AccessOwl - Automate your access approval process right in Slack | Product Hunt

Smart access management for smart companies

AccessOwl simplifies access approval processes using Slack while documenting who has access to what application automatically. Get access reports in minutes using a central web application.

Automate employee lifecycle from on- to off-boarding

Small and medium-sized companies often cannot afford the most expensive plans of their SaaS tools that would enable automatic user provisioning. Yet new employees need a set of tools. AccessOwl helps your HR and admin team and saves them valuable time.

Simplify approval workflows

Your team can easily request new accesses on-demand via self-service — without leaving Slack. New team members automatically get access to all the tools they need. Control access requests in compliance with internal or external policies (like GDPR).

Make your auditors happy

Get a crystal clear audit trail of who has been given access to which resource, when and why — available at the push of a button. Ensure that everyone has only the most necessary permissions ("Least privilege" principle).

Access reporting in central web application

Raise your efficiency

Streamline your user access management process by triggering automated approval workflows. Benefit from seamless integration with your already existing collaboration platform — Slack.

Ease access certifications

Simply reapprove or deny expiring accesses directly from Slack and practise the "Least privilege" principle (e.g. to avoid GDPR violations).

Increase security

No forgotten access when an employee leaves the company.

Gain full transparency

Accesses are fully documented along with their approvals in order to obtain a clear overview of your current risks (audit-proof reporting).

How it works

The general concept of AccessOwl in three simple steps.

1. User is onboarded, offboarded or requests new access themself

AccessOwl provides an easy-to-use interface for HR managers, Admins and regular users — right in Slack. Access modifications like new grants or revocations are collected in a structured but simple way.

2. Get approval for access change

If the flow requires it we request the approvals for you automatically, e.g. by sending a Slack message to the manager. Approve or deny — available at the push of a button.

3. Admin is notified automatically

Don't waste time with sending manual approval requests or questions about the access back and forth. Admins receive a clear todo list of what to grant or revoke - via simple email or via your favourite issue management system. It's that simple.

What experts say

Tobias S.

Whenever I onboard a new member on my team I need to document which accesses were granted across all of the tools we use. I want that to happen automatically, so that I do not have to worry about staying compliant for an audit.

Christoph S.

The best Administrators I encountered had the talent and experience to create their own well-oiled but often custom system to track and organize access rights. Lean organizations of the SaaS-age should have access to user-friendly administration-software for all skill levels to help their diverse use-cases out of the box and bring order into chaos.

Mathias N.

Every growing company in serious business needs a proper access management. Most of them use a home grown process from paper-based to issue tracking solutions. In every new company I have to build the same thing over and over again. It's time to make that easier!
