"The product has a very good mobile app."
"Recently, we added Appian Process Mining, Appian Portals, and now Appian RPA."
"It is really simple to create a new app, and I like the data-centric aspect of the BPM tool."
"The technical support is excellent."
"The application life cycle is very clear. I started learning it and giving some workshops to my team. Creating the users and the building is very structured. Documentation is nice and it's easy to learn."
"The most valuable feature is business automation."
"It's a stable product."
"I find the BPM the most valuable feature."
"It is low-code. We are able to go in and create apps quickly. It is very helpful for the size of our company. We're a mid-size company, and at this moment, we don't need anything externally. We don't have to go out and consult a consulting firm to build something from the ground up. So, the ease of that and being able to get development quickly up and running has been good for us."
"While Appian is generally flexible, it's rigid in some ways. It takes longer to do something that isn't available out of the box."
"I would like to see more complete university tools. For example, with UiPath, I have had a good experience related to a free course in order to provide some users some different levels of knowledge. This extra training helps users not only use the solution but to develop further within the tool."
"What could be improved is more on the front end perspective, like the user interface and the mobile application aspect."
"I would like to see more features for enterprises. They would also benefit from adding documentation and training on their site."
"We'd like improved functionality for testing new devices."
"The ability of the interface to load automatic data is not great."
"Appian could include other applications that we could reuse for other customers, CRM for example."
"There should be more flexibility for the developers to choose the look and feel of the UI. They should have a better ability to design their widgets and customize them with different colors, shapes, and sizes. That is a limitation that could be improved upon."
"Its UI needs improvement. They should improve it and make it a little bit more modern. We should also be able to have more real-time information that connects with other software platforms. It has an open API, but it doesn't always connect with some of the other platforms that we would like to utilize. These are probably two of the biggest things for us, and hopefully, they will keep ensuring that in the future, they continually build QuickBase to be a little bit more efficient in that regard."
