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.

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

  • 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.

SlickPie

  • Support was always helpful when I needed it.
  • Beautiful and intuitive design.
  • It's free to use.

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.

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

  • Chrome River EXPENSE makes it faster and easier for users to create and approve expense reports saving time that can be used elsewhere.
  • Chrome River EXPENSE compliance rules allow us to insure policies are being followed.
  • Audit & review of expenses is much faster saving time and money.

SlickPie

  • 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.
