Look at how much of your spend has discounts enabled, and how much of this you are able to take advantage of. You’ll then be able to work out how much your purchase-to-pay operations are saving or losing as a result. Minit Process Mining offers the opportunity to identify the causes of unused discount potentials in order to gain liquidity margins.
Initiatives and projects in business process management often have a direct impact on company success. However, many companies are still much more concerned with documenting the target processes rather than with the review of the process performance of actual operations. But in practice, business processes often significantly differ from documented business processes. Minit Process Mining helps you perform a quick comparison of the set process and the actual way it is run, to automatically recognize process deviations.
Your procurement/ ERP/ invoicing system records all events from Purchase Requisition creation to Invoice Payment, marking when each event took place. From this data, our Process Mining software re-creates a model of the entire procurement process.
By adding case attributes such as vendor, purchasing organization, payment terms, cash discount dates, transport conditions to the model you can see where mistakes occur, time periods when they happen, which employees are involved, or which vendors follow which process variations most frequently.
