Imagine building high productivity apps tailored to your business with almost no previous coding expertise needed. Believe it or not, that reality does exist with Microsoft Power Apps. Power Apps includes an innovative set of tools to enable integration and workflow within the web and mobile interfaces.
Microsoft developed the low-code app development platform to help customers speed up application development and encourage non-developers to create their own applications and automations, supercharge everyone’s productivity.
Supercharging Your Business with Power Apps
Building apps may seem like a daunting task to those who do not speak various coding languages. Microsoft is out to change that. Power Apps help anyone, from the novice to the expert, build robust, professional-grade apps for their company.
The low-code application development platform enables your team to reap the plethora of benefits that accompany developing dynamic applications and expanding your outreach beyond the four walls of your office.
Below are just a few benefits your business may experience by leveraging the Power Apps platform.
Enhance Your Business Experience
Artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities and portal access are a few of the extra features within Power Apps; you can leverage to enhance your company’s experience and capabilities. Power Apps enables you to make AI intuitive and accessible to everyone in your organization, no matter their technical background.
AI can help you gain value and insight from all your data through processing and prediction.
Users can achieve external access for individuals outside their organization through Power Apps portals. Here, you will be able to engage with external customers and partners and build responsive websites. Portals can help integrate and customize data for each user inside and outside your organization.
Connect the Dots and Automate Processes
The combination of Power Apps and Power Automate can help guide your application’s logic design, where application development may get messy. Instead of writing original code, users can use the point-and-click flow designer to portray their workflow neatly.
This feature improves data consistency and keeps users on track no matter how many layers of information and automation. Power Apps can guide you and your company through business processes, start workflows and provide data validation rules.
Save Money, Increase Flow
Research shows that the average cost to design, develop, and deploy an application is 74 percent less using Power Apps and other Microsoft Power platforms.
The internal development effort, professional services fees, and vendor applications purchase costs are much lower for applications developed using these tools and connectors. The effort to maintain code and manage applications is about 38 percent less when using Power Apps and Automate together.
Keep in mind, the efficiency gains can vary by role and business. Still, remote and mobile workers benefit significantly from implementing these processes, improving efficiencies by about 15 percent.
Benefits That Go Further Than Money
Not all benefits can be quantified using dollar signs. One of the most underrated benefits of Power Apps is that it empowers its users. Empowerment increases employee satisfaction due to eliminating repetitive and annoying manual activities and gives employees a feeling of control over their work.
Happier employees mean increased efficiency and a lower turnover rate.
Not only are employees satisfied, but they are also able to make better and faster decisions. Development work completed with Power Apps enables more immediate information collection. This enhanced process supports better decision making based on data sets that are closer to real-time.
Working Together with the Experts
There are so many ways you can reap the benefits of Power Apps, whether you use it yourself or connect with a Microsoft partner. Companies that have used Power Apps to deploy new applications report reduced time-to-market, happier customers, and revenue protection.
