Pros

We are keeping track of all corporate spend, and submitting them all on time now. The visibility of where all expenses are in their approval process has been great for our users.
Very flexible from an administrative perspective - we can set routing rules to be as simple or complex as we wish. Automated approval routing is the best.
The navigation is very user intuitive and there are apps to help simplify expense entry and receipt capture. It has very robust reporting capabilities and support documentation on their community.

Pros

I really love how seamlessly the integration is with this software. It is excellent and keeps all receipts itemized.
Again, speechless...cancelling once we clear all outstanding receipts in the system and moving to Zoho.
A great tool that has brought relief to our Finance Department with our company. I appreciate the ability to watch the tracking of approval.

Cons

The errors that get thrown when a business condition is not met sometimes seem a little unpolished. For example, if it warns you to include a note, and you include a note, the warning doesn't go away.
Chrome River has a poor user interface, so is hard for new users to navigate and generally is clunky.
When we first went live with Chrome River then, we went live with the Mercury version and a lot of things were still on the Platinum version so a little inconvenient at the time.

Cons

I don't like that it's a little difficult to correct mistakes.
Some of the labelling can be a bit confusing, for example, the decision to decide if I need to generate an expense or receipt can be a task.
A lot of back and forth that caused much inconvenience.
