What is most valuable?The feature that I found most valuable is the ability to impersonate the users so that high-level access to certain resources can be provided. For example, impersonating the super admin allows you to… more»

What needs improvement?The timer jobs that we have would never run on time. If you have a complex workflow, Nintex would just error out of it, without giving a "why" and "where". Error reporting is something that definitely… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Nintex was chosen as the first option.

What is most valuable?The Vizio-style designer that runs in the browser is, to me, by far the most valuable feature of the solution. It means that the customer doesn’t have to install any client tools to create powerful workflows. Another feature that is very close in importance is that it leverages the out-of-the-box… more»
How has it helped my organization?The biggest improvement to the organizations that I work with is that it allows the users to reduce, if not eliminate completely, the amount of human interaction, for both complex as well as simple business processes. This allows the users more time to focus on aspects of their work that can have… more»
What needs improvement?While Nintex Workflow has pretty robust troubleshooting abilities, I think that improving the default logging and notifications would be helpful. Many times we work with clients that have started a workflow, but find that it doesn’t work as they expect, and need assistance in troubleshooting and… more»
What other advice do I have?I have used Nintex Workflow 2010 and Nintex Worflow 2013. I have not worked with a client that has the most recent version deployed. Overall, I would rank Nintex Workflow at eight out of 10. It is a strong product and is definitely best in its class. It offers strong usability with the in-browser… more»

What needs improvement?The security features for this solution need to be improved. The only complaint from our client is about the annual cost of licensing and support.

What is most valuable?* Scheduling a site workflow is much easier and more convenient. * I like the feature of getting an email for a workflow error, then I do not have to go through every instance. * Conditional start of the workflow is the highlight of Nintex Workflow. * Only Nintex has the feature which allows… more»
How has it helped my organization?It provides data accuracy with fewer failures. It saves time as tasks are automated. 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.
What needs improvement?Converting a document from PDF to MS Word, or vice versa, needs to be improved.
What other advice do I have?For the past three years, I have been using Nintex with SharePoint 2010 as well as the 2013 environment.

What is most valuable?Being able to simply create workflows to handle business processes. It allows us to route approvals to users without human intervention.
How has it helped my organization?One of the processes that we developed was to allow requests for new login accounts. These require managerial as well as HR approval, then it sends workflows after the approval to a lot of different individuals as tasks for them to handle their part of the new user request.
What needs improvement?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.
