Pros
"Process culture is making noise inside the organization because now, everybody knows that their time is being monitored.""Since implementing we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed.""The process models provide self-documenting systems.""We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features.""Appian also has very flexible local integration.""Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes.""Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product.""In terms of interface, it's very good. In terms of infrastructure, it's amazing and already using multiple tools behind the scenes. It's a low-code platform, so it's very easy to implement."

"It's very easy to use. That's one of the advantages for the business, that you don't need to struggle to configure your website and your app service.

Cons
"The documentation needs to be improved.""We would like to have more granular control for interface styling.""My only request is that they decrease the license costs.""The solution could use some more tutorials to help brand new users figure out how to use the product effectively.""They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device.""Lacks integration with other products.""Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built.""It is also not easy to learn. Training tutorials could be improved."

"Sometimes we face problems, but those are technical problems in Microsoft, bugs or something doesn't work as expected, but that's normal.""I would like to see faster adoption and templates that we can use.""The solution is quite expensive. If you need more features, you need to pay for them.""I am new to the intervention and I find it difficult to find my way around the user interface. I have my own learning tool. However, it could be simpler for new users.""Lacking somewhat in template data flows.""The solution needs better integration capabilities on the network side.""Initially, there were some rare instances when the server went down because it was deployed on Linux."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost depends on the number of users, although I recommend taking an unlimited license.""The solution offers a monthly subscription model. That's what we use. I recall it being about $90 a month. They do have different tiers.""It's an enterprise tool and can be used by enterprise only. So it's a very expensive tool.""The licensing will be on a monthly basis. We are estimating that cost to be around $2000 to maybe $3,000 per month. We don't foresee any costs above that."
