Automate the processing of supplier invoices.

We had a customer who had been using Zahara with Sage for a number of years and switched to Business Central. "We won't be needing Zahara now" they said. One month later, they were back. "Oh, their invoice processing and approvals is horrible compared to Zahara, can we come back?". So let's look into that in a bit more detail. Why would you use us if you already use BC?

  • Multi-step approval workflows for invoices and requisitions
  • Advanced, accurate invoice reading including line-items
  • Purchase Orders with receipting of deliveries
  • Payments including FX

Why Use Zahara As Well?

OCR Invoice Processing

Incredibly accurate invoice reading without any training. It’s invoice processing in its easiest, but most sophisticated, form yet. And it's great to use.

Purchase Requisitions

Scrutinise the important purchases and make sure they get approved first. Either Expenses, Capex or Opex. zahara makes buying easier.

User Friendly

We pride ourselves on keeping Zahara's interface user-friendly to give you the best experience. Anyone who needs access to the system will pick it up in no time.

More Secure

Keep BC for those who need it, and let the wider team use Zahara for approvals and requisitions. This saves on BC licenses for one, but Zahara is much easier to use as well.

Bespoke Workflows

Create and adapt infinitely customisable multi-step approvals. Choose your own pathways, without any coding or consultancy needed.

Real-Time Visibility

View spending in real-time with no time wasted waiting for paper-work.

Time Saving

Multiple research institutions, including Ardent Partners, have concluded that companies who automate can process invoices 81% faster than those who don't. With Zahara, we take this a step further. We have made it possible for all four of the key accounts payable components to work smoothly and effectively all in the same app. This both simplifies and hugely speeds up the process, without compromising on functionality or accuracy.

Take Back Control

You can now have control over your costs before you commit to spending. Set strict budgets for particular departments and use multi-step approval workflows to decline, amend, or approve purchase orders. You no longer have to leave your accounts to the mercy of human error. The in-built OCR will automatically read and upload your supplier invoices, you can sit back and watch.


Zahara doesn't become redundant as you grow. You can add more users as your team expands, and the system will be able to handle and process invoices where they would normally overwhelm a standard finance team. By taking care of repetitive tasks like keying in invoices, you will be left with more time for financial strategy and planning so you can be ready for whatever life throws at your business.

How does Zahara Sync with Dynamics Business Central?

Once connected, a full sync of BC data can be triggered from within the Integrations section within Business Settings. To sync just one element (Suppliers/Accounts/Etc), head to the corresponding area in Zahara and select the QuickBooks Online Sync button. This will trigger a sync of that one element.

Does Zahara send the PDF of the invoice to Dynamics Business Central?
Yes! The PDF of the invoice will appear alongside the invoice data in BC. Important to note: only the main PDF of the invoice will be transferred. Any additional documents added to the document history will remain in Zahara.
Can I map additional dimensions in Business Central?
Zahara has line-item custom fields, similar to Dimensions. These can be mapped as well.
How much does it cost to use Zahara?
Zahara had modular pricing so you only pay for the users, invoices and orders you need. Head to our pricing page to see the monthly costs.
