Zahara's key strength is the ability to create simple or incredibly sophisticated approval workflows in minutes. We have a range of conditions and rules that can be applied to each step to engage the right people in your organisation.
Approval workflows can be created for purchase orders (requests to buy that can be turned into purchase orders) and vendor invoices. The workflows can engage users for an approve / reject outcome but also to include steps such as sending a PO to a vendor or exporting an invoice into a finance system.
As an organisation increases in size, there is a need to add more control on company spend. Making sure your buyers are buying from the right vendors at the right price. You can achieve this easily when you introduce purchase requisition workflows. Managers can easily approve or reject spend requests and business leaders can have a complete visibility of all spend not yet showing on the Purchase Ledger.
When Approval workflows are used for purchase requests, Accounts Payable Automation can be facilitated more easily. When fully-embraced and purchase orders are used, the validation or authorisation is front-end loaded. This means purchases are approved and coded accurately before the vendor delivers. When their invoice arrives, it can be expedited through to your finance system for a vendor payment run.
Every organisation has a process for paying their vendors. Zahara is designed to take this to the next level and to turbo charge the process without the friction. We can read the invoices and process them in seconds but more importantly we can use our rules to determine which invoices need to go for approval and which ones are pre-approved and ready to pay. Approved invoice can be exported to the finance system and queried invoices can be held back and accrued.
