Why zone

Approvals that won’t bottleneck your business

Businesses that thrive today and in the future have flexible and scalable technology that allows change and variation to unlock growth potential, not hinder it. ZoneApprovals gives you the simple and complex capabilities to adapt your lead-to-revenue processes when and how you need to. Effortlessly build, manage, and edit simple to complex approval workflows in NetSuite.
Easier than building a saved search
Functioning natively in NetSuite, users select the relevant subsidiary, currency, and transaction type they wish to get started in their workflow. They are then taken through a wizard-like experience to select the required criteria, from the department to line-level classifications, approvers, and approval methods (e.g., email).

Then…save, apply, and get on with your next to-do. (Probably approving something, right?!)
Approve from anywhere. Yep, we’re serious.
Keep things moving by approving or rejecting wherever you are. Inside NetSuite, or external to the system via email - as long as you have your phone, you can play your part.
No manual chasing - ever
With configurable workflows, email notifications and in-system reminders you can rest-assured that users have visibility of their approvals, and everyone can see the transaction at each stage.
Delegate, delegate, delegate
An individual matrix can be set-up per transaction type to ensure that users can be replaced by nominated substitutes should they be out of the office or unavailable for any reason.
Less bottlenecks, less frustration, and complete visibility - nice, right?
Every stage  in the workflow is trackable, traceable, and visible at any point, offering users complete transparency. Whether you’re just looking to confirm details of a transaction or you need to provide insight during an audit, it’s all there in NetSuite.
Set it and forget it. Really.
Once your approval process(es) are designed, activate them to apply to transactions moving forward. A new ‘Approvals’ tab appears on transactions to view the status, next steps and relevant updates. You can customize it any time if you need to change something. AND. DONE. Set it and forget it. Byeeee.

CHALLENGES

We got sick of approvals being the worst

Can it really handle our billing and revenue? We’re pretty damn unique.

You’re not alone. Whether you run your business on subscriptions, seats, insertion orders, evergreen contracts, events, hours, whateverl, billing and revenue get harder the bigger you get. And as new variables show up – customer demand, competition, and market changes – you’re forced to react. Fast. Most companies respond to growth in those crucial moments by relying on age-old practices instead of forward-thinking technologies.

How am I supposed to find time to use another system when we can just use Excel?

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad inim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad inim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

What if some automation error comes back to bite us in the butt?

In fear of overcomplicating things, losing control, and opening Pandora's box of risk – who wants an integration or audit mess – it's easy to default to 37-year-old software we're comfortable with. Excel is sexy, after all. In the beginning (we agree), this feels fine. But down the road this approach can actuall turn us backwards. Spreadsheets go from fun to frustrationg and human errors are all but inevitable. Is it worth the consequences of adding one too many zeros manually, that one time, especially if you spent 15 hours on it?

Time Constraints

Deadlines imposed by everything from closing month end to  years of audits constantly add pressure to the already-full plates of finance teams. Businesses are left with the paradox of slowing down growth in favor of more structure or burning people out from hours of manual labor a machine can do.

Quicker Closes

With everything lead-to-revenue in a unified data set – customers, contracts, invoices, payments, revenue – month-end closes go from exhausting to easy. We’ve even seen customers go from 17 days to 2 days close time. We asked them what they do with all their new found freedom, but they’re keeping it a secret. We think drinking margaritas, but maybe that’s just us projecting.
