End-to-End Travel Technology Options
Chrome River provides more integrated travel booking options than any other spend management provider on the market. Whether you work with a local travel company or global corporate travel provider, we make it easy to do business with the vendor of your choice, hand in hand with Chrome River. Chrome River knows how to make business travel expense management easy and efficient.
Integrated Travel Booking Options
Our agnostic approach to travel booking allows Chrome River to work with any travel management company regardless of their commercial booking tool sources. This means if the travel management company of choice uses a different booking tool or does all agent-only bookings, we can take a “travel data feed” from their back office or mid-office system. This includes both bookings from the booking tool as well as agent only bookings. Our integrated commercial booking tool preferred partners include Sabre, Work Fource (Deem), Cytric (Amadeus), and Egencia.
Duty of Care
Duty of Care is top of mind for many organizations today. In many Duty of Care policies, understanding and mitigating travel risk for your employees is of the utmost importance. Help your travel department prepare for and avoid the risks using our advanced business travel management solution. Chrome River’s partnership with WorldAware allows customers to integrate city specific risk data into their travel approval process. By partnering with Chrome River and WorldAware, global organizations can ensure their most important assets, their people, avoid risks and have the right data to make smart decisions. Chrome River helps make corporate travel less stressful for both your employees and travel managers.
Hotel & Car Folio Integration
Chrome River FOLIO makes it easy to create expenses from hotel and rental car bills by automatically creating itemized transactions directly in Chrome River. Whether your team uses a major global chain or local vendor, Chrome River FOLIO eliminates the need for travelers to manually itemize items such as room service, tax, parking and prepaid fuel, so they spend less time on administrative processes and more time building value for your organization. Save your employees time when they return from a business trip by automating your T&E reimbursement.
Travelers now have the ability to send ride receipts to their Chrome River profile directly from their Uber, Lyft or Grab business account. Post-ride, these providers will automatically send a receipt – including date, amount and trip information – to the user’s Chrome River expense wallet. When it’s time to do expenses, users just need to click on the receipt image and all of the ride data will be added to your expense report – it’s that simple!
GPS Mileage Tracking
TripLog Mileage allows travelers to automatically capture and document mileage to help your organization track and reimburse trips with ease. A traveler simply downloads the Triplog mobile app to capture the trip data and travelers can automatically import the drive details into their Chrome River e-wallet for accurate and timely reimbursement, every time. Reduce error, eliminate the need to manually calculate the irs mileage rate, and allow your employees to just enjoy being home after a long drive.
When travel is booked using an institution card program such as a ghost card or travel cards, the transactions will automatically flow directly to the traveler's Chrome River wallet regardless of the TMC or booking tool. Our data integrations support feeds for all card types, like Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club and American Express, whether transactions occur on a corporate card, ghost card, personal card or small business card.
Chrome River - as part of Emburse - also offers corporate credit cards and corporate debit cards. Emburse Cards are designed with the business traveler in mind. Instantly issue a virtual card to an employee that needs to book travel or send them a physical card for on-the-go convenience. All Emburse Cards can be added to a mobile wallet for contactless purchases - helping your employees make purchases quickly and safely. With Emburse Cards, you have the ability to set auto-enforcing rules, which ensure that fraudulent purchases never get charged to your corporate account. Set hard budgets and restrictions on who and when employees can make purchases and deactivate the card with one-click.

We were focused on finding an expense management system that our employees would love to use, while still giving us the control and analytics that we need.
Chrome River’s ability to easily integrate into our existing ERP solutions as well as our global travel booking solution were critical. In addition, many of our traveling team predominantly submit expenses from their mobile devices, so Chrome River’s superior mobile offering really stood out to us. We looked at several global expense providers, and Chrome River’s offering was far more innovative and suited for our needs than those of even the largest of its competitors.
