Have you ever been to Rennes in Brittany France? If so, then you may know the beautiful old half-timbered houses in the middle of a vibrant student city and the many culinary delights. Rennes not only produces the famous Breton cider and the delicious galette saucisse, but also first-class process mining. Process mining is a technology for analyzing and evaluating business processes. Fabrice Baranski and Daniel Cortinovis, the founders of the process mining specialist Logpickr, are located on the outskirts of Rennes in the tranquil community of Cesson-Sévigné.
The two engineers founded the company in 2017, which is still unique in this field, and reason enough for iGrafx to take a closer look. It turned out that this is a very agile, innovative business with immense growth potential.
“We have developed unique software, a kind of scanner that allows you to see exactly what is going on in the company,” explains Fabrice Baranski. “This highlights an organization’s strengths and weaknesses, improving both organizational productivity and employee comfort. Our mission at Logpickr was to develop process mining technology that delivers faster and more accurate results at scale.”
What makes Logpickr special? The company has created a new process mining technology that is coupled with artificial intelligence in order to fully understand all processes in the organization. Traditional mining solutions work well for simple, linear processes but fall short when it comes to the combination of concurrent and multi-system events. Logpickr developed Process Explorer 360 with machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, to inspect existing systems and reveal process reality, versus process assumptions in real business operations. Extensive amounts of data are processed in real time. This is incredibly valuable, especially for companies with gigantic data sets or high transaction volumes. You get the knowledge you need to make the right decisions about process improvement. The clear advantage is that there is no more analysis of incorrect process variants, no more interpretations, but a crystal-clear view of all processes - in real time.
After a few intensive and constructive discussions, it soon became clear that by combining Process Explorer 360 with the iGrafx Business Transformation Platform, organizations could more easily achieve success.
