We deliver the same user experience across all devices – smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops – which makes employees happy. Powerful analytics and expense reporting capabilities make the CFO and accounts payable staff even happier. EXPENSE serves mid-size to large global enterprise organizations.
Fast, fluid, mobile interface
Today’s employees expect their organizations to provide the latest, most advanced and easy-to-use software to get their jobs done. They increasingly 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 HTML5 and Responsive Web Design (RWD) technologies, Chrome River EXPENSE is designed to provide the same experience on any device you are working on so you can easily enter expenses when they happen, where 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 global expense report software. The policies for different groups or departments may vary. 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 allows Chrome River customers to easily address far more complex 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 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.
Users love Chrome River EXPENSE
Saving paper receipts in a bulging wallet, taping them onto a piece of paper and entering them into a spreadsheet is painful. Chrome River EXPENSE provides streamlined functions that make the expense reporting process fast and easy. EXPENSE uses 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—EXPENSE does it for them. With direct integration to an organization’s financial system, accounting users are only reviewing and no longer rekeying data. 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, users quickly embrace the software.
Approvers love Chrome River EXPENSE
Approvers need visibility into the 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. All of this can be done online through a simple browser and through email. Approvers are delighted with the simplicity and visibility.

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.
