In an increasingly digital world, companies must become ever more agile and faster in order to meet market requirements. This is where low-code platforms like Microsoft Power Apps come into play, which make it possible to create individual business applications without much programming effort. In this blog post, we're going to take a closer look at Microsoft Power Apps and how they help companies build custom apps in no time.

How do you create Power Apps?

Microsoft Power Apps is one Cloud-based platform that allows users to build and deploy custom business applications without any coding knowledge. The platform offers a variety of features, including templates, drag-and-drop design, and connections to various data sources. With Power Apps, users can combine data from different sources to create applications that run on different devices such as desktop, tablet, and mobile.

Where are Power Apps used?

There are no limits for Power Apps in the company, they can be used in all areas of the company. This can be, for example, apps for technical field service, lean solutions for mobile timekeeping, time-saving workflows for forms of all kinds, the reservation of office workplaces or the return of devices in service.

How does the Power Apps platform help companies accelerate business processes?

Microsoft Power Apps helps companies quickly deploy custom apps by providing an intuitive drag-and-drop app design interface. This allows users to quickly and easily create applications tailored to their specific needs.

How much do Power Apps cost?

Power Apps are already included in many Office license models 365 and Business Central included. Companies can start with it at no additional cost. In the case of complex scenarios, however, the license model must be checked carefully, for example when Power Apps write to the ERP system. The KUMAVISION team will be happy to advise you on this.

What does a typical power app from KUMAVISION look like?

A central requirement of many companies is that the software can be used both on the smartphone in the field and on the desktop in the office. This is also the case with KUMAVISION customer Eisbär, who specializes in the restoration of water damage in buildings and objects of all kinds. By using Power Apps, Eisbär can now map the entire process chain in building drying transparently and create standardized and automated workflows in the office and in the field. The new Power App has driven digitization at Eisbär: all functions for building drying are now bundled in one app, making media breaks and paper forms a thing of the past. The interaction of Power Apps with Dynamics 365 Business Central, SharePoint, Teams and Outlook creates standardized and automated workflows.

What concrete advantages do Power Apps bring for companies like Eisbär?

  • Transparency: The entire claims process is controlled transparently, which leads to better communication and cooperation between employees.
  • Fast order taking: Power Apps make it quick and easy to capture orders placed over the phone.
  • Automation: Power Apps automate many processes and workflows, saving time and resources and reducing errors.
  • Mobile solution: Power Apps can be used on smartphones, allowing on-site employees to collect and share information quickly and easily.
  • Offline capability: Power Apps can also be used without a continuous Internet connection, which is an advantage in areas with poor network coverage.
  • Integrability: Power Apps can be easily integrated into other Microsoft products such as SharePoint, Dynamics 365 and integrate Office.

How do Power Apps work in conjunction with other applications?

Power Apps make it possible to experience the globally unique concept of the Microsoft technology platform. With Power Apps I can do almost all Office 365-Integrate applications and automate workflows - from sending e-mails and scheduling appointments with Outlook to posting in teams. In addition, data can also be Dynamics 365 - i.e. ERP and CRM - are exchanged. Even the use of Microsoft Azure Services such as IoT or AI is possible without any problems.
