Fastest way to build apps

Nintex is the fastest way to build apps with intuitive user design and a powerful drag and drop experience with advanced capabilities. We are the only automation provider with a significant number of customers automating thousands of their processes every day.

Both Nintex and K2 enable you to automate your processes, but how quickly you can do this and the investment required will vary on the platform you choose.

Nintex
Easily manage

Highly intuitive, designed so every participant in the process can easily understand and contribute to the process.

Quickly automate

Leveraging a drag and drop experience, an IT or Ops Pro can easily automate processes.

Dynamically optimize

Get deep visibility into processes to identify bottlenecks and opportunities to streamline.

K2
Rigid wizard-driven configuration

Users must manually configure individual steps, which can severely slow down progress.

Lengthy learning curve

Requires costly training for users developing processes and platform complexity means it could be months before they are comfortable with the tools.

Requires developer-level experience

Users are recommended to have several years of enterprise developer experience to be productive with the platform tools.

"Nintex is easily integrated into SharePoint so our users were able to get up and running immediately. Nintex is very intuitive so no formal training was needed. The K2 team took a year to get trained and get all of the servers running before we were able to start delivering solutions in K2. So far, Nintex has given us a much larger return on our investment than K2 has."

"We trialed K2 but thought the interface and features did not stack up to Nintex. Nintex was easier to learn and easier to master than utilizing K2. Nintex is much easier to operate than InfoPath and SharePoint Designer."

"One of the reasons why we went with Nintex was the overall cost of the solution; K2 was way more than Nintex. Another reason was ease of use; Nintex was easier to use by the average user and developers creating the workflows."
