Medius has achieved impressive growth that is being driven by strong demand for its innovative cloud-based invoice automation technology,” said Jan-Olivier Fillols, a principal at Marlin. “We are pleased to welcome Medius to our family of software businesses and are excited to support the company’s vision of helping more organizations cost-effectively automate and reduce time-consuming, manual tasks and improve employee productivity.
