account coding—EXPENSE does it for them.
For end users who need guidance, Chrome River NAVIGATOR provides additional help that removes the complexity of learning a new expense management solution. With real-time, in-application tutorials, users are shown how to complete common tasks within the Chrome River interface on any device. This is expense reporting your IT teams love to administer.
Approvers love Chrome River EXPENSE
Approvers need visibility into expenses being charged to the cost centers that they control, but 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. Approvers can quickly and easily approve or reject expenses with simple controls and with the ability to view receipts for accuracy. Gain confidence that your expenses are properly reviewed for accuracy with a sophisticated and configurable routing engine that allows your approvers to approve or return an item with the click of a button through the mobile app or through email.

Chrome River’s single best selling point? The term that sums it up for me is simplification. It simplifies the whole process. It’s highly efficient. My AP clerks don’t have to come to me and say, ‘Is that a four or a nine?’, ‘What is this word?’, ‘Where did they eat this meal and who were they with?’, ‘Is that allowable?’. Chrome River takes all the guess work out, forces the user to be crystal clear on where they put their money and allows us to effortlessly reimburse them.
