Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the most valuable features is you can create without coding, it is a low code platform.""I find process management and user interface designing the most valuable features.""The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried.""Flexible and drag-and-drop type of UI is very valuable. The integrations are also very good. You can build workflows very quickly, which is my favorite activity. By using the GUI, you can build the entire mechanism, notifications, and all this kind of stuff."

"This solution is good at utilizing standards rules for connectivity.""Collaboration is most valuable. You can collaborate online with many people. People can comment, and you can comment back. It is just like a social network, and that, for me, is very good."

Cons
"The interface is advanced and quite good, but it could improve.""I have run into a lot of problems because there is not enough documentation.""I should be able to park the tasks that are within a process in a kind of container, and dynamically, a super admin should be able to connect these processes. This kind of feature might be helpful.""There could be an improvement in IoT connectivity."

"There should be an option to import from and export to Microsoft Visio. Being able to move files back and forth between Blueworks Live and Visio would be good.""Spaces are not well organized; space controls are lacking."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are using the Community Version, which can be used free of charge."
  • "Licensing cost for the Enterprise edition comes out to be around 40,000 a year. There is also a Community edition, which is free. Some customers can go for the Community edition, but some of them require the Enterprise edition. Big companies go for the Enterprise edition, which comes with a lot of additional features such as a mobile app."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable."
  • "The price is fair for what we are using the solution for."
