Operational inefficiencies and errors can have a major impact on the ability to adapt to a fast-paced environment. Organisations must constantly reinvent themselves to remain relevant in their sector. Besides these challenges, huge potential lies in efficiently designing new procedures and processes to cope with these changes. Thanks to the process of digitalization on every level within an organization, more data than ever is available about how processes work in reality. Converting this data into new insights can provide a wealth of information and lead to a more efficient operation of the organisation and reduce costs. 

By using a Process Mining tool like PAFnow, it is possible to see patterns, identify inefficiencies and their causes. Through Process Mining you can learn faster and make better (data-driven) decisions for more efficient processes. Process Mining will be of added value for everyone who is concerned with Process Management and process optimisation. 


Processes today are manually tested though interviews, research and analysis and often compared to an ideal theoretical model. This way of working will always be limited when talking about achieving complete transparency and knowing how processes actually work. Therefore, adjustments based on these findings do not always have the desired effect. Process Mining tools are made to deal with the complexity inherent to business processes. With PAFnow, the process data is used as a starting point, which is visualized in an intuitive and efficient way. By starting from the data itself, you allow to get an objective view on how each business process actually runs and directs our focus to areas that need to be adjusted.

Besides having ability to analyse processes with objective data, PAFnow is bringing much more to the table with following functionalities:

  • Out-of-the-Box products and visuals. Dashboards and custom PAFnow visuals help you to quickly get started with a Process Mining tool.
  • Complete integration intro Microsoft Office 365. PAFnow is fully integrated in Power BI and therefore enjoys numerous advantages in terms of integration, connectors and sharing possibilities.
