Product Overview

Enhance Your Teams Experience With Microsoft's Power Platform

The Power Platform is an umbrella term for four different Microsoft services that we use to add a valuable new dimension to your Microsoft Teams platform. Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents, enables you to uncover data insights in real-time, build custom applications, chat bots and automated workflows tailored to your business needs across your organisation. Resonate can help you deploy Power Platform services inside your Teams environment to greatly enhance the experience of your users.

Platform Components

The Power Platform encompasses four different, but highly complementary services:

  • Power BI is a business intelligence and analytics service we use to provide customers with real-time data and present this in easy to understand dashboards and reports, which can then be published into Microsoft Teams
  • Power Automate is the service we use to create automated workflows between applications and services. It enables customers to synchronize files, get notifications, collect data, and initiate automated actions
  • PowerApps is the service we use to quickly create and deploy bespoke business applications that can be used on desktop and mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows). Power Apps offers built-in connectors to more than 200 systems and services, the ability to create custom connectors and access data stored on-premises with the data gateway
  • Power Virtual Agents is the service we use to create powerful chatbots for different customer use cases

Project Starting Points

There are generally two main routes into a Power Platform project and we are happy to work with you in either scenario. Once we have established your requirements, we can offer you applications, flows or Power BI Dashboards from our portfolio. If these do not meet your requirements, then we create a bespoke solution to meet your needs.

  • Route 1: If you are looking to enhance your Teams experience, we can highlight areas within your organisation in which the Power Platform can help save you time and money.
  • Route 2: If you have your own application ideas and have already highlighted ways in which you can improve your business processes, we can help you to implement these ideas using our expertise in the Power Platform.
