Automated Approvals

Alloy automated approvals streamline approval processes in your company and eliminate the hassles and inefficiencies of traditional approval procedures.

Approvals hero

In every organization, work often needs to be approved by managers and directors before it can formally begin or move to the next step. Significant changes and big spending are typical items that must undergo a series of approvals from different levels within an organization. Important documents and knowledge base articles could also require a careful factual or technical review and approval before going public.  

Whether approval scenarios in your organization are simple or complicatedwe can help automate your approval workflow and streamline your business processes.  

Flexible approval workflow

Have your choice of custom single-step or chain approvals for any objects, just as your company policy requires. Purchase orders, change requests, service requests, equipment requests, knowledgebase articles, documents… You name it. 

Request approval as many times as needed  

 As request goes through its lifecycle, approvals from additional stakeholders may be required. For example, change requests typically go through two approval processes: the first one before planning, and the second one for post-implementation review. Tune our flexible, highly-customizable workflow to trigger different approval processes at different lifecycle stages of requests.

Automated approval routing 

Alloy approval engine automatically forwards submitted approval requests to the right people based on their role in the process, to grant or deny approval within an established time frame. Based on the outcome, approval requests move to next stages of their lifecycle. 

Keep the wheels turning

No more delays due to vacations or illness, no more gaps in the approval process. Approval requests sent to not available approvers are automatically delegated to their alternates. 

Stay productive and in control

Find your balance between control and efficiency with a conditional approval process. Let minor purchases from pre-approved vendors go through an automated procurement process. Shield large purchases above a certain amount with mandatory approvals from authorized decision-makers.
