By 14th October 2020 December 10th, 2020 No Comments

You use a mountain of software applications in your workplace, have you ever found yourself wondering if it is really needed, and is there an app that could be used instead? 

This is where Power Apps can help. Power Apps is an offering from Microsoft and is part of the Office 365 suite of tools and allows you to create custom apps. The best part is that it is designed to be used by non-technical users, bringing the power of process automation to all. 

You can add integrations to other applications meaning if you have an existing process that uses SharePoint Online, Dynamic 365 and Excel then by using Power Apps you can bring all of the information together in a single app.  

If you aren’t already utilising Power Apps here are 6 reasons why you should be. 

1 – Speed 

With an intuitive drag and drop interface Power Apps gives you the ability to create useful apps, quickly. 

2 – Office 365 integration 

Make the most of your Office 365 capabilities, Power Apps integrates fully and allows you to access data on SharePoint or any other Office 365 apps your business uses. 

3 – Mobile ready 

Power Apps allow you to ensure the new app you are building is mobile friendly and can be used easily on mobile phones or out on the field. 

4 – Standard connectors 

Knowing how to connect your data can cause one of the biggest headaches. This isn’t a problem as with Power Apps connectors it is easy to connect to many data storage services, making accessing data from Microsoft applications or from cloud services easy. 

5 – Easy app creation 

You can create your own app by using the intuitive drag and drop interface, making it perfect for non-technical users.   

6 – Microsoft Flow
