Stable with okay pricing but needs better integration capabilities
Pros and Cons
  • "The stability of the product is very good."
  • "Integrating with or interfacing with other tools like data management tools would be very helpful."

What is most valuable?

The stability of the product is very good. The costs are reasonable. 

What needs improvement?

There are a number of drawbacks. Mainly, the collaboration is lacking to some extent - at least when it comes to how we are using it. There is also the fact that the provider pushed us to the cloud version. Those are the main topics that are driving us towards a replacement that has a number of advantages against ProVision. That mainly is, collaboration and not being forced to the cloud on the provider's agenda. Integrating with or interfacing with other tools like data management tools would be very helpful.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for the last five to seven years or so.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is not an issue. We haven't had any major mishaps with ProVision. The stability and the quality of the software as such for the functional status given, we don't have an issue with that. It's more the collaboration functionalities and a number of other issues. For example, how to embed it more in our policies that are beyond process management.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The company previously used Visio, which is basically the paper and pencil version of premises management.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is not an issue for us.

What other advice do I have?

We are customers and end-users. We don't have a business relationship with the company. The current product which we're working with is ProVision, however, we would like to get rid of it. We're looking into the marketplace for a replacement. It does not do just process management, it has to fit in with the rest of our environment. It's not just the quality of the software itself, as process management. It's how it also fits in the rest of the environment. That plays a role with us. That said, there's no specific platform in this case. In the mid-term, we need to get rid of it, however, it's not that we have to get rid of it tomorrow. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten. It's not a bad product. It just doesn't work specifically how we need it to for our business.

The license covers all models and features but only supports certain APIs
Pros and Cons
  • "All the features come as part of a standard license."
  • "Lacks the ability to have your own in-house developments."

What is our primary use case?

OpenText is for e-correspondence, document management, focus automation and it can also be used for accounts payable processing. We are partners with OpenText and users of this solution. I'm a solution director. 

What is most valuable?

I like that all the features come as part of a standard license and that one license covers everything. 

What needs improvement?

My main complaint is that the solution is not open source in the sense that you can't have your own in-house developments. The only thing that they can support is certain APIs that can help you integrate and create your own API solutions.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for 15 years, initially on-prem but we're now moving to AWS. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable and stable. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward, deployment took around three months and we used a consultant. We used a technical team of three or four people and we have around 300 users. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Unfortunately, the licensing is only for an end-user so you can't have a shared license like a concurrent license.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this solution. 

I rate this solution seven out of 10.
