Invoice Processing & Approvals

With Zahara you can process and pay vendor invoices faster using Zahara’s mix of built-in invoice OCR recognition, multi-step invoice approval workflows and finance system integrations. Zahara is cloud-based so fast to setup and above all easy to use.

One of the main reasons for month end figures taking too long is the processing of vendor invoices. Each invoice has to be checked, keyed, filed and ultimately paid. Finance teams often process in batches causing delays. Zahara brings efficiency to the process using purchase invoice automation where possible, freeing up the AP team to spend more resource on cost saving measures and efficiencies, than low-value keying in tasks.

Hands-free invoice recognition and automation

Zahara has an Invoice Inbox where all vendor invoices are received and read by the recognition service. Vendor are identified, invoice and line item details read and any corresponding purchase orders linked and matched. Now invoices can be created automatically (We call it AutoPilot), and sent into workflows with approval rules – or processed much more easily by finance staff with just a few clicks. Invoice PDFs are securely filed away for the next seven or more years and can be exported over to the finance system as well, or into online storage like DropBox.
