Procure-to-Pay (P2P)
Your Process Accelerator

The Procure to Pay process (or Purchase to Pay process) includes all activities in the purchasing process. The process flow starts from the creation of a purchase order, to goods receipt and receipt of the invoice, to the verification, to posting and payment of the supplier invoices. We explain how Process Mining can increase your process efficiency, which departments benefit most from it, the advantages of using the PAFnow software and the key features included in the P2P Content Pack.


Process Mining and Procure to Pay

Efficient Processes are an important factor for success. To carry out goal-oriented optimization one must create process understanding, uncover implicit knowledge and harmonize existing processes.

However, companies are challenged to measure their functional process KPIs and have almost no transparency in cross-functional and cross-module SAP® business processes.

Process Mining can eliminate these problems by analyzing your operational data – where the actual state of your processes is recorded! They can be found in the SAP® R/3 (ECC) modules MM, SRM, FI and CO, SRM or Ariba.

Increase your process efficiency with our PAFnow Procure-to-Pay Content Pack software!

  • Impact of rework
    Analyze steps in the purchasing process that were changed in real time. Once you have identified the change you would like to analyze, you can find out the cost associated, how the process flow varies when the change is implemented and what was related to the need for a change.
  • Maverick Buying
    Identify purchasing processes which lacked purchase orders or lacked proper authorization. Identify how often these maverick buying bases took place, how much money was involved and have an in depth look at how maverick buying processes look.
  • Supplier Reliability
    Determine which vendors have been reliable and useful to your company in the purchasing process. Slice the information by location of the vendor, the amount of cases each vendor handles for a business, and whether or not a business is delivering goods on time. Detect correlations between the attributes and vendors.

PAFnow allows organizations to get the most
out of their existing resources!


“The innovative approach of the Process Analytics Factory helped us to obtain a picture of our actual processes from our SAP / SRM data within a very short time. The facts thus obtained show concrete starting points for optimization measures and have ensured that mere assumptions have given way to complete process transparency”.
