ABOUT

portalink

our vision.

In 2007, we set out on a mission to eliminate wasteful data entry by streamlining purchase order processing. We wanted to be different from other software companies with a can-do attitude, transparent pricing, and great customer service.

 

At the time, fax was still the predominant ordering method for the ‘long tail’ of non-EDI trading partners.

 

We were adventurous, often going where others didn’t. We were an early innovator of cloud software at a time when most companies believed cloud had no place in big business.

 

Not everything we did was a commercial success, but what we learned was invaluable as we strived to reach an unprecedented level of process automation.

 

We are proud of our journey and the leading edge technology we have developed. Our software has transcended beyond our wildest dreams, a mere shadow of what we envisaged in 2007, and we are delivering great automation outcomes. Our broad list of customers includes leading multinational companies across a vast array of industries and continents.

 

We are equally excited about what lies ahead. Our product is constantly evolving as we strive to solve complex problems and achieve unprecedented automation outcomes. The technology suite that we have been building for over a decade has opened unexpected doors, including the disrupting technology we now call Vendor Exchange which is changing the way organisations think about procurement.
