The companies said in a Monday (July 12) news release that this new tool will provide greater transparency to businesses that use SAP systems.
“More and more customers focus on the digitalization of their processes, structures and services,” said Gregor Greinke, CEO of GBTEC.
“ERP systems such as SAP in particular benefit from a data-driven management of their processes. With many years of SAP excellence and over 400 SAP experts around the world, Arvato Systems is the right partner to intelligently link process mining and SAP.”
As PYMNTS reported last year, process mining involves a deep dive into company workflows to find bottlenecks and seek out alternatives and then execute the best workflow to achieve the company’s goals. When successful, this practice can help companies improve buyer-supplier cooperation and enhance their cash flow.
SAP interface provides standard transfers for crucial end-to-end processes along with top IT and data security. According to the news release, the connector supports end-to-end processes that include order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, and record-to-report.
The companies say the modules are “complemented by custom performance dashboards built on top of Apromore/BIC Process Mining,” which allows managers to track relevant performance indicators for all critical processes.
GBTEC and Arvato have worked together for several years on process management, having carried out more than 100 projects in the last decade.
“We have valued GBTEC as a partner for process-based digitalization for many years,” said Oliver Becker, Ph.D., vice president at Arvato Systems.
“Enterprises that want to better understand their SAP processes, design them efficiently and make them fit for the future will benefit from this new integration capability,” Becker said. “With intelligent process recognition and analysis, complete processes can now be created almost completely from automation, saving companies time and money at every step of the process.”
