If you need additional Office 365, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams or Power Platform support, feel free to contact us and one of our expert advisors will be able to assist you.

Power Automate is an easy and powerful tool that has allowed us to save time and money, boost productivity, streamline every day tasks and share data faster. In a digital world that is always connected and always working, businesses that use Power Automate are not looking back.
It is never too late to get started. 

So what is Power Automate?

These day's there's a cloud service for everything. Power Automate is a user friendly way to connect all of your favourite apps and automate the tasks that you find too time consuming. With the option to create your own multi-step workflow or start from one of the many templates, it's simple to automate what you want.

Why waste time constantly checking emails when you can get a text message whenever an important contact emails you? Automating means you can use your time to work on other things, like setting up a flow that manages your Twitter.  Has somebody mentioned your company in a Tweet? Let Power Automate take care of it with a flow that follows them, sends a nice reply, adds them to a spreadsheet that gets emailed to you for approval and then adds their contact to Dynamics 365.

You can connect to over 100 services and choose from hundreds of pre-made templates, tweak them, or create your own.

Power Automate is part of the Microsoft Power Platform, alongside Power Apps and Power BI. We use Power Automate everyday in our SharePoint development projects. Often in combination with Power Apps to digitise your paper forms and processes.
