Straightforward interface and user-friendly
There are a lot of apps in K2, but what I really found that needs improvement is the management section of K2, especially the management server and the admin page where you can manage processes, add users, set security fees, and add licenses. The reason for this is because the part that is the section of administration, particularly the management called rows, has multiple rules, as many as you want. For instance, you may have around 200 rules, and when you view them, only the first ten are displayed, and you have to click next to see the next ten and so on until you get to the hundredth rule. On that page, as of today, we only have what we call to fetch, where you can search for a particular rule you're looking for, or else you have to keep clicking until you get to the final page you want. So that's a bit challenging.

Jobs can be scheduled, integrated, and automated easily
Redwood provides an advanced form of scheduler that supports multiple applications and workflows by automating the process. This makes room for innovation that helps users to innovate rather than perform a repeated process.  This being a SaaS automation tool, we benefit from integrating with other…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"Out of box connectivity with UiPath."
"I find it useful to utilize LDAP query action to find out the status of a particular user."
"Allows us to provide desktop/laptop and mobile solutions to our users."
"Easily maintained and customization is quite simple."
"This solution is very easy to use and customize, using almost zero coding. It's built on SharePoint which many companies in our country have experience with. This made it easy to adapt the application in our environment."
"It's easy to configure your set of rules to make the form controls work perfectly, removing manual work and making processes seamless."
"I really like the visual representation. It actually looks like a flow chart, which is nicer than a SharePoint Designer workflow, which doesn't have that ability."
"It leverages the out-of-the-box SharePoint back-end. This means that you don’t need to install or deploy additional infrastructure to support Nintex Workflow, unlike some of its competitors."
"Installing and configuring Redwood agents are easy, and scheduling jobs on Redwood helps in triggering the batches as per business requirements."
"The automated alert response is very useful for long-running and failed jobs during off-business hours."
"In Redwood Automation, we can easily fetch the daily reports from the system as per the client's requirement and track the status of every job which is running, aborted, or canceled."
"Redwood RunMyJobs has been very useful for job scheduling and checking and monitoring jobs."
"This program works with every browser."
"Our team was able to integrate it with the ITSM tool as well as security monitoring tools to make the incident creation process automatically feasible."
"REL expressions are quite helpful for setting up the preconditions."
"This product is simple and easy to use."
 

Cons

"The security features for this solution need to be improved."
"Nintex seems to be very server intensive. It is one of the reasons that we are moving to a different product on the SharePoint 2016 platform."
"We would like to have access to an on-premises solution. In our country, we have a relationship with Central Bank of Egypt, which do noes not allow cloud solutions to be used. They should offer an on-prem solution with a flexible price license."
"Unfortunately, Nintex Workflow is not that stable. We are looking at shifting to another tool."
"At times, issues arise in certain scenarios. In such cases, the versioning can become quite difficult. There may be no other way but to restart the entire process or rectify it at that point."
"We are currently facing a lot of issues with Nintex, and we are trying to move away from this solution."
"The solution needs more RPA and AI features."
"Currently, a notable challenge lies in the alignment of user experiences across the eight or nine applications within the suite. Transitioning between applications can be somewhat cumbersome due to varying user interfaces. However, the provider is actively addressing this concern by consistently rolling out updates every four to five months, aimed at harmonizing and streamlining the interfaces. This ongoing effort is expected to enhance the user experience over time. In terms of functionality and features, the platform stands out, offering flexibility with the option for both on-premises and cloud deployment. This flexibility extends to the RPA tool, providing clients with choices tailored to their preferences. An advantage lies in the shared security and data infrastructure across the toolset, facilitating smooth data transfer between applications. This contrasts with experiences with Oracle, where data transfer may involve complexities such as the need for intermediary file formats like TXL or SCZ."
"Enhancing the user interface would make it more appealing to new users with limited technical knowledge."
"Currently, our developers aren't able to access their own objects in the user acceptance testing server and production system server as they are assigned the developer access role, which is kind of a solid role, and no changes or additions can be made to it."
"The reports are downloaded in .CAR file format, which makes it difficult to convert to an Excel file."
"There is a lack of resources and product documentation which, if included, would help to gain more knowledge about the application."
"Adding machine learning and AI capabilities would enable Redwood to automate more complex business processes and tasks."
"We need the ability to pull data into an Excel format."
"Due to the abundance of competing automation technologies available on the market, connectivity with any cloud platform can be improved."
"It has limited reporting features; some basic reporting features are missing."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"We pay on a yearly basis. It's my understanding that we pay approximately $11,000/year."
"The annual support costs are expensive."
"The product’s price is competitive compared to other vendors."
"Comparatively, it's expensive."
"Nintex is around INR 200 per license in India, which is much cheaper. Smaller organizations are always looking for cost-effective solutions, and Nintex provides local solutions with very low pricing."
"For the initial hundred users, the cost is $21,000 per year, which I find too high."
"The enterprise version has some additional features that I would like to use, but the price is not fair."
"This solution is affordable and is cheaper than most alternatives on the market. We have a standard cloud license that costs about 20k per year."
"It initially surprised me because we went from an application that was priced by connection to agents/the number of agents to an application that was priced based on the number of job executions. At that time, many of the products we looked at were also priced on job execution. That seems to be more common in the business or in the vendors that provide solutions out there, but that was probably our biggest difference."
