Press Release

Expects to shorten the time from order generation to invoicing by seven days

Markham, Ontario, Canada (December 22, 2015) – Microdea Inc. today announces that Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK), headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, has selected Microdea’s Synergize document management and workflow automation software to manage key shipping documents for certain trucking entities under the Delek US umbrella. Integrated with transportation management system TMWSuite®, the company is employing Synergize to reduce the time from order start, through processing, to invoicing their customers.

Upon completing each delivery, the drivers scan crude tickets and delivery sheets via PeopleNet directly into Synergize, which runs the process to link to the order within TMWSuite. If the order is located, Synergize automatically attaches the documents to the order. If the order is not located, the documents move to a Synergize exception management folder for the billing team to handle manually. The billing team has access to the documents electronically in Synergize to confirm what has been invoiced to the customer and what has been settled with the driver. In addition, Synergize automatically sends invoices and supporting documents to a pre-determined customer email address.

Historically, this process took on average 10 days, as paper documents had to be brought by the drivers back to the closest terminal or yard for manual processing. With Synergize, Delek US expects to cut that time by seven days.

“Using Synergize, we expect to shorten the time between order start, processing, and invoicing our customers, and are aiming to get that to 72 hours,” says Dan Gordon, EVP Business Development. “In addition to having the documents sent automatically to head office, Synergize will also allow us to send the ticket information directly to the refinery for their planning purposes.“

States Microdea CEO Steve Divitkos, “We are very impressed with the targets that Delek US has identified for their accounts receivable through use of Synergize. We look forward to working with them into the future as they roll out the software to their other trucking operations.”
