Your advantages at a glance
Automated cross-company review processes
Workflow-driven supplier documentation lets you automate processes, control deadlines, and ensure compliance with standards and guidelines. By linking suppliers and subcontractors to the system and consequently to the creation process, review and approval processes can be handled smoothly and efficiently. Appointment reminders are sent automatically to ensure that all tasks are completed on time. The BPMN 2.0 Editor* helps you to adjust processes flexibly to suit your individual requirements.

Complete overview of all relevant information
Based on the Single Source of Truth principle, all information is stored in one central location, which means that you can access the latest approved version anytime and anywhere. E-mail attachments are a thing of the past. Personal dashboards help you keep track of all relevant information such as document status and deadlines.
The “time travel” function ensures seamless versioning and automatic, revision-secure archiving. The system makes a record every time a document is changed or accessed. Users can compare different versions against each other and recover them whenever they want.
Smart features that save time
Each aspect of the business has its own templates. They define which documents are required for the documentation. This guarantees that all requirements are fulfilled. Enriching the documents with metadata and classifying subcontractor documents makes it significantly easier to create standardised and comprehensive overall documentation.
Using the semantic full-text search, information can be found in your documents and metadata quickly and easily and reused across departments and companies, for instance in marketing and sales.
Optimises cross-functional cooperation
The intuitive, web-based user interface facilitates seamless cooperation across companies and departments. External partners like suppliers and customers can also be integrated into the processes. A carefully conceived role and rights management concept ensures that only authorised persons have access to information and documents.
In the workflow, suppliers receive information regarding which documents are required and – once all contractual and legal requirements have been met – can make these documents available online without having to send a trail of e-mails. This can be done across countries and continents. Fabasoft Approve supports 22 languages.
Adapts to your requirements simply and flexibly
Fabasoft Approve enables seamless integration into the existing IT landscape by means of a number of standardised interfaces such as CMIS, CalDAV, WebDAV, and web services (SOAP, JSON/REST). With the support of SAP IDoc, you can exchange data directly and easily using your SAP system.
