Nintex Workflow Automation product overview

Nintex is an end-to-end process management and workflow automation platform. It provides digital solutions that replace and streamline traditional paper-based methods. Nintex Workflow Automation allows business users up to enterprise level to fully automate workflow and content processes so that all employees and shareholders can connect, collaborate, and work more efficiently. The software hosts the system within the cloud and centralizes access for multiple platforms and removes added deployment costs.

Business users and IT professionals alike can define complex workflows spanning multiple SaaS-based systems using drag-and-drop tools rather than complex coding. The latest Workflow Cloud Designer features an intuitive design canvas, adding connectors for a growing selection of popular web services and applications.

Nintex Workflow Automation streamlines the processes that make up the core of a business. Users can ensure that every task advances to the next stage of the process and the enterprise runs more smoothly. Nintex’s visual design tools were built to simplify the visualization and automation of sophisticated processes across systems of record, content repositories, and communication channels.

Nintex Workflow Automation connects on-premises, mobile, and cloud workflows together. It enables enterprises to design, deploy, and manage reliable solutions and services to ensure customer needs are met and productivity is maximized.

Automated enterprise forms

With Nintex Forms, users can create dynamic online forms to capture and submit accurate and current data from anywhere. The system has user-friendly designer canvas, drag-and-drop controls, and advanced business logic to make it easier to customize forms for every business need. Nintex allows users to build forms in any environment — Nintex Workflow Cloud, SharePoint, and Office 365 — and access them on any device. Users can also add features such as barcode scanners, multiple choice options, geolocation tags, images, and attachments. Multiple tabs can be created to organize information and capture large amounts of data within one form. Nintex Forms’ conditional formatting and validation allow end-users to see only the fields they need to fill out, ensuring the right information is collected the first time around.

Workflow automation

Nintex Workflow Automation ensures that businesses can go from concept to deployment in days, not months or years. Businesses can get their automated process up and running with the platform’s drag-and-drop designer canvas. Teams can conceptualize, visualize, and iterate on their workflows to achieve the desired results for the organization. Nintex also allows users to automatically generate, sign, and store documents. Businesses can deploy agile and automated workflow solutions that help deliver projects on time with fewer opportunities for error, miscommunication, or wasted time.


Nintex Sign, powered by Adobe Sign, enables users to create eSignature tasks within their automated workflows with just a few clicks. Users can automatically send business-critical documents and contracts for signature. This eSignature feature refines the signing process for internal and external stakeholders by allowing them to quickly and securely sign documents in just minutes. Businesses can eliminate manual, paper-based tasks while increasing speed-to-decision. Nintex Sign ensures that the electronic signature on the document is legally compliant and meets the industry and regulatory requirements. It complies with stringent global security standards to provide users with an enterprise-grade automation software.
