As our millions of users will know, Chrome River is all about making expense submission and reimbursement as easy as possible. One of the keys to this is allowing people to submit their expenses with the minimum number of clicks possible. Fewer clicks means less time spent on admin tasks and can lead to faster reimbursement, which can be a major productivity and user satisfaction boost to busy business travelers.
With this in mind, we’re delighted to announce that Chrome River is teaming up with SpotHero, to offer direct submission of SpotHero’s parking receipts into the Chrome River EXPENSE automation solution. SpotHero is the #1 rated parking app, which allows drivers to easily find, reserve and pay for parking spaces in cities across the U.S., all from their mobile phone. No more driving aimlessly around looking for open spaces, or wondering if you’re getting the best rate on a parking place.
SpotHero users who have a business profile can now link directly to their Chrome River EXPENSE profile. Each time they make a purchase with SpotHero, the receipt will instantly be sent from SpotHero to their Chrome River account.
Chrome River will automatically extract transaction data - no buttons to tap, no emails to send. When users want to submit their expenses, they simply need to drag the image of the receipt into their expense report – all of the data will be automatically attached. This can all be done from any mobile device, so users can create and submit expenses without needing to get back to the office. In addition, if their SpotHero account is attached to a corporate card, the transaction receipt will automatically be matched with the card payment data.
We’re thrilled that SpotHero has become the latest addition to our technology integration ecosystem, and we look forward to helping SpotHero customers let business flow!
Our choice of Chrome River EXPENSE was made in part due to the very user-friendly interface, easy configurability, and the clear commitment to impactful customer service – all aspects in which Chrome River was the clear winner. While Chrome River is not as large as some of the other vendors we considered, we found that to be a benefit and our due diligence showed that it could support us as well as any large players in the space, along with a personalized level of customer care.
We are excited to be able to enforce much more stringent compliance to our expense guidelines and significantly enhance our expense reporting and analytics. By automating these processes, we will be able to free up AP time formerly spent on manual administrative tasks, and enhance the role by being much more strategic.
