Power Apps at a glance
Your processes are based on an interaction of various systems and data sources; but who keeps track of things? Are your work processes done manually, are they time-consuming and error-prone? Do you lack the time to concentrate on more important processes? Microsoft Power Apps offer numerous features and possibilities for optimizing your business solution. Say goodbye to needless manual data entry, to time-consuming logs, long release loops, and inflexible data access.
Cloud and on-premises
Data connections to more than 275 cloud services, databases, interfaces, and on-premises services can be used in the app with one click. Additional connections to your own services are also possible.
Develop powerful apps for browser, tablet, and smartphone with Microsoft Power Apps.
Design your individual apps
The Power application is created in an intuitive online editor. The application’s design can be defined using a variety of controls. You can test the application at any time during the development using the integrated preview.
Power Apps can be designed freely. Microsoft also supplies some templates that can serve as inspiration or can be used as fully functional, standalone apps.
The elements created can be imported into other Power Apps and can be reused in the application.
No programming skills required
Ready-made building blocks like the evaluation of invoices or text recognition can be included into the Power App through the AI Builder. A developer can of course still expand the app.
Integration into Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365
Power Apps can be fully integrated into Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Dynamics 365, e. g. as Outlook add-in, as entry masks for Microsoft SharePoint and Teams, or embedded in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales.
Connections and data sources: interconnect all data and use it instantly
You can connect numerous apps in Power Apps. Simultaneously, you can use your data from various data sources and expand it. This way, your business always accesses a central, concentrated knowledge database.
Individual approaches with Power Apps: Can you see yourself in the examples?
Can you see yourself in one or more of the following case studies? Then it is high time for you to accept the challenge and to transfer to Power Apps!
Do your warehouse employees print their packing list in a central place, pick according to the list, make handwritten notes to missing pieces or variants and do they need to transfer these notes back to the ERP system manually?
Do you collect all your colleagues’ digital notes from Word, OneNote, or simple text files after a meeting, add images to them from other data sources and are you desperately looking for a way to make the log created by you available to the other participants? Do you also need to organize a follow-up meeting and to assign the tasks clearly to the others? Do not lose track!
Does this seem familiar? Your employees send emails with requests for material or appropriation to the purchase department. The purchase department must then identify the superior of the applicant who will have to approve the requests. The superior happens to be on vacation, though. How can a correct order be generated in the ERP system when there are still questions about unclear item descriptions that currently cannot be answered?
Would you like to give your employees access to the data in your system, anywhere and at any time? Is this impossible because your system does not have a web application or an app?
Data from almost any data source can be read and transferred into another data source without leaving the app, thanks to its versatile connectivity.
Existing systems often require little to no adaptation for a connection to Power Apps.
Forms and entry fields are used to unify the entered data for all users of the app.
Through the connection of various systems, processes can be visualized fully or partly automated in the background with Microsoft Power Automate.
The simple development interface with pre-fabricated controls makes for short development times when compared to conventional app development. Due to the large number of connectors to other systems, development requires little effort.
Power Apps can be run on smartphones with Android or iOS or via an app. On all other devices, the app is run through a web-based interface.
The app can even be used to read and edit the data without connecting to a network.
