Overall Satisfaction with ProcessMaker

An amazing BPMN system which helps us to implement our workflow projects. We needed to normalize our business processes. By using Processmaker, we draw our process and related electronic forms easily. And, ProcessMaker provides an easy way to write code to customize the workflow. Great!
  • We can write PHP and Javascript code to handle the way the ProcessMaker does. It makes the ProcessMaker more flexible to meet our requests on our workflow.
  • The Processmaker provides a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get flowchart design tool, we can draw our process very easy like Visio. And, We can use the flowchart to implement our workflow.
  • Also, the Dynaform, the electronic form function of Processmaker, is WYSIWYG form design tool, help us design forms participated in the process.
  • The Compatibility with IE Browser. The IE Browser is not compatible with jQuery, and ProcessMaker is based on jQuery, The user who uses IE Browser is somewhat difficult using ProcessMaker normally.
  • I'm using Communication edition to introduce BPMN in my organization. I can build the first process in a short time, make my boss more confident with my job.
  • But, with ProcessMaker, we need more time to design code to handle the process, and without PHP/Javascript Programmer, it seems hard to work with more and more processes online.
  • However, IE Browser is not well supported, somewhat let the user confuse.
Simple, and easy to use..
Design Flowchart, and Electronic paper easily, I designed the following flow chart about 3 hours, https://i.imgur.com/Tpr8ovO.png and the following form in 1 hour, https://i.imgur.com/GAx5Nvh.png And, this is the first time I am using Processmaker.I can control the workflow by PHP and Javascript code, by trigger and code inside to handle the submit button, etc. It's a simple and powerful BPMN tools better than the others I've used before.
