Who is Kennards?

A family business since 1973, Kennards owns and operates 100 locations with 77,000 storage spaces for personal and business use.

What was the challenge?

With complex invoices, manual 2 and 3-way matching was difficult. And with plans for growth, the department would soon be processing even more invoices.

How did we help?

Kennards was able to handle a larger volume of invoices with greater efficiency while lowering headcount. Automation of manual processes eliminates paper and printing.

"After we went live with Medius, I visited our biggest storage center 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'."
