It is no wonder mistakes are made, as cell entry is error-prone and it’s also labour intensive for all parties. With remote working too, data transfer by email is a security risk so having a cloud-based solution will ensure every communication under it, (as it acts as a hub even if you have legacy systems); will benefit from Microsoft’s commitment to security, GDPR and futureproofing strategies.
Power Apps instead of spreadsheets?
We can create an app that replaces the need for a spreadsheet altogether, so everyone using it can see data quickly and easily. Data will also be secure but accessable across all devices. You can export to Excel if required, but mostly this won’t be necessary as data is pushed and pulled from the Dynamics 365 CRM and any updates made by you or colleagues are instantaneous – now all of your team are ‘literally‘ on the same page.
Processes are simplified as:
- No duplication when Sharing and updating your data
- Manual handling errors are taken away.
- The data composed can be set to comply with regulations.
- Processes are easy and quick to troubleshoot.
- Your departments will benefit from a 360-degree view of the data they need in a dashboard format that they can tailor-make.
Power Platform apps are easily configured with a user-friendly drag and drop interface and rapidly deployed with the change being visible within minutes. The license for this app starts from £7.50p/u/p/m.
As your business scales up increased use of spreadsheets for multiple processes will compound any of the problems you are facing today. Power apps will simplify and streamline pushing and pulling the data your team needs whether they are on-premises or remote working.
