REDMOND, Washington — Workflow and BPM software maker K2 today unveiled its new SmartForms technology and announced a beta program that will be available soon for K2 customers and partners.

SmartForms offers a browser-based designer that allows users to build electronic forms that can then be used to capture information on web pages, web applications and in SharePoint solutions. SmartForms can be workflow-enabled when combined with K2's award-winning workflow server. 

“With this technology, users will be able to leverage a drag-and-drop environment to build electronic forms faster than ever before,” said K2’s CEO Adriaan van Wyk. “For example, a ‘field,’ like ‘address,’ can simply be clicked and dragged from a sidebar onto the form being built.”

K2 SmartForms can pull and push information from line-of-business systems — SharePoint, CRM, SAP and others — and they can be used in the cloud with applications like Office 365 and Salesforce.com. The built-in K2 SmartObject technology allows true reusability of form components across multiple forms, in multiple applications.

“Combine our new SmartForms capability with the other pillars of the K2 platform — workflow, line-of-business integration and reporting — and we’ve really put forward a powerful and unique product that fosters exponential efficiency for our customers,” Van Wyk said. “It has evolved into a BPM platform that is unlike anything else in the market.”

K2 blackpearl and K2 blackpoint software are used by companies all over the world for automating enterprise business processes, building SharePoint workflow solutions, and integrating Microsoft solutions into SAP and other line-of-business systems.
