Total Spend Transparency for Not for Profits:
Control costs and spend with budgets and approvals

Transparency of Departmental costs

If you are a not-for-profit you are used to making the most of your spend. When using donated or public funds every purchase should stand the "Daily Mail" test. Can it be justified under scrutiny? No one wants headline like that above. Every purchase should have a full audit-trail and every approver should be held to account for the approvals they make. Zahara is a cloud-based tool that provides a complete visual of all your spend and allows finance to control costs more easily. You can create a structure in Zahara around your approval processes to make sure all pre-spend requests receive the right approval and all invoices are matched and coded easily & accurately.
Our Optical Character Recognition (OCR) tools enable the in-house scanning or loading of purchase invoices and we have integrations with a number of systems like Sage 50 & 200 as well as QuickBooks Online and Xero. Zahara is quick to deploy - fast to setup, intuitive to use, making it easy to train your people. In no time, you will be getting a great ROI with cost saving through efficiencies, reduced waste, and of course the reduced risk of fraud. Talk to the Zahara team to find out how we can help.
