Power Automate: Work less, do more

Studies have found that in many occupations, around one third of the activities that make up an individual’s job, could be automated. Too many workers are spending too much time on manual tasks, such as data collection and entry, signoffs, approvals and so much more. Wouldn’t it be great of employees could spend less time on these menial tasks, and more time adding real value to your organisation? This is where Power Automate comes in. 

Microsoft’s Power Automate is a cloud-based system which enables users to create and automate processes and actions, enabling users to save and effort being spent on repetitive and menial activities. You can use Power Automate to set up automatic workflows between your various business applications to enable you to collect data, sync files, get notifications and so much more. 

From a marketing perspective, you could set up a workflow so if somebody Tweeted about your company, a lead would automatically be generated within Dynamics 365 or sales force, you would also be able to automatically add them to your mailing list. 

You can use Power Automate to create your HR onboarding process. The workflow will automatically track the step you are on and will notify the next person when their assistance is needed. Saving you the hassle of tracking and monitoring the process yourself. 

Here is an example of how we use Power Automate to track our Webinar signup forms. When someone fills in the signup form it will trigger the workflow to pull the person’s email address and send them a confirmation email with all the webinar details. 

Power Automate enables you to create workflows which integrate with more than 200 applications and services. From the Microsoft suite of business applications to Twitter, LinkedIn, Salesforce, Dynamics and many more. This means you will likely be able to set up and automate workflows using your current software solutions.

If you would like to find more about Power Automate and how it can help your team save time by automating menial activities, join us for our webinar on Tuesday 23rd February 2021 @ 1PM.
