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 Process Mining software in Power BI and the P2P solution!

PAFnow P2P tool
- Impact of rework
Analyze steps in the procure to pay 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 p2p 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.

POWERFUL SUCCESS STORY
“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”.
