The ways in which my nonprofit organization has benefitted from Emburse Chrome River has been in our ability to use it to continue to comply with required auditing and regulatory compliances. We are a nonprofit, which means we are audited regularly in order to maintain our tax exempt status, and Emburse Chrome River is a key way in which we prove that we are processing business expenses in an appropriate way.

It has saved us a lot of time in bringing expenses over from our credit card companies. Even more, we've saved a lot of time with customized exports to be able to easily upload these expenses into our FinancialForce system using an FTP server to export and import the files.

Emburse Chrome River has integrated very well with our ERP system. I'm not sure how much manual effort was required when we first adopted this program, but from my experience the integration can be manual. Uploading jobs into Chrome River is a very manual process and has required some effort from our Accounting and IT departments to make it more seamless.

IT resources are minimal. During implementation, we had a dedicated IT resource once we were live we no longer required that resource. When we have needed our local IT support it is because of issues on our ERP platform. We do not dedicate IT resources for Chrome River. We send feeds to Chrome River daily: Rarely have we had issues with our feeds to Chrome River. Person and matter feeds are sent once a day. Vendor feeds are sent several times a day. We received Exports from Chrome River daily Rarely have we had issues with our feeds from Chrome River. Exports are received 4 times daily.

Everything input into Chrome River feeds very nicely into our accounting system. Again, it takes some technical resources on the front end, but once it's set up, everything works smoothly. And when we need to make any changes to our feed, we work directly with Chrome River to make those changes happen.

Our company uses the ERP system Viewpoint, a company of Trimble. I was not a part of the company when the transition was made from our previous expense reporting software to Chrome River, but I have never heard any employees complain about the difficulty of using Chrome River. There have been some issues with their app for Android users, but other than that, from an administrative side the program has been very easy to use through our ERP system.

Our company has benefited from the fact that we have been with Chrome River before it was called Emburse, so we are some of the early users who have taken it into our company. Our IT department understands the system as well which makes it useful if we have questions. however, the cost and frequency in delayed responses are frustrating for not only us but employees waiting on reimbursements.

Chrome River integrates with our ERP system to reduce data entry requirements and to improve the data accuracy. This integration takes resources on the front end to properly set up, but those are recouped and then some after the integrations have been implemented. Integrations also protect the data integrity as less human interaction is required.

The Accounting Software our business uses is Microsoft Great Plains and Export and Imports between both systems has improved over the 2 years using the Software. I would recommended customers invest in a solid integration software for your Accounting System to eliminate some of the manual processes that might occur depending on your current integration software.

Setup was easy. We had a 2 day workshop with consultants for the SAP connectors. Internal IT resources for HR and FI are needed but majority was done by consultants. Jobs are setup and running smoothly. Also adaptions were possible and configured. Nevertheless, it is important that employee data is available in a unique form. We connected one SAP HR system and three SAP FI systems.

Once you have the integrations 100 percent working, the feeds are seamless, and if there are any issues coming in or out of your ERP you will be notified of the issue. The vouchers get automatically created in our ERP system and all the accounts payable team have to do is pay it in the system and the feed auto feeds back into CR to mark it as paid.

The data that lives in Chrome River is only as good as it is in Banner. We are still working out the idiosyncrasies when it comes to many of the HR processes and how they are entered into Banner and fed to Chrome River. What we have found is the level of difficulty that exists keeping Banner up to date and accurate is affecting our accuracy and automated routing functions in Chrome River.

The reports are typically pretty useful and we use a lot of them in reconciliations for our credit cards every month. It would be great if it was all in one but the way our system is set up it doesn't quite work that way, but it is definitely a time saver.

We tied this to Ellucian's Banner, which is our student information system. The data in and out is manageable and we are happy with how it currently works. We look forward to having deeper integration to banner down the road. Being able to use EIS for SSO has made the process easier for employees and IT.

Our process is automated, so it everything feeds into the system. For our company it has been great with little effort by the team. Where we might see some manual effort is if we make a change along the automated process. But that is more monitoring for any errors.

The output, and corresponding customization, from Chrome River, [have] greatly reduced the time needed to import the data into our ERP platform. Previously we used a lot of manual effort to do so but the integration from CR has drastically reduced that effort.

Our accounting payment system works very well when integrating with Chrome River. As an IT Projects staff, I am able to submit invoices for payment processing and track their completion in real-time with our accounting department. This eliminates the need for me to constantly reach out to the accounting process for status updates when I am trying to resolve a late payment or payment status with a vendor. It requires little extra work from our IT department in managing and setting up this integration.

Chrome River isn't currently integrated with our system. However, we can run the reports we need to manually upload them into our system and have made it work. Their IT team did work with ours to do this which was very helpful. It would be great if one day they were fully integrated.

We have been able to integrate with our ERP, Financial Force, using SFTP file dropping. There are primary integrations that they have built out with the larger ERP platforms, but they do not currently have an open API to build to push into other ERP's. They do have alternative solutions to assist with this (like the SFTP file drop).

IT is better able to review and track expenses which are integrated into budgeting and financial software tools. Individually it gave each location a way to easily [cross-reference] expense data with budget tracking software.
