Power Apps for Local Authorities

Quick Solutions To Everyday Problems

 

All organisations face tasks that require data entry or data capture that are manual and repetitive, which can lead to innacuracies and potentially delays in obtaining results. Do you often set about a task and think “there must be an easier way to do this”…

It’s time to think outside the box and beyond the traditional set of prepackaged MS Dynamics 365 applications. We will work with you to turn your business knowledge into something brilliant, building custom Microsoft Dataverse driven applications tailored to your data and processes.

The process is simple:

  • Model your business data
  • Define your business processes
  • We’ll build the App

So what is a Power App?

Power Apps provide a visual interface where you can collect data using forms or data entry screens, from simple data collection forms to complex business process automation.

Why use an App?

Power Apps connect to your M365 environment. So all your App data and wider organisational data will sit within your own tenancy or Dataverse, which means it’s accessible to you using any of your MS applications or platforms. Power Apps can connect to your databases, spreadsheets, and online services, allowing you to access and manipulate data from multiple places in one app.

Why else should you use a Power App for a task?

  • Speed – allows you to view and manipulate your data quickly and efficiently
  • Protects your data with Microsoft security features
  • Avoids paperwork and spreadsheets!
  • Avoids duplication and error that can come with manual input data
  • Collaborative – multiple users can interact with the data
  • Mobile-Friendly

Build it yourself…… or let us do it for you!

  • While Power Apps are low-code, meaning they can technically be built by anybody, we realise that staff working within Education are hugely time pressured. And low-code doesn’t mean no-code! We think you can create a more functional app if you have some coding expertise, and our team have that!
  • Fast turnaround – generally app development is in days or weeks not months!
  • Our experts dedicated to your project – We have the time and resources to build your app where perhaps you may not.
