Key plug-in allows end-users to easily use SharePoint platform to manage business processes

Ottawa, Ontario – 12 May 2008 – Macadamian Technologies, the software creation and usability partner trusted by many of the world’s most successful software, telecommunications, and health science companies, today announced they have completed a project to help Formark® create their Process-Driven Collaboration software product for the Microsoft SharePoint platform.

Formark’s Process-Driven Collaboration product is a powerful addition to SharePoint 2007 that helps distributed business teams collaborate more effectively. Its collaborative workflow functionality is a major step forward over traditional workflow tools.

Macadamian extended the functionality of the SharePoint platform by developing a plug-in that lets developers customize and deploy plug-ins for Formark’s Process-Driven Collaboration application -without requiring the developer to know the intricacies of SharePoint.

“SharePoint is quickly gaining traction and is poised to become one of the leading platforms for enterprise collaboration, yet few development partners have experience with SharePoint. Macadamian’s know-how with SharePoint, and their past experience helping other ISVs create products that connect with SharePoint, helped us get to market sooner,” said David Forbes, President, Formark Ltd (www.formark.com).

“Formark’s product is very compelling, and we were happy to be a part of its creation. Top-down team organization will become increasingly rare, and teams spread across time zones and continents that need to collaborate on a daily basis are becoming more commonplace. By combining the power of SharePoint and the flexibility of Formark’s Process-Driven Collaboration, teams will have the tools they need to work together effectively,” said Frédéric Boulanger, President, Macadamian Technologies.

Formark at the Interdoc SharePoint Summit

Ottawa, Ontario – February 13, 2008 – Formark® Ltd. will be presenting ‘Process-Driven Collaboration – SharePoint BPM’ at the Interdoc SharePoint Summit 2008 which is the largest event in North America that targets the technologies and business solutions around Microsoft SharePoint Server. The event will be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on April 8-9, 2008.

Process Driven Collaboration is an innovative module for SharePoint 2007 that provides business process management (BPM) for teams.

Traditional business process management solutions are primarily designed for the manager. Individual tasks are released one at a time with no shared team context, content or process. In team-based business processes, this leads to members feeling cut-off from one another, making effective collaboration nearly impossible and leading to confusion, frustration, wasted effort and lost opportunities.

Process-Driven Collaboration is specifically designed for team-based business processes. It provides: visual process presentation for the entire team; one place for team members to go for all project content; and flexible, accountable, team collaboration. Process-Driven Collaboration combines the best of team collaboration and BPM features such as process modeling and process repository, workflow, process flexibility and continuous improvement. As a result team productivity increases, creativity and innovation is enhanced, decision making improves and process cost and time are cut. Process-Driven Collaboration can be integrated with other ECM platforms such as Livelink or Documentum, for enhanced records management. Process-Driven Collaboration is an ideal solution for team-based business processes such as new product development, RFP responses, quality management, general project management, preparation of tender documents, major procurement, grant management, loan reviews, and major sales proposals.
