Learn About the Implementation of U of I's New Travel Management System

April 18, 2019

Chrome River, the new travel management system for the University of Idaho, will go live at 8 a.m. Pacific time Monday, April 22. To ensure a smooth transition to the new system, the project team elected to keep the current Travel Web system accessible through Tuesday, April 30.

Important transition details can be found on the U of I Chrome River webpage.

We are very excited about Chrome River, which will provide our travelers and their delegates with a modern, web-based application adaptable across desktop and mobile devices.

Travelers will no longer need to wait until they return to the office with a wallet full of paper receipts to create their expense reports. With a camera-enabled phone, snapshots of receipts can easily be sent to a traveler’s eWallet for the traveler or their delegate to create an expense report. Per diem calculators and policy reminders help users navigate U of I travel policies and speed up processing times. These are just a few of the new features that will improve the user experience for our employees.

Department financial and administrative staff are receiving training and support on Chrome River so they will be ready to assist their departments with the new travel system.

Travel management staff from the Division of Finance and Administration will also host user labs during the week of April 22 on the Moscow campus. These labs are open to all faculty and staff who need assistance in learning the new system. Times include:

  • 8:30-10 a.m. Monday, April 22, Room 040A, Bruce M. Pitman Center
  • 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, April 25, Room 040A, Bruce M. Pitman Center

Additional user lab sessions will be scheduled and announced in the Daily Register and on the U of I Chrome River webpage. Zoom sessions for off-campus employees will be scheduled upon request.

A recorded Zoom training session will be available for on-demand viewing. Other training resources will be available after the new system goes live, including tutorials and training guides. More information is on the U of I Chrome River webpage.
