Have you ever thought of hiring a developer for a mobile application that can help you get certain jobs done faster? Think no more! Make your own mobile application using Microsoft PowerApps.
Designed to make app creation intuitive, cost-effective and faster than any other offering in the market, Microsoft PowerApps is an incredibly promising tool for businesses of all sizes.
PowerApps has the ability to engage customers, optimize business operations, transform product delivery and make it easier for employees to work smarter and more efficiently.
Microsoft’s PowerApps is designed to be used on mobile devices. It doesn’t matter whether you use an Android, an Apple device, or a Windows phone or tablet. You can still utilize an app designed with PowerApps. After all, PowerApps is meant to be deployed on mobile devices first.
When people think of apps, the first image that comes to mind is of developers, hunched over their desks, frantically typing lines of code into a computer. PowerApps aims to erase that image. PowerApps has been designed to be very user-friendly, and it’s a simple enough program for anyone to launch successful apps.
You don’t need to know a single bit of code in order to create an app in the PowerApps interface. The only skill necessary is the ability to drag and drop.
Moreover, PowerApps enables users to either build their first app in just a few clicks, or use existing templates for common business scenarios (including case management, opportunity tracking, contact management, and more.)
If you were outsourcing your app development before, PowerApps allows you to bring that in-house, which is a move that will save your organization money.
What if you’ve already got an in-house app development team? You’ll no longer need to find developers who specialize in particular platforms, as PowerApps works on the Big Three. And your current staff can focus on ensuring that line-of-business users have a seamless app experience.
One of the best parts of PowerApps is that it’s a Microsoft solution, which means it works with other Microsoft solutions.
The integration with complementary apps like Flow is very impressive. Can you think of times when having more information at your fingertips would have helped a sale or another situation? Having secure and up to date information about the business can sometimes be the difference between success and missing out.
At its core, PowerApps is a platform that allows developers to customize apps. These apps are being used for both customer-facing and in-house tasks.
Here’s an example to illustrate. Mohamed creates an app through PowerApps that helps salespeople in the field provide estimates on the spot with customer data. He then shares it with the sales team by sending the link to everyone through Outlook.
Microsoft has also integrated PowerApps into Dynamics 365. Dynamics 365 is the cloud-bundled version of its CRM and ERP solutions. The benefit of the PowerApps integration into Dynamics 365 is that users can customize and share apps that enable them to do their jobs better.
Here’s another example. Abdullah is on the sales team. He needs access to data that the customer service representatives have. Thanks to PowerApps, Abdullah can connect to information stored in Dynamics 365. The next time he has to meet with a prospect, all he needs to do is open the app and the requisite data is at his fingertips. Abdullah is making more sales than before his firm deployed Dynamics 365. Because creating apps is so fast and simple, Abdullah can get back to his work quickly.
There’s a reason so many companies are interested in what PowerApps can do for them. What can it do for you? Sign in to PowerApps and find that out for yourself.
