Overall good and functionally friendly system

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

Reasons for Choosing Zahara

Zahara PO system

The system seemed to be a good step between basic and advanced and we also came to learn that it's fairly new therefore being developed further. As such it was a good fit for our business requirements which is also growing. We didn't want an "all singing and dancing" system however we also didn't want a basic system.. Zahara was an ideal fit as we thought it would develop as we grow and as such meet our requirements for at least the short term if (at worst) not long term. The owner managed business was akin to our business and as such added to the plus points. The people behind the system were friendly and helpful from demo to implementation. Whilst Zahara does not have all the features that we require, it had the key ones that we required and as such it was decided to go with this provider. 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. 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.

Envisage Feedback

Pros

The sign off of PO's. Different authorisation levels etc. Sage integration Uploading of quotes & delivery notes

Cons

Runs quite slow PO's that are part allocated aren't adjusted for. posting invoices and creating PO's is a lengthy process. The customer ref. doesn't show in 'external ref' in sage. Reporting function is rarely accurate job no.s, cost codes and nominals aren't copied down in large PO's

Response from Zahara

Replied March 2020

Our aim is to make invoicing and PO's as easy as possible, based on other feedback we are doing a good job of this - if you would like to get in touch for some training, we would be more than happy to help. We are constantly working to make Zahara better for you, so your feedback is greatly appreciated.

PO's made easy

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.

Zahara is nice and easy to use

Pros

It is now very easy to raise purchase orders and manage our invoices. we used to do it all on paper but now with Zahara it is so much easier. it is just a case of click click done. I hate paperwork so this makes it easier and much quicker. the support are great, we haven't had any issues, but they are quick to answer questions and the demos are good.

Cons

nothing really. it has saved me so much time and effort I can't fault it.
