Signavio Process Manager Other Solutions Considered

I can't remember exactly which solutions we were evaluating before we chose Signavio. There were five on the shortlist. We purposely went with a consultant to use their consultancy experience to help us select the right tool because we didn't have that kind of experience. So we used their experience and their guidance to tell us what the top BPM solutions were on the market. Then we pulled together the requirements of what we actually wanted to get out of the tool we selected and got the consultants to do demonstrations to compare and contrast. They all had the same criteria to follow and they demonstrated the options to a group of people. It wasn't just myself and my manager, it was a group of people who would be using the tool. We scored the options based on the criteria and basically Signovio came out top in terms of about five or six different areas that we were evaluating like costs, ease of use, performance — all those sorts of things were taken into account. We just crossed products off the list initially. One was ARIS and another was Bizagi. View full review »

There were different solutions in the pipeline and the final battle was between Signavio and Adonis. One of the decision-makers already knew Signavio and voted for the Signavio solution advertising its usability for both process managers and end-user. In the further decision process, he managed to convince everyone to launch Signavio as the new process management tool. View full review »

I had not come across Signavio until we undertook an extensive requirements gathering, market research and tender project. Signavio was 'head and shoulders' above the other 40 solutions we evaluated and is also one of the most inexpensive. Appian was another solution that was evaluated, but they are very expensive. It's a multi-hundred thousand-pound solution. Signavio is easier to get into and to build up. There was one other good solution, Orbus, but it's not a cloud solution. It was an on-premises service solution. Some other solutions could do what we wanted but are very complex and so large that you don't know where to start. Other ones such as IBM Blueworks Live is simple to use but it's limited in terms of the flexibility. We chose Signavio because it is intuitive, very comprehensive, relatively inexpensive and is a SaaS solution. It's a very good balance of the most important requirements. View full review »

Assistant Director at Ernst & Young
Our shortlist included iServer, Bizagi, Trisotech, which is a Canadian company, and Signavio. They were our shortlisted front-runners. We went with Signavio because we had an existing relationship and obviously we were able to elicit a lot of feedback about how they were already working with them. Secondly, it was a good preference compared to the other two as well. Bizagi and Signavio were very close, but we eventually went with Signavio because of the interface and experience.

I think we were looking at a few state-of-the-art vendors that are out there. They were famous ones like Bizagi, KiSSFLOW, etc. Signavio ticked all of our boxes because you have the ability to model in open formats, such as BPMN, they have a web-based portal, and it was simpler. The other solutions can get a little bit more complicated. This one was a simple, easy to use software that was good for us. View full review »

I had a look at ADONIS and from the first impression with a live demo, it was no as simple to model processes as Signavio, which is the main thing that I need in my workshops. View full review »

To get a more objective view, we did a study last year. This was an internal study where we compared seventy BPMN tools and in the end, there were four or five tools, depending on the use case, that we put on our internal chart list. Signavio was one of them. Depending on the use case, there might be one or two tools that we also would recommend to a customer. From an overall point of view, Signavio just had the best evaluation based on our survey. When it comes to high-end tool functionalities, they are very close to each other. However, with Signavio, it was also the support, the service, and the prospective. They are really trying to build some good features into the tool over the next one or two years. I'm very sure that they will outperform even the other vendors on our shortlist. View full review »

Head of Business Analysis Design and Engineering at BBC
Right at the very beginning, we looked at five different products with Signavio being one of them. We had a list of requirements of what we wanted from our process repository. We went through all five products, had demonstrations of them, did a compatibility and feature matrix against all of our requirements and three came out of that process. Post further demos we had done, Signavio was the choice in the end because it met our business needs. View full review »

Process Engineer at Swissgrid
We did a GATT / WTO and there were a lot of companies applying. One of our central points was ease of use, especially for the end-users, but secondly for the modelers. I think that Signavio was selected because of this. It was very easy to use. View full review »

The other solutions that I have seen are BOC ADONIS, Camunda BPM, and some free stuff as well. That had a few nice features, but I really like the way that Signavio functions. View full review »
Tiger Pillay
Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
We brought in an analyst to select tools for us to have a look at. We looked at ARIS, IBM Blueworks, and Signavio. We decided to experiment with Signavio and ARIS. Then we got business leaders to come in, have a look at the two and come up with recommendations. By those recommendations, we settled on Signavio. View full review »

We started this journey with Signavio two years ago. It was actually one of my colleagues that met them at an OpEx conference in the U.S. That's sort of been our top of the list choice since then. We knew we needed to prove to ourselves and the organization that we needed a tool. That's why we used that other blue tool for a year and a half to inform our requirements and get better at it. Then we made a case for it. I think the on-premises version was always important to us. We weren't ready to put all of our stuff in the cloud yet, but I thought we were getting better at it. The collaborative nature of it and being able to customize a lot of things that we wanted without having to rely on technology support is really good. Some of the features like the API for putting data in and out provide a lot of functionality. We did a pretty extensive assessment of other solutions, but we decided that this technology was the best of all. View full review »

I obviously saw that there were other BPM solutions, but I never worked with them, so I can not really make a valid comparison. I'm very happy with our choice of Signavio. View full review »
InkaBarg
Senior Compliance Manager and IT Systems at Tui
When I was looking for a new product, I had a difficult time finding a solution that covered one hundred percent of the service. Also, it was a challenge to find a good configuration, mostly in the customization, which costs money when you want to set it up in your own way. Signavio was really flexible and very customer-minded, and this is what I really liked. It is so easy to use, with good support. There may be other solutions that have more functionalities, but for me, this is not what I was looking for. I wanted to have a product where I knew what I was purchasing, I didn't need extra features adding to the cost. View full review »

We started documenting processes by using external consultants and they told me about Signavio. They had compared different systems and they gave us the information. We looked at other possibilities and there were not many. Ultimately, the Signavio tool gave us good performance over the two or three different tools that we compared. View full review »

PaulHoward
Managing Director at Aqetas
I just did a classic Google search. "What's out there in the market?" I looked at three or four, maybe five tools in the classic, "Have a quick look, see what it says." If there's a free version, let's download it, play with it. If within half an hour I'm not going anywhere, bin it. Next. I think that I did that with Nintext Workflow and just compared it to Signavio. Within half an hour I could use it. It's a powerful editor that very simply allows you to capture stuff if you know BPMN, the business process model notation. I knew a bit about it. It's very easy to follow and it's easy to implement in the tool. View full review »

ARIS was the only competitor. I installed Signavio because there was a huge difference in the cost. View full review »

Business Process Manager at Chal tec
With respect to choosing a solution for our requirements, it was the subject of a discussion that we had at the company. In the discussion, there was both the process team and the team that decided which product to purchase. I chipped in and said I had already used it in university, and said that it was good. Now that we have it, everybody seems to like it. View full review »
