Simple and complex solutions with K2
K2 stood out for its ability to deliver on all the energy company’s needs. In the first six months, they developed 26 solutions and have now scaled to more than 40.
While some solutions—like pool vehicle booking and mobile device activation request—use simple forms to populate data fields through integrations with line-of-business (LOB) systems, others are more complex. Processes like training requisition and contractor onboarding require human interaction, so tasks such as approvals are now routed by email or via the K2 worklist on the company’s intranet. Even more complicated processes—like leave applications—require the management of persistent application data as no LOB system has been implemented to provide the company’s required functionality.
“One of the major benefits of using K2 rather than the built-in SharePoint workflows is that the tasks created will then be displayed in the K2 worklist on the homepage of our intranet giving our staff a unified view of all the tasks assigned to them,” a collaboration and content manager at the energy company said. “We have recently implemented a document management system using SharePoint and will definitely use K2 to automate the document review and approval process.”
