    If you are a large or midsized company, Chrome River Expense is perfect for expense management tracking and reporting. For smaller companies[,] there are cheaper options that could do the trick. Regardless of company size the software will suit your needs and be a pivotal part of your financial management company-wide.
    Jose Romero | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SlickPie (discontinued)

    In my opinion, SlickPie is best suited for small business owners and freelancers, especially service-based ones. If that's your case, then it's a no-brainer. However, if you are a bigger enterprise or if you are not a service-based business, then it might not be the best choice for you. Still, the software is free to use, so you might just give it a try anyway.

    Pros

    Emburse Chrome River

    • [Emburse] Chrome River listens to its customer's needs and does its best to match current products to those needs, or collaborate internally to determine if an enhancement can be made available that will not only benefit that customer, but will be a good use case for all Chrome River customers.
    • The [Emburse] Chrome River customer service team is great. Unlike most companies, you can speak to a liver person!
    • [Emburse] Chrome River's training offerings are relevant and pertinent to the day to day operations of the software.

    • It is free for freelancers or small business
    • Easy to use its dashboard
    • It save too much time for handeling Account related things.

    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.
    WENDY REED | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SlickPie (discontinued)

    • Some more invoice templates would be nice.
    • Some more charts would be good too.

    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.

    Usability

    Emburse Chrome River

    Emburse Chrome River 8.7
    Based on 99 answers
    Emburse Certify (Chrome River EXPENSE) is quite user friendly as a website and portal to upload receipts and submit expenses. It is almost too easy, in that some of our users had originally tried to overcomplicate things in their initial use of the software. Repeated use made our users comfortable with the software and quite happy with the change from paper submissions to electronic. The software does remember data entry so it will reduce the users time entering common names of airlines and hotels. The mobile app is wonderful for taking photos and uploading them to your wallet but it really does lack in the ability to create an expense report. The auto wizard will help create a report but makes it difficult to adjust any errors that might keep the report from being submitted.

    Implementation and post-implementation support and attention to detail have been excellent. Chrome River Help Desk responsiveness is also excellent. There have been occasional delays to Help Desk tickets. Access to the Help Desk has also been an occasional issue with credentials not working, and then there have been problems/delays regaining access.

    It is a time saver for Account related things and it has a Billing & invoicing feature which helps us to generate bills and prints directly or share online. It has a very well designed dashboard where we can do our daily work. and it is free for freelancers and small companies so need to worry about money

    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.

    Before shifting to SlickPie I was using QBO, so I guess I'll list it as a competitor. However, since SlickPie offers me 80-90% of QBO's features for free I can't really say QBO is a relevant contender.

    Return on Investment

    Emburse Chrome River

    • When evaluating solutions, Emburse Chrome River was the only company with multiple pricing models to suit customers' needs. Most others had 1 model. The ability to choose the pricing strategy for our global implementation allowed us to pick the model that met our needs and made the most financial sense.
    • The extensive approval routing options help fraud prevention
    • Stock and tailored reporting helps our internal audit team detect and prevent abuse and fraud.
    Don Koubsky, Jr | TrustRadius Reviewer

    • It saves me around $500 in accounting software subscription per year.
    • It saves me around 4-5 hours a week in manual data entry (thanks to MagicBot).
    • It reduced the average time customers take to pay for my invoices.
