How we help Manufacturing companies

Invoice Processing Image

Invoice Processing

Zahara's "out of the box" invoice processing can be setup in minutes. Our inbox receives supplier invoices - just forward emails to us - where they are read, including all line-items, accurately. Your PO and GRN data can be made available for "in context" processing or simply export the invoice data to your ERP. And when you need it, we have multi-step, multi-condition approval workflows that can engage based on the rules you set.

Payments

Having partnered with Currencies Direct, invoices can be paid individually or in batches, regardless of the currency or the value. FX rates are competitive yet with reduced Swift charges, being better than your bank and easier than a non-integrated online provider.

Month end reporting
Are the approval workflows multi-step?
Yes. Multi-steps with multiple conditions, so out-of-the-box you can be up and running with little effort.
How accurate is the invoice processing?
Very accurate. All invoices are recognised centrally, which means none of our customers have to do any training.
My finance system isn't listed above?
Everything in Zahara can be imported as part of the initial setup using CSV files. Our main data hand-over from Zahara to your finance system are approved invoices. Can your finance system import a CSV or Excel file with invoice data? If the answer is yes, you can still enjoy Zahara to the full. If you'd prefer, Zahara can be used on its own without a finance system to control spend requests.
What exactly is Zahara controlling?
Spend. Costs. If every purchase request has to be approved, you can control what is being purchased and what suppliers you are using. You are then back in control as your business scales.
How easy is Zahara to use?
Zahara has all the features and settings that any modern finance team would want, without compromising on having a user-friendly interface. We wanted it to be accessible even for your colleagues who aren't in the finance department.
What do your customers say about Zahara?
They say "how did we manage with out this!"
