Those of you with a keen knowledge of Roman mythology will know Mercury was the god of financial gain and travelers (among other things). This is really quite fitting given that today we unveil Chrome River MERCURY, which delivers a completely new experience in corporate expense management, making your travel smoother, and speeding up your expense processing.
MERCURY is designed specifically with the mobile worker in mind, and provides a fast, fluid and consistent experience for business travelers, regardless of whether they are on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. This fluidity explains the true reason why we decided to use the name MERCURY, and if you ever spilled any of the liquid metal in the chemistry lab, our rationale will make a lot of sense.
We’ve decided to take a mobile-centric approach for a number of reasons. The most obvious is that smartphones are ubiquitous, so the ability to capture and submit expenses where they are incurred is obvious. Second, 90% of people move between devices (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) to perform a task, so the ability to seamlessly switch between devices without any data loss was essential.
What is it that makes MERCURY so different, and why does it provide such a great user experience for expense management? First, we’ve redesigned the look and feel of it from head to toe, so not only does it look sleek, but the functionality has been revamped, making it a much more streamlined and straightforward process for users to create expense reports.
Features like sophisticated OCR (optical character recognition) and a rules-based engine mean that you can simply take a photo of a receipt on your phone, email it into your expense report, and MERCURY will pull out details such as date, cost and vendor, so your expense reports practically write themselves.
Where MERCURY really shines, though, is in the way it’s delivered to you. First, it’s been built on HTML5 using Responsive Web Design, meaning that whatever device you use to access Chrome River, you will get the same look, feel and functionality. Simply open it in your browser and off you go. For end users, this means no more downloading an app to your phone, and then realizing that it looks and works nothing like your desktop app. For administrators, there’s no more training users on different devices or worrying about all users having the latest version of the app.
Another exciting development with MERCURY is the introduction of Single-Page Application (SPA) technology. With this architecture there are no page loads as the user moves through the application. Only tiny bits of data (JSON objects) are sent between the user’s device and the server. This ensures not only a smooth experience, but excellent performance even on slow network connections. Whether you are on the road, working at a hotel with a slow connection, or stuck on 3G, the SPA architecture is the key to a responsive experience.
We think that MERCURY is the fastest, richest and most intuitive travel expense management solution available and we’re excited to launch it today. If you’d like to see more, please check out the video overview or, to get more detail, read the fact sheet.

Chrome River Technologies, a provider of expense management and supplier invoice processing software, announced MERCURY, a new interface that uses an innovative Web app to allow secure and user-friendly travel expense management across any mobile, tablet, or desktop device.
Chrome River’s MERCURY interface uses responsive Web design and rich Internet applications so that users get the same functionality and look and feel, whether on their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Users simply use the smartphone’s camera to photograph receipts, which can be emailed directly into their expense report, or uploaded from the phone’s photo stream, and then automatically imported using Chrome River’s OCR (optical character recognition) software. MERCURY also enables users to switch seamlessly between devices without losing any data so that expense reports can easily be started on a smartphone and then completed on a tablet or laptop computer.
Jeff Devier, global travel expense process lead at Cargill, a privately held provider of food, agriculture, financial and industrial products with 150,000 employees in 70 countries, said Chrome River MERCURY “will assist us with producing operational cost savings through better mobility functionality and technology workflows, along with opportunities to foster higher levels of employee engagement using the newly designed user interface.”
“Having a single interface across our business units and functions, regardless of what device is being used, will greatly reduce the amount of training required for our employees, and also will streamline the process for employees submitting their expenses,” Devier added. “MERCURY will simplify the expense reporting process for our employees, yet still allow us the control and financial insight required of large, global companies.”
“Today’s workforce is increasingly mobile, but also increasingly demanding that enterprise apps provide a consumer-level digital experience,” said Chrome River CEO Alan Rich. “We chose a mobile Web solution because it not only allows for the same deep level of functionality across all platforms, but also requires no additional installations, downloads, or updates.”
“It also ensures the highest level of security,” Rich added. “End users can simply and easily complete the expense report process and then get on with their day. CFOs also get the same highly configurable system for enforcing even the most complex travel and expense management policies, and supervisors can easily view and approve expense reports while they themselves are on the go.”
Fast, fluid, mobile expense reports
Modern businesses want solutions to be easy-to-use, fun-to-use, and work every time their users tap the screen. Chrome River delivers this technology with its expense management software. It has a simple, attractive interface that works on any device, anytime, anywhere, and is endlessly configurable to fit the way mid-market organizations work and evolve. Chrome River makes employees happy and lets business flow. CFOs and finance departments couldn’t be happier.
I spend a lot of my time traveling, and I always try to avoid bringing my laptop with me. This means that I need an expense management solution that allows me to both submit my own expenses, as well as approve others, from my iPad or iPhone. With Chrome River MERCURY, I can do both of those with ease. With many business tools, I feel that I miss a lot of the functionality using the mobile app, but MERCURY gives me the same experience regardless of what device I use to access itChris Poole President and CEO, JAMS
