Transactions can be edited and deleted such as sales, purchase, inventory, account receivable payment, account payable payment, cash and bank, and general journal. However, there are requirements such as control on mutation modification, audit trail report, and mutation historical report.
Zahir Accounting can summarize the financial statement process, only enter the transaction form and report will be ready, without making double entry journal (debit-credit). In manual report, you have to record many things manually in some papers, make double entry journal which is hard for those without accounting background, takes more time and risky.
In short, Zahir Accounting excellences compared to custom made software are:

  • User Friendly – Zahir Accounting is made to be more simpler. Before we create the software, we have customer behaviour survey in using computer as the base to create a user friendly product.
  • Attractive and Organized Display – Usually, custom made software is not properly organized, button position and table are not in sequence, the forms are not standardized, and less attractive.
  • 99.99% Bug Free – Should there any bug or software error, many users will report the problems and could be handled quickly, while custom made software is used by one company and examined by some personnels.
  • Ready to Use – You could use Zahir Accounting as you installed this software, without a long and complicated set-up process, significant changes and adjustments are not required.
  • Zahir Accounting is made based on thousands of customers’ expectations and inputs. Therefore many ideas to be developed as facilities in this software. On the other hand, custom made software is made based on the customer’s ideas. Although the main modules are the same as Zahir Accounting, but you will find out the differences, such as its depth and less facility. For example: report facility in Zahir Accounting is clickable to display the transaction detail (drill down), interactive chart facility, edit transaction, audit facility etc.
  • Cheaper – Custom made software needs longer time to be developed and special programmer. Moreover, the cost is subjected to the customer. While Zahir Accounting divides its production cost into thousands customers, therefore the price is very cheap.
  • Proven Strength and Reliability – Zahir Accounting has been used by thousand users, while custom made software has not been examined, unless by the customer which requires big investment with high risk. The reliability means its capability to manage the large number of data for a long time.
  • Independent – Zahir Accounting is mature software, produced by an established company, focused to develop the accounting software and has many customers. These are absolutely different from the custom made software, where the customer will depend on the company. Will the company still exist in the future? Could the customer contact the programmer? Is there any time bomb which you always contact the creator? Etc
