Unmatched Financial Control With Zahara’s Approval Workflows

Purchase Order approvals give you next-level control and visibility over organisational spend.

Every purchase request - whether that's stock, general expenses, or capital assets - follows an agreed multi-step approval workflow. You can choose to have automatic approvals for small spends, while also implementing more complex approval workflows for expensive purchases.

Zahara helps you to create super simple or infinitely sophisticated purchase or invoice approval workflows straight out of the box.

Invoice processing on Autopilot

Zahara helps finance teams process supplier invoices faster, and with greater accuracy. With nothing to install, your new paperless process can be up and running in no time.

Invoices are emailed into Zahara, where they are processed and read automatically, down to the line-item. Invoices are then routed for approval using highly customisable workflows, and finally matched against purchase orders or exported into your finance system.

Zahara's AutoPilot provides straight-through-processing with incredible recognition accuracy.

Pay Suppliers Faster

No Purchase-to-Pay solution would be complete without assisted and automated payments.

Pairing Zahara with the best payment providers now enables a new level of efficiency when paying supplier invoices. Doing so removes open banking restrictions like the maximum number of bills that can be paid in one go or the value of any payment run.

Final payments can also be approved, making the process more secure, but with significantly less friction.

How do your payments work?
Once enabled, you wll have an account with Currencies Direct. You can upload your domestic currency from your existing bank into any number of currency wallets effectively buying currencies. From here, invoices in Zahara are selected for payment approvals and then paid from your chosen wallet. This functionality gives you easier payments, great rate currency conversions and smarter batch payments.
How does your AP Automation software streamline the accounts payable process?
If your existing process relies on paper, spreadsheets or any form of manual intervention, you will find Zahara adds a huge amount of value to the AP Process. Every purchase is available in the Zahara online portal, where you will see the history grow from requisition to payment. There will be less waste, more speed and a smoother trackable process.
Can your software integrate with our existing ERP or accounting system?
If your finance or ERP system has any form of input for purchase invoices, we can integrate. We have full-integrations with many systems as shown above on this page, but we also make it easy to get the key-data you need out of Zahara and into your system. This could be fully-automated or simply you downloading data from our web-based software. We will work with you to design the best process.
What security measures are in place to protect sensitive financial data?
Zahara runs on Azure - Microsoft's cloud-platform. This is a robust scalable platform. We take security very seriously - as you'd expect and offer two factor authentication, including Login with Microsoft. All of our data is encrypted at rest. We are Cyber Essentials Plus certified and we have external tests of Zahara every year for security weaknesses. In summary we are as good as we can be.
How does the software handle multi-currency and multi-language invoices?
Each business unit has a base currency and orders and invoices can be created in any other currency. Our invoice recognition picks up different currencies and recognises most European languages competently. Our reporting api offers all data as well as currency exchange rates by date for more meaningful reports in tools like PowerBI.
