Quickly build apps that improve business processes

Coordinating data and reports across different departments, locations, and devices is a complex task. Businesses need to unify multiple platforms into one workflow, all while providing secure data access and connections with internal and external interfaces, including government websites. 

Microsoft Power Apps enables custom application development to solve issues like these, without the need for expensive and slow traditional coding methods. Applications can be created to gather and augment data for reports, coordinate workflows, automate manual processes, and extend the functionality of existing systems such as CRMs. 

As an early adopter of Office 365 Power Apps and a Microsoft Gold Partner in Data Analytics, DWC is experienced in developing device-agnostic, custom applications for clients. Through Power Apps development and consulting, we can help you coordinate data, modernise your business processes, and increase user productivity.

What is Power Apps?

Part of the Microsoft Power Platform, Power Apps enables anyone to build custom, no-code apps in the cloud. It includes pre-built templates, out-of-the-box AI components, and drag-and-drop functionality to enable users with no coding experience to rapidly develop and automate apps with ease. 

Thanks to the platform’s large library of connectors, data sources can be accessed by Power Apps on premise and in the cloud. Power Apps can be used with Power Automate to create automated workflows and processes, such as email notifications and data collection, and with Power BI to display data in realtime on interactive dashboards.

In essence, our focus is on delivering exceptional value for your investment, ensuring that both your time and finances are leveraged to their fullest potential.

The cost of data solutions can vary significantly based on several critical factors. The complexity of your existing infrastructure is a primary determinant—more sophisticated requirements usually incur higher expenses. Additionally, the scale of the operation can greatly influence the overall investment required.

Customization levels are also a crucial consideration; standard solutions are generally more cost-effective, whereas bespoke systems can lead to increased costs. The choice of technology, including software and cloud services, impacts the financial outlay, as does the necessity for ongoing support and staff training.

Moreover, the volume of data being processed and the number of users accessing the system will affect the cost.

In practice, we steer clear of a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to pricing. Our strategy is to meticulously customize each data solution, taking into account the unique nuances and specific needs of your business.
