Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is good for using for small apps and automation on Office stuff.""The most valuable features are low-code and fast development.""The solution allows you to use data to create excellent UI and quickly deliver an app. It speeds up production time.""There's a lot of online knowledge on the solution, to the point where new users can basically teach themselves how to use the solution.""We get feedback on a real-time basis, which is actually very useful for us.""If you want something that you can use for cellphones, multiple tablets, and things like that, you can use PowerApps for the front end. It gathers all the information, and the information goes somewhere else.""The solution is excellent at figuring how to build an application in three months. It makes it very quick and easy.""In Microsoft PowerApps the most valuable features are the fully customizable design that we can control everything that we would like to control. For example, the integration between Microsoft and third-party services through pre-built connectors, and the functionality to create custom connectors."

A lot of code gets reused while building the applications, which is something we highly appreciate.""The workflow designing and integration are the most valuable features.

More Pega BPM Pros →

"The flexibility and the user interface need improvement.""We're not in production yet, so we're still working through some issues.""Improvements to the capturing of geographic locations and integration with maps would raise my score of the product from seven point five to its maximum of ten.""The solution should have more integration with other platforms.""The solution needs a bit more refinement in general.""We'd like more features and less to no coding.""The stability of this solution could be better.""Microsoft PowerApps can be more costly for small teams or organizations."

More Microsoft PowerApps Cons →

"It needs more integration with other platforms.""The way the IDE works with the chatbox and the taxonomy imports could be a little smoother.""First-time customers will find its licensing tricky. The technical support team for this solution could be faster in resolving tickets.""The cost of licensing could be improved.""They are currently spending some time on improving the product with respect to machine learning, especially related to robotic automation. They probably could be a little more adept on that area would help.""UI needs improvement.""Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options.""It's called a local platform but on the other hand, it needs a lot of experience. It's not all that easy to click and plug and play. If you really want to use all the features out of this platform, you definitely need a lot of experience and a lot of training to get there."

Pricing and Cost Advice

  • "The company has a subscription where you can use certain features for free, but there are features that require a premium subscription to use."
  • "The enterprise-level costs a great deal of money, and you have to purchase additional licenses to scale it."
  • "We use the Office 365 package, and Microsoft PowerApps is a part of the package. We don't pay any separate price for this. There are no additional costs. We just pay for the Office 365 package."

  • "This is not an expensive product and there are no licensing fees."
  • "It is not expensive. There is no licensing cost."
