Imagine you're on a plane.

You're on your way to a warm, relaxing island. It's vacation time, and boy, have you been looking forward to this for a long, long time.

Sitting back in your seat, reading your book, and sipping your beverage of choice, something up ahead in the aisle catches your attention. It's the chief flight attendant. She's helping one of the other flight attendants—a younger man—with something on the beverage cart when you hear her say to him:

"Did you remember to..."

Before you hear anything else she says, your stomach drops.

You remember that you forgot to approve that super important expense for your boss before you took off for vacation. And, to make matters worse, you can't remember who you were supposed to email about it because the finance person is on leave.

Uh oh. Not how you wanted your vacation to start.

But does it have to be this way?

We say no, no, it does not.

We say you should be able to pick up your phone and send a quick email approval. Heck, we say you should be able to do all of this without logging into NetSuite.

You know what? We'll go so far as to say you shouldn't even need to have a NetSuite account to make this happen.

"Say whaaaat?"

Call us crazy, but it's true. And we just might have something coming very soon that turns this finance fantasy into a reality.

It's called ZoneApprovals, and we can't wait to share it with you.

In the meantime, find out what ZoneApprovals is all about, and learn how it will transform the approvals process for finance teams everywhere in this episode of Finance in the Clouds with Tereza Yondemli, our Presales & Customer Success Team Manager here at Zone & Co.
