Automate Processes with Power Automate

Microsoft 365 comes with different applications to help make your day-to-day run more smoothly, but did you know that they can also be automated to work together and with other solutions to help you do more with the same resources?

Microsoft Power Automate enables the automating of business processes which occur when a specific event or action is triggered. For instance, you may want to copy a file to SharePoint as soon as someone uploads it to OneDrive, or aggregate and automate all your approval processes in Teams.

Automations can be as simple as setting daily reminders or moving business data between systems on a schedule. Essentially, Power Automate is an extremely versatile tool, that OfficeLabs can use to connect and automate not only Microsoft solutions but against more than 500 data sources or any available solution API – across desktop, web, and mobile.

Great, but how will that help my organisation?

The number one driver for automation is productivity – reducing manual effort through automation so everyone can focus on adding value to the organisation and enjoying their roles, and to enable your organisation to do more with the same or less resources. Find out more about our Productivity service and solutions.

Customers are also looking increasingly at the responsiveness of any organisation they want to engage. As an example, when you place an order with an online shop, you’ll start to get worried if you haven’t had an email confirmation. Many organisations still rely on manual order handling and don’t realise that there are alternative options that will improve the experience for both their customers and themselves.

Power Automate uses automation to take the time and stress out of many business processes, as well as allowing you to connect to and collect data from over five hundred different sources, including Facebook, SalesForce, Dropbox, Slack, and more. OfficeLabs will work with you to determine where your most common time-consuming tasks lie and create the automations you need to automate those tasks as much as possible.

Have a look at some of the examples that OfficeLabs have automated using Power Automate:

Digital Document Signing – we digitised and automated a document signing process, driving productivity as well as better document management.

Asset Management – we digitised and automated an asset management process, driving productivity as well as better asset awareness.
