Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

Agiloft is perfect for managing requisitions, linking those requisitions to their appropriate contracts (and getting the contracts directly executed via DocuSign or Adobe), notifications on upcoming renewals, spend tracking, trend analysis, contractor access management and ticket automation, audits, and much more. The tool flexible enough to integrate with other platforms but users need to be made aware of the requirements/limitations of the integrations.

Pros

  • Ease of use for both end users and administrators
  • Limitless workflow development to automate processes
  • Flexibility to integrate with other software platforms

  • Rapid Development: Metastorm is designed to allow developers to quickly build (or change) workflows. Business Logic, rules and regulations change quickly in today's world and being agile about software changes keeps users productive and engaged.
  • Customization: While Metastorm provides many pre-built controls useful during rapid development cycles, it also provides a rich .NET framework which can be used to customize the experience. This provides a nice balance between ease of development and detailed customization.
  • Flexibility: I've evaluated many workflow solutions, and most are restrictive in form design or branching options. Metastorm closely approaches a true state machine architecture allowing for complex workflows and rich user interfaces.

Cons

  • We have a history of quick but unhelpful responses from customer support. Fortunately, we are able to work with our implementation specialist when support tickets require escalation. There is a clear eagerness to assist, but the communication from support lacks depth. You have to be extremely specific with your desired resolution.

  • The Metastorm process engine is based on an older version of .NET. Updating to a newer version would resolve several known issues with .NET email functionality.
  • Metastorm builds web pages at run time. While the UI presented to the end user is fine, the Document Object Model is convoluted and subject to change with new releases. Providing a more simplified DOM or at very least a custom function to replace document.getElementById() would make client-side scripting a much more powerful tool.
  • One function that I've seen Metastorm competitors do well, is email wizards. Having a WYSIWYG email editor would be really nice.

I am very happy with Metastorm and fully intend to use it for the next several years. The only concern for me regarding Metastorm is the indications that OpenText will discontinue the product in the future. I have not yet evaluated Cordys, and cannot comment on how it will perform as OpenText's heir apparent.

Metastorm was used to meet specific client needs. Ease of use and navigation was one big factor
