Gives you the ability to design the screens outside the software and connect them as a component with the BPM engine
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It creates workflows to handle business processes. It allows us to route approvals to users without human intervention.
Our solutions using Nintex has been most successful in automating HR processes because it allows you to easily and rapidly build solutions that conform to the unique business processes for each entity.
This tool set makes it easy to integrate current processes and increase adoption rates and usage for the tool, as well as the process changes to update it on the fly.
It provides data accuracy with fewer failures.
It saves time as tasks are automated.
Only Nintex has the feature which allows attachments to an email.
I like the feature of getting an email for a workflow error, then I do not have to go through every instance.
This tool is really helpful in reducing a lot of manual work. Its drag and drop components help to create a workflow faster than SharePoint Workflow Designer.
The main factor that separates Red Hat software from Oracle, IBM, Pegasystems, is the ability that it gives you to design the screens outside the software and connect it as another component with the BPM engine.
Nintex seems to be very server intensive. It is one of the reasons that we are moving to a different product on the SharePoint 2016 platform.
Bring all features available from the on-premise product into the cloud version and the workflow error reporting.
Converting a document from PDF to MS Word, or vice versa, needs to be improved.
User interface could use some improvement. Perhaps integration with Visual Studio or SharePoint Designer would be useful.
Currently, copying workflow actions from one workflow to another is not possible. Also, the Office 365 solution is not as mature as on-premise.
While Nintex Workflow has pretty robust troubleshooting abilities, I think that improving the default logging and notifications would be helpful.
Built-in reporting on-prem is limited and clunky at best.
Hawkeye is emerging as a reporting solution, but as a V1 product it’s not very useful yet.
I think the documentation for the tool, the official documentation, is not as strong as in other tools. You have lot of community. That is good. But sometimes you need - when you are working on a big client or a critical process - to be certain about certain things. So I think that the documentation for the tool, from the company, could be a little stronger.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Our maintenance costs are reduced.
Offering a licensing model that allows for multiple small workflows would be a huge improvement to an already great platform.
Nintex products are expensive, but valuable. Licensing in on-premise was historically based on a perpetual model, where you’d license per Web front-end. However, they are switching exclusively to a consumption (subscription) model, where you purchase the number of workflows you think you’ll use in your environment, and can scale up from there.
Without any discount, you need tools that cost roughly between $80,000 to $100,000. That is less than with IBM. And on top of that you need the consulting. That will be another $200,000. So a quarter to a third of a million dollars is needed to use get started with BPM. So I usually recommend to my clients that they begin with a little project, with the community version. That way they don't spend $200,000 or $300,000, they spend $150,000 and zero on software.
