The possibilities are endless once you start looking at individual processes. You really start to question why you have previously implemented solution specific systems when workflows and apps can do the same job without the added expense. You are really only limited by your organisation's ability to develop apps and flows. We have a high contractor population in technology so building an in-house capability is somewhat restricted.

WizeHive Zengine

Due to the experience I've had, I'm a strong advocate that it's the perfect system for a small or mid-sized organization to utilize because of it's ease of use for both the customer and the staff. I don't have first hand experience for where it may be less appropriate, so it's hard for me to offer an opinion on that.

Pros

  • Easy to modify the appreance of a form: you can do it with users.
  • Flexibility: you can really create a lot of different apps for different topics.
  • The speed in development in order to have the first functional mock-up as soon as possible.

  • It has made the application, which is almost identical to the application questions previously displayed by our old service, seem less daunting and more user friendly to grant applicants.
  • The grant review team has exclaimed that the side-by-side review option is the best feature ever invented and has saved them loads of paper.
  • Internally, I appreciate the ease of use of the back end system. Being able to easily assign grants to reviews both in and outside the organization, easily create queries for the stats I need, and the ability to move application through the steps of the system seamlessly make this my top choice since I'm the only staff member dedicated to the Foundation which leaves me with lots on my plate to balance.

Cons

  • Process Modeling - Appian is currently moving away from their desktop portal model and into web-based access. This requires some significant reworking of their underlying structures. That being said, their new technology and modeling options are extremely exciting and should provide significant enhancements and flexibility over the plain portal environment option.
  • Form Design - I would like to see greater flexibility in form design and form preview.
  • Training - Appian offers a plethora of training but the ability to tailor training to meet specific needs of an audience would be a welcomed addition.
  • Reports - There needs to be greater flexibility in configuring and printing of reports.

  • I haven't found any yet. At this point, I'm thrilled with each of the features and the ease of use of the system.

Usability

It has been easy so far to use what I have learned, but I have not learned enough to use the application in great detail.

The fact that just 1 staff member can manage to run the entire system on top of their other responsibilities has been a dream.

We have only ever had one major issue arrive the night before our second grant cycle of the year opened and the team at WizeHive came to the rescue within hours ensuring that we were back up and running with no issues.

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.

Their design team gave us the option to save some money by creating the forms ourselves for both the submission and review portals. This also allowed us to get to a point where we felt very comfortable in any future changes that would need to be made to forms since we were so immersed in creating them.

Alternatives Considered

I was not involved in the initial analysis but I know Appian came close with Pegasystems in the intelligent business process management suite.

I wasn't working with the USTA Florida team when they were using GIFTS, so I'm unable to compare. When I came into the organization they were already on their search to find a system to replace Blackbaud and had closed their grant applications for over a year since they didn't have someone dedicated to focusing on the search.

Return on Investment

  • Not yet clear, though it is expected to have a positive return on investment and be a significant upgrade from the system previously in place
  • External companies will have an easier more efficient time interacting with the agency for which I work, which should see an increase in use and registrations through Appian

  • The ability to only pay for the features we needed for a system that is easy to use by all is considered a perfect ROI for selected WizeHive Zengine.
