Chrome River Goes Mobile With Mercury


Expense management and supplier invoice processing firm Chrome River wants businesses to take advantage of mobile devices while traveling for work. In doing so, the company said Tuesday (March 8) that it’s rolling out MERCURY, a new interface that connects its clients to its expense management solution across mobile phones, tablets and desktop devices.

MERCURY makes Chrome River the latest T&E player to launch a mobile solution.

According to the company, the interface allows users to take a picture of a receipt with their mobile device; the program automatically captures the data from the image and imports information into an expense report.

Users can toggle between their devices without losing information or their space in the expense report creation process, Chrome River added.

“Today’s workforce is increasingly mobile but also increasingly demanding that enterprise apps provide a consumer-level digital experience,” Chrome River CEO Alan Rich said in a statement. “We recognized, and are now meeting, the growing customer need for a rich, engaging user experience — across any device — that also maintains the sophisticated business rules logic necessary for expense reporting across complex global enterprises.”

According to the CEO, Chrome River decided to use a mobile Web app because it doesn’t require additional downloads or updates for users, while still working across devices.

“It also ensures the highest level of security,” Rich said, adding that CFOs and managers can more adequately enforce their organization’s spend policies and gain insight into employee spend.

The rollout of MERCURY comes just days after Chrome River announced that it now has its own new CFO, Daniel Machock.
