Make faster, more informed buying decisions

Control your spend and grow your profits

Whether you are running a festival, running construction sites or wanting to give your marketing or IT teams more autonomy, Zahara's budgets really help control spend. You can set the period and granularity and adjust the spend as you need to. You can enable monthly carry over or set absolute amounts. If a budget is exceeded, approval processes can trigger automatically.

Events - Controlling spend can be the difference between success and failure

If you take the example of a festival, the difference between success and failure, assuming all tickets are sold, is the amount of spend. Having a clear view of who's buying what, is the core principle of Zahara. But setting out in advance how much can be spent on say staging, accommodation or promotion, allows the buyers to work within an easy to use framework. This is the path to control which then this leads onto profit. There will always be emergency spend requests, but real-time budgeting will allow you to make an informed decision so you can see any impacts as it happens.
