B2B Payments

Chrome River Brings Invoice Approvals To The Smartphone

Corporate expense management firm Chrome River is enhancing its invoice B2B payment capabilities, the company said Tuesday (Nov. 14).

Chrome River upgraded its INVOICE solution to support mobile management of invoices, enabling professionals to access the invoice processing capabilities of the tool from smartphones and tablets without the need for a separate mobile app. The upgrade means users can access Chrome River INVOICE via their mobile web browsers, the company explained.

The tool is designed for accounts payable (AP) and professionals that manage and approve invoices for payment. Chrome River said enabling professionals to access the solution on their mobile devices will accelerate approvals and invoice B2B payment times, as approvers won’t have to be at their office desks in order to manage expenses.

The firm added that Chrome River INVOICE also provides a dashboard on which professionals can gain an overview of invoice statuses and their progress in the approvals process.

“The accounts payable team has long been overlooked as far as high-quality productivity solutions go,” said Chrome River Co-Founder and CEO Alan Rich in a statement. “Until now they have relied on either paper-intensive manual processes or complex and unintuitive software tools. With Chrome River INVOICE, AP administrators now have access to the same caliber of solutions as their colleagues elsewhere in the enterprise, and approvers will love how easy it is to view and approve invoices on any device.”

Last year, Chrome River launched MERCURY, a mobile interface for its expense management solutions that allows users to take pictures of receipts with their smartphones and tablets, automatically capturing transaction data.

“Today’s workforce is increasingly mobile but also increasingly demanding that enterprise apps provide a consumer-level digital experience,” Rich said in a statement at the time.

This time last year, Chrome River announced a partnership with Amadeus to provide its corporate travel and expense management capabilities to Amadeus’ customers to streamline businesses’ ability to book corporate travel and make B2B payments in the same platform.
