Although customized working processes are included in Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013 Server, it may only partly satisfy your needs, as you may still need to project and design working processes which are specific for your company's business. The complexity level of business processes depends on your business process requirements. Developers can organize business processes run by source users or automatically in response to events such as creating or editing list elements. Designed and implemented custom working processes can be used in addition to working processes described before or instead of them.
There are two ways of creating working processes for Office SharePoint Server 2007, 2010 or 2013: 1. Professional software developers can create working processes with the help of Visual Studio 2008/2010 Extensions for Windows Workflow Foundation. These working processes contain user code and operations. After professional developer creates custom working processes, server administrator will be able to deploy them in several sources;
2. Web designers can create working processes which do not contain a code for use in a certain list or library with the help of web design software such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007. These working processes are created from the list of available working process operations (nearly 30 standard blocks are available for WorkFlow creating), and web designers creating working processes can deploy working processes directly to the list or library where they will be used;
The first way is aimed for analysts, advanced users, etc.; The second way is aimed for developers.Why Do I Need Virto Workflow Activities Kit
