Analytics / Reporting

Chrome River provides our customers with valuable reporting tools to allow for easy access to current and historical expense and invoice data

Improve your business by leveraging the power of your Chrome River data!
We encourage you to explore the robust analytics engine provided with your Chrome River subscription.

Below are a few examples of some of our most popular reports:

  • Analyze spend by expense category to uncover strategic sourcing opportunities and areas for better negotiated rates (like hotels, car rentals, etc.). This can deliver savings that exceed 20% of total annual spend.
  • Pull together in-process credit card and out-of-pocket spend that are not yet exported from to the financial system. Customers love the insight into accruals and the help this gives to period-end close.
  • Aggregate all expenses associated with sales. This gives tremendous insight to the true cost of sales and the ROI associated with different sales activities.
  • Track KPIs such as open approvals aging to fix reimbursement bottlenecks.
  • Spot individuals and groups that are at higher risk for policy violations and target for audits.​

A set of standard reports are available to run out-of-the box. Endless other reports can be built with our adhoc query and data explorer tools. Reports can also be scheduled to run on a regular basis with results distributed to various sets of employees. Access to specific reports can be controlled via the Chrome River Administration application. You can also configure reports themselves to modify filters and fields displayed.

Refer to the Chrome River Help Center and Training Camp for detailed training material.


The Inquiry dashboard allows expense owners, delegates and approvers to retrieve information about expense reports and invoices they have submitted and/or approved. No special access privileges are necessary as the inquiry reports are available to all as part of the Chrome River app they are already familiar with.
