How to accelerate your business with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform?

While many organizations are acquainted with Microsoft Power Platform tools, many are still facing challenges in applying them to their business. Let’s see a few ways of how the combination of Dynamics 365 ERP and CRM is helping modernize business operations.

Form Processor – The use of the Form Processor component in Power Apps is a useful functionality to begin with. Form Reader allows you to train a model to read data from your document or image, even handwriting. The most common application is to automate AP operations using AP invoices. It can handle anything from creating an app that allows you to take a picture of an invoice with your phone and review the data before sending it to Dynamics 365 for Finance via standard connectors. Alternatively, you can also create a Power Automate flow that reads an invoice from an email and sends the data to your ERP via an Outlook Connector.

Power Virtual Agents – Virtual agents can effectively help to free up your employees by assisting in several mundane tasks. You may use Power Platform to construct Power Virtual Agent integration to help your employees with tasks like sending invoices, accessing important project papers and running test scripts. The Virtual Agent can assist users by answering pertinent questions, directing them to the SharePoint site and guiding them to the Microsoft Documents web page. Moreover, you can send an email alert when users are unable to locate the information they need.

Simplify CRM usage – Organizations often look for innovative approaches and more flexibility as they grow. Working with Microsoft Dynamics CRM allows you to increase system acceptance among several employees while also permitting you to integrate more data into your systems. The integration not only allows for fast and secure services but as well helps your employees to work efficiently. Furthermore, it also enables customization for remote employees, which may lead to higher productivity.

Increased mobility – There has been a lot of pressure to accommodate the mobility needs of increasing businesses, especially in sales and marketing. Manual updates, front and back are no longer helping. Therefore, the integration of Dynamics 365 with other tools features a robust solution to meet your business and customer needs, regardless of your users’ location. Dynamics 365 has features such as staff mapping and scheduling, managing service agreements and providing users with improved data at their fingertips.
