The Benefits of Using Power Platform

Every business today is looking to achieve more. But they know they can’t do it alone. That’s why so many organisations are turning to innovative software solutions that can help them edge closer towards their goals. There’s just one problem: it’s not always easy to find the perfect tool. 

Sometimes, it can feel like you’re paying a huge subscription fee for a comprehensive solution, even though you only need one small part of the overall functionality. Sometimes a tool can get you 75% of the way there, but falls short of being able to do it all. At other times, there’s simply nothing on the market that even comes close to doing what you need it to. So here’s a new idea to consider…

Why not build what you need from scratch? 

It may sound far-fetched. Especially if you’re not a tech business. But it’s easier than you think to create your own tools to boost efficiency and productivity when you use Microsoft Power Platform. This is an app development tool that connects seamlessly with your existing Microsoft 365 environment.

Power Platform enables users to…

1. Participate

No one knows what a user needs better than the user themselves. Power Platform turns every single one of your employees into developers – even if they have zero coding experience. This enables them to create exactly what they need to work smarter. Low-code solutions are considered to be one of the ‘best investments for IT departments in 2023’, providing everyone with a chance to participate. 

2. Automate

Simple yet time-consuming tasks are one of the greatest obstacles standing in the way of productivity today. Power Platform makes it quick and easy to develop tools that can automate many mundane day-to-day tasks. This frees up your valuable resources to spend more time connecting with customers, generating new ideas, and carrying out those all-important tasks requiring the human touch. 

3. Analyse

Businesses today have access to more data than ever before. Unfortunately, many just don’t have the tools they need to analyse that data, identify patterns, and action that understanding to develop more efficient workplace processes. That’s where Power Platform comes in. It enables teams to build solutions that collate their data – from multiple sources and touchpoints – to generate insight. 

4. Customise

While many businesses are trying to mould themselves around the capabilities of their off-the-shelf software, Power Platform turns that around. It’s about creating bespoke, customised solutions that do exactly what each organisation needs, when it needs it. So whether you’re looking to automate tasks, manage your data, boost communication, or anything else, you can with Power Platform. 

And these are just a few of the benefits. When used in the best possible way, Power Platform has the ability to help organisations save money and accelerate innovation. It can enable you to eradicate roadblocks and scale with ease, while remaining as secure as possible in the digital space.
