Briggs Industrial improves visibility and efficiency with Medius
Founded in 1896, Briggs Industrial Solutions is one of the largest material handling suppliers in the world, and provides new, used, and rental equipment.
Like many distribution companies, Briggs has thousands of invoices coming in from multiple locations and suppliers on any given day, totaling about 18,000 invoices per month. Even with a centralized accounts payable team and 40% of their invoices being process through electronic data interchange (EDI), they knew there was room for improvement.
Rebecca Palomarez, AP Manager at Briggs Industrial, shares her enthusiasm for Medius and the peace of mind of knowing where every invoice is located.
"Increasing the efficiency and speed of the invoice process was essential for us. We had 2 to 3 manual touchpoints before an invoice could be approved, and that often included shuttling paper invoices across departments and physical locations. With Medius, we now process three quarters of our invoices without any human intervention, and almost all of our invoices reach the correct approver instantly and automatically."
