The best workflow tool for SharePoint - PERIOD.

This is an amazing package. It allows completely code-free control over SharePoint workflow. If you have any experience using the Visual Studio interface to program SharePoint, you will appreciate just how complex SharePoint workflow coding can be, and Nintex Workflow for SharePoint eliminates this complexity. The product itself can appear quite complex at first, because it has a huge array of elements available to define custom workflows. But once you've been introduced to the basics, it's really quite straightforward. The product is elegantly designed and deeply integrated with SharePoint. My only reservation is with the pricing - licensing can be expensive. But the value is substantial.

Product Reviews

Pros
Comprehensive set of workflow elements and actions
Simple, graphical interface for workflow definition
SharePoint-specific design
Cons
The range of elements and actions is large and can be a bit intimidating at first
Licensing can be expensive

This tool has become indispensable to us

Well worth it

Product Reviews

Pros
Fairly comprehensive set of actions are availabe. Integration with STMP, Active Directory, SQL in addition to all the SharePoint stuff. WYSIWYG works very well. Easy to learn how to use. Site workflows can be scheduled.
Cons
User defined actions and import/export provide some reusability but there could be more done in this area to reduce redundancy across multiple workflows.

cost is a bit high

Workflow in the hands of the Power User

Excellent Product

Product Reviews

Pros
Traditionally SharePoint has lot of capabilities to stramline and automate most the Business Processes. This power is brought into the hands of the Power User/Business user by using Nintex.

This is one of the important tools that most of the companies should look to invest if they want to take advantage of the Workflows with no code approach.

Make building workflows easier

I have been using Nintex for over two years on my current project and it has greatly increased the speed to deliver simple and complex workflows to implement business process. We use the webservice to publish workflows based on the Nintex nwf files to build repeatable solutions. The support team is quick to respond if you need help and their online site has good documentation and examples.

Product Reviews

Pros
Easy to use designer
Lots of activities covering most scenarios
SDK eases workflow provisioning and allows extensibility
Multiple scopes for customizing templates at farm, site, web levels
Graphical displays of workflow progress
Cons
Support team is quick to respond, but if meetings required, the team is in Australia which can be difficult to schedule for US teams.
