Get Started

ApproveSimple saves time, saves money and increases productivity in your organization by delivering a quick and easy way for managers to handle approvals, anywhere, anytime.

ApproveSimple gives each end user secure access to that subset of actionable requests for which they are responsible from all relevant source systems. Users access all open approval requests, no matter their application source, via ApproveSimple’s uniform, friendly workflow and interface. The requests are grouped by request type and include all supporting documents. As users take actions such as approve, reject and reassign, the source application system is immediately updated.

Using built-in and custom templates and connectors, ApproveSimple works with all enterprise applications that require action on approval requests. The underlying technology enables the transformation and normalization of approval data from enterprise applications. The normalized data is formatted and immediately accessible from one page where requests are grouped by request type, i.e. Expense Reports, Purchase Orders, Travel Expenses, Time Sheets, and Quick Requests, etc.

ApproveSimple's quality user experience saves valuable user time, saves organization expense and avoids damaging approval delays.

ApproveSimple Connectors

ApproveSimple Connectors manage the synchronization and updating of open approval requests between enterprise source applications and the ApproveSimple Cloud Service. Connectors pull pending approval requests from the source application to the ApproveSimple cloud service and update the source application data with approval requests that were available to ApproveSimple mobile app users.

ApproveSimple Cloud Service

The ApproveSimple Cloud Service delivers reliable access to enterprise application approval requests - anywhere, anytime. Its deployed connectors pull pending approval task data from the enterprise systems.

ApproveSimple Flow

The data pulled by the connectors is normalized for use with ApproveSimple and cached in the ApproveSimple Cloud Service, making each approval request available on ApproveSimple - where users see only those approval requests awaiting their actions and can act upon them with actions including approve and reject. Actions taken in ApproveSimple are sent asynchronously to the source applications via the connectors.
