4D Pharma are a pioneering company revolutionising bacterial research to create a new class of medicines called biotherapeutics. Due to 4D’s rapid international growth and the need to manage a complex multi-level approvals process across multiple countries and business units, the company selected Zahara’s cloud based approvals platform.
Not only did Zahara add the required budgeting, purchase orders, approvals and goods receipting process to the company’s Xero accounts system, it seamlessly integrated with accounts.
In addition to a seamless integration with Xero, the platform had to be quick to deploy, easy for employees to raise requisitions, gain approval from managers and enforce a compliant process for approving expenditure.
The Accounts team selected and deployed Zahara across the business. Employees across Europe found the software intuitive and so adopted it into their buying with minimal training.
Business managers loved Zahara’s ability to set and manage departmental budgets and multi-layered approvals. The workflows in Zahara are powerful, easy to use and have alerts and an audit trail for every purchase – just what 4D needed.
“Zahara makes it easy to is raise an order and has powerful approvals needed for a business like ours. The budgets are a great feature.” Sharon Turnell, Group Financial Controller, 4D Pharma
As a direct result of implementing and deploying Zahara’s purchase management platform, 4D Pharma has gained visibility and control of a highly compliant and best practice purchasing process across their entire pan-European business.
4D Pharma can now focus on delivering world class medical breakthroughs and continued growth whilst Zahara takes care of a best in class and compliant purchasing process.
