Control Job Costs and Make Payables more Efficient

Invoice Processing and Job Cost Accounting

Cloud-based software for construction
making buying better

 

  • Process supplier invoices faster
  • Speed up ordering of materials
  • Control construction costs with budgets and job controls
  • Manage subcontractor behaviour with T&C and PO's
  • Get better pricing by comparing with other Zahara users
  • Allocate costs to Jobs correctly
  • Get the guys on-site approving and receipting with just their phones

Once the project starts, the difference between profit and loss is managing costs. Controlling your costs with agreed pricing, supplier management and purchase controls can make the difference. Zahara allows you to ring-fence job costs, get supplier invoices approved and matched faster, making it easier to raise and send purchase orders.

Whether you have central buying or need site-based staff to raise orders, Zahara gives your back-office team the immediate visual on all spend.

The finance team can easily and quickly reference orders when matching invoices and also use our suite of OCR tools to get supplier invoices scanned and recorded and into the accounts system, like Sage 50, faster.

Efficiency yes, but cost savings as well

First and foremost, Zahara is a tool to make things more efficient. It's a tool to facilitate better buying. The by-product of this is better costs control, better supplier management and reducing unnecessary or wasteful spend.

Are you right for Zahara?

We appreciate Zahara isn't for every type of construction business. We are ideally suited to construction companies like this:

  • Multiple concurrent jobs - lots going on, lots of buying
  • Centralised accounts office - More than one person in accounts
  • Process more than 1000 supplier invoices per month
  • Paperwork everywhere, literally can't see the woods for the trees
  • Use Sage 50 (UK), Xero, QuickBooks Online or Sage 200
  • Field-based site foreman or project managers who need to approve invoices
  • Frustration with limitations of current accounts system - e.g Sage 50
  • Real desire to do more with the same and be more efficient
our customers

What is Zahara?

Zahara adds control and visibility of your buying across all your active jobs. Every purchase or purchase request can follow an agreed work-flow. That could be Purchase orders being raised back at the office going out for approval to the boss, or trade-counter receipts being snapped and then instantly visible to accounts. No lag and no backlog.
