QPR Software (QPR) and Swedish business and IT services company iStone (www.istone.com) have signed a reseller agreement for QPR ProcessAnalyzer, software that enables automated process analysis based on existing enterprise resource planning system (ERP) data. The partnership creates new opportunities for mapping processes, identifying bottlenecks and optimizing process flows especially to customers using Infor M3 ERP. QPR ProcessAnalyzer software utilizes process mining technology patented in the USA by QPR.
- With QPR ProcessAnalyzer we get entirely new opportunities to help our clients with their ERP solutions, says Lars Steen, President of iStone M3. With a quick and easy solution for analyzing actual process flows, we have a completely new method to find bottlenecks and improvement possibilities.
As part of the partnership, iStone will drive the development of interface connectors between QPR ProcessAnalyzer and Infor M3 ERP software and thus open a whole new market for QPR ProcessAnalyzer.
“Partnering with iStone is a natural next step in implementation of our strategy to develop easy-to-implement Process Mining solutions and connectors for various IT-systems. With QPR ProcessAnalyzer and built-in connectors to Infor M3 we are able to pursue a new global business area with iStone and other leading Infor M3 service companies. All organizations using Infor M3 can now easily get valuable insight about the efficiency of their business critical processes like order-to-cash and purchase-to-pay, among others” says Matti Erkheikki, SVP, Process Intelligence business, QPR Software Plc.
The next step is for iStone and QPR to jointly develop a preconfigured analysis of all key processes in Infor M3. Pilot project will be implemented during the first quarter of 2016 before a wider launch in the spring.
