Chrome River debuts Monday
The cloud-based system will replace the current Wells Fargo portal and the paper travel-authorization forms.
April 18, 2019
On Monday, Metropolitan State University of Denver will shift to a cloud-based system for managing corporate-card expenses and travel authorizations/reimbursements. Chrome River will replace the current Wells Fargo portal and paper travel-authorization forms.
During the transition, current users must not access Chrome River from April 18-21 as Customer Support will be preparing the system for full activation.
Adopting Chrome River has multiple user benefits. Campus users will not need to set up an account or profile to access the module and can simply sign in using their MSU Denver network login information. After that, users can easily submit expense reports, view corporate-card transactions, manage travel-expense reimbursements and more. Maintaining a cloud-based system will also provide automatic routing, ensuring that no paperwork is misplaced throughout the transaction.
For approvers, Chrome River links expense reports with receipts for immediate access and quick approval. Approvers also can approve within an email or from a mobile device with the click of a button. Chrome River feeds nightly into Banner for quicker payments and real-time reporting. These multiple options and functionalities will allow for a streamlined approval process and more efficient reimbursements.
Users who have already submitted paper documents for upcoming travel should complete their final travel-expense reports using paper documents. However, all upcoming travel preapprovals should be generated in Chrome River. All C-Card transactions posted on or after April 21 will be reallocated through Chrome River. Any reallocations done in the Wells Fargo CEO portal after April 21 will not be fed to Banner.
