Advantages of Power Apps

Microsoft Power Apps is a no-code/low-code solution that allows business users to build apps more easily without needing to know and write code. It makes it easier to create apps that can quickly solve a business problem, automate a business process, and much more – freeing IT teams to focus on more strategic initiatives.

Here are just a few benefits and advantages of Power Apps:

Saves Money

Power Apps is very cost effective, as it is low-code/no-code, and allows companies to quickly develop departmental business-level apps. All Microsoft 365 subscribers can access Power Apps from a license perspective, and it provides access to non-premium connectors that connect to most Microsoft online services. For access to premium connectors, there is a nominal monthly fee.

Easy to Use

Users don’t need to write code to quickly build and extend applications using drag-and-drop functionality and prebuilt templates. Power Apps enables app creation through its UI, which offers tools that can be used to design and create an app that runs in a browser, a mobile app, or a desktop app.

Faster App Creation

To get ahead, especially for important functions and processes, getting an app sooner than later is imperative to the business. Power Apps allow for the quick design, creation and launch of apps when they are needed, avoiding the time consuming task of having to write code.

Many Integration Options

Power Apps can easily integrate with Microsoft applications including Microsoft 365, Power BI, SharePoint, and Dynamics 365, as well as a wide variety of other third-party applications such as Salesforce, Dropbox and Adobe.

Simpler Automation

Since Power Apps can access Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow), it easily automates business processes and workflows such as document routing, approvals, notifications, and activities with repetitive tasks, etc., to increase production and efficiency.

Mobile Friendly

Not all apps are intended to only be used on a desktop or laptop. With today’s mobile workforce, and the importance of anytime, anywhere access, apps should not be rendered useless on a mobile device. With Power Apps user friendly UI and connectors, apps can more easily be designed as mobile responsive so they work just as well on the road as in the office.

AI Functionalities

Increasingly organizations are looking to add AI capabilities in their business applications to save time and money, become more efficient and productive, and garner greater opportunities in the market to be more competitive and earn more revenue. Powers Apps provides the ability to enable users to add intelligence to their applications using its AI Builder function without requiring a data scientist to build models.
