Simplifying application development with Microsoft Power Apps, the go-to development platform for businesses wanting to grow and better connect their users with their data and processes.
Part of the Microsoft Power Platform suite, Power Apps is a cloud-based application that helps businesses streamline operations, automate tasks and drive productivity. Power Apps enable manual, repetitive processes to be replaced with intuitive, easy-to-use, and visually appealing business and work-based applications.
Power Apps can be a way of rapidly deploying a new business challenge to your organisation’s users or can be used to modernise and simplify some of your most distributed processes into a single unified interface.
Application of Power Apps
Power Apps can be leveraged in a variety of ways to support and streamline business operations and improve productivity.
Create custom applications that are suited to your business needs. Whether that’s managing your inbound leads, keeping track of inventory, managing your customer relationships or simply streamlining your internal time sheet process.
Automate repetitive, manual tasks with custom applications saving your teams hours in manual data entry. Need a system to automatically approve your teams’ workflows? Why not develop an intuitive application, giving you back the time you need to focus on more strategic work.
Need something more flexible? Power Apps can be developed to work on multiple devices, such as smartphones and tablets, giving your teams the flexibility they need when working at customer sites or are on the go. More advanced features such as Barcoding, RFID tag reading, object detection and image/video can all be leveraged within a mobile application from within the Power Apps platform.
Power Apps can be seamlessly integrated with Microsoft products such as Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365 and Azure. Additionally, Power Apps can be connected to hundreds of data sources using its ever-growing library of over 500 connectors.
Getting started with Microsoft Power Apps does not need to break the bank, and you may already have access to Power Platform products and services via your existing licensing arrangements. Why not speak to one of our specialists who can help you understand the transformation Power Platform can make to your organisation and navigate the licensing puzzle.

Customer success stories
Struggling to reconfigure bays and beds in wards quickly enough due to a sharp rise in in-patients due to the pandemic, BCN were tasked to develop a Power App-based Bed Complement Manager, revolutionising the way the Trust now allocates beds and bays.
Our experienced Power Platform teams understand the ins-and-outs of the platform and know how to get the most out of it to suit the needs of the end-user. Power Apps support a variety of application types, our developers can deliver the following applications to meet you needs.
Applications come in lots of flavours, and Canvas Apps are highly creative where the user experience plays a major role in how your organisational users will engage in the process – making something that was complicated or difficult into a streamlined experience. Our User Experience designers make canvas apps sing with a branded experience second to none.
Business processes can sometimes be cumbersome, slow and difficult to follow. Using Power Apps, these can be simplified, modernised, trained out and deployed with custom steps and pathways required for your specific use case.
Organisation needs change as time passes and Power Apps are ultimately customisable so if you have an App that needs some new bells and whistles, these can be incorporated into your application lifecycle to develop, test and release seamlessly to your users.
Still using E-Mail for approvals? Chasing your team for the ‘signed copy’? Rekeying data into multiple business systems? Stop!!! Power Platform can help. Power Platform can automate and digitise the most challenging business processes, integrating with other business systems to remove wasted time, effort and errors.
Power Platform can reach into Azure for even more sophisticated functions and operations and so a simple user frontend can integrate into a highly sophisticated Azure Synapse analytics solution.
As with any application development, the way in which the applications are developed, tested, released, monitored and governed is critical to an organisation’s deployment. Environmental strategy can play a key role in application lifecycle management and Power Platform contains a suite of management tools supporting data loss prevention policies through to creating developer centres of excellence.
Within Power Apps and via Power Automate, integration with other platforms is seamless via pre-approved integration services. These can be governed and monitored to ensure data compliance with your organisation. If a preconfigured connection is not available, Power Platform enables custom API’s to be created, integrating with virtually any accessible data source.
Managing application lifecycles and application errors can be a time consuming activity and if the application hasn’t been documented appropriately, Power Apps can be tricky to unpick. At BCN we are able to offer Power Platform support to unpick and manage the ongoing health of your Power Platform environment, Solutions, Apps, Flows and Data.
