  • It helped to create flexibility in our Process Automation. It has become easier than ever to modify the existing processes (implemented in K2 BlackPearl) when the need arises.
  • We were able to create web forms efficiently using K2 SmartForms which is powered by k2 BlackPearl. It's an exceptional tool to create web forms without writing a single line of code.
  • The parallel approval mechanism supported by K2 BlackPearl was really helpful with projects as we want to send those work items to groups of users rather than a single individual.

Currently our K2 implementation is being used across all of our corporate users base. This consists of over 5000 users in multiple locations. We are utilizing a number of K2 forms. We are mainly using K2 for large complex routing of forms. These forms require numerous approvals and have a number of branching logic points.

K2 Blackpearl is being used in multiple segments of our organization and is used in various types of engagement models and architectures. Its use is two-fold - in one scenario, K2 Blackpearl is leveraged through its use of SmartObjects to orchestrate manual-centric workflows for integrating business segments with custom in-house host systems for interoperability. In another scenario, K2 Blackpearl SmartForms are used to implement a smaller, isolated work process for a specific business segment/need leveraging SmartBox.

K2 BlackPearl provides a robust enterprise level workflow platform and we are using K2 BlackPearl to automate business processes within the organization. Some of the business processes are small and specific to group or department (such as vacation approval) but some processes involve users from multiple departments and involve field workers. Examples include: adding a new meter equipment in field and a spot bonus approval process to recognize employees.

We are currently working on several K2 applications. One is a SharePoint site provisioning tool that users can go to, to request a new SharePoint site. Based on how they answer questions, a site will be created in either SharePoint Online or On-Prem. We are also working on several K2 applications for our PMO, and Security Teams to help them redefine their business processes.

We have used K2 BlackPearl as the core workflow engine for managing our new matter intake process. All new legal matters that come into the firm are entered into a complex form we built that is then routed using complex K2 workflows. We have a number of different workflows depending on the type of matter. For example, is it a new client and a new matter or a new matter for an existing client? All of the data for these new matters is stored in SharePoint and we use the SharePoint web parts to give people visibility into the status of the new matter workflow. It is being used across the entire firm and is a mission critical system.

I used K2 in a previous position as an alternative to InfoPath forms, forms creation and workflow based on business processes. The client was heavy in form creation and forms required to follow a complex set of processes for example a parallel review, branching for decision points and approval etc. K2 was both efficient in creating the forms using "SmartForms" and the workflows were both easy to create and provided great analytical reporting that was an added benefit to our clients.

K2 is used by a couple of departments within our organization. We have been using K2's technology to replace workaround systems developed by our business technology teams. K2 fits the need by providing business technologists the ability to quickly create process applications that scale to department level and beyond.

K2 was being deployed to support processes throughout the company. Initial efforts were focused on integration with SharePoint and SAP, but later integrations to Salesforce were planned.

We identified candidate processes for K2 blackpearl based on their maturity, stability, frequency, and impact on Company operations, giving priority to processes that were relatively mature and stable, that were used often, and that had the potential for greatest benefit if they were automated with K2 blackpearl.

We ended up working first on processes related to sales forecasting and factory capacity planning.

We use K2 to rapidly develop software solutions to automate our business process across the organization. These solutions are developed for specific teams as well as enterprise wide. We are able to develop solutions in a much more rapid time frame then if they were written in .Net from scratch. The built in workflow engine alone saves tons of development time. This engine can also be incorporated into applications written in house that had a basic workflow engine in it. This quickly gave us an in depth workflow engine quickly.

The initial roll out started with IT department and later on upon its successful implementation, we rolled it out to other departments. We used it to create workflows which integrates with SharePoint 2010 and SQL reporting services.

We currently use K2 Blackpearl to build and manage workflows for the following business processes: Invoice Routing, Processing, and Approval and New Business Intake. It is used by our Finance and Conflicts departments currently. It helps us to streamline the approval process through multiple levels of approvers.

K2 blackpearl was the standard tool used by ITT Exelis for any automation of workflow type projects. Our largest project utilizing K2 was for an IT Exception Request system. This system facilitated workflow automation for doing things like requesting a firewall modifications, obtaining a mobile device that had not been approved, and numerous other types of requests that were "exceptions" to our IT standards.

We use K2 blackpearl with our clients based on their needs. At times clients may already have an instance of K2 blackpearl that we extend, while in other situations we may recommend K2 blackpearl based on specific criteria. Our organization does not use K2 blackpearl directly. Business problems we have addressed with our clients include information routing, system integration, and workflow customization.
