With multiple companies and over 400 employees, many of which are mobile or do not work in the office most of the time, the task of tracking down invoices and getting them approved was very frustrating and time consuming. Molly Boothe (Controller) thought there had to be a solution out there that would allow their mobile employees to create a purchase request, approve an invoice or send an invoice from their mobile device. As a CDK user, Boothe reached out to CDK for recommendations for a solution, and that’s how she found Yooz.
“Hands down deciding to utilize Yooz in our invoice processing has been the best decision that we have made. It has not only helped us achieve our most important goals, providing mobile access and making it easier to track down invoices and gain approval, it has allowed us to cut our month end close out process from ten days down to basically two.”
Boothe knew that getting her Payables team onboard wouldn’t be an issue, as it was very apparent the benefits to them in making this change, she was unsure how eager the rest of employees would be to making such a drastic change. She was pleasantly surprised that what could have been a huge undertaking to change the company’s culture from paper to primarily paperless, was actually an easy transition once everyone could see all the benefits Yooz could provide to all departments not just Payables.
“Change is hard, especially one so drastic. When you have been use to putting a piece of paper in an envelope and sending to the Office to get paid and being done, it is hard to think that adding any extra steps to that process could be a good thing. It was important to us to show everyone it wasn’t more steps, it was simply different steps and all of the benefits making this change could give all of us.”
During Shelor’s implementation the project manager at Yooz was very thorough in learning how the Shelor organization operates in order to suggest the most efficient workflows to get the most out of the application.
“The Yooz implementation has been the best experience we have had with any software application! It is really difficult to get employees to believe in and want to learn a new application when you have any difficulties during the initial startup. If there are problems they tend to look for reasons not to adapt to the change. With Yooz we didn’t have any issues, which made it easy to obtain the needed buy in and support from everyone.”
"Don’t be afraid to change! I would venture to say if you asked anyone here at Shelor who has been using Yooz they would say the same. It is actually a running joke that whenever there is a process that needs to be improved my first answer is, I bet we can use Yooz for that.”
