About us

We are a dynamic and experienced team with decades of banking, technology, accounts payable, finance, sustainability, and trade payable / trade finance experience.


Our mission is to change how suppliers are paid. Working with major international banking groups and some of the largest businesses in the world - we have designed a new AP automation and supply chain finance platform from the ground up.


With over $500mio in flows already processed across clients in 40 countries, our platform is proven and scaling quickly - saving $ millions for large corporates whilst getting their suppliers paid at shipment.

Read about how our platform works, the unique way we handle data and documents, and the amazing results that we can deliver - often without an IT project necessarily being required.

Prima componens

Our platform has six components.

Platform narrative

The six components fit together

Our platform is a networked environment connecting suppliers, buyers, financiers together to handle shipping documents, invoice approvals, ESG compliance and payments.

PrimaShip is our core module, enabling suppliers to be given a list of required documents each time they ship or deliver goods. The list is dynamically and automatically generated based on rules in the platform. Against this list, suppliers upload and digitise their documents which are automatically assessed for both buyer and supplier.

PrimaESG, this list of required documents can be expanded to include "proof of source" and "proof of claim" documents that are needed to prove to customs and regulators that goods being imported and sold have the right credentials.

PrimaMatch and PrimaApprove are typically used together, sitting on top of PrimaShip. These are analytical engines which enable suppliers to match purchase orders they hold against shipping documents - leading to an automated approval of invoices for payment at shipment. These components replicate the functionality of leading and expensive "procure-to-pay" ERP systems without significant costs and with almost zero implementation effort.

PrimaEarlyPay and PrimaSCF are components which push cash through the supply chain in advance of invoice due dates - typically at shipment. PrimaEarlyPay uses the buyer's own liquidity to pay suppliers early, and it can be combined with a funded solution using PrimaSCF - so that savings for the buyer are maximised.
