What is Microsoft PowerApps?

PowerApps is a tool that allows you to create custom apps, leveraging many of the features of the Office 365 and Microsoft platforms. The apps can be created and run on Android, iOS, Windows and with almost any internet browser, making them highly accessible to your team.

With the easy-to-use interface for using and creating an app, you are able to leverage the business applications you are already using and create better solutions to increase productivity.

PowerApps allow you to:

  • Build apps that simplify business processes
  • Integrate with a wide number of connectors already supported by the Power Platform

Make your apps widely available with user-specific interfaces and restrictions.

The Microsoft Power Platform works cohesively with Microsoft applications, which means there are many creative ways to use PowerApps with applications like Power Automate, Power BI, Business Central and Microsoft Teams.  For more information check out Microsoft PowerApps.
