Nintex Workflow and Xtensions

What is great about the Nintex Workflow Platform is that it is extensible.  The platform provides multiple opportunities for customers to connect their workflows to their crucial applications, services, data stores, and systems of record.

Nintex provides pre-built connectors, which can be used to link workflows to commonly used enterprise solutions such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamic CRM, Box, and Dropbox.  Nintex also provides extensibility through Nintex actions such as “Call a web service”, “query JSON”, and “External Start”.

Nintex Workflow Cloud and File Collections

SuperUser Account

Do you know that Nintex can handle file collections?  Picture a scenario where an insurance agent inspects a property and takes some pictures for a case file.  Once the agent uploads the files to Box they can fill in their form giving details of the property such as location and estimated value.

A workflow will start once the agent submits the case file, it will query the content management system; in this case, it is Box; find the appropriate files and store them in a File Collection. A task action in the workflow such as Express Approval or Assign a Task can be used to send the files to a case manager.

1) Always tell the customer everything you know about their IT environment – keep information from a customer is not the way to build a trust relationship
2) If we do our job well and everything works, people may ask “Why are we paying these guys”.  If we mess up, they will ask the same question.  That’s why we send monthly executive reports so everyone knows what we are doing behind the curtain...

Undercover Boss – they will never make a show about me

SuperUser Account

I don’t really watch much TV, but one of my favorite reality shows is Undercover Boss.  This is a show where they take some honcho, give him/her a wig, glasses, perhaps a fake nose and then have them dress down as an entry level worker to go undercover and discover what it is really like to work at their own company...

When Disaster Strikes

I have found that there is a large swath of small and mid-sized organizations that will spend a lot of money on the decorum in their office space. At the same time, they will fight tooth and nail to NOT put money into a viable and reliable backup of their organizations critical data.
