Likelihood to Recommend

Emburse Chrome River

[Emburse] Chrome River is a good product for a global client because it has multi languages, and its car program as well as cross border approvals, etc. are important to a global customer. Conversely, for a non-global customer, [Emburse] Chrome River may not be appropriate, as that company could use a non-automated solution.

We are currently in the process of planning our company wide retreat in which we need at least 69 people to book their flights. While with that many people traveling at once, I do suspect I'll get some questions and have to assist some folks however by using Lola.com, the time I would have spent prior will be cut drastically. And I'll be able to see who is taking what flight and obtain departure and arrival information without much interruption to anyone's day. Prior to Lola.com this task would have been something truly daunting, but not this time!

Pros

Emburse Chrome River

  • Chrome River has a modern UI/UX that is intuitive to new users.
  • Chrome River is a true enterprise (4K+ employees globally) expense management solution.
  • Internal administration options allow most requests to be handled in-house; however the CR help desk has been very good to work with when a more complex request comes up.

Lola.com

  • Provides corporate leadership with great insights into employee travel costs BEFORE they hit corporate credit cards, thereby facilitating better budgeting, planning, and cash flow management
  • Offers employees who travel a single interface for booking travel
  • Provides employees who are traveling with concierge level service when booking and while on the road
  • The platform's live chat is fantastic!

Cons

Emburse Chrome River

  • The analytics are not to user friendly. The ad-hoc reporting is very complicated, as the headers do not clearly indicate what you are going to get in the report.
  • It would be nice is when you hovered over the "add expense" (plus with a circle) button, it told you what it does. End users have a hard time finding the e-wallet in their report when it doesn't automatically open.

Lola.com

  • Room for existing features to grow and expand, especially on the administrative side
  • Visually-speaking, the overall layout and color scheme used within the site, specifically when it comes to placement and contrast of key text info, has led to some confusion at times
  • Need for more support of existing travel rewards accounts

Chrome River is easy to use. We needed little training for our users and instead pointed them to Chrome River's Help Guides which are clearly written and easy to understand. With tools SNAP and the ability to email receipts means we can be completely remote when submitting reports.

This is just my guess as I'm not involved in the decision aside from providing feedback on using Lola. I think, from what I've heard, that everyone likes Lola and we'll renew the usage. I say this because we're an all-remote company and this greatly solves the logistics of booking flights for everyone.

Usability

We have had those that can't believe the ease of use and excellent user interface, many required little to no training. Others required more support, but most likely require a lot of systems support. The mobile app looks exactly the same as the desktop app, therefore the navigation is the same. This is a huge plus for adoption and change management.

Lola is simple and straight to the point in regards to usability. I didn't have to figure things out and felt that the interface was intuitive. I loved it.

I think support could be better, before Emburse took over we were able to use the dashboard to help with issues, which has been down for months now. We had a point person who would help up with issues and now we just get whoever. Also, when we need help for something it seems like we are being sold something instead of being helped. Every change now costs money even if it is an issue with the software which I don't feel should be a charge to the client.

Lola's customer support is fantastic. They have frequently contacted us when there are travel alerts, or anticipated flight cancellations to re-book us before it was too late. They are always helpful and pleasant and we have never had any issues.

Before implementation begins, make sure you have a plan on how you would like your workflow and platform setup for a system like Chrome River. It will speed the process and eliminate the need to make changes when you go live.

Alternatives Considered

Emburse Chrome River

I have not reviewed or evaluated any products recently. When we were looking at vendors for a T&E package, we did meet with Concur. They were a much larger vendor, but we felt that we might get lost in their world. We chose [Emburse] Chrome River because they seemed more interested in catering to the customer. We are a customer service focused business and we like to do things are way, so we decided on [Emburse] Chrome River.

Lola.com is much easier to use in terms of UX. Very little Admin and/or user training is needed to get up and running with Lola.com -- which increases our ability to quickly scale the solution. However, I would say that Concur is able to do more inside the travel arena with the addition of expense tracking.

Lola.com

  • They have made travel cheaper, so that is a direct reflection to our customers and to us.
  • Customer Service just makes the stress of travel on our employees not so bad. Knowing we have someone to stand behind us while we travel goes a long way
