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

Pros
The product has a comfortable GUI and a good environment for users.I like all of the features. I like that you can simulate the processes and add the time standard.The free online Help and E-Learning is very strong.With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves.Bizagi is a very useful tool because it does not require you to program. The user logic is very easy to understand even for people who are not engineers or developers.The main feature of Bizagi is the speed to which we can automate processes and how we can modify them without a strong impact on the end users.The user logic is very easy to understand, even for people who are not engineers nor developers.It has an easy to use interface which final users accepted with much more enthusiasm than our ERP (SAP).

Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.It is easy to learn and implement.Putting details into the process flow and being able to link other objects into the diagrams are very helpful features.The most valuable feature is the ability to draw models quickly.The diagramming and swimlane features allow for separating business functions.We can easily add templates to SharePoint for collaboration.

Cons
It needs some better notation functionality.The performance could use improvement. We couldn't connect the processes to on one file. The performance is an issue for us.It is difficult to drive ROI on types of processes involving complex business rules.For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete.One of the features which could be improved is machine learning. Even though this product has been working on this topic, we can see that it still requires improvement.Also, the tool sometimes feels not so mature when we find random deploy errors from testing to production environment.It would be helpful if they added some extra features in the next update.Framework approach, which extends to reusability in tools, like Pega, for deployment management could be improved.

The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.It does not integrate well with other solutions.I would like to be able to present diagrams in multiple ways, such as a Swimlane diagram.I would like to see traceability. It doesn't have it. You cannot find one object amongst several sheets of Visio diagrams.It could use easier custom icon sets.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production.If they can freeze the pricing in a contract, I advise them to do so.It is on par with other BPM tools, but not as expensive as Pega nor Appian.

The cost of the software is reasonably priced.It has a lower price point than the competition.
