Nintex Workflow for Sharepoint

Overall Satisfaction with Nintex Process Platform

It is used across the whole organization. It simplifies converting the typical paper-based forms to digital forms easily and route it for different roles involved in the process. Power users are empowered to automate their needs without looking out for some specialists to implement the form or workflow for them.
  • Browser based WYSIWYG form designer.
  • Lot of actions to suit all needs requirement to model any process.
  • Ability to design a complex step as a user-defined action so that it can be used by normal users across the organization.
  • Seamless workflow/form design and publish experience.
  • For complex form designs, using custom javascript or CSS is not so straight forward. The advanced responsive form is not so flexible for complex requirement needs.
  • Large workflows are not so stable and have performance impact. To get around this, rather than one big workflow, multiple smaller workflows to be created which is not so user friendly while looking at the workflow history.
  • Lack of support to implement multilingual forms in SharePoint platform.
  • Nintex platform for SharePoint provides greater ROI from SharePoint.
  • Power-user empowerment reduces the dependency on IT to implement some automation.
  • Optimized, automated process streamlines the overall process adherence to organizational standards.
We use the Nintex platform for forms and workflows in SharePoint 2013 and 2019 on-premise environment. The flexibility of deploying the Nintex platform over the SharePoint farm is very good and straightforward. It is very important for us that our SharePoint farm administrator can also easily take care of Nintex platform deployment, configuration, and maintenance activities.
Yes, the main objective for us is to empower the non-IT power users to leverage the platform features to automate their day to day process. Non-IT users are currently using the Nintex forms and workflows to design their process right on the browser without installing any dedicated tools. It greatly reduced their effort in performing manual approval processes.
Nintex process platform is so easy for non-IT users to use for themselves and automate their day to day workflows, which is a huge success for the overall organization. Browser-based process modeling and WYSIWYG form builder is a great option for non-IT users without steep learning curve. Nintex online university has got basic training videos that anyone can easily understand and get started with automation themselves.
The platform is well suited in an organization where the power users are encouraged to be empowered to automate their needs themselves without a steep learning curve. Organizations that have already invested in SharePoint platform can leverage the Nintex process platform to make most out of their SharePoint infrastructure. The platform would be less appropriate where there is not a lot of process/forms required.
