Gravity Flow is amazing, easy to work with, and implementation at its best!
I was looking for a BPM (Business Process Management) tool that wasn’t complex and didn’t require too much development to get the turnaround time to implement to production without the manpower, resource time and space needed for a full-blown BPM suite. That’s when I found just the right tool to do the job; “Gravity Flow”. Gravity Flow is by no means a full-blown BPM suite but there are so many things that fit into our business needs that this was it.
I had an unusual use case from the normal reviews and functions Gravity Flow has pre-built in its tool so I was skeptical going into it. But I gave it a try and I was simply amazed that I was able to not only download it and install it in minutes but build the workflow and implement a process in just a few hours. Our company had been tracking requests manually by email and spreadsheets and it was always difficult to track any progress or changes to the tracker. Data was always lost and who knows what version the spreadsheet was on. This solved that problem and more. Not only we were able to keep every record in one place but track progress and follow up on everything we put through Gravity Flow. Deadlines were met and no more questions about the spreadsheet tracker.
If you own a business or work in an environment that requires approvals, tracking, and needs to speed up any process I would highly recommend this tool. I have to say one more thing about Gravity Flow and that is the amount of information and support you get is awesome! I was able to answers to my questions very quickly and the online documentation is very detailed.
To put it simple, Gravity Flow is amazing, easy to work with, and implementation at its best!

A wonderful, cost effective solution
We use Gravity Flow for central enrollment of students as well as numerous annual forms and processes required by state law.
We are a large public school district in the state of Ohio. Like many districts in our area, we use Google Apps for Education and are nearly 1:1 with Chromebooks. The web has become the platform for instruction as well as procedural applications. We use WordPress, Gravity Forms, Gravity Flow, and Google Apps Login to run workflows like central enrollment, field trip requests, professional development leave, and continuing education credits.
Using central enrollment as an example: Parents complete the enrollment form via a simple form interface. In accordance to the Gravity Flow logic, the form is routed to the relevant schools, central office, and finally back to the parent.
Schools in Ohio are constantly presented with registration solutions and/or workflow solutions that cost between $65,000 to $90,000 a year. Needless-to-say, Gravity Flow is a wonderful, cost effective solution to many of the process we encounter in the public school setting.

Gravity Flow will save $4k-$5k/year in admin costs.
We have 2-3 microgrant calls each year, and we hire someone to manage the applications. I get an expense breakdown of how much time she’s spent on what (e.g 1 hr sending emails, 2-hrs sending approvals etc…). For each microgrant call, it can range from about 20-30 hrs. She gets paid about $35/hr CAD. With the workflow application, we can reduce it to about 4-5 hrs. We’re also getting an increasing number of applications each term. Pair that up with using Gravity Flow for managing expense approvals, which need an approval process, I think this year we can save about $4000-$5000CAD. That does not include the headache involved with completing some of these tasks manually.

Turnaround time reduced to just a few minutes
Gravity Flow is a game changer. It has reduced the time we need to spend chasing down where work is at, and the tool has facilitated the back and forth communication with sales.
Ted Vena, Head of Production, Mariani
Gravity Flow has been heavily leveraged to optimize the typical handoffs between departments. From vacation requests and approvals, to mileage reimbursement requests, to many department-specific workflows, Gravity Flow has been used to automate many workflows that were previously paper-based and to replace workflows that were previously implemented in a SharePoint system that was prone to issues.
Since implementing Gravity Flow, turnaround time has been reduced to just a few minutes instead of days or weeks.
Our group is seen as a hero because of Gravity Flow. We are able to rapidly implement complex workflows, and then work with the business groups to tweak them as necessary as they get used in the real world.

