Nintex Introduces Instant Creation of Automated Workflows

Nintex, Automated Workflows

Nintex, the global standard for process management and automation, announced an industry first: Nintex Workflow Generator, which enables business users to instantly create sophisticated workflows using the cloud-based visual process mapping capability, Nintex Promapp.

Nintex Workflow Generator requires no coding and is a powerful new onramp to the automation capabilities of the Nintex Process Platform. This new feature is currently available to customers and partners with subscriptions to Nintex Promapp and Nintex Workflow Cloud.

“Automation delivers tremendous benefits in terms of time, cost, and accuracy of business processes,” said Nintex CEO Eric Johnson. “By empowering business users to easily drive automation, we’re helping enterprises further digitize their operations, a major competitive advantage.”

Nintex Workflow Generator will be discussed in depth at Nintex ProcessFest 2019, first-of-its-kind process management and automation training and educational conference being held Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 at the W Hotel in Bellevue, Wash., near Nintex’s U.S. headquarters.

In most enterprises, automation expertise is concentrated in the IT department, while departmental process knowledge is dispersed across line of business (LoB) functions such as sales, marketing, HR, and finance. IT often lacks a nuanced understanding of the processes that make the business run. Meanwhile, the LoB experts responsible for completing those processes — many of which are still manual and paper-based — often are not empowered to harness the full potential of automation.

Nintex Workflow Generator uses natural language processing (NLP) to bridge the gap between process knowledge and automation expertise. The process expert simply uses Nintex Promapp to document a process, then clicks “Request Automation” to create a draft workflow and alert the IT department.

The workflow generator also simplifies communication between business users and IT, so workflows can be fine-tuned and continuously improved. The NLP engine uses feedback loops to steadily improve the accuracy with which it aligns process descriptions to standard workflow actions.
