What is Zahara?

Zahara adds control and visibility of your buying across your organisation. Every purchase or purchase request can follow an agreed work-flow. That could be purchase orders being raised by staff, routing for approval to the team-leaders, or directors approving exceptional or expensive costs. Zahara makes the buying process better, eliminating paper but improving the audit-trail behind every purchase decision.
