A Quick Look at The New K2 Blackpoint

Posted in SharePoint Product News

new-product Staying true to our tradition to share practical no-code solutions with SharePoint Reviews’ readers, new K2 blackpoint is certainly worth the coverage. In beta since October 2008, K2 blackpoint was just released and the company already published its first success story with Armitron, a US-based manufacturer and distributor of watches and K2 blackpoint’s early adopter...

K2 blackpoint is a feature-rich software that allows business users and non-developers to quickly and easily build workflow solutions and process-driven applications within SharePoint (for MOSS 2007 and WSS v3). Simplicity and usability of K2 blackpoint lays in drag-and-drop functionality, a Microsoft Office-style designer (their own K2 Studio) and a Silverlight-based K2 Web Designer.

Take a look at K2 blackpoint’s appealing interfaces.

Armitron: Sharing Their Success with K2 blackpoint

Armitron’s team has been using Microsoft SharePoint since early 2008, but they have been hitting walls as out-of-the-box workflows and even the SharePoint Designer workflow tools were not sufficient for them and required too much custom development. The team needed something that would easily enable them to streamline processes, reduce human errors and delays. Microsoft suggested looking at K2.

Armitron started working with the K2 blackpoint technology in its early beta stages. Their processes are complex and involve many accounts, many users and many routing scenarios. The company needed to be able to set destination rules and reuse the workflows across multiple processes.

Armitron used K2 blackpoint to build workflows for several reports and data-entry review tasks. In every step, rules and policies prevent errors, further streamlining each process. A complete audit trail is kept on all activity; full reporting capabilities and other visibility features improve the company’s responsiveness and allow it to make better decisions.

Armitron was able to take advantage of the new K2 blackpoint functionality and was live with five processes even before the product was released on the market.
