It is not all that easy for Chrome River EXPENSE to set up and configure my organization's specific needs. I feel that it took longer than was necessary to set it up and get every user on boarded and ready to use the platform. There was a lot of training needed and it was not user friendly or intuitive. This was frustrating to the users at my organization and could have definitely gone more smoothly.

Easy for Reviewers and users alike. we are able to work together to get reports completed quicker and more efficiently with less efforts. The issues that arise from Chrome River are corrected in a timely manner and we do not see often. Routing and delegating employees accounts are a breeze. All around easy to use.

It has become much easier over time as the functionalities were added in, and now we are able to setup almost all the personalized configurations ourselves without having the Emburse team set them up for us.

I love how easy it is to update approval routings and how quickly things are send through. The customization is great and they do a great job of keeping up on things AND letting you know about program updates.

Chrome River was very easy to set up for our organizations specific needs. It integrated very well with our companies ERP system and has been an overall easy experience to train our employees on how to use their program. Because of the simplicity of the process, it has not been hard to integrate. Approval routing has been simple and there have not been any issues. We continue to work with Emburse to improve our expense reporting and they are very helpful and easy to work with.

We needed a complicated approval routing that Chrome River did not provide at go-live. Chrome River continues to evolve, and since go-live, has provided additional approval routing options for their customers. We had a great PM who understood our needs and provided recommendations and solutions throughout our configuration process. Policy customization is easy. Get agreement on current and new business processes before you write our rules.

Chrome River Expense is very easy to set up and configure to our company's needs. We have set up certain blocks for expenses that employees can choose from and we are constantly adding new job phases that they can cost their expenses toward. Chrome River has enabled our company to personalize the expense reporting process and streamline it so that it is easy enough for any of our employees to follow.

Configuration is easy and Chrome River is very supportive in the process. Report routing can be changed when needed and policy enforcement is critical for our approvers. We have been able to make changes and updates over the 7 years that we have been using Chrome River. Reporting shows us vendor spending year over year.

The overall set up process is easy, but waiting for the compliance analysts to actually read, test and implement your rules seems to take a very long time. We currently have a case that was opened in April that is still being worked on even though they are just adjustments to the routing rules. Since they are custom, we are unable to edit them ourselves which is a frustrating aspect of Emburse Chrome River.

Chrome River EXPENSE is easy to set up if you are a cookie cutter organization. If your organization is more than that, it will take some dedication from your Finance and IT departments to work with Chrome River's project managers and support staff to correctly implement all phases of the application.

Chrome River [EXPENSE] is a software for the American market but expanding also to Europe.
In some cases it is easy to setup, like expense types, compliance rules, in others like foreign exchange rates from National banks it is not possible to find a solution. We also spent quite a lot of time with translations into other languages than English. Overall, it is a software where local admins can do a lot compared with other tools.

Chrome River EXPENSE setup was fairly easy to set up as long as you have subject matter experts from the Accounts Payable department in the requirements session and decision-makers. Also having the ability to find out answers in a reasonable time frame is a major plus. Other than that, configuring consists of routing rules and the order it should go through and thorough testing.

For us, it was a pretty difficult task to complete the initial build. One reason for this: the organization did not do a comprehensive review of our business procedures prior to building the system. "Needs" changed several times during our build/implementation. It would have helped to have representatives from Chrome River and from other higher education organizations who use Banner as main points of contact before and at different points during our build. Now that we have used Chrome River for several months, we wish we could go back and rebuild how we do certain things completely. That's not to say it isn't doing amazing things for our school, it just could be even better and more intuitive for users and approvers.

I actually was not part of setting up Chrome River, so I can not speak to any issues or anything that may have gone on while it was initially being set up. I do know now, it's pretty simple to edit approval routing and delegates and things of that nature though.

This took some time to set up. I attribute this to not having the best information available on the chart of accounts, among other knowledge gaps. As we found these in testing, we resolved them and put a strong setup into production. We did have some post-go-live issues to resolve but they were very manageable.

Unfortunately, I was not part of the setup and configuration of the tool, so can not speak to that process. But as I have had to make refinements, I have found the process to be easy.

The initial implementation was very well done and organized by the Chrome River team. It was key for our organization to put the effort in to identify how we wanted the system to work. Smaller changes like adding allocations, new users, etc., are very easy to make. We haven't had to make any larger changes to the platform through two years.

It is very easy to set up and it has a clear way to track the routing and approval stage that the expenses are in. I can easily see what stage of processing an expense is in when asked by my supervisor or by a vendor. Each user's interface can be customized to be able to do exactly what they need to do without any additional confusing features.

Approval routing is easy to set up and adjust. You can also have multiple levels of approvals which is great. The custom reports are also a huge plus and come in handy to see if adjustments need to be made regarding our organization's specific needs. They are very proactive about sending updates out when things change.
