Improved automation and streamlining with MediusFlow and S5 Consulting

Økt automatisering med MediusFlow og S5 Consulting

As the only SAP partner in Norway, S5 Consulting now offers MediusFlow for SAP, giving SAP users a wide range of new opportunities.

Many SAP customers use expensive, old fashioned and user-unfriendly on-premise solutions to manage incoming invoices. These solutions are often based on customer-specific Z-applications, Z-tables or SAP Workflow, with limited reporting options.

When these customers want to replace or upgrade their billing solutions, they should consider a modern cloud solution providing access to mobility, innovation and continuous updates and improvements.

MediusFlow for SAP is a next-generation invoicing system, developed in the cloud and designed to automate the invoice handling process in a very cost effective manner. The solution includes invoice capture, validation, matching, exception handling, invoice archiving and reporting. The solution has a certified integration with SAP and is available on all devices.

Integration with SAP include:

  • Integration of master data for invoice automation
  • Finishing (matching/exception handling) of supplier invoices in MediusFlow against orders in SAP. The invoices are submitted ready for payment in SAP.
  • Parking on the FI documents
  • Final posting of FI documents
  • Cancellation of FI documents
  • Opportunity to connect to and analyze order-based invoices in both MediusFlow and SAP, and match them automatically in SAP
  • Invoice image available/visible in SAP
  • Dynamically updated CPI figures to support continuous process improvement

Over the last years, MediusFlow has supported leading Norwegian SAP customers to streamline their supplier invoice processes. Many of these have achieved 90 % automation of their supplier invoice processing.

New times in S5 Consulting

This summer we have made some changes on the management side of S5 Consulting, as well as several important strategic decisions. Our partner and sales / recruitment manager, Tom W. Gulbrandsen has decided to resign from the company, which he helped establish in 2013. He has decided to take on new challenges as Senior Account Executive in SAP Norway.

S5 Consulting’s vision has always been “to create excitement through SAP”, and we have invested a lot in building a formal and relevant SAP expertise. CEO Sveinung Gehrken confirms that they have successfully thrilled their customers, both within mobile solutions, development and integrations, which is mirrored in larger projects for recognised Norwegian and international companies.

“As we have had enormous growth and a positive development, it has been natural to angle the enterprise through featured services and solutions to adapt to the market demands. This is especially important when it comes to mobility, development and integration, which we wish to cultivate” Gehrken says.

Tom W. Gulbrandsen was a central part of the startup and development of S5 Consulting through the first couple of years. The fact that he chose to accept a role in SAP is natural considering S5’s strategic direction. He will, without a doubt, become a major contributor to their centre of expertise.

“The opportunity in SAP came at the right time for Tom, and we understand his decision”, emphasizes Gehrken.

Gehrken will now be in charge of sales and recruitment, in cooperation with partners Håvard Grenan and Terje Pedersen. Initially they will not hire anyone for this specific role.


Rapid pace and new resources

S5 Consulting have throughout the last couple of years gained a lot of attention from larger businesses domestically and abroad, and the autumn is filled with exciting projects. There is a need for more resources, and S5 will throughout the next couple of months hire four more employees:

“We wish to gain professionally strong people with academic backgrounds, technical skills and 2-4 years of experience from the consulting industry, preferably from relevant projects relative to S5’s operations. If you think you have these traits, we would like to hear from you”, Gehrken adds. He is looking forward to embark on an exciting autumn.
