Nintex Highlights for 2019


For all of the amazing customers and partners of Nintex, this blog is dedicated to you!


It's hard to believe that the last few days of 2019 is upon us. If you're like me you are probably scratching your head like where did the year go?


Even though the year is coming to an end, I figured it would only be appropriate to recap some of the amazing accomplishments on the Nintex platform during 2019:


Before I begin this blog, I would like to pay homage to our Nintex family member Tom Castiglia. Tom was a man of faith, compassion, and excitement for Nintex. You are missed my friend, and will always be remembered!
