I use Foxtrot for maintenance purposes. It is very well suited for this type of activity. To have someone change a responsibility code on 1000 accounts is monotonous and time-consuming. Foxtrot just runs in the background while you continue your daily tasks.Less suited is if maintenance on several thousand accounts is required in one day. There needs to be planning involved to make sure that scripts are run through and validations are done by a specific date.

Microsoft Power Automate

Microsoft Power Automate is best suited for approvals and working with SharePoint Lists. It is easy to create an approval that either requires the submitter's manager (Active Directory) to approve or enter in a specific person or person's to approve. Additional approvers and other subtasks can be added as well. For example, if the request was approved, a SharePoint List can be created and or updated by adding the new request as a new row and enter in only the data that you set as required on the list. It will also send out customized emails for "Approved" or "Rejected" requests. Also, add comments to Microsoft Teams Channels, export to Microsoft Excel or Adobe PDF, these are some of the features available in flow.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Integrates across the entire O365 suite which makes the tool easy to access and little effort to deploy. Simple licensing roll-out is all that is needed.

Cons

Nintex RPA

  • Could be a bit more user-friendly.
  • Program not freezing up because of web site performance.
  • Easier error checking.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • WinAutomations web extraction of data within the source code of a web site is lacking and took a lot of creativity on my part to be able to get my task accomplished.
  • Would prefer if I had the option of web browsers in data extraction jobs.
  • Sometimes the program is slow to start.

Foxtrot is the best data automation software on the market. Especially for the price and cost savings. I have been able to do so much data integrity clean up over the years to keep our system clean.

Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow) is very user friendly. It is mostly just click to add functions or connections and then fill in pertinent information to ensure that the connector functions the way that you want. I was able to create my first flow within minutes just by looking through the connectors and piecing it together.

So Microsoft Flow support for its general troubleshooting or correcting issues is excellent. But to my knowledge, Microsoft Flow itself does not have service providers, even though they offer templates on their online app. I have found myself many times trying to complete individual actions that have no known template or even forum example. Every business is unique, and Microsoft does an excellent job of providing versatile yet straightforward systems. Microsoft Flow is definitely on the more advanced side of things. Having support or being able to purchase superior service (on building personalized flows) would be great.

Alternatives Considered

Nintex RPA

Foxtrot does not have nearly as much in terms of functionality and workflow tools. It is primarily meant for automating and creating scripts that help with mainframe-based maintenance and migration tasks. In addition, it is very efficient in simulating the actions of an individual for daily and manual tasks. We selected Foxtrot because it was the tool that was recommended by the main vendor we needed to interface with, and industry-wide it was the main tool being used by other financial institutions with similar platforms to perform the tasks that we bought the platform to perform.

Microsoft Power Automate

In my opinion [Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow)] is heads and shoulders above Nintex. It was much easier to learn to use and had a much cleaner UI. Nintex and Power Automate both had connections to a lot of platforms but since we used a majority of Microsoft products Power Automate seemed to plug in to our organization just a bit smoother. In the time that we had both products Power Automate had great improvements to an already good product whereas Nintex had much fewer (although also improved).

Return on Investment

Nintex RPA

  • Save time in mass updates.
  • Accurate logging of inserting records.
Roland Luke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Time Saving, the ROI for this now Employees will be notified through Flow when they have a action to perform. They don't have to spend time checking.
  • Efficiency, Flow helps eliminate human error and runs when you tell it to, how you want it to.
  • The elimination of electronic documents. Before when a new customer was set up an email with an attachment that had to be filled out was passed around to the pertinent employees. Now it's automated and tracked. Less error and mistakes are being made by using Flow.
