Overall Satisfaction with PowerApps

We create alot of our own programs in house and we have recently sought the need to build apps for what we do. The Power Apps program is very user friendly for us to start the app building process. Our IT Team is able to utilize it to build apps for our employees to make certain job tasks more efficient and effective. We always need help with getting different program platforms to communicate with one another. We also need data that we have stored to be accessible to our employees as they move freight every day. Building an app for that has helped immensely.
  • Power Apps has formats that are pre-built that don't require any coding which makes it easier to achieve your vision. This does become a challenge if your App needs don't fit into that format.
  • We deal with a ton of data so the fact that you can connect to any data source in addition to their pre-stablished data connections makes the process a breeze.
  • The online learning resources and tutorials are helpful as well for those who are tech savvy.
  • I think more formats would be helpful.
  • I think having more customizability with current formats.
  • App Coding Formats.
  • Cost Savings.
  • Training Resources.
  • Having the ability to access important data points has given time back to our frontline employees who can utilize that to generate more profit.
We have not utilized any other products that are similar.

When building a data pulling app from one of our current programs we ran into trouble with the current program having the ability to communicate to an app without losing restrictions on the program. It did require communicating that out with the program provider. There are times where you will have to figure out solutions to make the app work that our outside of the Microsoft program.
