The Process Mining Technology

New Business Technology for a New Digital World.

Every action a business makes leaves a digital footprint in various IT systems. Celonis Process Mining technology collects this data, and organizes it to create a visual representation of business processes, with 100% transparency. This generates key data-based insights for businesses, which Celonis uses to suggest the fastest and most impactful actions that should be taken to eliminate process friction, and achieve any business initiative, from reducing waiting times, to lowering costs, increasing productivity, and improving customer and employee satisfaction.
