In today’s fast-paced business environment, the ability to streamline operations and enhance efficiency is more crucial than ever. At Nintex, we understand the importance of continuous innovation to empower our users with the best tools for optimizing their business processes. We are thrilled to announce a game-changing feature that seamlessly bridges the gap between traditional process mapping and modern process automation: The ability to import Microsoft Visio files and create BPMN process models directly within Nintex. 


Elevating Process Mapping to New Heights 

Microsoft Visio has long been a staple for professionals across various industries to diagram complex processes and systems. However, transforming these static diagrams into consistent, managed, documentation can often be challenging and time-consuming. Recognizing this gap, our team at Nintex embarked on a mission to create a bridge between Visio’s process diagrams and Nintex’s robust process management capabilities. 


Introducing Visio File Import and BPMN Model Creation 

The latest feature within Nintex Process Manager introduces an intuitive, seamless way to import your existing Microsoft Visio diagrams into the Nintex platform.  Once imported, these diagrams are automatically converted into BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) models. This conversion is not just a visual transformation; it’s a leap towards living, managed documentation, and future automatable workflows that can drive efficiency and productivity across your organization. 


Key Features and Benefits

  • Seamless Integration: Import Visio files directly into Nintex with just a few clicks, eliminating the need for manual re-drawing or complex conversions. 

  • Automatic BPMN Conversion: Transform your static Visio diagrams into dynamic BPMN models, ready for further refinement and automation within the Nintex platform. 

  • Enhanced Collaboration: Leverage the collaborative features of Nintex to refine, optimize, and automate your processes with input from stakeholders across your organization. 

  • Streamlined Process Optimization: Identify bottlenecks, redundancies, and opportunities for automation within your imported diagrams to drive continuous improvement. 


How It Works 

The process is straightforward and user-friendly: 


  1. Select and Import: Choose the Visio file you wish to import. Our platform supports the core process shapes within Visio, including Process Flow, UML, and BPMN, to ensure compatibility. 

  1. Review and Refine: Once imported, your diagram is automatically converted into a BPMN model. You can then review, edit, and refine the model within our intuitive interface. 

  2. Automate and Execute: With your BPMN model ready, you can easily start working with your automation teams to  define and build your workflows, turning your process diagrams into real-world efficiencies.

This new feature is more than just a tool; it’s a catalyst for transformation. By enabling the direct import of Visio files and their conversion into BPMN models, we’re not just simplifying the transition from documentation to automation; we’re redefining what’s possible in process optimization. 


Whether you’re a long-time Nintex user or new to the platform, this feature opens up new possibilities for improving your business processes. It’s designed to save you time, reduce errors, and most importantly, empower your organization to focus on what truly matters: delivering value.
