Sapho Approvals MPX

The modern portal experience for approvals

Think about the number of approvals employees are completing (or forgetting to complete) every month. From approving expense reports and new hire requisitions, to PTO and PO requests, employees have to log in to multiple systems to approve or reject items that keep the business running.

Unfortunately, too many times employees delay an approval because they don’t remember their login for a specific system or they mistakenly delete a system email informing them of the necessary action.

The Sapho Approvals MPX solves this problem by providing employees a modern, unified feed that includes all the approvals that need to be completed. The personalized feed can be accessed from any device or messenger client, or embedded in your corporate intranet. Employees can view their feed, click into details, and approve and reject requests.

Roll up similar systems into a unified interface

It is quite common in this age of mergers and divestitures for organizations to have duplicate procurement, expense, financial, and other systems. Unifying these systems usually takes years. With Sapho, managers can approve expenses, POs, time off requests, and complete other similar tasks across different systems with a modern interface, without sacrificing any specialized fields from backend systems or having to log in to multiple systems.

Centralize approvals on your corporate intranet

Modernizing legacy systems must go beyond mobile. Traditional mobile only solutions typically only replicate existing desktop processes, rather than comprehensively addressing the underlying problem. With Sapho, companies can embed the centralized approvals micro app directly in their corporate intranet and replace cumbersome workflows.

Multi-step approvals that augment a system of record

Organizations often need to augment existing systems of record with an approval process that is incredibly difficult to implement within an existing system. Sapho can maintain the state of a multi-step approval process between systems of record, enabling additional steps and compliance to be easily implemented adjacently to existing systems.

Delegated authentication

Employees hate entering their username and password into various systems, especially when using a centralized approvals app. Instead, Sapho uses a single master account to connect to each system so employees only need to use their existing Active Directory or LDAP credentials within Sapho to complete an approval. Access to individual micro apps is tailored by security admins using existing authorization groups and employees can only access records that are permitted to their role in the organization.

Comprehensive audit trail

Sapho maintains a record of all employee activity in each system of record. For example, Sapho logs that a particular user has accessed a particular system, on a particular channel, at a particular time, and performed an action. This way, users of the system of record, such as an accounting team, have an audit trail. In addition, Sapho stores records of all employee activity in either the source system or application server log.
