  • There is the occasional error when developing workflows/integrating them with Smartforms which do not show up until deployment.Sam U.Read the full review
  • Debugging workflows and SmartForms could use more descriptive, or even custom, error messages. Citizen developers are often overwhelmed by the more technical aspects of that process.Verified ReviewerRead the full review

Pros
Best things were: - Speed of Delivery - Price - K2 Professional Services Team - Reliability of what was delivered

Cons
Problems were: - Some features that we would like are yet to be added - Out of the Box reports could be improved; but we integrated with another reporting product and built our own very easily

We jumped into the K2 world with both feet, and did not make irt easy for oursleves by having our first app as a significicantly complex app. This has contributed to some of our issues - but K2 does have architectural issues that we hope will be addressed in 2020 releases.

Pros
Low code approach > Productivity Number of integrations out of the box > Productivity K2 people and support received

Cons
lack of support for CI/CD inability to have more than one instance (version) of an app on one server performance can degrade quite quickly the standard UI

K2 for Developers

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

K2 is an awesome tool and great skill to have. As more companies adapt low code solutions they will definitely be the front runner for such solutions .

Pros
K2 Smartforms and blackpearl was an easy transition from an C# SQL .net developer background to their latest Technologies. No more tedious code to step through , easy code control , GREAT deployment features with ease of use .

Cons
The installation is quite a mammoth task , and , low code can be cumbersome to first expose the API and then consume with Swagger etc.

Powerfull no code platform

We have a team of 5 people developing a Enterprise solution with K2. We are satisfied with the possibilities K2 gives us and are very content with the level of support whenever required. The customer service is personal, quick and helpfull.

Pros
The platform is set-up with a data driven philosophy. It has a powerfull integration layer and data is your starting point for everything. As long as you understand the way of thinking of a developer, you can work with this platform. It is easy to learn. We have used it for a complex Enterprise level solution which it supports just fine. I like the options that you have to make it more flexible, like custom service brokers. Also the workflow engine is very powerfull. Last but not least the designer has quite a large amount of controls that can be used when building your views and forms.

Cons
Troubleshooting / debugging your solution is a bit difficult. You need to place message boxes in your form to validate parameter / control values for example. Also finding where rules are called is difficult, although there is a 3rd party solution for this available which is very helpfull.

I have used K2 blackpearl and K2 five for 5 years on medium to great projects. It is one of the best values for money in the BPM market. It still has a margin for improvement in customization and deployment tasks. Its support team is simply awesome.

Pros
Easy to learn and use. You can develop professional-grade workflow-based applications in days. Really extensible using its service brokers.

Cons
Not so easy to master, it is easy to do a lot of things but is also easy to do it terribly wrong impacting the overall performance. Smartforms are not the most beautiful user interface except you want to invest a lot of time, although is really fast to add functionality to a solution is hard to customize it. It does not support some great staff like multilanguage out of the box.

Best workflow software I have seen

Used weekly for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-04-26
Review Source: Capterra

We have taken a number of traditional database applications and re-created them as workflow processes. This has meant we have replaced some legacy applications for a fraction of the time and cost involved with building new custom coded solutions.

Pros
It's ability to connect to all our other business systems, such as SQL Server and Oracle, and create workflow processes quickly and easily.

Cons
We had a few teething issues with the installation and setup but these are to be expected when introducing a new system, but I have not found anything that I dislike.

A good value solution for a small charity.

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Our overall experience has been positive. K2 is a good company to work with and they have been very supportive of our use of their product. K2 is a good value solution that has enabled a small charity to develop systems streamlining some of our recording and reporting processes and procedures for staff. The fact that we have been able to develop our solutions in house using K2 means we have the ability to adapt to changing needs or legal requirements quickly and relatively easily.

Pros
The flexibility of K2 is great. You can get it to do pretty much anything. We use Sharepoint so the integration K2 has with it is very useful. The new workflow designer is excellent and much clearer than the old one.

Cons
There is a steep learning curve, especially if you are not an IT professional. Some of the documentation could do with updating as it is old and does not really explain some of the features very clearly. Moving data around between different forms, views and subviews can sometimes be a bit harder than it perhaps could be.
