National Metrology Institute of South Africa Speeds Workflow Development with Nintex

Jayesh Jina, Head of IT at the National Metrology Institute of South Africa (NMISA), was facing a workflow challenge. With an enormous number of processes and a significant shortage of available resources, he needed an efficient way to automate processes and empower employees to create their own workflows easily and independently. With a bit of research and an informed partner, he found a solution with Nintex.

Founded in 2006, Pretoria, South Africa-based NMISA is charged with maintaining national measurement standards and units for industry in South Africa. It also monitors standards to ensure measurement equivalence with global standards.

In addition, the organization serves as a reference when measurement disputes arise, and it develops chemical analysis methods used in the certification of South African reference materials. NMISA's clients include South African Airways, BMW, SKA (Telescopic Array), and Eskom.

Limited Resources Burdened By Sharepoint Workflows

In dealing with its workflow issues, NMISA struggled with a lack of IT resources, automated systems, and risk and compliance solutions. Jayesh and his team found that out-of-the-box SharePoint workflows were very tedious to build and manage.

NMISA wanted an integrated solution that would speed development of workflows, and provide a more professional email interface for tasks and approvals. The company initially considered an offering from a Nintex competitor, but ultimately chose a solution from Nintex.

Nintex Delivers Easy Workflow

Working with solution provider Dac Systems, NMISA implemented an automation solution based upon Nintex Workflow. Nintex Workflow is a powerful, easy-to-use workflow designer that improves business processes, and delivers a rapid return on investment.

Nintex Workflow empowers users with easy-yet-powerful tools, and lets users monitor, manage, and reuse workflows everywhere. With Nintex Workflow, users can model and improve processes, regardless of their complexity. It integrates seamlessly with other systems, tools, and services, and boosts and extends SharePoint functionality.

Better Productivity And Employee Empowerment

With Nintex Workflow, NMISA developers are experiencing greater productivity, building and deploying workflows faster. "The Nintex drag-and-drop functionality has enabled our team to create workflows and get them deployed faster than we could have imagined,"says Jayesh. "It's really made a huge difference in our department's productivity."

Another significant saving has been found in the new ability to re-use and re-purpose code that has been created for workflows. "Being able to re-purpose snippets of code in multiple workflows has been a real efficiency gain for us," says Jayesh.

According to Jayesh, the company has also found that it's easy to train its business users to create and manage workflows themselves. "With Nintex, there is virtually no learning curve for our employees when they begin using the system," he says. "We have been thrilled with how easy it's been to gain adoption of the solution across nearly every department in the company."

“The Nintex drag-and-drop functionality has enabled our team to create workflows and get them deployed faster than we could have imagined. It’s really made a huge difference in our department’s productivity.”
