SYSPRO, a global software manufacturer, wanted to offer customers a workflow solution that would integrate with its enterprise resource planning software and other applications. However, it could take years to write code for the product, and SYSPRO needed a solution flexible enough for customers with diverse business processes. To speed development and facilitate custom workflows, SYSPRO implemented its solution with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4. The company used new graphical design tools to develop a workflow solution based on Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows Communication Foundation. The Microsoft tools simplify development and reduce the need to write code. The solution also improves team collaboration. As a result, SYSPRO delivered its new product in six months instead of three years.
