Who already tried ApprovalMax for tech start-ups:
Alastair Barlow
Founding Partner
FLINDER
"Data is valuable as it opens up new ways to make better decisions. With accurate data, finance professionals become a business storyteller when they partner with a company on strategy. Technology, of course, is crucial for obtaining such data. Xero is great for structuring data properly, and ApprovalMax provides effective data validation capabilities and well-tuned processes so that high-quality data can be collected in the quickest and most efficient way."
Álvaro Arranz
Head of Financial Planning & Analysis
FIREFLY
"In large part due to our investor's requirements - and made all the more challenging by our rapid growth - we needed to find a way for our different budget holders (many of which are not Xero users) to review and approve bills related to their budgets. For Firefly, Xero and ApprovalMax are a match made in heaven. We're now very excited to see what the future holds with this cloud-enabled software at the heart of our financial controls and revenue processes."
Peter Magner
Director
IRIDIUM
"Process automation is vital for tech start-ups because they grow continuously, which means doing things manually is simply impossible. With regard to accounting, they need data digitisation tools to convert bills and purchase orders from paper as well as capable tools for the automation of approval and audit processes. Authorisation with ApprovalMax is properly organised, much faster, efficient and transparent. Any hold-ups, missing or delayed approvals and we’ll find out about that in the reports; so we can take action straightaway. ApprovalMax certainly enables a truly streamlined approval process."
Sebastian McLarin
Company Accountant
THE ICEHOUSE
“When we moved to Xero, we started looking for a way to improve our paper-based Accounts Payable approval system. We found ApprovalMax, which provides us with exactly what we need by allowing us to create complex approval processes that cover different tracking categories, GL codes, suppliers and amounts. With ApprovalMax and its integrations with Dext and Xero we’ve been able to halve the amount of time it takes to process creditors.”
