Nintex Brings Advanced Workflow to Microsoft Office 365
Build and scale workflows in the cloud.
- By Christa Ayer
Organizations wanting to extend Microsoft Office 365 to let users create workflows and forms can now look to two new Ninex products: Nintex Workflow for Office 365 and Nintex Forms for Office 365. Nintex's software extends Microsoft SharePoint Online, letting users collaborate on processes in a cloud or hybrid environment.
Nintex Workflow for Office 365 lets users, developers, and IT professionals automate common business tasks, such as approval routing, employee onboarding, forms processing, and expense handling -- all in the cloud. Nintex Forms for Office 365, available in the next few weeks, is a powerful way to easily build and manage forms that are Web-aware, SharePoint-aware, mobile-aware, and can kick off workflows.
Both Nintex products are developed specifically for the Office 365 platform, and give users a familiar drag-and-drop way to build applications in a browser. Customers can create a range of business solutions and connect cloud services, such as Yammer, Twitter, SkyDrive, Bing, and a host of virtual machines.
Nintex Workflow for Office 365 is available immediately in the SharePoint Store; Nintex Forms for Office 365 will be available in the coming weeks.
