Posted on 8th August 2022

Aarhus Denmark, 5th August 2022 – Boyum IT, a leading software vendor in the SME supply chain, is acquiring Paperflow, an AI-based software solution for e-procurement.

Founded in 2015, Paperflow automates the process of scanning documents using artificial intelligence and drives efficiency for e-procurement users of ERP systems. The core functionality of the product is to convert paper invoices into machine readable text, and automatically post financial data to ERP databases. With its cutting-edge AI-based platform, Paperflow was recently announced as the “Top Digital Banking Solution Provider in UK 2022” by British finance magazine Financial Services Review. Today, the company has more than 30 employees and 1,000+ SME customers.

This acquisition enhances Boyum’s product portfolio with complementary functionality and is a key step in building a platform-agnostic portfolio of extended supply chain solutions. Paperflow will become an important element of the Boyum Cloud suite, with significant cross-sell opportunity. Its underlying AI-based technology enables synergies in other Boyum products to automate processes. As part of Boyum IT, Paperflow will also benefit from an extensive global network of software partners to drive the global expansion of Paperflow.
