Likelihood to Recommend

Bonita BPM

Bonitasoft is very well suited for workflow based applications where there are dependencies on both human and computer-related tasks.

Workflow. I would absolutely, 100% recommend it for a school, in Admissions, and I would recommend it to any small company who has an issue with workflow. The best thing about the program is that it knows what it is, and knows what it wants to be. You aren't going to sit down to work with KiSSFLOW and end up being sold an HR program. To make it work just right, find the person who truly understands how your business works. Have them build a workflow which takes care of the tedious tasks, and then let them train others on the process. You will find that your productivity increases, and that your paper costs decrease.

KiSSFLOW

  • We had been looking for a way to streamline an approval process for expenditures and found this company. Over the last few years, this tool has made our workflow seamless.
  • The support team from KiSSFLOW is also first rate. They respond very quickly to questions or concerns if or when they arise. We have been online with this service for several years with little problems.
  • The tool is extremely powerful and easy to customize. In the past, they helped us set up our first few forms too.

Cons

Bonita BPM

  • HR processes that include candidate requests (a new employee)
  • Initiation of a new project
  • Quotation mapping
  • The documentation does not have enough samples or examples. This is the weak point of Bonita BPM.

KiSSFLOW

  • The biggest feature that we would like to see is being able to dynamically assign users to a task.

Performance

Bonita BPM

Bonita BPM 8.0
Based on 2 answers
Engine itself is efficient enough for most cases I dealt with. It can also be extended by clustering. I have done performance tests with JMeter and only managed to induce the crash of... JMeter. If there are efficiency issues they usually concern bad design/implementation of created apps or bottlenecks in integrated systems. Although I have met two cases with efficiency loss.
1. Java 7 related PermGen saturation caused by big number of installed apps (there is no jar dependency reusal between apps option).
2. Big number of waiting event handlers in processes stresses the database.

Alternatives Considered

Bonita BPM

Bonita BPM is simpler to use, development is faster and you don't have to write complicated codes to develop processes.

KiSSFLOW

KiSSFLOW is much easier to set up, less coding and easier to explain to those that are being trained. The company already had SharePoint, but it is a very difficult system to set up. A class had to be taken, along with getting books in order to understand the process of the workflow. With KiSSFLOW, it is simple to understand, the helpdesk is quick with their response, help topics are laid out simply and you can even talk with someone on that side to ask your questions. Overall, KiSSFLOW is a much easier workflow and system to use.

Scalability

Based on 10 answers
Because the business is still unhappy about Bonita, it's a great tool but today workflow applications are not well understood by the public.They are not ready for this... Workflow application, for Bonita, need to improve his reporting features. It's really limited today and we have to plug some BI software to retrieve and build the data

Return on Investment

Bonita BPM

  • Once it is used to implement a process in a specific way, Bonita is much more efficient than common implementations done with languages such as Java or C# (.NET).
  • Decrease in development time if the process is appropriated planned.
  • Created a process that would be more difficult if it was implemented in other ways.

  • It's been overall very positive. We now have a clear picture of what proposals are coming in and which teams are involved and so on.
