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

Pros
"The free online Help and E-Learning is very strong.""I like all of the features. I like that you can simulate the processes and add the time standard.""The product has a comfortable GUI and a good environment for users.""I find Bizagi so user friendly. I also think that its modeling abilities are great and it's easy to teach them to new users.""The API is pretty straightforward.""This solution is easy to use and it is a good tool for process modeling.""The solution's simulation capabilities are the most valuable aspects.""The most valuable feature is the simulation."

More Bizagi Pros »

"It enables decisions based upon processes that we do model, and ultimately move forward with.""It has the ability to document in different formats. It is not tied to a specific model. You can look at it from different angles and see the intuitive nature of it. It always generates a valid diagram. You cannot create something that is not BPMN compliant.""The solution is stable. All the refreshes run very well.""The business process discovery is excellent. The diagram or blueprinting functionality of the solution are very good. It's quite easy. You can link the sub-processes and get a big overview of the whole process then.""It has a built-in capability to capture process owners and managers against processes along with other process governance roles.""For me, what I find to be the most valuable is its simplicity and the association with Microsoft Office.""It's a powerful tool."

Cons
"It is difficult to drive ROI on types of processes involving complex business rules.""The performance could use improvement. We couldn't connect the processes to on one file. The performance is an issue for us.""It needs some better notation functionality.""I think that they could improve their update process. Some of the process mining techniques could be added to Bizagi. I think that they can improve their simulation abilities to include more elements of the BPMN.""The solution needs to make it easier to use RPA products on it. They may need an RPA specific interface. It would be better than having to make an RPA tool to use for viewing. Most of our work is about making RPA tools with the Bizagi, not using Bizagi itself.""I would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting.""There could be more documentation.""Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it."

More Bizagi Cons »

"We haven't yet been able to dabble in case management with Blueworks Live, as it is not yet offered with the product.""We would like the ability to add additional custom colors. We would like to color additional items to add notes to the blueprint.""The solution is a very basic discovery product so it doesn't have that much modeling capability. This can be improved.""The font size is really, really small and it's really not useful to print out process models because you cannot read what's written in different boxes. This makes it necessary for people to have access to the tool. We view licenses to see how the printing or output is. It's not very good.""The user interface is quite easy at first but process analysts soon run into roadblocks of limited functionality, which is disappointing.""It is BPMN-compliant but the tool needs to be more involved to get into a completely 2.0 oriented tool. It has a few things but it's not the complete BPMN model.""We don't like the user interface. It's complex. It's a powerful tool but it's complex to implement and requires a lot of manual work."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I think that its price is reasonable.""This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users.""The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge.""We have no issues with the pricing.""It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production."

"We are seeing ROI from this solution. The solution has saved us time.""They have a free subscription model that gives a lot of power to the users."
