Get everyone in the flow with one unified platform

Automate the human side

Work management tools fail because they don't fit everyone's workflow. Onalu's automations create dynamic pages, apps, and forms and remind people to complete them, saving you aggravation and hours of tracking, follow up, and process babysitting.

Approvals as a Service

A process that starts with Airtable, goes through custom approval logic with Baton, and then flows back to Airtable.

Pull data from a data source (Airtable, Notion, Google Docs, and more) into an approval process. Create custom approval logic and write the result back to the data source.

Custom Quote Process

A process that starts with a form embedded in website, goes through an internal sales quotation process before getting customer approval.

Embed a quote form on your website and assign customer quote requests to your sales team to generate a quote. Automatically send the quote to the customer and capture feedback.

Customer Feedback Triage

A process that starts with an in-product feedback image that allows users to click on it to enter feedback. The feedback is triaged before being added to GitHub issues

Embed a feedback plugin into your product to allow your customers to send you feedback. Then triage it before sending it to an issue tracker of your choice (JIRA, Github Issues, Asana, and more).
