Aragon Research has selected Nintex as a leader in its Globe for Digital Business Platforms, 2021 report, recognising the Nintex platform in the market alongside three of the biggest technology firms.

Aragon independently evaluated 16 major software providers and their digital business platforms. Aragon states these platforms are ‘highly dynamic integration hubs that intelligently coordinate goal-directed work and support interactions between people, software, and machines'.

Nintex chief executive officer Eric Johnson says the world is becoming more automated and competitive.

“Effective digital business platforms provide organisations with immediate ROI thanks to powerful and easy-to-use automation capabilities that rapidly turn repetitive tasks and manual, paper-based processes into modern digital experiences.

Aragon Research credits Nintex for its focus on “human and digital labour workflows to move organisations toward aggregate operational productivity and excellence”.

Earlier this month Nintex announced its acquisition of electronic signature and digital transaction software provider, AssureSign.

AssureSign currently has more than 100,000 active monthly users and 500 customers. It provides APIs and eSign via Text, which enables organisations to send documents for signature to any device, at any time, from anywhere.

The acquisition will enable Nintex to provide a native e-signature capability within its Process Platform.

Johnson says AssureSign's automation technologies are well architected. and will be integrated within Nintex Process Platform over the coming months.

The Nintex Process platform includes Nintex Promapp as well as a range of mobile apps, digital forms, workflows, robotic process automation (RPA), DocGen and eSignature capabilities.

AssureSign CEO David Brinkman adds, “On behalf of the entire AssureSign team, we are thrilled to make eSignatures a critical part of Nintex's market-leading process management and automation platform.

“Our cultures are both perfectly centred around our combined passion for customer success and we look forward to rapidly integrating AssureSign's eSignatures with Nintex's digital workflows and forms, document automation, and more.

Commenting on the acquisition, Aragon CEO and lead analyst Jim Lundy says Nintex is focused on delivering on its growth strategy and positioning itself as a ‘leading' digital business platform.

“The choice to acquire AssureSign brings together two digital transaction management leaders who have deep knowledge of what is required for organisations to remain competitive in today's increasingly automated world.

Nintex currently serves more than 10,000 customers across 90 countries. The company generates upwards of $250 million in sales annually.

AssureSign is Nintex's fourth acquisition since Thoma Bravo became the company's majority investor in early 2018.
