We use the Microsoft PowerApps platform to power our membership systems.
PowerApps is a Platform solution which gives you ultimate flexibility, it’s an easy-to-use flexible application which is part of the Microsoft family of applications within Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), so it works seamlessly with all of the M365 applications such as Outlook and SharePoint. With it being a Microsoft product, its open architecture means it’s compatible with the vast majority of other software applications on the market.
The customisation and flexibility makes it a perfect solution for any membership organisation looking to add value to their membership and also save some valuable admin time in the process.
The great thing about PowerApps is that it’s not a one size fits all. You’re able to start with as much or as little functionality as you’d like.
You may want to start off with basic functions and build on them over time, that’s always a sensible option as you then have the ability to add specific functions as and when required; instead of running before you can walk. This lends itself very well to splitting the roll-out of the system into stages, to give staff and committee members time to adjust.
Microsoft are consistently upgrading the features within PowerApps, giving peace of mind that it’s here for the long term and will offer even more fantastic features as the technology advances.
