How Power Apps are Changing Application Creation and Management within Organisations

Posted 19th January 2022

If you are a business owner or a person with responsibility for internal processes and data management within an organisation, you will constantly be looking at ways in which you can improve workflows and enhance productivity across all departments. Power Apps makes it much easier to drive digital change within a business, transforming the way we see internal workflow processes, simplifying app creation and making it much easier to manage different teams and data without the need for technical skills and coding experience.

Power Apps has completely changed the way businesses can function. It is part of Power Platform, enabling business users to create and automate applications aimed at improving processes within a business. There is no need for technical knowledge of coding, making it an enticing prospect for many business owners seeking an enhancement of processes and an increase in efficiency and performance, without it costing too much time and money.

What are the benefits of Power Apps?

Many modern businesses wish to resolve problems and find solutions for internal processes and workflow issues without going to a third-party for help. If you can build an app for desktop or mobile that is perfectly suited to your specific business needs, addresses common problems in data collection and helps to transform the way a business functions, you will see a significant improvement company-wide.

Fast creation of apps

Power Apps significantly speeds up the entire process of app creation for your business. There are three separate ways that users can build apps within the platform, using an existing SharePoint Online list or other data source, creating the app from a blank canvas, or using existing templates that can be found within the Power Apps designer section. It is quick and effective.

A simple process with low-code and no-code options

The interface that allows users to log into Power Apps is simple and straightforward. App development can be easy if it is a simple, standalone app, but when you need it to interact with other systems it can then become a bit more complicated, and this is where the assistance of an expert team such as ours can come in incredibly helpful. We help you implement the right solution for your specific business needs, utilising data from the app to do whatever you need it to do.

Third-party integrations

With Power Apps you can connect to a variety of data sources from within the Microsoft Suite or from third-party sources. What this means is that you have a wide and varied choice of app deployments, making it easier to find the correct solution for your business and the specific workflow processes that you are attempting to improve.

Automate certain processes

Power Apps can access Power Automate, promoting the automation of several processes including approvals, notifications, documents and more. It enables business users and developers to add the functionality of automation within app deployment, tailored to suit the behaviour of the users and the data changes required.

Simple licensing

With Power Platform there is a much lower cost of app ownership, due to the fact that there is no need for multiple licenses, it all comes under the license that subscribers to Microsoft 365 have. You can pay more to have access to a wider range of connectors than the basic subscription though, but even with this the app development cost is much lower than you would expect to pay elsewhere.

Easy deployment across platforms

You can quickly and easily design and deploy apps for cross-platform purposes. This is a much simpler process than it would be traditionally, negating the need for interaction with different browsers and platforms to allow rollout of your app. Power Apps also makes it incredibly easy to use apps on a traditional desktop browser, on a tablet, or mobile device.
