23 May 12 Chrome River DIRECT PAY Automates Expense Payment Processing – Virtual


Reduces administrative costs, speeds expense reimbursement and corporate card payments

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2012

Chrome River Technologies, a leading provider of expense management software and automated invoice processing, announced today the availability of Chrome River DIRECT PAY, a service that automates and speeds the payment process for corporate credit card accounts and employee expense reimbursements. The secure DIRECT PAY service debits an organization’s bank account for all approved expenses and credits employees’ corporate cards and personal bank accounts. As an integrated service to Chrome River EXPENSE, DIRECT PAY’s automated electronic payment capability handles the entire expense payment process.

DIRECT PAY enhances the expense reimbursement process by submitting electronic payments directly into an employee’s bank account within just a few business days. All employees within an organization are eligible for DIRECT PAY and the setup process is easy. The employee self-service bank account maintenance is secure in the DIRECT PAY encrypted vault, freeing up time for the accounts payable staff by eliminating the need to store, maintain and update this information internally. DIRECT PAY also allows an organization to control cash flow while ensuring that corporate card payments are made on time, reducing costs by eliminating any late charges that could be assessed.

With the DIRECT PAY ACH processing service, the accounts payable staff can focus on more high-level tasks since many of the back-end steps in the reimbursement process are eliminated. Approved expenses are exported as both journal and cost entries to an organization’s financial system and into electronic payment files for the bank-to-bank and bank-to-credit card provider transfers. Since all transactions are handled automatically, duplicative data entry is eliminated. Organizations can carry on their “green” initiatives while realizing reduced processing costs by eliminating the administrative tasks of preparing, printing and mailing paper checks.

“Chrome River is excited to provide our customers with the ability to automate the payment process for employee expense reimbursements and corporate card providers. We’re confident that Chrome River DIRECT PAY will help organizations reduce expenses through lowered costs for expense report payment processing and by eliminating late charges that stem from corporate cards not being paid on time.” said Dave Terry, co-founder and COO of Chrome River Technologies. “Organizations will also derive positive benefits for their employees, such as increased employee satisfaction due to faster expense reimbursement and elimination of lower-level administrative accounts payable tasks allowing staff to focus on more strategic business tasks.”

Chrome River is committed to keeping their end users happy with continuous enhancements and innovations that impress and make their lives easier. The addition of Chrome River DIRECT PAY is another enhancement that adds significant value to Chrome River’s expense reporting software.

05 Apr 12 Chrome, Internet Explorer Lead Browser Speed Tests


SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwire -04/05/12)- New Relic, Inc., the SaaS-based cloud application performance management provider, released today the results of its most recent study on browser speed and performance. Using data from its free Real User Monitoring feature, which monitors 5 billion page views a week, New Relic surveyed speed and usage for popular PC and mobile browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Windows Internet Explorer, and Apple Safari. According to the study, Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9) surpasses Google Chrome for speed on Windows platforms, while Chrome 13 on Mac offers the fastest overall browsing experience. BlackBerry Opera Mini provides the fastest mobile browsing experience, twice as fast as its iPad counterparts.

“Despite significant advances in browser technology, most users still have a sub-par web browsing experience,” said Chris Cook, president and COO at New Relic. “We found that the average page load time was still more than five seconds. Most people sense a delay on a web page after the blink of an eye. Waiting five seconds is still too long for any user.”

Highlights from New Relic’s study include:

  • Chrome 13 on Mac offers the quickest overall browsing experience, loading web pages in just 2.4 seconds.

  • IE 9 outperforms Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox on Windows platforms, loading web pages in 3 seconds compared to Chrome and Firefox’s 3.5 second page load speeds.

  • In mobile speed tests, the fastest experience was delivered by BlackBerry Opera Mini at 2.6 seconds, twice as fast as Safari 5.1 on iPad, its closest competitor.

  • The global average for page load speed is 5.5 seconds, only a slight improvement from last year’s average of 6 seconds.
