Heightened level of automation and accuracy
expected to streamline processes, improve receivables cycle

Markham, Ontario, Canada (December 10, 2015) – Microdea Inc. today announces that Alberta-based TF Energy Solutions has selected Microdea’s Synergize document management software to manage key documents and electronic billing for their energy sector transportation services. TF Truckload & Logistics, one of 10 business units within the TF Energy Solutions group, has now fully implemented the solution and processes a total of 1,200 invoices in a typical month, representing between $3 million and $4 million of monthly billings. TF Energy Solutions plans to roll out this solution across all 10 business units located in Alberta, Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana and Oklahoma.

Recent growth through acquisition has brought an array of different technologies and manual processes from the various operating businesses. TF Energy is in the process of consolidating all the businesses onto transportation management system TruckMate® as the primary operating platform, integrated with Synergize for imaging, document repository and electronic billing. Separately, TF Energy employs Synergize to image and securely store key HR files for their 250 employees; this project was taken from concept to implementation in only one month.

“We had a desire to get rid of paper files, improve administrative efficiencies, and provide a heightened level of security around key documents. This was the primary driver for selecting Synergize,” says Gord Bloom, Vice President, Finance, TF Energy Solutions. “On the billing side, historically our process had many shortcomings. With Synergize, we will achieve significant administrative efficiencies and deliver a better customer experience.”

Future plans include using Synergize for Accounts Payable, and integrating Synergize with the Cortex third party payment system to further streamline billing; a pilot project is currently underway. Ultimately, TF Energy Solutions aims to introduce Synergize into all of their business units for imaging, document management and electronic billing.

States Microdea CEO Steve Divitkos, “The rapid adoption of Synergize by TF Energy Solutions is impressive. They’ve already realized the primary benefits of the software, and we’re very pleased to hear of their plans for rolling out Synergize in the future to automate even more business processes.”
