In an earlier post we mentioned our partner Nintex had some exciting developments up their sleeves, to be announced in the coming months. Sure enough, Nintex have now launched new versions of Nintex Mobile and Nintex Forms, helping companies to build much more sophisticated mobile apps and forms with custom branding and advanced data connectors. We’ve long been fans of Nintex, as have our clients, so we are really pleased to see their products improving even further.

These improved tools add a new layer of sophistication to the Nintex enterprise-grade workflow automation platform.

We are delighted to announce that Microsoft have recently published a Customer Story based on our work with Arup, the global design and engineering firm. We’re really pleased that Microsoft have recognised not only the hard work that went into this project, on both sides, but also the excellent solution and benefits that Arup have been able to realise.

Arup was founded in 1946 and offers engineering, design, planning, project management and consulting services for all aspects of the built environment.

Well, for those who are in the dark, BPOS was the previous incarnation of what we now call Office 365. It’s hard to believe that 5 years ago Office 365 hadn’t even been released. It wasn’t even ready for beta – that started in October 2010.

Fast forward a couple of years and Office 365 is quickly becoming the poster child for the new forward thinking Microsoft. Once billed as the ‘future of enterprise IT’, Office 365 is now very much a staple for many enterprises and as Microsoft said themselves, is the “fastest growing business” in the company’s history. With an increase of 150% in the number of SMBs adopting the productivity suite it’s hard to disagree. Continue reading >>

Nintex Online is a great way to expand on the out of the box options that SharePoint offers for both workflow and forms, and this is especially true in the Cloud where customisation options are very much limited. Continue reading >>
