Travel and Expense Automation Relieves the Burden of Paper-Based Expense Reports

Higher Education faces a myriad of challenges while trying to control costs.  But one of the easiest challenges to overcome is moving from paper-based expense reports to fully-automated expense management.  

Chrome River's expense management platform is built specifically for universities and research institutions. For example, grant allocation is as easy as a Google search.  Travel and budget pre-approval is routed according to your department's standard operating procedures and/or specific grant regulations.  The end-user can split expenses between multiple grants or cost centers without knowing any special accounting codes. And with our uber-friendly user interface, your faculty and staff can intuitively build and route their expense reports with little or no training. 

This whitepaper examines four keys areas that expense automation improves for schools:

  • Compliance with travel and expense policies
  • Spend visibility and using this data to negotiate with vendors
  • Compliance with grant rules
  • Operational efficiencies, including productivity gains and paperless workflows

Download the paper using the form to the right and see how the findings match up with your school. And when you're ready to learn more, we're here to help.
