Unlocking the full potential of finance teams through industry-leading AI, end-to-end accounts payable automation and actionable insights.
The idea for SEMINE came during the oil crisis in 2016. The crisis required massive cutbacks, and due to the lack of automation of administrative tasks, companies had to get rid of valuable professional expertise. Our founder and innovation director, Robert Kristiansen, wanted to use artificial intelligence to challenge a function that was characterised by manual tasks and a low level of innovation.
SEMINE was born because companies spend considerable resources on producing accounting figures and understanding their own health. Our software removes manual accounting work, freeing up time for our customers to focus on the valuable insights she provides. SEMINE is changing accounting as we know it: she teaches herself, and has a broad skill set that includes autocapture, auto-posting, autoflow and automatch.
Today, SEMINE handles millions of incoming invoices and is used by 10,000+ companies. As one of the fastest-growing growth companies in Scandinavia, and a Nordic Start-up Awards finalist, we have spent years developing a world-leading platform for automation of data acquisition, cost distribution and automatic flow for accounting firms.
In 2021, Semine was recognized by Gartner as a leading player in intelligent automation, and in 2022, we were ranked number 7 in Deloitte's Fast 50 list of Norwegian growth companies.
