Editors' Review

+

Bizagi Modeler creates efficient flowcharts, models and maps business processes, generates documentation, and facilitates collaboration. Fast, lightweight, and easy to learn, Bizagi Modeler includes extensive support: user communities, forums, training, certification, and free resources.

Pros

BPMN for free: The ability to create cutting-edge flowcharts for free, from any desktop gives startups, entrepreneurs, and small business owners advantages that even the largest companies lacked not so long ago.

Office-like interface: Bizagi Modeler's efficient and crisply rendered user interface borrows the Ribbon toolbar and other elements from Office, giving it a familiar look and feel that integrates equally well with corporate environments and personal desktops.

For business, not code: Unlike some modelers, Bizagi Modeler is specifically designed for businesspeople and other non-technical users, not coders.

Support: A User Guide, video tutorials, and online forums and training deliver support that few other tools of Bizagi Modeler's type can match, let alone for free. Joining Bizagi's user community enables access to more free resources, like templates.

Cons

Best practices: It's not an issue with Bizagi Modeler so much as with BPMN itself, but the vendor-based and user-based BPMN communities sometimes differ on matters, such as best practices.

Bottom Line

Businesspeople looking for an edge should check out Bizagi Modeler. It creates attractive, enterprise-quality BPMN flowcharts that can bring efficiency and clarity to many processes. That it does so for free and with unmatched support seems remarkable.

"Works great with a few little quirks."

June 24, 2015  |  By redliz5808

 |  Version: Bizagi Modeler 2.9.0.4

Pros

My company uses this software only for process modeling. So this is based on the free version.
Interface is very user friendly. Quick adding and editing of process boxes. There are definitely a lot of text and color formatting options. Allows publishing to our intranet which allows easy access for our users. Our users really like the look and feel of the published process map. The published process is also mobile friendly.

Cons

Lines between boxes can be a little quirky so it takes extra time to straighten them out if you move a box. Bullet points / Numbering doesn't work too nicely. I've noticed if I indent them, the program sometimes will automatically reset them and then when published to our intranet they are all flush left instead of indented how they should be. Can't change the logo so the published version still says Bizagi even though we'd like it to have our logo.

Summary

There are a few quirks, but overall this product works well for what we need. Even using just the free version has helped our company quite a bit.

"Easy to Use with Attractive Diagrams, but a bit Slow"

June 23, 2015  |  By queenb113

 |  Version: Bizagi Modeler 2.9.0.4

Pros

Intuitive and easy to use.
You can add a lot of detail if you wish, or keep it basic.
It's free!
Can include multiple diagrams within one file.

Cons

If you have a lot of diagrams in one file, it can be slow to use.
If you resize any of the shapes, the lines between the shapes can become crooked and it's hard to get them straight again.
Slow to load.
I have been using Bizagi for 3 years, got all the upgrades, and to this day, I still can't click on File-->Print without getting and Unhandled Exception that crashes the program.

Summary

My go-to process modeling tool that's easy to use and pleasing to the eye.

"Easy and intuitive to use"

June 19, 2015  |  By HILARYN789

 |  Version: Bizagi Modeler 2.9.0.4

Pros

While I haven't used the product to its full, I found it very intuitive and easy to draw process diagrams. I was able to export as .png to send to business users who don't have Bizagi installed.

Cons

Print facility - printed overflowed onto separate pages when printing as .bpm. However, I found that unticking "Fit to page" when printing as .png worked well for the diagrams I have done. (Using version 2.8.0.8.)

Summary

Very pleased with the product.

"ANSI standards, Simple to use, great to document"

June 18, 2015

 |  Version: Bizagi Modeler 2.9.0.4

Pros

Easy to make simple and complex maps that most anyone can understand.
Great videos to learn the icons and their use. Well worth the time investment.
You can just draw and annotate without worrying about the more complicated rules.
If you annotate the drawing, you'll end up with great documentation by default.
Each version is getting better and easier to use.

Cons

Mapping can be daunting at first since there are many definitions and options.
Paging maps is challenging

Summary

This is one of the best opensource programs I have used. It is very feature rich but still simple enough to use out of box (off the wire:-) with just a little help from the videos. From there you can take it wherever you want or need.

What's new in version 2.9.0.4
Version 2.9.0.4:
New features
  • Print preview shortcut - You can now open the print preview dialog using the Ctrl+p shortcut, to print your process diagrams faster.
  • Run the diagram validation before activating the Simulation Mode. Validate if a diagram contains mixed gateways - From this version the simulation mode cannot be activated if there are errors in the diagram (missing connectors, mixed gateways, etc.). A validation displays when the user tries to activate the simulation mode if the diagram has modeling errors. As well, a validation of mixed gateways has been included when saving the model.
Improvements
  • Process Central changes to Process Xchange - The text "Process Central" was replaced by "Process Xchange" along Bizagi Modeler. The Process Central icon was also updated to the new Process Xchange logo.
  • Disable the Modeler tour - The Modeler tour displayed the first time users open the Bizagi Modeler can now be deactivated by using a key.
  • Select diagram elements to be published by double clicking them - In previous versions, the selection of diagram elements to be published was done by using a button. From this version, elements to be published can also be selected by double clicking them, speeding up the publish process.
