Who is Tikkurila?

Founded in Finland in 1862 as a small oil press creating linseed products, Tikkurila has grown to be one of the leading manufacturers of user friendly and environmentally sustainable paint and coating solutions for protection and design.

What was the challenge?

With a disorganized and often paper-based process, it was impossible to get a clear picture of where invoices stood and what liabilities lay around the corner. This also made the task of AP staff time consuming and tedious, limiting their potential output and contribution to the company.

How did we help?

Medius AP Automation gave all of their finance teams a single, streamlined way to process invoices. Not only did this get rid of the need for paper, but it led them to next level automation – meaning less than 10% of all invoices needed any AP staff intervention before they are approved and posted to their ERP.
