Bolstering internal processes with Microsoft Flow

In April last year, Microsoft introduced a new product designed to facilitate automated workflow development in the age of the digital enterprise. The Software-as-a-Service offering, called Microsoft Flow, allows businesses to create complex workflows using data from more than 160 applications, including Dynamics 365, Office 365 and Outlook. With Flow you can add Twitter leads to your CRM or contacts to MailChimp.

The benefits are obvious here. Automated processes lead to increased efficiency, higher productivity and, eventually, larger revenues. They also reduce employee administrative burdens, allowing workers to spend their time on bottom line-building initiatives that promote growth rather than meager data entry tasks.

Configuring the solution takes little time, as Flow comes equipped with workflow templates made for linchpin Microsoft products. Firms with mobile-ready processes can also take advantage of the product. Microsoft debuted the Flow mobile application with the desktop version and this past June released an iOS iteration, according to TechCrunch. Both of these mobile applications allow users to pull text messages into automated workflows, facilitating even more cohesive backend processes.

Flow is based on Microsoft’s Logic App Service, which gives in-house developers the power to hard-code custom automated systems incorporating multiple mission-critical applications, ZDNet reported. With Flow, non-technically inclined users can achieve similar results in less time.

This solution is ideal for modern organizations juggling numerous platforms with little cohesion between them. Is your business in this tough operational position? Connect with The TM Group today.
