Power Automate

Streamline your business processes with Power Automate

Previously known as Microsoft Flow, Power Automate allows you to create workflows that automate tasks between Microsoft services or other third-party applications. You can think of Power Automate as your personal assistant – making quick work of repetitive manual tasks. 

  • Boost productivity across your entire organisation

  • Automate quickly and securely

  • Put intelligent workflows to work 

Why Power Automate?

With Power Automate, you can leave the manual approach to tasks and digital processes in the past. By automating core processes throughout your organisation, you can free up resource for other aspects of your business, such as customer relations, research and innovation. 

Streamline repetitive tasks  With Power Automate you can automate tasks thanks to the possibilities offered by Artificial Intelligence. This allows you to free up time usually spent on tedious manual tasks and focus your energy on pursuing your business goals.   

Securely work with data – Backed by a series of cloud services designed to protect your data, the Power Automate platform offers a user-friendly no-code guided experience. This enables everyone to securely automate workflows at whatever scale works best for your business.

Save time with Robotic Process Automation (RPA)  The advanced Robotic Process Automation (RPA) capabilities of Power Automate save your organisation time and effort by simplifying process automation. Whether you’re automating tasks using legacy systems or innovative technology, with a few simple clicks you can set up rules and let the platform do the work.

How Power Automate works

When it comes to automation, the possibilities are endless. As well as using pre-built templates from Power Automate, you can create your own automated workflows between apps, effortlessly setting up functionalities such as alerts, emails and push notifications. Here’s how it works: 

Create a workflow – Use Power Automate to create an original multi-step flow, or choose from hundreds of templates. You can connect to over 150 data sources (or connectors) to collect data, synchronise files, and receive notifications. Then create workflows which can be scheduled, triggered manually, or automatically performed based on actions. 

Easy and seamless integration with other applications – Beyond moving data around, Power Automate can formulate automated workflows that connect you to your data as well—irrespective of its location. This enhances team collaboration and productivity across your organisation, creating seamless integration with OneDrive, SharePoint and Dynamics 365. 

Keeps processes consistent – Once a workflow is set up in Power Automate, the workflow acts in the background to alert you to specific notifications, upload files, and completed desired automated tasks. You can easily trigger workflows to update records in another system, highlight the new field to an employee or even check if the records match another data source.

RPA stands for Robotic Process Automation. It is the ability of Power Automate to automacially do tasks for you. This can be in the background or unattended or you can have an attended version where you run the process. You can teach Power Automate processes by doing them and recording them and it can learn the steps and then take over.

Attended RPA processes are where a user has to select the process they want the automation to run for and run it on their PC. Unattended RPA is where the process automation runs automatically without user intervention.
