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.

By making it easy for Livelink solutions to engage external user communities, exchange content and execute business processes, Formark makes Livelink the right answer for a much broader set of problems.
