Application Development designed to enhance business productivity

Our experienced in-house team of technical consultants will help transform your existing application landscape through the delivery of purpose-built applications.

Power Apps and custom web applications

Given the integrated and inclusive nature of the Power Platform, our preference when developing applications is to leverage Power Apps and Power Automate, especially as most businesses have already invested in the Microsoft 365 offering.

Power Apps and Automate are both low-code/no-code platforms which enable our team to utilise shared resources in Microsoft 365 such as Azure AD, SharePoint lists and DataVerse.

There are two options when building Power Apps:

  • Canvas Apps: Highly visual and geared mainly towards devices such as mobiles and tablets.
  • Model-driven Apps: More process and data-driven like Dynamics Forms.

Through the use of Power Automate, workflows and tasks can be automated across multiple applications and services making use of hundreds of connectors. By utilising Power Apps, businesses follow a standardised approach that helps them achieve increased flexibility and the potential for future adaption.

It also allows for seamless integration with other Microsoft 365 and Azure services, whilst delivering an engaging user experience for those using the application.

Where Power Apps are unsuitable due to the business case, we recommend a Custom Web Development route utilising a smart blend of leading and industry standard development toolkits to enhance the Microsoft offering. This option gives businesses complete control over the interface and customer experience, whilst offering a flexible and more extensive offline working capability.

These browser-based Custom Web applications are usually more suited towards public facing or external users as no login into Microsoft 365 or software licencing is required.

A simple yet effective approach to Application Development

In a bid to modernise internal processes, many businesses have introduced a wide-range of cloud-based applications to satisfy departmental needs. In other cases, legacy solutions or Excel spreadsheets that rely heavily on manual input are being utilised to help organisations keep track of their data.

However, fragmented applications and spreadsheets do a lot more harm than good, as operational efficiency is hindered and decision-making is slowed without a company-wide applications strategy. In fact, many of the applications that businesses actively use are unsupported which could also have serious consequences for data security.

Whilst on the surface, individual applications may appear to be working well, in reality this couldn’t be further from the truth when viewing your applications landscape as a whole.

Without a cohesive strategy, it becomes difficult to share data and streamline processes, whilst manual data entry across multiple systems creates inefficiencies and increases the chance of errors. Ultimately, this leads to lost productivity and missed opportunities, as a culture of siloed applications restricts your ability to share and use data effectively.

By 2025, it is projected that businesses will be using an average of 129 applications to run their operations, so it is critical that you take stock of the current situation, developing an application strategy that will help you reorganise your approach. Our team has extensive experience developing applications that satisfy your business’ unique needs and requirements – get in touch to book a free 1 hour consultation.

Applications strategy engagement

As well as building bespoke applications, our team of in-house consultants will provide a strategic review of your existing application landscape, utilising our tried and tested approach to Application Development.

Also known as a Digital Transformation, our team will take a data-centric approach to analyse your landscape, including Excel, legacy applications and other tools to identify key process flows.

Our strategy focuses on providing a centralised, controlled and secure application data store responsible for delivering predictable and consistent business outcomes. These recommendations can be integrated with your existing business solutions such as payroll, finance, CRM and ERP systems, ensuring there are minimal disruptions to your ongoing operations.

Once this review is complete, we propose an achievable roadmap for a suite of tools to manage business processes, allowing your business to enjoy greater efficiency, accuracy and agility – a strategy that will enable you to achieve your long-term Application Development goals.
