WEBCON BPS is a BPM platform for Microsoft SharePoint that enables IT departments and business process teams of large and mid-size companies to rapidly create and manage business applications without coding.
WEBCON BPS is a single platform to build workflows and forms by utilizing a user-friendly graphical designer studio and business rules engine. Supported by InstantChange™ technology, WEBCON BPS gives IT teams the freedom and flexibility in building, managing and implementing changes in ongoing processes.
We have a number of clients using Webcon BPS. Some of the solutions we have delivered are:-
An automated paperless process for a company that provides exhibition stands across the world and had a need to streamline the booking and management process whilst dealing with multi languages.
We have a Dominos pizza franchise owning business who have 100 stores across the UK, who needed a mobile application for on-boarding new employees and recording utilities meter readings, expenses and booking employee holiday.
We have also delivered 2 document management solutions for driving document control and utilising electronic signatures instead of printing and collecting wet signatures.
Webcon is easy to set up and use. It's very quick and simple from a user perspective to begin creating functional and diverse workflow, forms and business processes without writing a single line of code.
From a consulting perspective, it's great to be able to provide a single holistic platform that will integrate into my clients existing SharePoint implementation, and be able to deliver on full requirements including integrating into other line of business applications.
There is very little that I don't like about Webcon, which is why after doing extensive reviews and market research of the other competitor platforms in the market place I decided to partner with Webcon over the others.
I might have commented here a year ago that the dashboard landing page for processes was a little bland and basic, but now with the release of version 2019, that is certainly no longer the case. The interface is now extremely interactive and customisable for each individual user. There is artificial intelligence built in, and hosting Webcon processes within other online applications such as web sites is part of the new version capabilities.
We have been using SharePoint for some time, but we felt that the extensive features of a SharePoint-based BPM were a necessary improvement indeed. We decided to use WEBCON BPS because it complied with all our technological and business requirements. What is especially important for us, end users are happy with the system, and the adoption rate is high.
Integration with SharePoint. All our employees are used to SharePoint so it was much easier for us to teach them how to work with the new system.
It’s soooo freaking easy to learn. It took me a few hours to build a workflow myself.
InstantChange. This is how they started to call it recently, but it was there from the beginning and I loved it. I forgot to add a path to the workflow. Went to the Studio, added it, saved and refreshed the web page. And it was there. No need to start a new workflow or anything else. It just was there. And the same goes for form fields, actions, logics etc., etc., etc…
Add-ins. There are so many possible use cases for them. Checking the tasks in Outlook. That was the most interesting to me. Before, it was a nightmare searching through the SharePoint list where all the tasks were.
Flexibility. We didn’t have to implement a workflow from start to end in one shot. It was an ongoing process. You were able to test part of it and then go on. Add another part, test this new part and so on. And you could always go back to the first part and modify it without crashing the other already working parts.
And finally the mobile app. Especially useful for C-level managers approving the costs of the new development requests. Because how we were doing that previously it was really a nightmare.
The software isn’t that well known as its key competitors (e.g. Nintex and K2), so it might require a bit more efforts and time to convince less technically focused decision-makers to give it a try.
We are happy to have WEBCON on board and everyone loves to work with WEBCON BPS and the applications build on this.
This is not just a software, you can build simple and complex processes with this BPM-Plattform. If you start with WEBCON BPS, it is like home. No complicated GUI, the WEBCON BPS Designer gives mainly all settings, where you expect them. Setup and basic configuration is fine as well…
The End users are just happy with the new way of delivering process applications. Fast, flexible, easy to use, modern layout, multi Plattform capabilities...just great. And IT/ powerUser are happy as well, because they can deliver and have happy customers
currently there is nothing to dislike. If i have to say something here: No PowerShell-Support to controll Workflows or to create them.
And: Weekend is to long to go back working with WEBCON

We never saw a BPM solution which enabled us faster and more efficient to implement business process applications without any programming. Especially the integrated approach of bulding process and forms in one task is very powerful. Also the InstantChange (TM) technology, which allows us to directly change any process with active instances without any data loss or inconsistencies, is a unique feature of WEBCON BPS. We also evaluated Nintex, K2 and other vendors, but were absolutely convinced by WEBCON BPS.
The time to market for implementing new business processes is very short. Due to InstantChange (TM) Technology you can change any active process on the fly without data loss or inconsistency.
Processes which were implemented on the SharePoint-integrated installation of WEBCON BPS cannot be exported to the SharePoint-free edition and vice versa.
