National Metrology Institute of South Africa speeds workflow development with Nintex

Easy-to-use workflows improve processes across all departments

Jayesh Jina, head of IT at the National Metrology Institute of South Africa (NMISA), faced 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. 

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.
