Everything you need to control spend and automate your Bill payments in this one application. Multi-step approval workflows for both purchase orders and invoices, GRN's, as well as superb accurate invoice recognition with advanced matching and automation.


Zahara combines the functionality of systems like Dext with sophisticated workflows for approvals and invoice automation. It is the choice for many larger small businesses looking to control spend and automate their purchase invoice workflow.

All purchases can follow an agreed path, with budgets, projects and purchase order generation and sending off all built-in.

Orders can be easily receipted on the mobile app, with invoices emailed into Zahara and automatically read and recognised, matching against any outstanding orders. Zahara is the closest thing to hands-free processing of supplier invoices you will find, together with all of the workflow capability to automatically export invoices into Xero once they are approved. You can even use it with Dext or other similar systems that deliver invoices into Draft.

Our customers love the way we display an order/invoice balance, allowing master POs to be sent to the supplier with multiple invoices recorded against it. They also tell us our departmental and project Budgets help control spend – especially for departments like IT or Marketing and for project-centric businesses like events and construction.

Zahara is an English language app from a dedicated team in the UK, used across the world including the UK, USA & Australia / New Zealand.

We have different price points based on the number of users and your order invoice/volumes. Our all-in-one, 5-user price of £39 per month is great value especially as 100 invoices can be read and processed including line items.

We love Zahara at 4D Pharma! It is simple and easy to use by all departments and at all management levels whilst ensuring the company is compliant with financial controls. It is perfect for purchase order and invoice management and is valued by managers because they have greater visibility of their department's spend. Invoices are easily matched with POs and exported to Xero via a Xero link which is an absolute dream (no more CSV files to map and import). Authorisation couldn't be easier - with all the details you need to authorise a purchase order or invoice sent to you via email. If you are a Xero user this bit of software is nothing less than brilliant and feels like just an extension of Xero. The guys at Click2Scan have also been brilliant and have always been available when we have needed support. Thanks again to all the Click2scan team. Sharon
