Quotes From Members

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

Pros
In terms of UX design, somebody who has not had experience with ARIS will be able to use it very easily.The cloud version has the advantage that you can work on it from anywhere.Aris Connect opens collaboration opportunities between team members within the organization where they can actually submit change requests, navigate processes, and offer comments. It opens up the potential for BPM within the organization. I didn't see such an angle of a BPM portal with any other products. So I would say that's the best selling feature.In terms of using the cloud version, if you're somebody who, like myself, has got a lot of experience and understands measures and notations and things, basically it's unrestricted. You can do so many things. You can do your Archimaze, you can do BPMN. There's lots of stuff you can do in there and if you're a good field person and you cause yourself re-using things or whatever, then it's very nice, it's very easy to use.This solution has improved the way our organization does training.

Finding the right symbol and creating links, horizontal and vertical are the features I use.Another good feature is that the numbering of the shapes in iGrafx is much easier and more convenient, in comparison to what is found in Visio. So far I haven't found anything similar to what I have with iGrafx, in that regard.This product fulfills ninety percent of our needs, and we're happy as users of it.Web diagramming and RACI have helped expedite the process, capture, and ownership initiatives of our organization.It has simplified compliance with regulations and company standards.

Cons
It would be very helpful if this solution were more open and could integrate with other solutions like ServiceNow.The trial version of this solution does not give you enough time to learn how to use it, so it should be extended to one year.If you have multiple tiers of approvals into that update of the policy, or the process design itself, it takes ages to prepare those internal flows within the system.On an enterprise level, the ability to onboard somebody quickly is cumbersome because it just has too many things in it. It's got something like a hundred or more techniques and things in it.I would like to see more support for architectural diagrams.

In the next release, I would like to see more layers like three, four, and five. It might be possible but I haven't seen it yet.Dragging and dropping shapes is not as user-friendly as in Visio. In Visio, it's very easy to work with shapes and in very few minutes you can plot a whole, multi swim-lane, cross-functional process.It would be helpful to be able to do more analytics and generate reports on historical documents that have already been uploaded to the server.I would love to see a template and shapes for customer journey mapping.

My company is trying to replace iGrafx because the license is a little bit expensive.
