Yesterday Velocity, in collaboration with K2, hosted an exclusive event on the theme of Digital Transformation at the Soho Hotel in London. The afternoon was split into a series of talks by Velocity’s founder and CEO, Arno van Rooyen, K2’s VP EMEA, Andrew Murphy, and special guest Clarence Dixon, Global Head of Loan Services at CBRE, the world’s leading real estate company.
Velocity, a leading K2 partner, has launched benchQA for automated K2 testing specifically designed and developed for the K2 platform. benchQA’s easy-to-use interface allows test analysis to rapidly assemble test scripts and cases using its intuitive designer. It helps business analysts and K2 developers to reduce development time, improve developer performance and increase the overall accuracy and stability of any K2 project.
Velocity was selected to take part in the K2 Appit beta programme and is one of the first partners in the UK to build and evaluate the K2 workflow cloud offering for SharePoint. Cloud-based Forms and Workflow capabilities enable companies to free up valuable resources. These resources can be spent on solving business problems rather than maintaining software and servers.
Velocity started K2 blackpearl process and SmartForms development for the Underwriting and Policy Lifecycle Management application for a major insurance company. The basis for the requirement is the outputs from the discovery and solution modelling workshops that was held earlier.
A major defence organisation approached Velocity IT and K2 for a digital online forms solution steered by K2 blackpearl workflow. This solution was to replace their current employee suggestion system, which was paper based. The objective of the project was to turn the system into one that could be accessed by all members of the armed forces via the Internet. And, they wanted everything complete within an ambitious 90-day timeframe.
Velocity and K2 had a productive and enthusing meeting to discuss the prospect of the K2 platform being further exploited by one of the UK’s major defence companies.
At this present time, we have already used K2 blackpearl to deliver three phases of the defence employee suggestion system. Today we discussed the idea for using K2 SmartForms to extend this platform.
