What our clients have to say about the Nintex Promapp vs Visio debate.

Many of our clients are organizations that have invested time and effort in Visio over the years, and have eventually realised the limitations of this approach for creating and managing their business processes:

Processes are becoming more complex. Nintex Promapp tackles the pain point of complexity. Most companies are challenged with business process mapping – standardising business processes and creating a single source of truth. This is what Nintex Promapp does really well.

Liz Hegarty, Tasman District Council.

We timed mapping a set of processes in Visio, and then in Nintex Promapp. And it took one seventh of the time to do in Nintex Promapp.

Peter Wimsett, Manager of Strategy and District Development, Tararua District Council.

Traditionally HAMBS had relied on a mix of Visio charts, Word documents and Excel files to capture process documentation. This has proved limiting in its ability to facilitate process governance, ownership, compliance and maintenance. The lack of a central storage location also meant that process documentation was often hard to find and underutilized.

Carolina Wallgren, PMO Lead, HAMBS.

ADA was increasingly working with multiple applications to map everyday business processes which were unwieldy to manage, store and update. These applications included a variety of Visio, Word, Excel and PDF files which not only required specific skill sets to operate but lacked the capacity to drive cross business collaboration.

Aaron Cousins, IT Manager, Australian Defence Apparel.

… processes aren’t as complicated as Visio makes them appear.

Manually fiddling with Visio maps was very time consuming. In Nintex Promapp the documentation happens automatically, and all the information appears on one screen. That’s saved time – and money.

Anita Savelio, Quality Assurance Team Leader, MBIE Companies Office.

We had been using Visio to record standard operating procedures, which staff found clunky and time-consuming. Half the time people didn’t even know if a process existed because they didn’t know where to look for it.
