ZarMoney offers cloud-based accounting software that was founded in 2006 in Los Angeles with the idea of providing a simple and more flexible way of doing accounting. Since then, ZarMoney has grown to serve thousands of customers across the globe.
The software is intuitive to use and comes with advanced tools, powerful integrations and a wide array of custom features designed to help freelancers and small to medium-sized businesses stay on top of their finances.
Plans & Pricing
ZarMoney offers both free and paid plans depending on the number of users involved, and all are billed monthly. The packages are detailed below.
Free for up to 1 user and includes unlimited transactions and customer support.
Small Business package
$29/month for 3 users and includes all the Entrepreneur features. Well-suited for medium-sized and fast growing teams, the Small Business plan is scalable and allows additional users at a rate of $5/user month-to-month.
$350/month for up to 30 users and includes all Small Business features along with implementation service, personal custom training, private domain name and a dedicated account rep.
Although the Entrepreneur package is only limited to individual users, it comes with all the ZarMoney features, making it one of the best free accounting software options available. The paid plans are priced fairly, and you can sign up for a 30-day free trial on the small business plan. No credit card or banking information is required and you can cancel at any time. The company also allows users to schedule a demo when subscribing to their Enterprise plan.
Features and Functionality
ZarMoney boasts a robust set of features that rival some of the best-known accounting software. Below is a brief overview of the key features that the software offers.
ZarMoney dashboard is well organized and features a beautiful UI with charts showing your purchases, sales, expenses and other business performance metrics. You can readily view your total payables and receivables and history of recent transactions. Additionally, users are able to customize and personalize the software to suit their roles and to improve familiarity and simplicity.
ZarMoney lets you process invoices in a smooth and convenient way. After creating an invoice, you are offered options to fax, email, or print the invoice straight from the software. Additionally, you are able to set reminders and charge late fees for overdue invoices. The company’s Pre-Payment option also allows you to accept deposits for specific orders and hold the income in a separate account.
Approve to pay
Another key reason why we like ZarMoney is the ‘Approve to Pay’ feature. Designed to offer improved security, the feature provides the option to approve bills before any payments are sent. This helps prevent erroneous payments which can negatively affect your cash flow. The feature is perfect for businesses that have multiple employees and a complex accounts payable process.
ZarMoney offers some of the best contact management features we’ve seen. You can easily add information about your customers and vendors including name, phone number, billing address, payment terms and tax details.
When it comes to inventory, ZarMoney offers more than just item list management. The software gives you a 360-degree view of your entire operation allowing you to keep track of items from multiple locations. You can readily check the real-time status of products as well as sales and purchase histories. This can save you invaluable time and help you avoid shortages and ensure timely delivery.
ZarMoney offers both accrual and cash basis accounting. Using the cloud accounting software, you can easily set default sales taxes and tax types allowing you to track taxable and non-taxable sales.
The SaaS solution is web-hosted meaning that no download or installation is required. ZarMoney can run on virtually any device as long as you are connected to the internet. Recommended browsers include Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Opera.
At the moment ZarMoney does not have a full-featured mobile app, but you can still open the software on your tablet or smartphone browser.
Ease of Use
ZarMoney accounting software is incredibly easy to use and has a beautifully designed UI. The basic features are easy enough to find, and once you get used to it the software navigation is+ simple. We hardly had any problems, but should you get stuck there are plenty of educational videos to help you out.
ZarMoney offers great onboarding support. I found the customer service to be quite reliable and the help center search tool contains lots of helpful information. Enterprise subscribers get a dedicated account rep and personal custom training.
Add-ons and Integrations
ZarMoney is designed to be a comprehensive package that integrates all your accounting and business transactions with one powerful and easy-to-use solution. As a result, the company only provides a handful of accounting integrations. Hopefully, they will add extra add-ons and integrations with other software solutions.
