Power Up Your Business With PowerApps & Flow!
Posted by John Van Metre
PowerApps are purpose-built apps that can be built specifically for your business.
Companies can start with one of the many predefined templates or build an app from scratch through a simple, drag-and-drop user interface. No coding required!
At Armanino, we are seeing companies adopt PowerApps to replace dozens of legacy apps. In particular, those that have little or no integration with core systems and are typically built in Word templates, Lotus Notes, SharePoint forms, InfoPath, Adobe forms, etc.
Just think―if you need to capture data in a form, perform record look-ups, snap pictures or scan barcodes, record GPS coordinates, get driving directions, capture a signature or route a document for approval all as part of a workflow, no problem. All the power of your mobile device can be leveraged to streamline your business processes with PowerApps.
It gets even better. Bring PowerApps to life by using Microsoft Flow, which enables you to trigger Dynamics applications (or any of the 200+ solutions that Flow natively connects with)
to automatically perform actions like updating records in your Dynamics solution or other database. With Flow, you can tie together end-to-end business processes that can span multiple applications, while sending email notifications or approval requests to all interested internal or external parties, and accelerate the speed of business.
Your employees can access these PowerApps from any mobile device (iOS, Android, other) or from a webpage front end (HTML5).
There are so many possibilities―and the experts at Armanino can help you navigate the way. We’ve got great programs to get you started deploying your first app! Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
