Process Street and Tallyfy: Overview
Process Street emphasizes simplicity and a familiar spreadsheet-like interface. It lets you quickly build checklists and evolve them into workflows by adding stop tasks to them.
Tallyfy emphasizes the passing of the baton metaphor in its documentation, however, in a twist of irony, enforcing sequential execution of steps in a process is actually trickier in Tallyfy than it is in Process Street. Tallyfy has no such thing as stop tasks, instead you need to add conditions to only make some steps visible after some other steps have been completed.
Tallify does, however, offer extra features when it comes to document management, allowing users to easily automate the filling out of various types of documents that get passed on from stage to stage within a workflow. Tallyfy, in fact, emphasizes document management to such an extent that it even offers a free documentation management automation plan.

Key Features Comparison
Workflow Creation and Management
Process Street provides a user-friendly interface for creating and managing checklists and workflows. It supports conditional logic, allowing you to create dynamic checklists that adapt to different situations. Furthermore, the stop-task feature lets users enforce sequential assignment and execution in a more straightforward way than in Tallyfy, without the need to resort to adding special rules to tasks.
Tallyfy offers a straightforward process blueprint builder, allowing users to create detailed and structured workflows with relative ease. Tasks in a process can be completed in any sequence by default, but users can enforce sequential assignment and completion by adding rules to each task in the process.
Automation and Integrations
Process Street offers a wide range of integrations, including Zapier, which allows users to connect with over 1,000 apps to automate tasks and streamline workflows. The platform also provides webhook support and a REST API for custom integrations.
Tallyfy supports native integration with Slack, Gmail, and offers a REST API for building custom integrations. It also has good support for Zapier integrations, allowing users to automate various tasks and connect with other popular tools.
Collaboration and Task Management
Both Tallyfy and Process Street offer features that promote team collaboration. Both let you build collaborative processes by assigning different tasks to different users in the same process. Information can then be shared within the context of a specific process.
Both systems, however, show users all the tasks in a process by default. This approach works fine in small tightly-knit teams but can cause information overload and confusion in larger teams.
Tallyfy does offer an edge in document management, which can also be used as a standalone feature in a free plan.
Reporting and Analytics
Process Street offers a reporting dashboard that displays key metrics and insights, helping users understand the performance of their workflows and make data-driven decisions.
Tallyfy provides a Tracker feature that allows users to view their workflows and offers support for custom views and tags. However, it lacks the kind of advanced reporting and analytics capabilities found in Process Street.
Process Street has rolled out new pricing plans offering a startup plan for $1,000 per year, a Pro Plan for $5,000 per year and an enterprise plan for $20,000 per year: you get unlimited workflows in all plans. The principal difference between the plans is in the advanced features that are available in the more expensive plans and are excluded from the startup plan and the number of members and guest users that can have simultaneous access to the plan.
Tallyfy’s workflow management plan costs $30 per user per month, supporting advanced features and workflow management.
Tallyfy and Process Street are both powerful tools for business process management, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses. Process Street, on the other hand, is an excellent choice for businesses that require more flexibility and advanced features in their workflow management software. With its strong automation capabilities, extensive integrations, and advanced reporting and analytics, Process Street is a great option for organizations looking to optimize their operations and gain valuable insights into their workflows.
Tallyfy is a good choice for businesses looking for an affordable and straightforward solution with good integration support. It is particularly suitable for organizations that don’t require advanced reporting or analytics and are mainly focused on simplifying and streamlining their day to day processes.
Ultimately, the choice between Process Street and Tallyfy will depend on your organization’s specific needs and priorities. By considering the features, pricing, and pros and cons of each platform, you can make an informed decision that best supports your business’s workflow management goals.
