Google announced that it’s adding to its Drive platform with new workflow integration services from DocuSign, K2 and Nintex, according to reports.
“As more and more companies migrate their content to the cloud, it’s critical that they reimagine their workflows to follow similar principles: to help people stay focused, stay informed and to keep distractions at bay,” the company said in a blog post. “This means that your workflows need to be easy to set up and deploy, but flexible enough to meet your enterprise’s unique needs. And, as a bonus, we think they should also be smart enough to identify patterns and take care of them for you.”
The DocuSign integration will allow users to prepare, store and even sign documents directly in Google Drive, and also allow for actions like payments, account activation and billing after an agreement between two parties has been finalized.
The K2 integration has more to do with machine learning. It will let users train models on a workflow, and then perform actions like determining whether to automatically approve or deny loans, for example, with all of the pertinent information for the request stored in a Google Sheet. It will also allow for a user to make documents easier to find in Drive.
“K2 is committed to simplifying the way in which our customers connect and manage their information, whether it resides on-premise or in the cloud,” said K2 Vice President of Global Technology Alliances Eyal Inbar. “By integrating with Google Drive, we are able to put the next-generation of content management services in the hands of our customers so they can build and implement powerful workflows into their applications.”
For Nintex, the focus is on HR contract management lifecycles, sales and legal use cases. Basically, it will help by adding automation to the management of contracts.
