Overall Satisfaction with PowerApps

We have used PowerApps to create custom cloud-based solutions for on-prem systems. This has allowed us to go fully virtual and provide a wealth of information and systems to our customer service representatives to drive a world-class customer experience. We have built a custom invoicing system which allows the customer service representative to generate invoices upon request for our customers.
  • Low Code Solutions
  • Flexible connections
  • Built In Database(CDS)
  • Exporting Data out of the CDS is very limited
  • Save screen to PDF or Save data table to PDF
  • Data imports could be easier
  • Create custom applications to drive customer experience
  • The agent experience has improved
  • Costs of use compared to some on-prem solutions has drastically went down
PowerApps and Power Automate go together in the Power platform. They are made to work together to create a vast collection of connectors and out of the box pieces that come together to make a whole application. If you are unable to complete a task from within PowerApps, Power Automate is the best choice to look for that task.
PowerApps is a great solution and I have spent the last year familiarizing myself with the platform and building custom applications to complete a whole range of tasks such as asset management, custom invoice generation, and item restriction tracking. We as a company have barely begun to scratch the surface of what can be achieved with PowerApps.
