Automating your accounts payable and purchasing workflows help teams see what’s beyond the mountains of paper in front of them. Emburse offers AP and purchasing solutions that make valuable insight possible, while taming two of finance’s most manually intensive processes.
Whether they’re in the office or working remotely, automation gives teams wider perspective and control over organizational spend that lead to cost-saving opportunities and operational efficiency. Our solutions provide much-needed visibility to connect your teams for improved collaboration for everyone involved.
AP teams spend too much of their day putting out fires. Late, incorrectly keyed, duplicate invoice issues constantly fuel reaction. Productivity chokes at the cost of rework and chasing answers. Heroic work, yes, but you hired finance professionals, not firefighters.
An automated solution from the Emburse portfolio clears stacks of invoices from the AP team’s desks (and maybe the floor). They emerge as a different kind of hero — one with the clarity to know exactly where payments go and serve as your vendors’ peacekeeper.
Purchasing is no stranger to putting out fires, either. A paper-based process involves restricting unapproved orders, matching mysterious invoices to deliveries, correcting errors, and more. Hours are burned doing work that could be erased through automation.
The Emburse purchasing solutions return control to the ordering process. Guesswork vanishes throughout the workflow. Replaced, instead, with total visibility of submitted requests and orders received.
Each Emburse solution delivers on the promise to simplify and streamline payment and purchasing, thanks to user-friendly features that include:
Work where and whenever you want with an accessible SaaS solution
Configure approval routings to become more systematic and streamlined
Provide the tools your team needs to increase control, efficiency, and productivity

Reconcile what was ordered, received, and paid efficiently with two- and three-way matching capability
“In addition to its flexible features and mobility, the ease of using Chrome River INVOICE [the invoice system] is impressive. The solution is very intuitive. We saw a reduction of over 50% in the time AP spent on processing non-PO invoices.”
“Our old system was slow, paper-based, and lacked transparency. Upgrading to Chrome River [an automated system] was like upgrading from a bicycle to a Ferrari.”
“Paper invoices used to get lost or held up on someone's desk. We were able to move to a more decentralized approach where everyone in the firm that receives vendor invoices is ultimately responsible for getting them entered into Chrome River [the system]. Because Chrome River [the solution] is so easy to use, that was not a difficult undertaking in the least. And our vendors are paid more timely!”
“Overall, the PO functionality made approval, tracking, and visibility of expenses more seamless and accurate. We migrated from tracking hardcopies to focusing on value-added activities that we wouldn’t otherwise.”