Fast and easily customizable
Prior to using Gravity Flow, our company printed out forms for employees to submit to their supervisors for approval. Some of these forms included: Overtime Approval, Time Off Requests, Vehicle Information, Mileage Reimbursement, Employee and Emergency Contact Information, and Meal Waivers. These printed forms were often lost, accidentally thrown away, or forgotten on a desk. Gravity Flow is able to send reminders automatically to ensure the forms are completed in a timely fashion. This helps our employees remember to complete their forms amongst their busy schedules.
We started with a simple WordPress Intranet and have now evolved into a one-stop shop to handle all of our forms. Gravity Flow has simplified processes that previously caused many problems. I would recommend this system to anyone looking to create fast and easily customizable workflows in an environment where printing, scanning, emailing and printing again is common practice.
I’d like to point out a few key features that influenced our purchase. First, Gravity Flow has the ability to send forms back to an employee with notes. The employee can then update their form and resubmit for approval. This has saved us a lot of time when submitting forms for approval, especially on items such as Overtime Requests. Gravity Flow also has full audit trail and reporting which we have found to be very useful. We are able to generate reports based on key fields in the form that produce statistics for management to utilize. This will assist in the decision making process for appropriate staffing based on the location and day of the week for Overtime Requests. We also benefit from Gravity Flow’s ability to submit a completed workflow in the format of a PDF so that reviewing and storing the form is incredibly efficient.
Not only do we like the product itself, but we have also found the support team to be very helpful. I have been in contact with the Gravity Flow support team during my efforts to fine tune our workflows and stream line the processes and they were very helpful in finding a solution.

We used Gravity Flow to automate all the manual processes that happens after a form entry. By creating workflows with the plugin we can automate approvals and inputs on each entry. Woohoo! Because we can customize the workflow by user, entry field or conditional logic – it truly fits our business processes. The Gravity Flow support was great in responding to our questions too. Just perfect!

Gravity Flow provides essential functionality
Gravity Flow provides essential functionality for our corporate intranet. The features and functionalities are robust, well architected and executed, and at the same time, impressively simple to configure and implement. And the support from the developer has been among the best I’ve experienced. Our inaugural project using Gravity Flow is the transition of employee travel requests from paper to the company intranet. Using Gravity Flow, our employees no longer need to print and complete forms by hand and track down their supervisors for signatures or to submit requests via interoffice mail; it now all happens online with email notifications and the Gravity Flow approval tools. The process is more efficient, saving time and money, with the added benefit of approval status tracking for every request. I’m already looking forward to future projects where Gravity Flow can be used to help lower costs and improve efficiencies.

Gravity Flow is a game changer
Gravity Flow is a game changer and an integral part of our employee intranet. It is remarkably easy to use and flexible to fit any approvals/workflow scenario. We currently use it for employee time tracking/reporting, expense claim forms, training requisition forms, health and safety incident reports and a few other applications. Gravity Flow allowed us to mirror our existing multi-step paper approvals process entirely electronically – saving us money and time through increased administrative efficiency.

Exactly what we were looking for hands down
We’re a small school who needed the ability to gather students information, process tuition costs and e-Sign enrollment docs in one easily understandable workflow.
Fortunately, we found Gravity Flow and quickly discovered it was exactly what we were looking for hands down and here’s why.
As with any solution, the initial learning curve had challenges.. but one single email to them explaining where I was stuck and in no time flat, I had the workflow operating perfectly.
In fact, Gravity Flow even made an update based on the particular issue I was encountering.
I’ve experienced an array of different support types over the years, from shady to superb. The people at Gravity Flow are superb, fast and friendly. Most importantly, they listened to my need and helped me assemble it. Even items beyond the scope of their solution, the GF team was helpful in suggesting resources that would help get the job done.
At the end of the day, if you’re considering a WordPress based Workflow / Automation solution, consider Gravity Flow. It does exactly what it says it does and comes with a team ready to assist.
Thanks again Gravity Flow, your solution is greatly appreciated.

Gravity Flow has eliminated bottlenecks
Gravity Flow is a vital component of the successful operations of our fast-moving urgent courier business for official documents. We implemented the workflow ourselves very easily with a combination of approval, user input and SMS notification steps so the distributed team is always co-ordinated and the whole process runs smoothly. Our customers absolutely love it because they’re kept in the loop at all times about last minute changes and requests for information. One of the most important features for us is the ability to send SMS messages at key points in the process because it’s the only reliable way to communicate urgently with our team in the field and with customers who aren’t always at their desk. Gravity Flow has eliminated bottlenecks and made the whole process more efficient from beginning to end.

