About the Customer
The University of Minnesota is ranked among the nation's top public research universities. As a land-grant institution, the U of M is committed to engaging Minnesota, national and global communities to advance interdisciplinary knowledge; enhance students' academic, civic, career, social and personal development; and apply intellectual and human capital to serve the public good.
Scope and Challenges
University of Minnesota system (UMN) has selected the cloud-based Chrome River EXPENSE solution, which will need to allow users to easily capture and submit their expenses on any mobile device, all with an easy-to-use web application. Chrome River EXPENSE will replace UMN’s existing ERP-based expense solution and will be rolled out to almost 30,000 faculty and staff members across four campuses.
Outcome and Implications
Chrome River EXPENSE will replace UMN’s existing ERP-based expense solution and will allow users to easily capture and submit their expenses on any mobile device, all with an easy-to-use web application. The system will also streamline back-end processes, enable more accurate reporting, and deliver actionable data for more effective financial decision-making.
"Our Chrome River Project Manager helped us take the product and make it do things unique to a higher education environment. This level of customization on top of the easy-to-use interface has been well-received as we dump our beloved (and inefficient/irksome) paper processes."-said Carrie Meyer, Admin Manager at the University of Minnesota.
“Chrome River's technology is a great match for the complex needs of higher education institutions. Our ability to handle grant-based compliance rules, support budget encumbrances, and integrate with universities’ finance, HR and security systems has led to our strong growth in this market. In addition, we’re increasingly seeing higher education institutions place a premium on the user experience for software solutions, as this ultimately drives system adoption and allows the institutions to automate the most complex compliance and approval processes.”-said Alan Rich, CEO at Chrome River.
