Process compliance

You are here

Well documented business processes is one indication of healthy business process management. Another one is process compliance, meaning full conformance of implemented processes to process models. Business processes should be implemented and executed according to the agreed policies, keeping in mind stakeholder and regulatory requirements. But even a compliant process may not execute as intended.

The focus on corporate governance, compliance, and reporting not only continues worldwide, but has intensified, with increased accountability. In addition, the increasing pace of data generation calls for more powerful analysis tools.


Process mining for process compliance

Process mining enables unbiased, fact-based operational audit and compliance checking. At its core is improved reliability and efficiency of audits. The main tasks are 1) process discovery, whereby event logs are used as a basis for generating an as-is process model, and 2) process conformance checking that compares the event-log-based as-is model to the as-designed process model.


Applications and benefits include:

  • Improve the efficiency, coverage, and quality of audits
  • Detect compliance issues for example in procurement, accounts payable, or accounts receivable processes
  • Highlight deviations from accounting standards
  • Benchmark process execution
  • Identify Segregation of Duties (SoD) conflicts, e.g. in Order-to-Cash (O2C) or Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) areas
  • Apply AI-powered root cause analysis to suppress exceptions and violations to mitigate business risk, proliferate best practices, and reduce compliance costs
  • Streamline approval processes
  • Uncover bottlenecks to increase process speed and cut costs

Customer Stories

"Process mining and QPR ProcessAnalyzer basically help you to highlight process inefficiencies. If you have a target to reduce cycle time, to improve your process, or to harmonize and standardize your process. You can leverage this tool to exactly focus in those directions.

The influence analysis is one of my favorites. It allows you to do a root cause analysis on what happened, why it happened, and QPR ProcessAnalyzer is able to showcase that to you. Then, you can build the story on how what kind of improvements can be done in the company based on that finding." 

- Fauzia Khan, Business Process Manager, Nokia

"We can replace opinions with facts and it is easier for people to accept changes when you can justify them with the facts. It's also easier to focus on those areas where the development is most needed. For example, you get away from sending emails with overreaching instructions how people should do certain things. But with QPR ProcessAnalyzer, you can now identify the area where the improvement is needed, and then perhaps just talk to two or three people and get the change done. It's easy to focus on things mentally.

- Matti Ketonen, VP Supply Chain, Metsä Board
