Centreviews Expanding its Robotic Process Automation Operations with New Facilities in Two Harbors
Posted on July 30, 2019 by Liang McIntosh-Yee
Centreviews provides its customers with Robotics Process Automation (RPA) technology that offers simple and secure solutions to automate accounts payable and accounts receivable processes. Centreviews, the technology developed and branded by API Outsourcing, bolsters the company for significant growth. The cloud-based application utilizes software robots (digital workers) so customers can implement it without making capital investments.
“RPA is now vital in accounting and other back-office departments,” said Gary Halleen, Centreviews CEO. “As companies grow, daily operations become more labor-intensive. Our new RPA product helps organizations process and manage invoices, payments and other documents in a secure and highly efficient manner.”
Parent company to Centreviews, API was founded in 1998 in St. Paul, Minnesota and opened an operation center in Two Harbors in 2000 with the assistance of Iron Range Resources & Rehabilitation. Over 30 full-time and part-time workers are employed by Centreviews in Two Harbors, with room for more, providing the Two Harbors area with increased opportunities for technology-based careers.
Centreviews has been located in Two Harbors for over 18 years and has moved to the North Shore Business Enterprise Center (NSBEC), also in Two Harbors. Centreviews is proud to be one of the top employers in Two Harbors, and are built on the foundation of their employees. The move to the NSBEC will provide their employees and company the best opportunity to grow in Two Harbors.
“The new RPA coupled with the relocation enables our company to hire bot support representatives,” said Halleen. “We will provide technical training to upskill existing workers in the region as well as attract new technical workers moving into the area. Our employees from the region have always demonstrated hard work and dedication, which has contributed to the success of Centreviews.”
Several Centreviews customers are connected to the taconite mining and steel industries such as AK Steel, Steel Dynamics, A.R. Wilfley & Sons, and Crenlo. Other clients from a wide array of industries include Oliver Companies of Duluth, Delta Airlines, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and Kohler.
“Employees are often concerned that accounting automation will put them out of work, but research has shown that doesn’t happen,” said Halleen. “Instead employees find that their time can be spent on higher-level duties instead of very time-consuming mundane and repetitive tasks.”
