Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Has useful tools, it's very easy to use events

Pros and Cons

  • "It is very easy to use events. K2 has useful tools."
  • "It is very flexible because you can design your own main forms, but if there were some templates according to your market, it would be more useful for a new customer. That would make K2 more user friendly and easier to use."

What other advice do I have?

It is very flexible but that also means that it has too many tools. It is hard to stop. You can do whatever you want but this takes practice to understand how to use this solution best. If you need to integrate into anything, K2 is very useful. I advise you to be organized from the outset, before starting the project. This is very important. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. We have examined too many workflows. Some are better, but this one is good enough.

This is a good solution and it is easy to implement. I think that it adds value to any organization, mainly in terms of business applications where you need workflows.

Scalability, good performance, the designer to create workflows are the most valuable features. Sometimes it is too difficult to manage the workflow instances.

What other advice do I have?

It is a very good solution to implement simple workflows with little integration. The integration could be better, but for simple workflows with simple integrations, it is a good product.
