Many manufacturers seem to be struggling, despite reports that we (the UK) are 8th in the world and the jobs market is back on track. We have taken on four new employees in the last two months alone and so are expanding, growing and winning awards, all down to our lean approach and innovation. All our machines are designed, built (with British steel and components which we bought in bulk at a fixed price and our precision components arm makes the parts) and tested at our UK site and installed by our own engineers. This approach is passed on to our customers, who seek to implement programmed automation systems to streamline, speed up and optimise production, whilst ensuring better accuracy, safety, productivity and efficiency. It’s a sensible investment in the long run and we even secured funding to prepare the shipment of our machines with the internal construction of pallets and crates, rather than incurring costs and delays through suppliers.
Shaun Peal, Technical Director, Mattress Tek
In the face of a tough business landscape, UK manufacturers are navigating a maze of challenges, from interest rate hikes to supply chain complexities and consumer demand shifts. Despite these challenges, a remarkable 58% of manufacturers are reshoring their operations, spurred on by tech advancements and the opportunity of having greater security within their supply chains, without the hefty price tag which used to be associated with onshore production. And it's just the beginning, as manufacturers embrace AI and automation, with the promise of not just surviving but thriving in the shifting economic tides.

Despite these challenges, a remarkable 69% of manufacturers are reshoring their operations, spurred on by tech advancements and the opportunity of having greater security within their supply chains, without the hefty price tag which used to be associated with onshore production. And it's just the beginning, as manufacturers embrace AI and automation, with the promise of not just surviving but thriving in the shifting economic tides.

Doug Embleton, UK Partnership & Alliances Director
“Medius is a comprehensive program that allows my team to maximize their workflow production. It has given the team innovative tools to increase our awareness of clients’ requests at a click of a button. The automation system helps reduce a backlog of open items thus staying ahead and preparing for additional incoming invoices. It also allows AP clerks to see invoices with issues/errors that need to be addressed immediately. Audits are always challenging for organizations; however, this program allows AP to be better prepared. We can provide auditors with supporting documentation within an hour compared to days in the past. This program has proven to be a great tool and had a heavy contribution in SpartanNash winning this award.”
Chilain Backman, Accounts Payable Manager at SpartanNash
“One of Bilia's goals is to automate and digitize. We work with continuous improvement and lean in on our work tools, including Medius. I have 10 forward-looking and curious people in the accounts payable team who love innovation, which makes it easy for me to be a pilot in new exciting projects. We have achieved this feat as a team. Medius is a user-friendly, flexible system with a high level of knowledge from our partners at Medius.”
Veronica Ohlsson, Head of Activity Accounting, Accounts Payable, Banking & Payments and Service Agreements
We extend our warmest congratulations to Bilia AB, Land O’Lakes, Inc. and SpartanNash for these remarkable achievements. Their dedication to excellence, innovation, and leadership in the accounts payable domain is truly commendable and inspiring. We look forward to continuing on this journey with them, and hope to take them from strength to strength with our AI and automation tools."
Jim Lucier, CEO at Medius
Should I approve this invoice? How can I change this configuration setting? What is this payment for? Approvers, administrators, and suppliers are sick of the time it takes to process invoices or to receive responses to simple queries. Using AI as the first responder, AP teams can instead focus on high value work and be brought in on the most challenging of requests, all while reducing the risk of fraud. For vendors, the technology means quick and accurate answers, and less time chasing emails or dealing with frustrating supplier portals. For our customers, the technology means time saved, and a highly secure AP process.
Karim Jouini, Chief Product & Technology Officer at Medius
AI innovation runs through the heart of Medius so I’m proud to deliver another effective and easily implemented technology for ambitious customers, both existing and new. The team of technologists at Medius amaze me with their ingenuity and determination to deliver products that push boundaries.

Medius Fraud & Risk Detection helps businesses proactively manage the risk so they can prevent issues.

Kevin Permenter, Research Director, Financial Applications at IDC
There’s a lot of talk in the industry about AI, and autonomous and touchless processing of invoices - but the reality is that many businesses, regardless of size, location, or industry, still receive invoices out of the blue for any service or product that has been bought by anyone within a business. This process is still run largely offline, and when these invoices are received new suppliers have to be registered and onboarded - leaving little to no paper trail, and taking place in a manual and opaque manner, detached from other parts of the business. Ultimately, this process and lack of technological innovation in supplier onboarding leaves businesses open to fraud, and less able to control spend. This is why we’ve updated the supplier onboarding solution for Medius customers - increasing efficiency and reducing risk
Daniel Ball, EVP Product, Medius,
Our procurement teams can be confident that all information provided by the supplier is captured correctly, quickly and efficiently, and approved via the appropriate channels.
Simon Madders, Project Implementation Manager, Mitchells & Butlers
With hundreds of invoices and in excess of 500 vendors, PENTA needed a reliable and feature-rich solution for processing payments. We conducted a search and compared Medius to at least three other providers. Other solutions made promises but only Medius could deliver what we needed.
Daryll Franco, Senior Accountant at The PENTA Building Group
We’re honored The PENTA Building Group selected Medius to digitally transform its manual payment process system. Through Medius Pay, we’ve seen a substantial reinvention and simplification of PENTA’s complex spend management process, where manual processing of hundreds of invoices for more than 500 vendors proved costly and time consuming. Medius also understands the importance of strong vendor relationships and worked to eliminate manual invoices, increasing the efficiency and visibility of supplier payments in real-time.
Mary Flynn Barton, Senior Vice President, Sales at Medius

In my new role as CTO, I’m excited to accelerate the innovation at Medius, investing in new technology areas which hold ample opportunity to ultimately bring more value to customers in this current economic climate

Daniel Ball, SVP Innovation, Medius

By bringing payments processing within the platform, we can provide this service to our U.S. customers. Going forward we will continue to invest across the procure-to-pay process, and double-down on fraud and risk mitigation.
