Copy SharePoint List to another site collection

I'm working on SharePoint 2013 platform where there are several sites and site collections in our farm.  Many departments are cross-functional and use the same data.  Instead of duplicating the process, we would like to copy a few fields that are currently captured in an existing SharePoint list which is located in a different site collection and copy it to our site.  How would this be created?

Re: Copy SharePoint List to another site collection

While the workflow may be limited in pulling the different list from one site to the next, you can still use a workflow to coordinate and orchestrate the process of copying. You can query the information you want to copy and then use a web service call to create a new item in the new site collection. Without building it out myself, I think this is something that is doable and easy with Nintex.
