Pros
This solution is easy to use and it is a good tool for process modeling.The API is pretty straightforward.With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves.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 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.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.

I like to use Visio because it gives me a quick view of the things I had to put in a model for a company. I don't use it as an interface, though.The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.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.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.

Cons
I would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting.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.For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete.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.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.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.

Something that needs to improve, is the interface interaction with other tools.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.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.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users.It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production.I think that its price is reasonable.

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