airSlate

airSlate is well suited for any scenario where content from a form needs to added to Salesforce or similar. It's also well suited for any form that requires a signature and/or initials. airSlate is less appropriate if a form need to be filled out from a local drive. Although there are workarounds, airSlate is a web-based platform and is designed to be used in that way.

Appian

I believe that Appian is very well-suited to provide an approval work-flow. For making requests where there is a specific hierarchy of approvals that must occur, it is great. For example, if an employee needs to make a capital request for a long term project, the number of approvals can be set based on the amount of the items/work that is to be capitalized. If the amount is < 10000, maybe only manager approval is required. If the amount is over 10,000, Department Budgetary approval is also required. Over 25,000, Finance approval is required. Over 100,000, executive approval is required. Appian makes it very easy to set these conditions and send out tasks based on them. Appian also Excels at reporting. Appian provides the tools to report on any of the data that is captured in the request. This data can be exported to Excel to be used for audits or data management. Data can be reported in a variety of ways grid format, generate a pdf, or with charts and graphs. I don't believe that Appian should be used to replace any cost accounting type of functions. There are enterprise systems, such as Oracle that do a better job with that. Appian's strength is providing workflows.

Appian

  • I have observed after version 17.1 we have a lot of good features in Appian that improve usability (UX). This adds real value in this competitive Digital space.
  • You can understand business use case and convert it to a logical process automation.
  • Process Modeller has improved a lot and providing smart services use adds more value.
  • Service integration helps us to seamlessly integrate with third-party systems

Cons

airSlate

  • The mobile signing process needs improvement for more involved agreements with multiple signature locations
  • Dumbing down the html rules for those who would like to include rich text
  • Looking forward to improved page load times both while editing and creating and during actual use by team members and prospects

Appian

  • Advanced functionality requires use of the Appian expression language. The more advanced the logic, the harder it is to build with the expression language. This means development expertise is more relevant if you need advanced functionality, which I imagine applies almost all the time. I would much prefer if they allowed some common language such as JavaScript out of the box.
  • Debugging has proved difficult. It’s easy for developers to get the app to or feature to a “working” state but it needs robust alpha testing.
  • Deployment can be tricky. When a solution gets big and there are many teams and dependencies, it needs a careful process to ensure things don’t break.
  • Reasuability of Appian objects is both a pro and con. Reusing objects across apps may be more trouble than its worth because of creating heavy dependencies. Experience is helpful to strike the right balance.

We recently renewed our license with Appian. We are convinced that its flexibility, relative ease of use, the support they provide, there mobile advancements and their general willingness and desire to see us succeed all contributed to our reason to renew our agreement with Appian

It seems airSlate designers spent a significant amount of time ensuring the product is easy to use and appealing. They were able to accomplish this without sacrificing functionality and quality. The interface isn't cluttered and allows end-user to get going with minimal training. Designing workflows is a snap with the drag and drop "bots" (functions).

Great platform for providing business process management. Fairly easy to learn tool (especially now that I have seen the evolution over 5 years). More difficult to master, but there is a great community that is always willing and able to help solve your problem.

We have a mixture of onsite and offshore support by Appian and their partner Cognizant. Our stated support hours for the business are 9-5pm Mon-Fri. Cognizant being located in India provides us with coverage up to 9pm should anything happen that needs urgent attention. Appian Cloud Support are also there should we have any issues connecting to the application.

As analyst I participated in a developer boot camp. At times it was hard to keep up but most of the time it made sense. Trainer took the time to explain and slowed pace down to answer questions etc.

Alternatives Considered

airSlate

Tallyfy is a wonderfully robust solution but airSlate further connected the dots for us with the full integration to the electronic signature aspect of our needs. I'm not sure where Tallyfy stands currently on that front.

Appian

The main advantage of Appian is the cost structure that is more suitable for starting a test-project to see how develop in Appian and most of all how Appian is accepted inside the company. In few weeks you can show the first results and start the journey on digitalization.

Appian

  • Our objective to reduce customer effort when dealing with government by 25% was exceeded. In the process of applying for an alcohol licence renewal alone, we saw approximately 80% reduction in time and effort for the business customer - and that was just a prototype! Imagine the possibilities when this is taken into a live environment!
