Honestly, the reason I give Emburse Chrome River a low rating for the overall user experience is because it is not intuitive or easy for a user to learn. I have found it to be very clunky and overly complicated. It adds a layer of complexity that is frustrating to users. The app, which has the potential to be very helpful, needs a lot of work to make it easier and more intuitive for users. This would be key in improving the overall functionality of the entire platform.

Great system with a lot of features and customizability. We've had some issues with tying the mosaics and tiles to the correct cost codes (GL accounts) in the system. The application has made it very easy for users to upload receipts using CR Snap, or forward email receipts to the automated Emburse email address for quick uploads into the user's eReceipts gallery.

I would give Chrome River Expense a 10 for overall user experience. This is because the format is so simple and easy to use. Everything is very straightforward and there is almost no learning curve for the employee that is uploading and submitting expense reports. We have not heard any complaints about approvals being difficult or navigation being difficult for our employees.

Chrome River was a company that I felt valued me not only as a customer but as an individual. It was a personal relationship, I knew everyone and they knew me, now that it is Emburse Chrome River that personal relationship seems to be fading away. The product is great and the people are great but it's just a different relationship than we had a few years ago. Emburse Chrome River is still easy to use, users can start day one with little instruction. Emburse Chrome River is continuously tweaking the application making it easier for users to access all types of devices. Integrations with companies like Uber helps users track travel.

I would rate Chrome River Expense a 10 because, as I mentioned before, it is very simple and easy to use. This is important from an administrative point-of-view as well as for the field employee. Being a general contractor, it makes it all the better for our employees to use a program that is easy to understand and requires little time and effort. It has made tracking expenses very simple and has been well received by the entire company.

The system is easy to use, saves us time to complete reports. Auditing, routing, and attaching necessary documents is easy, it is linked to our corporate credit card so transactions are available for the claimant to select and claim. No paper storage on site and Chrome river does not destroy any of our documents either.

The system itself is very easy to use and navigate and the customization options allow us to tailor it to your company. however, we have had some employees complain that the receipt image capturing feature is often incorrect or it flags duplicate expenses that are not actually duplicates but totally different items.

Chrome River has made expense reimbursement easy for users to use, with the additions of application access on mobile devices. They also allow email approvals and provide links within the email to view receipts. I have received positive user feedback stating application is easy to use. Feedback has also been the desire to do certain items which are not possible due to the limited customization of the application.

Chrome River has helped transition my Finance team to another level. In the past we were paper driven and did not see some oft the pitfuls on how expenses were being coded, which lead to us making adjustments sometimes months later. The system also has improved the connection between each of our locations now that we have a centralized workflow for Expense Reporting. Communication, processing and reduction of errors have improved. We only have touch the surface on what can get out of this system.

Chrome River [EXPENSE] is available via APP and web browser. Training effort is low and more driven by company rules than Chrome River [EXPENSE]. System can be entered via SSO. Expense reports are intuitively entered. Approval is additionally possible via mail and the approver does not even need to enter the system. Everything can be checked via the mail.

Chrome River is super easy to use. The screens, boxes, and buttons are all laid out easily. If you are missing something the system will tell you. There is little training involved out of the box. Depending on your customizations you may need to create training documents to ensure users are filling their expenses and invoices out properly.

Having spent nearly every day for that past year in Banner, the things that we as admins find intuitive aren't necessarily intuitive to the user who only gets into Chrome River once a month or less. Part of that issue is more on the complexity of our state's business rules and account code usage, and less on Chrome River. We believe with time, the system will be viewed as being very intuitive and we are constantly looking at ways to tweak the interface to make it even better for the user. Chrome River gives us the ability to make those slight changes, and that has helped in the early stages of implementation.

I think the program is pretty self explanatory to figure out. You can easily walk yourself through things and if you can't figure something out, the help desk is available. We also have step by step guides on how to set up different things that are great.

This is one of the most forward-thinking pieces of software I have seen and it solves problems without a huge lift. Most of our executive-level approvers required no training on how to approve, and our CFO at the time echoed that this is easy to use. This made us even more confident in our decision.

Chrome River EXPENSE is very easy to train new users on, but once trained very easy for the employees to use. Part of our training focuses on downloading and utilize CR Snap for their receipts. This has reduced the "lost" receipt exception.

The system has been great for both the end-users as well as the accounting administrators. Being able to capture receipts via a picture on a mobile device has been a game-changer for a lot of individuals at our organization. No need to hang on to those bulky receipts anymore!

I give it this rating because I use it daily, and I rarely run into issues with it. Our staff and lawyers can also easily submit expense reports from their phones, so they can be sure that they can get reimbursed for all their expenses as soon as they have the receipt. It makes it easy for them, as an example, to upload a restaurant receipt immediately after they have dinner with a client since they can do it from their mobile device.

It's easy, simple, yet effective and we have several older employees who are "technology challenged" who don't have a problem using it! Which says a lot! Overall we've had great experiences with it. There is no perfect software, but this one comes close and that's a win my book if you ask me.

Very easy to track, approve, and manage expenses across the organization. The user interface is streamlined and easy to learn even as a beginner. The [enterprise-level] support is exceptional and was one of the best I've seen in the industry. I also loved how easy it was for us to integrate car rentals and business trip expenses.
