Great Piece of Work

2016-08-04

We haven't been using Zahara for long but we can already see how the increased visibility of costs and easy implementation of approval processes will increase our efficiency compared to chasing down approvals manually and not really keeping a record of this.

Pros

Easy to Use Makes Approvals Easy Allows for individual project budgets and costs to be tracked Customer Support

Cons

It would be great if this software directly integrated with Xero so that when I add a purchase invoice in Xero I could simultaneously match it off against the PO in Zahara.

Quality software, well thought out

2016-08-16

We were fed up with getting invoices in that nobody knew anything about.

Pros

It's intuitive and easy on the eye.

Cons

Would be nice to have a mobile app but it works Ok on a phone browser and I can approve spend just in the email without having to login.

Simple, user friendly purchase order solution.

2016-08-23

Zahara is a brilliantly user friendly system with a fresh, clean user interface. As a cloud based piece of software it has proved to be the ideal solution to the automation of our purchase order generation and streamlining of our approval process.

Pros

Simple email notifications to approvers enabling easy approval of requests when out of the office.

Cons

We understand there are continuous improvements and updates but, the ability for the system to select the appropriate approval workflow based on the net total of the order, instead of the user selecting manually, would be a nice feature.

Really helps our business

2016-08-05

Really easy to use and the support & back is great.

Pros

Easy to use and I found the import suppliers very easy.

Cons

If you raise an order & send it, if you then want to add to the order or change it you have to delete it and start again which isn't the best

Really great software for managing spend and automating accounts payable

2016-07-02

The staff took to it straight away, with virtually no training - that's testament to the intuitive design. It's been easy to use, easy to setup and links very nicely to our account to system.

Pros

Ease of use is the big plus for us along with the approvals. We love that.

Cons

Very little if anything. It's updated regularly and the new features are always great and improve productivity.

Love the approvals

2016-08-08

The software is easy to use and very intuitive.

Pros

The workflow feature is just what we needed - nice and simple and easy to setup.

Cons

Only a small thing, but found setting up a bit time consuming but that's mainly as we had a lot to do.

Fantastic solution, ticks all our boxes and more.

2017-03-31

Fully customizable workflows and the approval process has given us more control and better visibility of spend.

Pros

The approval process in Zahara has given us more control and better visibility of spend

Cons

Single Sign on would be nice and the ability to add our own corporate skins/colours would be good. But these are very minor things.

A world-class solution

2016-08-08

Zahara has turned out to be exactly what we needed. It integrates with our AP solution as well so we now have a fully-automated purchase to pay solution

Pros

Ease of use and simplicity together with the ability to create very sophisticated workflows using the additional FileDirector system that is fully integrated.

Cons

We need a bit more narrative around budgets - the ability to set budgets on individual GL codes is on the roadmap which will be really good for us.

Great for project spend

2016-08-09

We run a projects based business and needed to allow the team to make project / job spend but to get it approved first. The Zahara solution has been a joy to setup and rollout amongst the team

Pros

We also like the way the coding mirrors our Sage accounts software

Cons

We would like to see a bit more analysis on the project spend

Zahara PO system

2016-08-30

We're still in the early stages or using the system so a full review is not practical at this time.

Pros

The platform itself is quite easy to set up and use.

Cons

Some features are currently in development and there are some bugs in the system however they are being fixed as found. Some features are not functioning for us but it is being looked into. The features at present are not fully to our requirements however it is hoped that it will develop and meet all our needs. Whilst we have had instant responses to our queries, it would be useful to have a support email for the users.

Really nice software

2016-08-08

The guys at Zahara are really easy to deal with.

Pros

Budgets were key to us. We needed to show our departments how much they could spend each month and Zahara does that really well.

Cons

We know it's coming in a few weeks but we wanted approval levels as part of the workflow. The team showed us the Beta and we know when that's released it will be perfect for us.
