Catalytic

Catalytic is best suited for process automation. It is great with unstructured data and the machine learning capability is so accessible. The AI aspect is super intuitive and helps make good business decisions. The ability to drop pushbots into process and then do a seamless handshake to a human and back again is not something I have seen anywhere else.

Nintex Process Platform

It allows for [the] quick creation of forms to collect data/information.If you need to collect lots of data and do analysis it can be difficult as errors will happen and there is not debugger. However, the forms themselves can be very complicated and put together quickly as long as you step through them carefully.

Cons

Catalytic

  • Funky UI - doesn't take much to get used to
  • Handlebar
  • Hard to grasp the full extent of the power of the application
Mark DACEY | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nintex Process Platform

  • Confusion can occur between site collection and local site workflows, UDAs, and settings. Would be nice to have a clearer indication of where you need to go to make certain types of changes.
  • Licensing configuration for the product and management of its many services can be hard for some owners. Issues sometimes arise simply because one outlier Nintex service decided to stop working and it isn't completely obvious during troubleshooting.
  • Database logging for every workflow action (turned on by default) can quickly fill up limited space an organization may have. Ensure you have the proper infrastructure to handle the load.
  • Limits and confusions in how licensing works can lead to a lot of excess to get what you need. Would be nicer to have the older licensing options returned.

We are currently investigating which collaboration platform best suits our needs. Chances are that we move to SharePoint Online and then we're going to also consider the microsoft power platform (power automate and power apps) to develop forms and workflows.Aspecially the pricing model for the cloud is currently a blocking factor to go for the Nintex solution in the Cloud.

Using Catalytic is dead simple, click and drag. Start simple and iterate. Once you start using the tool, you soon want to add more in and then the more you add in the higher the ROI. People will start to line up to want to use it, and realise the benefits

Based on the on-prem experience with this tool, I believe that they have a lot of potential to help the online version catch up to where the on-prem left off. Nintex developed their online version and it is not as fully formed or capable compared to the on-prem version, and the licensing model scales back what we would have liked to be an expansion or at least continuous improvement of existing flows. It is also not near as user friendly specifically to non-developers and has an uncanny similarity to Microsoft Flow in the online instance. Consistent with my reviews of the tool - I believe they have some good approaches to design thinking that, if translated well from on-prem to online, could make this a clear winner again.

The Nintex Process Platform has never crashed or had any availability issues during my usage. However there was an issue that was of my own making that caused a slowdown of the system. I had set up a process to run once a day and check for employees on a list that had certain parameters selected, and for some reason that I had to troubleshoot, the process instead ran constantly, which filled the cache quickly. I ended up having to dismantle that process so the system didn't crash.

Unlike any other process automation product out there. Not only is it a low-code, easy to use tool for building processes in environments like SharePoint or Salesforce, they have really started to expand their tool-set by offering tools to manage other things like process mapping, RPA, mobile,etc.

We have been so lucky with Catalytic, the team have been super responsive and more than willing to go that extra mile to make sure we have everything that we need. Even with the time zone challenges, they are the kind of team that will always make sure they are available and will follow up until we have the answer and more.

The Tier 1 support is horrible. It wasn't always this way. Previously their support was great, but lately when submitting support tickets they get lost, I have to ask for status updates and engage with the VP of support to get results.

I used the Nintex training software, it was easy to watch and follow along. It didn't go too fast and was descriptive enough to understand what the steps needed were in order to produce efficient workflows and user friendly forms.

test runs for key persons to insure the system is set up prior to rolling out I think the platform is good, I think the roll out and the local implantations is where we are failing as a company in using Nintex

Alternatives Considered

Catalytic

We started on the process automation journey a few years back and people kept coming back to ask, was there an alternative that would allow us to connect all the disparate systems in my organisation. We looked at RPA, that wasn't the answer, some of the larger players could do what we were looking for, but it came at a price that precluded usage. Then we should Catalytic was right in that sweet spot, - we call it bang for buck, functionality that was accessible from a price point of view but delivered in terms of realising our goals

Nintex Process Platform

Microsoft's SharePoint 2013 workflow has a number of shortcomings that Nintex Workflow just deals with effortlessly. The Nintex tools seem to be built by people who understand how [to] process stuff is done properly, whereas the MS tools are comprehensive but seem to be written by & for programmers. For 365, PowerApps seem to be taking over the world, and not having PowerApps on your CV is a problem.

This product works well as you scale business processes but there is a point where things become too complex. Administratively it scales fine, number of users is no problem, and since Nintex relies on the build in SharePoint workflow manager, it falls under the same scalability perimeters. Business Process complexity is the limiter for scalability within Nintex.

Return on Investment

Catalytic

  • Made us look more closely at why we do what we do
  • Shortened the cycle time on a lot of previously manual processes
  • Better experience for our customer base
Mark DACEY | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nintex Process Platform

  • With our diverse organization, being able to establish consistency is key and we can do this by creating a standardized form, process, and workflow with automation. So the process is easier and all of our people are doing it the same way. That is a game changer.
  • The licensing is a little hard to follow and can make the product unaffordable.
  • The approach of Nintex hosting the solution makes Nintex design their product for maximum usage. They have to make sure they can have their product embedded in a number of different systems; so, they use industry standard protocols and development.
