For me, what I find to be the most valuable is its simplicity and the association with Microsoft Office.

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.

It has a built-in capability to capture process owners and managers against processes along with other process governance roles.

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 enables decisions based upon processes that we do model, and ultimately move forward with.

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 would like the ability to add additional custom colors. We would like to color additional items to add notes to the blueprint.

The user interface is quite easy at first but process analysts soon run into roadblocks of limited functionality, which is disappointing.

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.

We haven't yet been able to dabble in case management with Blueworks Live, as it is not yet offered with the product.

The solution is a very basic discovery product so it doesn't have that much modeling capability. This can be improved.

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.
