According to Forrester, “Nintex leads the charge to make businesspeople into developers and has customers that have scaled to tens of thousands of applications deployed, the vast majority of which were developed by businesspeople without formal coding skills.”
Today we’re looking at what those businesspeople-turned-developers use most when building workflows in Nintex Workflow Cloud.
Before we look at the most popular connectors, first let’s talk about what they are: Connectors integrate your business apps within your automated workflows. They are simple and easy to use; you simply drag a built-in connector into the workflow design canvas, and you can automate the interaction between the workflow and that app. Nintex Connectors cover the popular apps you use every day, and the Nintex Xtensions Framework lets you build and customize any connector we may not already have.
Now let’s talk about the most popular Connectors.
1. Salesforce Connector:
Salesforce is a customer relationship management solution that brings companies and customers together. It’s an integrated CRM platform that gives all your departments (marketing, sales, commerce, and service) a single, shared view of every customer. With the Nintex Salesforce Connector, you’re able to integrate the functionality of Salesforce with the powerful automation and optimization capabilities of Nintex Workflow Cloud. Customers use the Salesforce Connector to perform standard “CRUD,” which stands for Create a record, Return (or answer) a query, Update a record, and Delete.
2. Box Connector:
Box is an online file-sharing, storage, and collaboration tool that is used by 70% of the Fortune 500. With Nintex Workflow Cloud, you can automate processes that often start at a form or document and ultimately end with that document and data securely stored. With the Nintex Box Connector, you can easily save, query, and edit data stored within Box.
3. Microsoft Connectors:
Nintex’s roots may lie in Microsoft SharePoint, but we’ve grown to be platform-independent and pride ourselves on being able to tie into any system of record you may use. We still have deep integrations with the entire Microsoft stack, including Dynamics CRM, Teams, and SharePoint Online. Whether it’s creating an item in SharePoint, adding members to a Team, or interacting with data in Dynamics, Nintex has the Connector for you.
We have looked at the most common Connectors, and there are numerous others to help you in your day-to-day work, including Adobe Sign, Twilio, Google Cloud Translation, Emotion API, and many more.
