Nintex Workflow for Office365

Overall Satisfaction with Nintex Process Platform

We are working on automating multiple manual paper-based processes and forms by taking them on SharePoint Online and using Nintex Process Platform's responsive forms and workflows. It significantly reduces the ongoing costs of manually managing these processes end to end.
  • Responsive forms are great. Works for multiple devices from anywhere.
  • Creating complex state machine workflows are very easy with Nintex Process Platform.
  • Integration with 3rd party apps like DocuSign is very simple and straightforward.
  • License cost is sometimes expensive if you need to create multiple workflows and forms.
  • Limitation on the number of actions in workflow and size of workflow sometimes poses challenges, as then you need to create multiple instances and use multiple licenses.
  • Saved a lot of manual effort of a lot of business users by automating using Nintex Process Platform.
  • Within using the platform for 2-3 years we saw ROI based on automation of so many manual processes.
We have been using the Nintex Process Platform mostly with SharePoint on-prem & SharePoint Online/Office 365. Deployment is a very important factor, as we work with multiple customers and propose Nintex Process Platform-based solutions to them. Easy procurement and deployment are equally important as using the product itself.
Apps and workflows using Nintex platform are being built and developed by IT staff but in most of the cases, these apps are built for use by non-IT staff. These may be from multiple departments including Finance, IT, Communication, etc. Automating these apps helps non-IT staff focus their time on their core work rather than doing things manually.
We have built reusable workflows like CDA for some of the common functionalities that can be used for multiple processes. This helps while we are building something new. Overall, the product's user interface is very simple and user-intuitive—gives a drag and drop interface that power users can also sometimes build simple forms.
Using Nintex Process Platform, we are able to deliver applications pretty quickly in a matter of few weeks depending on the complexity. Overall, this has significantly changed the way we used to build apps using traditional code.
Nintex Process Platform is great for more complex and heavy processes as compared to some other similar tools. Additionally, it offers great support in case of any issues.
It works great where there are highly complex processes that are lengthy and involve multiple approvals. Additionally, it helps you build those complex forms for multiple devices and with multiple business logic rules.
