Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The best feature is the automation.""There's this graphic that tells you how many lines or how many tickets are in each step. In that way, you know where you stand. I find this feature very valuable.""Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers.""The interface and the number of connectors that they provide are the most valuable features. The support here, it's kind of okay. But the main thing is with the number of connectors and the UI, the user interface.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products.""The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."

More Camunda Platform Pros »

"The product has a very good mobile app.""Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes.""We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features.""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.""Compared to other code tools that I've seen, Appian has a more robust rules engine""This is the most complete solution of its kind.""Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product.""Appian also has very flexible local integration."

More Appian Pros »

"This product has helped us to work within standards for process planning.""All in all, Signavio usability is excellent. Anyone can learn to use the tool quickly. This increases acceptance as employees are not facing a high learning curve. With the offered usability it is easy to model processes also live in workshops.""The most valuable feature is probably the nature of it.""Process management/Process governance is what we think Signavio is very good at.""The formatting features are quite good because you can create very complex models, but you can easily clean them up so that they look very nice.""I would say the collaboration features are very useful to us, because we are a European organization, so we are not in one location. This is an easy way to share with other people and ask them for feedback. That is the use case for us.""The fact that the repository is available on the web is the most valuable feature. It's a very simple tool. If you can use something simple and visual, you should be able to use the model as well in Signavio. It has the ability, for example, to track versioning control, so if you make updates to the processes, you have the ability to track the versions as well.""The most valuable feature for me is the collaboration point of view, where everybody has a single view, or source of truth, and everybody sees the same thing. Everyone can comment, contribute, and discuss the processes itself, which makes it easier to funnel down the most value adding comments and make the relevant changes to the processes. This leads to the next best iteration or version of your process."

Cons
"As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month.""The migration strategy needs to be improved.""The user interface needs improvement. It should be more tailored to the end-user and offer a better user experience design over the user interface itself.""I would like to see better pricing.""In the future, I would definitely like to see the process administration (migration, audit, tracking) and process evaluation (optimize) features added to the community edition.""If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device.""We have clients that want to use Office 365, Microsoft Analytics, and Power Apps. Appian just isn't the same as using something specifically designed to cater to the Microsoft Suite.""The solution could improve by being more responsive when dealing with large quantities of data. Additionally, they can make the decision or rules engine better. It cannot handle too many rules or too many decisions at once.""The solution could use some more tutorials to help brand new users figure out how to use the product effectively.""I wouldn't say their response time is long, but it could be quicker.""The solution could improve robotic process automation.""Lacks business rules management as part of the solution.""Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built."

More Appian Cons »

"Signavio already offers a wonderful range of functions. If variant management and customer journeys are optimized, Signavio can definitely bask in the glory of BPM tools. We also see optimization potential in the management of licenses, e.g. no named users but rather floating licenses and integration into the company's active directory.""The reporting is too slow and there is a limit of 250 processes.""The licensing model could be better.""If you start from scratch then I think this product would be ideal, but if you already have something then it may or may not suit you.""I think the biggest selling point that Signavio talks about is its collaborative aspect. However, there's still a lot more improvement in terms of what they can do, how they receive comments, address comments, whether they actually provide feedback, etc. There is still a little bit more improvement to be made on those areas.""We would like a better way to give users the correct permissions for processes, whether to view or design.""I think the intuitive handling is an issue which they should be more focused on, especially as we have issues with the glossary. If you want to implement Signavio within procedures in contact with other software, it's quite difficult to integrate and you will have several points where you have to double and triple the work, because you cannot maintain the data centrally. With other solutions, we can integrate it and have only one data transfer, to import and export with other solutions. A glossary is still limiting us.""It's very user-orientated, which is why I gave it a high rating, even if it is not perfect in every corner."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay for the license of this solution annually.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""We're using the open-source version for now.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""I use the open-source free version.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing can be a little confusing to customers.""The license is a bit expensive and the pricing model is sometimes confusing for new users or business users. It is difficult for them to know what volume of usage they will have to be able to purchase the best-suited license at the beginning.""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.""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.""The price of this solution is a little high here in Mongolia.""It's an enterprise tool and can be used by enterprise only. So it's a very expensive tool."

More Appian Pricing and Cost Advice »

"SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees.""We are only able to use the free academic licenses because we have a financial constraint. We are not able to pay for commercial licenses to use this kind of tool.""This solution provides really great value for the money.""I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs."
