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.

Converting a document from PDF to MS Word, or vice versa, needs to be improved.

What other advice do I have?

What do you think of Nintex Workflow?

What is our primary use case?

Automating business processes, such as employee annual reviews, new employee onboarding, and advanced approval processes.

Approvals are completed faster now that they can be done via mobile, using LazyApproval.

NWC forms could be better. The ability to build workflows that are not dependent on SharePoint is very desirable. The forms feature just isn’t as functional as the forms for SharePoint.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

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's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

SharePoint Designer and Visual Studio are alternatives, as are K2 and a few newer players in the visual workflow and forms design arena. These tools tend to be far more… more»

Get a trial, talk to a technical sales rep, and just go in and try to build something. It’s pretty amazing how easy it is to use, and trials are good for 30 days. Talk to… more»
