Kennards Self Storage enjoy efficient and simple-to-use AP Automation from Medius

SYDNEY, 20 May 2021, Kennards Self Storage, one of the largest Self Storage operators in Australasia, sought a new AP automation solution for their storing centers. With multiple sites across Australia and New Zealand, they needed an AP solution that could be quickly implemented and easily used by its staff, with a user interface that made it simple for the end-users.

Anthony Rous, Chief Financial Officer, at Kennards Self Storage, was impressed with the solution Medius offered its AP function “We considered some suppliers that provided generic solutions but what we loved about Medius is that its focused and gets the job done.”

He added: “Medius ticked all the boxes for AP and does it efficiently and simply. It’s cost effective and cloud-based so we never have to worry about upgrades, storage and data.”

After implementing Medius AP Automation Kennards Self Storage has streamlined its accounts payable process. Kennards Self Storage enjoys efficiency gains and reduced pain points in the finance department and storage centres.

Per Åkerberg, Medius CEO, said “We’re delighted to have brought class-leading AP Automation to Kennards Self Storage.

“Like many of our clients, manual tasks have been eliminated in their accounts payable team.”

Medius integration prowess with ERP technology was a key part of why Kennards Self Storage chose the spend management provider. Rous said, “The Medius AP Automation solution and integration with Microsoft Dynamics GP works very well for us across two countries.

“It is seamless between Australia and New Zealand. We have a complex cost centre structure for GST as well as group structure and Medius handled that easily in the set up. Apart from a few minor tweaks to archive automatic routing of invoices, we were able to use Medius out of the box”.

Rous’ manager was incredulous in his analysis of the results delivered by Medius AP Automation:

“After we went live with Medius I visited our biggest storage centre in Waterloo and asked our manager what he thought of the system. He said ‘Anthony I think there’s something wrong with it. It all just seems too easy’.”
