Nintex unveiled Nintex Forms 2010 on the first day of the SharePoint Conference in Anaheim, California today. Nintex Forms is a web based designer that enables forms to be created within SharePoint quickly and easily. Forms can then be consumed on most common mobile devices from the internet, anywhere and anytime. Nintex Forms integrates seamlessly with Nintex Workflow to automate business processes and deliver rich SharePoint applications.
The launch of Nintex Forms 2010 concludes a multi-stage beta program involving a large user base of Nintex partners and customers around the globe who provided invaluable feedback and ensured Nintex Forms is both functional and versatile. Mike Fitzmaurice, vice president of product technology at Nintex, commented on the product vision, “Customers told us they needed a forms product that was easier to use and more accessible to business users, even those customers with existing forms tools for advanced development scenarios.” Fitzmaurice added, “We made Nintex Forms as easy to use as dragging design components onto a browser-based canvas, mirroring the experience our customers already have with Nintex Workflow.”
Nintex Forms offers the ability to design forms once, and make them available in multiple devices, plus the option to combine with Nintex Workflow. “This will help our customers automate business processes with mobile applications on SharePoint and has already excited our solution partners in the beta program who have created compelling proof-of-concept scenarios,” said Fitzmaurice.
Forms can be published to the internet, via the Nintex Live service, and accessed by anyone outside the corporate network with a single click and without the need for extra hardware, software or infrastructure configuration. Wayne Woolston, Nintex managing director, elaborated on this, “Nintex has made a considerable investment in our Azure cloud-based service, Nintex Live, and this enables forms to be published to the internet and open new practical opportunities for customers and partners to offer and access forms.”
In addition to its ease of use and the ability to publish forms to the internet, Nintex Forms includes a large number of features out of the box that help business users to create forms including predefined device layouts, custom buttons and rich HTML formatting.
Introductory promotional pricing is available for existing Nintex Workflow 2010 customers and those who purchase Nintex Forms 2010 together with Nintex Workflow 2010.
