Because it leverages the data already in our system, credit analysts can get right to focus on the real task of making a good decision, without wasting time on data collection and interpretation – positive impact on productivity.We have already seen a decrease of 35 % manual credit changes. We’re very excited about the A/R credit app.”

The Celonis Execution Management System

Today’s business processes run in an extremely complex environment of hundreds of enterprise systems, some of which are over 30 years old. This creates fertile ground for process issues that even the best run companies cannot see. Celonis has spent more than a decade perfecting the science, methodologies and technologies that identify and correct hidden process inefficiencies in ERP, SCM and CRM systems.

Powered by its state-of-the-art process mining technology, Celonis’ Execution Management System (EMS) operates at a higher level than the underlying systems. The Celonis EMS uses real-time data from enterprise systems, desktops, devices, and third-party sources for “X-ray” processes. Celonis then applies intelligence to this data to identify the root cause of process issues, calculate business impact, and confirm the fastest path to resolution. Then, the Celonis EMS triggers automated actions in real time to correct inefficiencies and optimize process performance. This offers companies a new and modern approach to manage their business on intelligent processes.
