Every business wants to save money. The more you can save on things like operational expenses, productivity sinks and common challenges, the more you can invest in the growth of your organisation. In today’s world, where business owners are facing an unpredictable economy and an ever-changing array of new challenges, saving cash has never been more important.
The good news is there are tools out there capable of accelerating the profitability of your business, boosting team performance, and cutting costs at the same time. In the new technology landscape, the age of “apps and automation” has paved the way for low-input, high-return strategies for organisational growth.
In fact, according to studies, 30% of employees say automation saves their business time, and 44% say it saves crucial time. A further 33% of workers also believe automation allows them to accomplish more with access to fewer resources.
Here’s how Apps, Automation and Analytics using the Power Platform can generate better results for your organisation.
In today’s fast-changing world, companies can’t simply stand still if they want to stay ahead of the competition. Achieving better business results, money-saving opportunities, and better business performance means investing in new and innovative technology.
Countless companies have found that implementing automated solutions and intelligent apps into their workflows have generated massive returns on their investments. According to the 2020 InSight Report, 53% of employees believe they can save 2 hours of work per day through automation. Furthermore, 73% of business leaders say automation can save up to 360 working hours per year!
Unfortunately, in the past, the high cost and resource requirements associated with building automated workflows has created a significant barrier to entry for smaller brands. Old-fashioned automation strategies required significant investment in technology, time, and expertise.
Microsoft’s Power Platform offers a welcome alternative. This low-cost and high-return platform provides companies with a suite of tools which allow them to create solutions in minutes that would have otherwise taken weeks, or months to produce.
The “low code” offering means users with varying technical skills can develop their own apps, automations, and even custom bots to address specific business needs, from handling HR requests to dealing with IT and sales.
What’s more, Microsoft’s strong partner platform means companies in need of additional help to leverage and implement their automation strategy have a range of options available.
