Zahara is perfect for controlling indirect costs. Zahara’s is for controlling the buying process. Different types of organisations such as leisure groups, care homes, schools, restaurant chains, construction or hospitality can benefit from Zahara. We have spent years understanding and creating functions to streamline the buying process. As a Xero user, you will find Zahara easy to integrate and sync with Xero. Zahara provides multi-step approvals processes to add control as well as advanced invoice processing to speed up the AP process/
As a Xero user you can add automation and control to your buying. Your teams can raise purchase requests that, once approved, convert to Purchase Orders and go out to suppliers automatically. You can receipt the delivery, record the invoice easily and match against the order. Any exceptions can also be sent out for approval. Then the supplier's invoice can be pushed over to Xero where you can pay it in the usual way. Every step of the way there are controls and thought to make the buying process more secure, with increased visibility.
