On Demand: Business Process Contract Management – Where Process, Collaboration, and Contract Management meet to fill the technology gaps.

 

 

Reviewing and negotiating a complex contract often requires input from various internal advisors / stakeholders. Each internal reviewer may in turn have their own unique review and comment process depending on the type and value of the contract.

During this video, we will be demonstrating how easy it is to improve employee experience with a combination of Process and document collaboration.

Watch now see how to:

  • Leverage technology to scan contracts for key high-risk clauses
  • Assign tasks based on business rules, workload and other business parameters.
  • Manage parallel and ad hoc process requirements.
  • Leverage best of breed technologies like SharePoint, Microsoft Word Co-Authoring, DocuSign to provide a collaborative experience.
  • Make informed decisions on where to apply expert resources based on risk profiling and ratings.

K2 Cloud and K2 Five Training Dates for 2018!

The K2 Core and K2 smartforms training is an instructor-led or self-study training course designed to give participants the skills and knowledge to create process-driven applications with K2 workflows, SmartObjects and smartforms, without writing any code.

This course is intended for:

  • Anyone who wants a basic overview of K2 and how K2 is used.
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to build applications with K2.
  • Anyone who wants to move on to more advanced modules, for example Developers.

During this course, participants will learn:

  • How to build simple to intermediate-level applications in K2 that include SmartObjects, SmartForms, and Workflows
  • We will cover how to use standard and custom reporting in K2
  • Some typical, day-to-day administration tasks in K2

Most modules include a hands-on exercise where attendees will apply the knowledge they have gained in that module to build a K2 application. Attendees will be provided with a “sandbox” environment where they can then build out the application during the course.

On Demand: Remove the burden of Records Management from employee experience

 

 

 

Are you finding it difficult to manage digital record keeping whilst trying to support users to adopt the practices?

Applying retention policies to content in SharePoint Online remains a massive headache for records managers.

Imagine the benefits of being able to expose a digital form inside the easy to use SharePoint Online [Office 365], whereby having the ability to capture data and attach documents in real time, save the data directly to HP Records Manager in order to comply with all record keeping practices?

Too good to be true? Think again.

In this scenario we will demonstrate a K2 form embedded into SharePoint, attaching documents directly from HPRM (TRIM), generating PDF documents, creating records in HPRM.

On Demand: Sharing and Document Collaboration with external parties

 

 

Does the following sound familiar?

You email out a PDF document. The client prints it, scans it and emails it back;

You need more information, so you do it again;  Nobody has visibility of the process internally, documents are everywhere; all this costs time and money!

During this video, we will be demonstrating how easy it is to improve customer service with document sharing.

Register now to see how to:

  • Manage and collate feedback on documents which can then be archived in a SharePoint Library and/or your Records Management platform;
  • Report on customer interaction with tasks, reminders and notifications via email and text messages;
  • View and sign contracts, exchanging NDA agreements, letters of engagement or collaborating on documents in a consortium scenario; and
  • Collaborate within your SharePoint environment with external users whilst maintaining your SharePoint security

K2 Launches New Process Automation Platform Including New Cloud Service

 

K2 recently announced the availability of its new low-code process automation platform – furthering innovation in the way organisations drive digital efficiencies. With a new managed cloud service, K2 Cloud, new on-premises version, K2 Five, and completely redesigned user interfaces and experiences, the platform helps businesses of all types around the globe rapidly deliver powerful process automation and realise business productivity gains.

Automating business processes across an enterprise is crucial to the success of companies in the era of digital transformation. However, many initiatives are impacted by a lack of sufficient resources and the use of inefficient systems to manage processes.

K2’s low-code process automation platform solves these problems by enabling organisations to automate in every area of the business, without the traditional level of dependency on highly skilled developers spending inordinate amounts of time on repetitive coding.

With intuitive and powerful tools, organisations can rapidly deliver mission-critical applications as well as fast-changing, lightweight departmental processes, all with a single platform.

“From inception, K2 has always been focused on making process automation easier as we recognised over 15 years ago that building these solutions and solving these problems was too hard and complex for many organisations. This left many organisations ignoring this initiative and subsequently putting their businesses at risk of becoming obsolete,” said Adriaan van Wyk, CEO of K2. “The same is still generally true, ordinarily solving these problems is still hard for many businesses, but the pressure to transform has multiplied. That’s what makes K2 even more necessary today than it already was years ago, so that every organisation can automate every business process on our platform and digitally transform their business.”

Process automation platforms have several interconnected components and features that define its usability and feasibility, hence why K2 built a comprehensive, end-to-end platform around eight core tenets that when all combined make it possible for any organisation to automate their processes with K2:

  • Workflows: Customers can use visual, intuitive process and rules designers on top of an engine that is built to deliver scalable workflows.
  • Forms: Visually design powerful user experiences using forms that connect to workflows and line-of-business data. Components are reusable to drive speed and scale as well as consistency.
  • Integration: Point-and-click integration with virtually any line-of-business system.
  • Analytics: Rich reports and visual analytics deliver the information needed to identify issues and drive optimisation.
  • Mobile: Responsive user experience that works on all major devices, whether on or offline.
  • Security and Governance: Comprehensive, role-based management tools that provide security and governance on all aspects of the platform.
  • Deployment: The platform is flexible and can be deployed in the cloud or on-premises.

Several existing K2 tools and features have been significantly updated with the release of the new platform, while completely new functionality has also been added. Some of these include:

  • New Workflow Designer: A re-envisioned approach to how workflow solutions are built with a designer that has been re-engineered from the ground up using modern HTML5 technologies. Designing workflows is accelerated rapidly with Smart Assist, which guides developers on logical steps in the workflow and surfaces relevant data throughout the design experience.
  • App Wizard: Empowers citizen developers to build and deploy process apps in just a few steps, without having to code or design anything. These apps can later be extended using more advanced tools.
  • Workspace: A completely redesigned K2 Workspace experience, which provides a single centralised location for all K2 tasks and process applications.

At launch, K2 Cloud and K2 Five will have feature parity. However, the company will rapidly iterate on K2 Cloud with feature and functionality shipments every six weeks in order to innovate rapidly for customers. New K2 Five versions will be released annually to bring already released cloud features to customers that are deployed on-premises or in hosted environments.

“To enable enterprise-level process automation that supports robust mission-critical applications as well as fast-changing, lightweight departmental processes, we developed a platform that provides businesses a unique ability to build simpler applications quickly and more complex applications and processes that scale an entire enterprise,” said Olaf Wagner, co-founder and senior vice president of engineering and product at K2. “Further, our new K2 Cloud platform, based on our more than two-years of cloud experience managing K2 Appit for SharePoint, will enable our customers to take advantage of innovative functionality that we have and will continue to bring to light along the lines of voice-enabled apps, artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things, bots, and much more.”

On-Demand: Managing Document Control and Lifecycle with Office 365

 

 

Nobody has visibility of the process internally, documents are everywhere; all this costs time and money!  Business processes are not always clear or adequately communicated to staff. Processes that require approval from multiple areas are often manual, paper-based and dependant on a user to action items in a timely manner.

During this video, we will be demonstrating how easy it is to improve employee experience with quality document control and lifecycle management.

Watch to see how to:

• Collaborate within your SharePoint environment with tasks, reminders and notifications via email and text messages

• Manage document compliance with rule based naming conventions

• Document workflows that require multi-touch approvals which are often manual and time consuming

• Auto generate documents based on controlled business data

• Eliminate the need for multi (SharePoint) content types

Document control Workflow is often more complex than you think. Learn how K2 BPM can support your complex business scenarios with ease.
