The Dealer Case Study: No More Arts & Crafts Expense Reports and Corporate Card Reconciliation

Dealer Tire is a 100-year-old tire and parts manufacturer and distributor in the automotive industry. The only problem is that their expense report process was almost as old - and it wasn't connected in any way to their corporate card program.

As their director of accounting operations put it - expense reporting was more like "arts and crafts" - taping receipts to paper and making copies.

Already a U.S. Bank corporate card client, they explained their challenges and what they wanted from a modern expense management solution. The solution would need to support expense reporting and reconciliation and help them expand into global markets with enhanced visibility and control. And they needed to support domestic and international travel charges as well as B2B repair and maintenance expenses incurred in the field and at distribution centers.

The good news is that U.S. Bank introduced them to their partner for modern expense reporting, Chrome River. The partners have a streamlined integration for business expenses and corporate card statement reconciliation.

In short, working with partners U.S. Bank and Chrome River, Dealer Tire found a solution that exceeded their expectations. According to their director of accounting operations, "At last we have a streamlined process that works for all of us, from end-users to approvers to the CFO; the process is easy and delivers so much more control and visibility."
