Zahara has teamed up with UK Pegasus Opera specialists Cloudsis and Diskel to integrate Opera 3 and Opera SE with Zahara’s cloud-based Purchase Management software.

  • Purchase Orders, receipting & supplier management
  • Advanced invoice recognition and approvals
  • Projects, Budgets, Individual user permissions
  • Staff expenses
  • Mobile app for easy approvals

A seamless integration

    • Purchase requests are raised in Zahara and route into multi-step approvals
    • Suppliers receive a Purchase Order PDF automatically
    • Finance can accrue for orders raised and not receipted or missing invoices
    • Staff can receipt deliveries easily on the Zahara mobile app
    • Invoices can be emailed directly into Zahara and accurately machine-read
    • Invoices and orders are matched, exceptions can route for approval
    • Approved invoices export into Opera automatically together with the PDF

With huge experience of Opera and an unmatched enthusiasm and understanding of Zahara, Cloudsis and Diskel have created a tight-integration between Zahara & Opera. This includes:

  • Syncing of suppliers and coding
  • Exporting of invoices from Zahara to Opera

This then provides Opera users with Zahara’s key functionality:

Better buying starts with Zahara …

Your staff can have a Zahara account and place purchase requests. These can be approved by email and the purchase order sent onto the supplier. Deliveries can then be easily receipted. Once the invoice is received into Zahara, the invoice can be matched, approved and then exported into Opera. It is only the Invoice was pass over to Opera.

How it works – Finance team

The finance team have an immediate visual of all spend as its being made – even at trade counters using the Zahara app. Invoice processing becomes faster and easier – invoices can be emailed directly into Zahara. There will be invoices in Zahara but not in Opera but that’s ok because you can run off reports at month end for accruals.

Projects and Jobs

Opera is used widely in job centric businesses like construction. Zahara’s projects can be used for the allocation of spend for your different jobs. You can create project budgets with granularity like materials, labour, and hire. Whatever you need, you can set expected spend up front and get alerted when the guys start spending close or over the Budget limit.

How it works – Not for Profits

We also have a handler for ‘Not for Profits’ where you can buy true and specify the VAT. When it comes to exporting the invoice, we can “Gross Up” which is our way of converting the invoice to include VAT with the specified T9 tax code.

Mobile Buying

With Zahara’s mobile app, your buyers can buy out in the field. We have a neat solution for trade-counter purchases as well. They can generate a PO number and then photograph the collection note, so Finance have an immediate visual of expected invoices. You can also have your teams receipt deliveries easily photographing the GRN.
