Sweden’s Medius has established operations in Australia, completing a period of rapid international growth for the paperless workflow specialist.
The new Australian subsidiary is headed up by former ReadSoft employee Robert Bruhn, who is looking to hire technical and sales staff to tackle the local Purchase to pay (P2P) and invoice automation software market.
Bruhn points out that Medius MediusFlow offers more than just P2P automation as it offers a broad platform for workflow design, “MediusFlow is able to be configured as an on-premise, outsourced or SaaS solution, or any combination of the above, with scanning outsourced to a BPO if required,” said Bruhn.
“My target for Australia is to grow with the same rate or better than Medius AB. This requires hiring both technical and sales staff rapidly. The required staff must have first-hand knowledge of or certification in PMBOK/BABOK.”
Senior staff will be brought in from Sweden to install and configure MediusFlow’s first customers in Australia.
Medius Australia is also looking for OCR and ERP partners. Readsoft and Microsoft are existing global partners.
MediusFlow offers a web-based procure-to-pay workflow that can be integrated with any OCR system, purchasing system, and ERP platform. The platform is sold on a per transaction basis, rather than per user, and the only desktop software required is an Outlook plug-in that allows for invoice authorisation from within the email client.
An iPhone app has been launched and other smartphones are soon to follow, providing the ability to manage workflow on the go.
Medius has out-of-the-box integration with 40 ERP systems and 20 purchasing systems and it is currently in use at over 500 customers globally. Norwegian supermarket giant NorgesGruppen processes more than 4.5 million invoices annually with MediusFlow.