Gravity Flow is saving us and our customers a huge amount of time and money every day
We analysed and evaluated several solutions including Sharepoint, Formstack and Jotform but we found Gravity Flow on WordPress Multisite to be the best solution for the management of all the processes for our customer extranet. With Gravity Flow users now stay within the same familiar platform for all their processes increasing efficiency and enhancing collaboration. The implementation was quick and easy to configure, taking only a few hours to complete. The maintenance is very simple and we’ve found the system to be very stable. Gravity Flow is saving us and our customers a huge amount of time and money every day.

The use cases are limitless
Our client runs a website for high-end villa and chalet rentals. When there is an incident with a guest where a refund is required, the team fill out a standard form in excel which calculates the refund and send it to their supervisor for approval before its sent to finance to process. The project was to replace the Excel spreadsheet with an automated web based solution with notifications and a status dashboard for easier review and transparency. It was important to have a front-end view with easy navigation and mobile support for a globally distributed team which use smartphones, tablets and laptops on the go. The time saved by centralizing the forms in a web portal and deprecating the reliance on email attachments is huge. This plugin has huge ramifications for the management of information on websites. It has the power to automate actions, create complex workflows and streamline processes. The use cases are limitless.

Gravity Flow helps us give candidates an impressive experience
Gravity Flow has allowed us to mostly automate our hiring process, right up until the final interview stage. It’s a tricky process to automate but Gravity Forms and Gravity Flow have helped us give job candidates an impressive experience. Best of all, support from the developers is amazing. Every question (even highly technical and detailed ones) have been answered quickly and with an exceptional level of detail that I’m simply not used to from help desks.
Gravity Flow is a fantastic plugin that offers seamless integration with Gravity Forms, and the support is even better. Our client’s specific need was a delayed email response based on a date provided in the form, and we got it up and running within 24 hours. Amazing.

Gravity Flow will increase our efficiency
We are a 24×7 operation running a local radio station in the UK. We rely heavily on volunteers and have a distributed workforce. We are using or planning to use Gravity Flow to enforce process on things like expenditure authorisation and claims, fault tickets and volunteer sign-up and induction along with the creation of a content library. Having a tool like Gravity Flow we believe will reduce significantly the amount of unstructured email communication and increase our efficiency.

Extremely flexible and easy to understand
Gravity Flow on my client’s intranet site means they can finally graduate from handing around pieces of paper (literally!) to having a fully automated system. Gravity Flow is extremely flexible and easy to understand – a combination that is hard to come by. Once you’ve set up one workflow it’s a breeze. Managers at my client’s firm can now quickly and easily see who’s doing what, and they have so much more control over the processes. Every person/role in the process can get customised notifications – no more chasing people around the office to see where they’re at with their paperwork. Hours upon hours will be saved, and so many headaches will be avoided.
Gravity Flow allowed us to quickly and easily implement a solution to our form processing needs. We were able to automate notification messages based on administrator updates in a way that wasn’t possible with Gravity Forms alone. The user interface is easy to use and documentation is helpful and detailed. Using Gravity Flow saved us time on the dev side as we did not need to develop an in-house solution and eliminated user-error on the processing side since notifications are now automated. Highly recommended!
Gravity Flow turned weeks into days
Utilizing Gravity Flow has allowed us to streamline our firearms transfer process, keeping our customers in the loop throughout their firearms purchase and transfer process. Without Gravity Flow, we were looking at weeks of development to complete the same web based process and tracking. Gravity Flow turned those weeks into days.
The client is over the moon
A client asked us to develop an Incident Management and Reporting Tool for use within the Food and Hospitality industry into their website, which we were developing with WordPress. Gravity Flow came along just as we were searching for a solution to the workflow management. We have been impressed with how the development of Gravity Flow has progressed, always adding features we are wanting even before we asked! We have saved time and money and the client is over the moon! We have other clients with projects that could benefit from the features Gravity Flow offers and we will certainly be looking to integrate it in the future.
