Complete visibility across workflows

Unilever International required a process automation platform to map out and simplify some of their more complex processes, which were not properly integrated with their key systems. Providing clear, integrated, and automated workflows would provide better visibility, especially for supply chain and finance processes. This would also reduce time employees spent chasing colleagues for approvals and manually updating data to ensure compliance with international shipping and pricing processes. 

Working with Bizagi implementation partner, Nividous, Unilever International used Bizagi’s low-code platform as a user-friendly interface to manage large data sets. Integrations with key applications, such as SAP and DocuSign, provided an easy and reliable way to ensure data was up-to-date and decisions were approved on-time by the correct people. Visibility of workflows including customer shipping information maintenance and customer pricing frameworks improved accountability and accuracy of information across the business while automation contributed to halving pricing approval times.

We couldn’t be happier with the rollout... Users now have visibility of the status of every single request and can follow up with team members to close the action. If we don’t have the right approvals, it leads to leakage in profits, so the controls in Bizagi have really helped the business.”
