Buy better with Zahara POs'

Our software helps you get on top of costs. As your organisation grows, it's important to remember your small-business principles and not allow costs to run away from you.

Say "Goodbye" to Manual Data Entry

One of the key pillars of accounts payable automation is the ability to get your supplier invoices approved and validated and into your finance system with minimal effort. This means fast and intelligent reading of the invoices and matching against any outstanding purchase orders.

The end result is you can pay your invoices 9 times faster, with less effort on your part. Zahara can accurately read your invoices for you, down to the line item level, applying all the correct coding.

Approve, Export, Pay

Paying bills is the final part of the accounts payable automation process. Whether it's domestic or FX, having a secure system linked to the invoices that need paying, where payments can be effected quickly and payment statuses reflected in your finance system has to be an improvement over manual process.

Paying bills more easily with less effort will free up time for your team to analyse spend and focus on cost savings. With Zahara you can track every invoice from receipt to approval and then into your finance system for payment.
