Global Superfoods Company Nutiva Leverages M-Files Enterprise Information Management Solution to Expedite Invoice Processing


Tampere, Finland (PRWEB UK) 17 June 2014

M-Files Corporation, a provider of solutions that dramatically improve how enterprises manage documents and other information, today announced that Nutiva, the fastest-growing organic superfoods brand in the world, has deployed M-Files to automate its accounts payable (AP) procedures and substantially decrease the company’s invoice processing times. Nutiva is also leveraging the M-Files mobile apps to streamline its inventory management workflow processes.

The spike in mainstream popularity of organic superfoods has driven Nutiva’s explosive growth and has led to a massive influx in the amount of AP documentation Nutiva manages and processes, such as supplier and freight invoices. Nutiva realized it needed a solution that would enable the company to streamline its AP processes as well as ensure that invoices could be automatically uploaded and linked to its Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP system.

Nutiva selected the M-Files enterprise information management (EIM) solution because it was a flexible system that offered the robust workflow management functionality it required for automating its AP processes. Since implementing M-Files, Nutiva has streamlined and optimized its invoice handling processes and cut the time it takes to create month-end financial management reports in half.

“We evaluated several AP workflow solutions, but they didn’t meet our scalability requirements or provide quick and easy access to AP documentation,” said Inna Neujahr, Controller at Nutiva. “We selected M-Files because of its superior search functionality, advanced access management capabilities and mobile task management functionality. The M-Files implementation process was incredibly fast; we were up and running in two days. I was able to set up all of our document classes, access permissions and workflows myself without having to involve my IT department, and we quickly began to experience document handling and process efficiencies.”

Nutiva Approves Documents and Completes Tasks “On the Go” with M-Files Mobile Apps

Nutiva has embraced the mobile capabilities of M-Files, with a specific emphasis on mobile workflow and task management. The ability for stakeholders to complete tasks as well as advance workflows and processes “anytime, anywhere” using mobile devices has delivered substantial improvements in its invoice processing and inventory management activities.

“I love the way we can interact with M-Files from any mobile device. When I’m out of the office, I can easily find out if invoices have been paid, and even approve invoices from my smart phone. Our director of manufacturing can still review and approve purchase orders for equipment and supplies even when he’s away from his desk on the production floor. The mobile document retrieval and workflow capabilities of M-Files enable us to eliminate workflow bottlenecks, which improves our business process efficiency,” said Neujahr.

“Today’s workforce demands the ability to interact with core business systems and content from any device,” said Greg Milliken, vice president of marketing at M-Files Corporation. “M-Files mobile capabilities are enabling forward-thinking organizations like Nutiva to dramatically improve productivity by giving their employees instant access to the documents and other information they need to do their job, when they need it and from any device. And since M-Files is a true enterprise content management system, Nutiva employees can be confident they’re accessing the right information and the most up to date versions of documents. In addition, the ability for Nutiva to review and approve invoices, purchase orders and other AP and inventory-related documentation from their mobile devices enables them to be more responsive to their suppliers and customers, which in turn has a direct and positive impact on their bottom line.”

(OTC: ALGA) Algae International Group, Inc. first became interested in the cannabis opportunity last year while attempting to build a business to produce bio diesel from cold pressed algae oil. While the ‘promise’ of the cannabis market is great, the path to achieving the ‘promise’ is unclear.

Accordingly, the Company is starting with three incubated subsidiaries, and will continue to explore the introduction of additional complimentary subsidiaries. As subsidiaries develop to a viable stage of independence, the Company will spinoff such subsidiaries creating independent ROI opportunities for parent shareholders.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 25, 2014

Algae International Group, Inc. (OTC: ALGA), through its subsidiary American Seed & Oil Company, Inc., today announced it will work with a new startup, World Hemp Oil, to supply domestically grown and refined hemp CBD oil to produce and market the EpiVape© for seizure disorders.

World Hemp Oil is a wholesale distributor of CBD oil comparable to Charlotte’s Web Medical Marijuana (MMJ) strains. But unlike Charlotte’s Web, World Hemp’s CBD Oil is legal and available in all 50 United States.

The EpiVape© was inspired by World Hemp Oil founder and CEO Christopher Cain, who suffers spasms from a spinal cord injury and has been able to mitigate suffering with CBD oil therapy. CBD oil has been shown to reduce symptoms in neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. The company has a Crowdfunding campaign to finance commercialization of the vaporizer: http://www.epivape.com

American Seed & Oil Company is an early mover in the emerging state-legalized Hemp and Medical Marijuana cultivation markets. The company was recently recognized by NPR as the largest hemp grower in Vermont. The company recently announced Medical Marijuana Pilots in two states, a first step toward commercialization of a larger operation, as evolving state and federal laws permit.

Algae International Group, Inc. (OTC: ALGA), through its subsidiary American Seed & Oil Company, Inc., is in the business of hemp production to supply seed to the expanding hemp farming market for consumer products and construction materials.
