What is ApprovalMax?

ApprovalMax is a cloud-based approval workflow solution for finance and accounting. It extends online accounting platforms with approval-driven financial controls for accounts payable and accounts receivable.

Key benefits of using ApprovalMax

iOS and Android apps allow users to approve when away from the office, while the Microsoft Outlook plugin enables users to approve or reject a request from within an email, and reply via email to create comments on the workflow

Conditional approvers can be set for workflows, based on customisable fields such as amount, territory or project. Multiple approvers can be set to approve in parallel for each step

Approvals can have as many steps as needed, with different conditional approvers at each level

Users can define typical step duration, which then gives approvers a deadline to prevent delays

Real-time chat on workflows allows for any clarifications and discussion required to be raised with the relevant people, and notifies users of any messages received

With Xero integration, bills created in Xero are automatically routed through multi-step workflows for approval

An essential add-on for Xero

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

We needed an approval workflow that was more advanced than the one provided by Xero, and ApprovalMax does the job very nicely. The ability to define approvers based on various criteria (we mainly use our location and department tracking categories) enables our budget holders to approve spending.

Cons

I believe ApprovalMax is worth the monthly subscription price, but it does seem strange that it costs more than the product which it extends. Then again, I suppose Xero has many more subscribers.

Purchase Order Management

Reviewed a year ago

Overall we are extremely pleased with ApprovalMax and it was easy to implement then we anticipated with people picking it up quite quickly.

Pros

The best things about ApprovalMax is the ability to be to create custom approval workflows and then have them automatically flow into our accounting software. It has streamlined our operations across multiple physical locations.

Cons

I wish that their was previous for excel or other file types. It works very well with PDF but JPG are slow to load.

Value for Money controls

Reviewed 3 years ago

ApprovalMax has been welcomed by all users so far as it simplifies and clarifies the purchase approval purchase and excuses non-finance staff from having to use the finance system to do their jobs. That in turn reinforces our segregation of duties and keeps the auditors happy.

Pros

Easy to implement and interacts seamlessly with XERO

Cons

Inability to accept authorisation by any one of several potential authorisers

Streamlines a difficult process

Reviewed 3 years ago

Very impressed with almost-instant, personal customer service.

Pros

This software automates approval processes for accounts payable. I have used this in a volunteer association, saving time for volunteers and valuable paid administration time for staff. Volunteers can view and approve invoices for payment without needing to pop in to the office.

Cons

Need some slight adjustments to workflows, but the approval max team are working on these and communicate updates regularly.

It's a great platform for expenses approvals, where a manager can review and finance can have full control over expenses.

Nothing. Everything is great. It's easy to figure out how to submit an expense for approval.
