Nintex Workflow for Sharepoint

Overall Satisfaction with Nintex Workflow

We use Nintex Workflow across the entire company but use is generally more focused in the Information Technology and Purchasing departments. We use it on our SharePoint site to handle workflows for:

  • Approving capital expenditure purchase orders
  • Approving varying levels of access for new employees and ensuring that all steps in the onboarding process are followed
  • Ensuring approval of SOX-compliance documentation by all appropriate personnel
  • Updating SQL tables with information about documents within the workflows
Nintex addresses our need for an easy-to-understand tool for building workflows and making sure that all processes are followed completely.
  • The biggest bang for the buck with Nintex is the ability to create workflows with drag-and-drop functionality. I can build simple workflows in a matter of a few minutes.
  • It looks basically like a flowchart, which is the way a workflow should look. Having the visual layout for the more complicated workflows is invaluable.
  • Nintex Workflow support is fast, knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Internet Explorer is the only browser supported. Nintex is the only thing for which I use IE and it's a little frustrating that I have to remember to open another browser to be able to utilize the full functionality.
  • More consistent following of employee onboarding processes and acquiring the appropriate levels of approval for various kinds of access
  • Faster completion and easier maintenance for workflows has allowed me to spend less time on that and more time on my other tasks
I have only had experience with a formal workflow system at this company, so I cannot compare and contrast our situation with others. I think the main question that should be asked, as with a great number of technology products, is: "Does it work and is it easy to use"? Being in the IT department, it is my job to build the workflows, support the workflows, help the users, etc. With the Nintex Workflow product specifically, I would feel comfortable turning workflow creation over to someone who is far less technically experienced because it is so easy to use. Some of the intricacies for which we use it would not be easily grasped by non-technical professionals, but the product is so easy to use that it doesn't require a technical background.

Using Nintex Workflow

Nintex is complete and easy to use, and the cost is fair for such a great tool.

Using Nintex Workflow

It is easy to learn and use Nintex Workflow. With the drag-and-drop function and the flowchart-like layout, workflows can be created quickly.
