"All of our purchases occur outside of Sweden, and for several years, we struggled with manual work for international payments as well as very high currency exchange and transaction fees. Until we started using Lesslie Pay, it consumed a significant amount of my time to administer this.”
- Jakob Nachtweij, Co-founder and CFO at Medfour
Payments in other currencies = a Complicated process
Payments to countries with currencies other than the Swedish Krona can be complex and costly. Medfour, which deals in EUR, GBP, and USD, has faced challenges in its accounting when it comes to international payments due to manual work and high exchange and transaction costs.
Improvement needed in handling international payments for accounting firms
Before the implementation of Lesslie, handling international payments was a time-consuming and intricate process. This included manually identifying and segregating foreign suppliers from domestic ones, as well as manually setting up each foreign supplier for payment with the bank. This process, in itself, took a significant amount of time.
After the payment was made, further manual work was required to calculate currency exchange losses and gains. This process was not only time-consuming but also prone to human errors. With Lesslie, these challenges have now been streamlined and, in many cases, completely eliminated, according to Anton Wislander, CEO and founder of the accounting firm Categoria.
"As a small business owner, it can sometimes be challenging to let go of control over tasks. However, we are very pleased with our choice of Categoria Group as our full-service accounting firm. Completely digital and outstanding in communication!”

That includes providing advice and deepening our relationships, says Anton Wislander, CEO and founder of Categoria.
”Before Lesslie, international payments were a time-consuming nightmare. Now, it's simple and quick, which has liberated us from routine work and allowed us to offer even more tailored advice and service to our clients.”
