Smartflow is an intelligent transaction flow analyzer and a proactive metrics reporting solution. It uses scientific theory of constraints to pin-point bottlenecks and their overall effect on processes.
Smartflow is flexible, ie. it can work on all procurement processes. Its scientific flow analyzer and recommendations engine is proactive, the user does not have to perform any complex computation or workflow.
Smartflow provides visual process flow and helps in optimizing resources with significant reduction in escalations
Procurement viewed as a bad experience story by many
Lack of optimal human resource
Failures cannot be quantified because of data compexity
Unclear map of constraints within and across categories
Process leading to questions by internal customers and suppliers
Difficulty in taking quick & right decisions
Different and disjoint data systems
Long lead time to capture and report procurement metrics result into reactive process
Fastest way to temporarily pull data from core BW solution into a temporary hyper database.
Customize P2P process flows with metric assignment feature to highlight areas where data or process to capture data is unavailable.
Calculate metrics based on nominator and denominator, get unique principle factor algorithms to find key causes and highlight them in dashboard.
Apply lean and theory of constraints concepts and algorithms to highlight process flow constraints and optimization points.
Enable inclusion, exclusion, partial exclusion and special treatment of specific data sets, with user enable switch on and off.
An intelligent display layer which structures the data into smart tile views relevant to different levels of procurement professionals. The common tileviews are Metrics Tiles and Savings Comparison Tiles.
An engine with a mix of prediction, optimization and genetic self-learning algorithms. Identification of non-evident variations for cost savings. Automatic suggestions.
Allowing different users to view and self-serve based on access levels across different platforms like PC and Mobile.
Enables metrics drill down view from strategic to tactical to operational areas
Can work with all current procurement platforms - transactional, reporting or savings capture in almost real-time manner
We can create pre-set plugins for any category and industry
Can simulate what-if scenarios in the process to pre-determine possible outcomes
Faster, easier and a comprehensive capture and reporting - almost real-time
Comprehensive capture and reporting - almost real-time
Visual flow of the processes, constraints, metrics and volumes - easy to understand
Upto 20% optimization of resources and over 80% reduction in issues, escalations
