Mutual SharePoint focus allows leading workflow and physical records management products to be combined for best-of-breed enterprise information management solutions.

FileTrail and Nintex today announce that they have entered into a partnership to allow for comprehensive solutions for commercial and public sector clients to automate and streamline their SharePoint business processes and ensure the proper management and tracking of critical business information.

“FileTrail’s technology surfaces any physical records via custom SharePoint content types, and Nintex Workflow will route any SharePoint content through processes from the simple to the very, very elaborate.” said Mike Fitzmaurice, vice president of product technology at Nintex, “our mutual commitment to the SharePoint platform made aligning our technologies easy.” Nintex’s Workflow 2010 adds a drag-and-drop workflow designer, a toolbox of over 100 workflow activities, and advanced workflow management features to the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 platform. Business users and IT professionals alike are empowered to quickly and easily create, deploy, manage and understand workflow processes; from simple leave approval requests, to complex integration across external applications and data sources. Recognizing that that many of these processes still rely on physical files as a source of information, FileTrail for SharePoint supports elaborate, metadata-rich entries into SharePoint libraries that map directly to physical corporate assets, including full integration with commercial records centers. As a result, all of the rich metadata FileTrail exposes in SharePoint is accessible to workflows designed in Nintex Workflow.

This relationship brings together two companies that have committed to the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 content management platform and serves as the preferred solution for companies that have more enterprise-class and regulated processes than are natively enabled through the SharePoint platform. Mutual partners are expected to put forth customer solutions that combine the strengths of both products, and mutual customers are expected to reap very tangible from the combination of these two products.

“Our clients have long relied on FileTrail to help them better manage their information assets, but they’ve also told us they want to manage their information processes better. They need to automate to reduce costs, maintain competitive advantage, and comply with regulations. Our partnership with Nintex gives them unmatched business process automation to accomplish those objectives while still leveraging the FileTrail platform for records management and item tracking that they’ve relied on for years.” said Jim Petty, Vice President of FileTrail.
