Ellucian Partners with Chrome River on Travel and Expense Management for Higher Ed

Ellucian has launched a new Web-based platform designed to manage travel and expenses for higher education.

Powered by Chrome River, "Ellucian Travel and Expense Management eliminates the manual, error-prone processing of expense reports, easing the burden on faculty and staff and freeing up finance resources to spend more time ensuring compliance and providing better service," according to a news release. "Additionally, it increases visibility for finance staff into travel and expense spending, travel frequency and supplier costs to better manage expenses and negotiate better discounts."

The new tool offers multiple configurations and is designed to provide support for requirements such as car use reimbursements, cash advances, delegate access, encumbrances, fringe benefit taxes, per diems, pre-trip authorizations and tax recovery.

"By partnering with Ellucian, Chrome River is able to offer higher education institutions a level of integration and simplicity of implementation that was never possible before," said Alan Rich, CEO of Chrome River, in a prepared statement. "The combination of Chrome River's powerful and agile solution with Ellucian's depth of experience and functionality makes for a very compelling solution for higher education expense management needs. By combining the innovations and experience of our two organizations, we will be able to offer exciting developments in mobile capabilities, analytics and other functionality crucial to our joint customers."
