Nintex Named "Cool Vendor" by Gartner

Nintex today announced it has been included in Gartner Inc.’s list of “Cool Vendors in Program and Portfolio Management, 2013,” published April 29, 2013 by analysts Robert A. Handler, Matt Light, Jim Duggan, Daniel B. Stang, Donna Fitzgerald, and Elise Olding. The exclusive list highlights innovative vendors and their products and services selected by Gartner analysts.

In the report, Gartner states that “organizations struggle to gain more productivity with fixed resource pools.” Nintex Workflow allows business users and IT developers the ability to design and implement end-to-end workflows with a graphical drag-and-drop interface, without the need for lengthy development cycles.

Nintex customers have reported increased efficiency and cost savings, such as a 20 percent reduction of time spent in meetings, up to 50 percent faster project completion times and hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings in IT support. For example, one Nintex customer saved $200,000 by designing a workflow to solve a problem in two-week’s time and training the staff to maintain the workflow without ongoing IT support.

“Traditional business process management tools that cater only to developers can become an IT burden. We believe the Gartner report captures the unique essence of our high-productivity workflow tool, valuable to developers, IT professionals, project and portfolio managers, and the ‘citizen developers’ among business users” said Alberto Sutton vice president of marketing at Nintex. “Additionally, our user community is already realizing the rewards of applying mobile and social capabilities to process automation. We will continue to support a mix of structured and unstructured processes while also offering hybrid deployments, connectivity to systems and the momentum of our cloud based technologies.”

As an example, Nintex Workflow allows users to connect with resources outside the boundaries of SharePoint and Project Server. This connectivity allows project managers to access information from financial, human resources, billing and other previously unconnected systems to create more complete workflows. Project and portfolio managers can build processes that connect to an ever-growing catalog of online services and interact directly with Office 365, Yammer, Twitter, Bing and a world of business, government and public information services hosted in the cloud.

“Nintex will continue to gain steady adoption in organizations because of its ease-of-use and continued innovation, making it worthwhile to automate even variable processes and projects,” said Dux Raymond Sy, PMP, managing partner at Innovative-e. “Nintex is committed to fast roll outs, continuous refinements and understanding the needs of project managers; all reasons why we believe its workflow tools deliver value to the marketplace. We are confident recommending Nintex Workflow to our clients as a great addition to their technology toolkit.”
