Over the last few years, the Microsoft Power Platform has continued to grow in capabilities. Innovia has a team dedicated to creating projects for customers from within this platform. The Power Platform consists of the following tools: Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents. When you look at what these products are capable of, they show themselves to be far superior to similar products on the market.

Imagine you have an operation where the product is stored outdoors in locations geographically separate. You need an easy way to see a map showing where the products are located. Then you want to click on a section of the map to see exactly what products are in that area, which products are sold or promised to a customer, and which are open inventory. You also want to see other attributes of the product such as serial numbers, lot numbers, color, size, etc. Innovia has built such a system for a couple of our customers. Now any member of the company can easily “see” what is in inventory. All from a Power BI screen.

Outdoor Inventory App



Imagine you are a service industry company. Your employees go out on service calls, and you need a method they can use on their phones or tablets for entry of the call information. You also need to get customer signatures once the work is completed. Innovia has built this exact type of solution for our customers using Power Apps.

Signature Capture App



When your company is at a trade show and wants to capture the business card information from attendees, you can have an app that scans the business card and properly reads all the information. That data can then be automatically uploaded to BC or your CRM. Yes, Innovia has done that also with Power Apps.

Business Card Reader App



The Power Platform provides strong functionality at a much lower cost than custom-built software. It operates in the cloud and easily integrates directly into Business Central. If you are on a NAV version, the platform can also be integrated into your on-premise systems.

In the coming weeks, your Innovia Customer Engagement Specialist will be talking with you about how Power Platform can help your business. This is the future of the digital world. We are ready to help you experience it.
