Overall good and functionally friendly system

2020-03-12

Overall experience has been great It was easy to setup business, users and documents requirements and basic workflows All help desk queries have been handled in a great manner and excellent efficiency Also great test-ability with allowing multi businesses and testing at full range

Pros

The ease of overall use, the setup of users and allocation of abilities Not used to full capacity - used alongside other in house system - used only as a PO generator and approval trail

Cons

Lack of ability to set required fields and over complications for multi functional divisions (multiple managers within division with workflows to each) Not used to full capacity - used alongside other in house system - used only as a PO generator and approval trail

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

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.

Great Piece of Work

2016-08-04

has been amazing and responded in no time with all the info and help I've needed.

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.

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.

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.

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 flexibility of the platform and the ability to create bespoke workflows ourselves is key.

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.

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.

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.

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

PO's made easy

2018-08-15

good

Pros

its easy to use, well layed out and functional

Cons

I can not see the contents of my PO's on the main screen, i have to click on the PO to open it, this is time consuming especially when searching for an old PO for say a printer i purchased, i dont know the PO number so being able to see the items in the PO without clicking to open it would be so beneficial and a huge time saver.

Great system for managing PO process

2020-09-01

Working with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] of Zahara was a pleasure and he helped guide us through a lot of changes needed as a result of implementing Zahara.

Pros

In addition, the supplier portal feature is expected to vastly improve the process for our suppliers to do business with us.

Cons

I would say there isn't much to critique, so far so good! :)
