Process management and automation solutions provider Nintex has today announced the release of its new digital forms designer to quickly and easily create sophisticated electronic forms to simplify the collection of information anytime, anywhere and seamlessly kick-off cloud-based process workflows.

“Nintex is committed to transforming the way people work”, says Nintex chief technology officer Alain Gentilhomme.

“Our new Nintex Forms designer is fast and intuitive by design, helping enterprises accelerate digital transformation and reduce their reliance on paper forms and manual processes with digital forms powered by automated workflows.”

This new forms designer is part of the Nintex Process Platform, which enables enterprises to manage, automate and optimise simple to sophisticated business processes — by drag-and-drop configuring rather than complex coding.

Nintex Forms built with the new designer are “responsive” and automatically adapt to the size and shape of the device screen on which they are rendered, making them clearer and more user-friendly.

Nintex users can also quickly apply sophisticated business logic, rich formatting, and custom branding to any digital form.

Nintex customers and partners submit millions of Nintex Forms each month, often at the start of workflows that automate critical business processes.

The new forms designer includes an enhanced drag-and-drop interface, support for sophisticated business rules and complex formulas, geolocation controls, and support for multi-page forms and e-signatures.

“Nintex is proud to help everyone create engaging forms that are easy to read and complete,” says Nintex senior product manager Euan Gamble, who leads the development of Nintex Forms.

“Leveraging rules and formulas, it's never been easier to create forms that dynamically change based on user behaviour and inline formula validation, so the user isn't burdened with unnecessary fields or information.” 

Gamble adds, “We appreciate that IT departments continually face growing demands from business groups and that many organisations still struggle with slow, cumbersome, and error-prone paper processes.”

Customers may adopt the new designer now or continue to use Nintex's “classic” forms designer within Nintex for Office 365 and Nintex Workflow Cloud.

An on-premises version of the new designer will be available in the coming months.
