THE NINTEX STORY
Brian Cook and Brett Campbell wanted to change the world. They founded Nintex in 2006 after realizing that transforming the way people work would do that.
That year, Brian and Steve Heaney, who is now Nintex’s Chief Technology Officer, developed the first version of Nintex Workflow, which enables people to quickly and easily automate processes into streamlined workflows. Nintex Workflow’s impact became clear when Brett was walking down a street in Berlin in 2008. A man saw his Nintex T-shirt, excitedly ran up to him and told him, “I love Nintex. It’s so cool.” Brett introduced himself as a Nintex founder and the man offered to buy him a drink. “To have that happen was so great,” Brett says.
Nintex launched Nintex Forms 2010 after executives received repeated requests for a forms product that was easy to use and accessible to business users. That year, executives gathered around a table to brainstorm company mottos. The winner? Workflow for Everyone. It perfectly summed up the widespread appeal of Nintex’s workflow platform.
“Everyone was saying, ‘My developers can use this, my business users can use it, the IT pros can understand it,’ ” Brett says. “An IT pro found it powerful, a business user found it easy and a developer found it sophisticated.”
That’s a big reason why John Burton decided to become Nintex’s CEO in September 2013 after years as an investor.
“It was really easy to use,” John says. “It was a way to build applications without having to depend on IT. It’s very powerful.”
