Zomato is an online food delivery service that allows users to order food from restaurants via their website. This company was created in 2008. In less than 2 years it became the market leader in online food industry in India. Till date, it has 50 thousand menus from 12 thousand restaurants and a fleet of delivery personnel who cover 125 cities across 11 states. Due to this, thousands of orders are placed for restaurants through Zomato. This makes Zomato in charge of collecting payments from customers. Verifying all these payments collected is not easy.

Hence, Cointab’s software can take care of the verification process for you. It verifies the amounts collected and paid by Zomato. It links the Zomato report, Urbanpiper report and the POS report. after linking these reports, the software creates an output showing the amounts charged. The software also highlights and shows if the amount charged is less or more.

Result

Cointab prepares a result output after the verification of all the amounts and charges. It carries out the verification process by integrating the Zomato report, Urbanpiper report and the POS report.

Zomato’s data is provided in a highly organized manner, therefore it can’t be connected to POS directly. This is a result of the reports having different unique identifiers. So, to connect the two, a third-party platform like Urbanpiper is employed. The Order ID column connects Zomato and Urbanpiper, and the Urbanpiper ID column connects Urbanpiper and POS. Let’s now examine the output that was displayed once the linking was finished.
