Cognito Forms

I would definitely recommend Cognito Forms to any colleague or business. I think it has the excellent capability of tracking things, simplifying a process, having a set process. Have everyone on board using the same forms or ways of transmitting information to one another. We will continue to use and find additional ways to utilized Cognito Forms.

PowerApps

PowerApps does a great job of bridging the gap for mobile form entry where needed. We don't have a ton of mobile use cases, but that's because we haven't had a very active online tool kit until the deployment of O365. With most tools behind a firewall, any opportunity to work in business applications has been through VPN and that usually requires a PC/Mac. Now that we're able to access the system through a credentialed entry point in O365, we have the opportunity to think about what our mobile environment could look like. That's where PowerApps comes into our portfolio.

Cons

Cognito Forms

  • I am happy with Cognito Forms. I have not found any issues.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

PowerApps

  • I feel that although it is possible to adapt the tablet view to desktop it can be cumbersome and the screen ratio is not right. There should be an option for making a desktop or browser based application specifically; or at least more screen ratio choices.
  • "PowerApps Desktop" is only available via windows store; for some enterprise users(specifically LTSB users) that makes it unavailable as windows store cannot be used with this version of Windows. A stand alone download or an explanation in the documentation would be nice to have.
  • I have spent a ton of time changing the formating over to the standard that I am using throughout the application on each data card or places where copy paste isn't an option. A format painter or a place to provide typical formating options such as font type and color would be a HUGE time saver for those of us trying to brand our applications.

There is still complexity in creating PowerApps, but you can't underestimate the power of the PowerApp, so naturally creating one could get complex. But the usage of the app should be straightforward, even if it relies heavily on the UX from the application designer. Overall, very user-friendly, does not require code, and relatively painlessly taps into business-critical information without requiring any data copying.

The community forums are extremely responsive to questions asked, there is a good body of online documentation and many community posts to draw from. Although the platform has changed, which means some of the posts are out of date and the solutions provided aren't relevant. Of relevance, I read over 400 articles plus documentation to get this first app built in SharePoint, move it to SQL and make it work exactly the way it should.

Alternatives Considered

Cognito Forms

I have also used Docu-sign a bit for similar data entry procedures when submitting applicants for financing and within our CRM. While Docu-sign works excellent, it is not as efficient as Cognito Forms and can prolong daily tasks creating some disconnect. Docu-sign is more useful for other tasks while Cognito Forms is pretty self-explanatory with its reports, data entry tasks, application submissions, and notification settings.

PowerApps

PowerApps is the first we have used in Office 365 and Azure Integration. It really helped us to integrate application in Azure and building short apps with low cost

Return on Investment

Cognito Forms

  • A simplified process
  • Everything in one place
  • All associates using the same system.

PowerApps

  • When having Office 365 subscription and Azure, has a superb ROI.
  • It is not necessary to have a best-in-class professional to start using.
