PowerTools integrates with Microsoft’s Power Platform to deliver a complete workflow utility solution. Users can integrate over 90 pre-built functions into their flows or apps to effortlessly create their own process-automation solutions – without needing specialist coding knowledge or experience.
Build automations that convert currency, perform advanced calculations, translate languages, generate map images, display stock quotes, redact sensitive information and much, much more – with simple drag and drop component tools.
Microsoft Power Platform is a group of business application development services available within the Microsoft 365 suite.
Organisations of all sizes using Microsoft 365 can access the Power Platform to build better ways to use their business data. They can do this by creating their own flows, apps and reports that take data from different sources and sort, retrieve or transform it in the way they need.
Microsoft developed Power Platform to give businesses of all sizes the ability to build more efficient and valuable ways of using their data, drive better business decisions and outperform their competitors.
Microsoft Power Platform is comprised of four separate applications – Power Automate, Power Apps, Power BI, and Power Virtual Agents.
These applications can be used individually or combined to build custom business solutions. Microsoft provides a number of add-ons or “plugins” to enhance the native capabilities of Power Platform, including connections to other Microsoft 365 services such as SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams, along with external connections to services such as Salesforce and SAP.
The entire platform is extensible and open to partner solutions, supporting custom plugins that provide additional functionality beyond what is available “out of the box”. There are hundreds of such connectors, including PowerTools LITE and PowerTools PRO.
The PowerTools plugin integrates with the Power Automate and Power Apps components of Power Platform using the certified connector framework provided by Microsoft.
You can find the PowerTools LITE and PowerTools PRO plugins in the official list of available connectors – https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/
Formerly Microsoft Flow, Power Automate is a tool found within the Microsoft 365 application suite that can be used by everyday users to create automated workflows that connect and process data between different apps and platform services.
You can use Power Automate in a number of ways to boost productivity and save time – like automatically synchronizing files to cloud storage providers, prompt notifications on deliverable actions, and even automatically monitor social media accounts for brand mentions.
Power Apps lets users create custom business apps within their Microsoft 365 interface. These apps or widgets can be purposefully designed to simplify and transform everyday business processes – being utilised again and again to time-saving effect.
Using a drag and drop interface, even non-developer users can build their app without writing a single line of code – all they need is an idea of how to make something better.
The apps can then be shared and accessed on desktop or mobile devices with team members throughout your organisation.
PowerTools eliminates the need for complex expression syntax and formulas when designing workflows or apps.
Because the functions available are pre-built, utilising them is as simple as dragging and dropping them from a selected menu.
PowerTools has been designed to put the power of process-automation in the hands of the everyday, non-developer, user.
No code, no headaches.
You just need an idea of how to automate a business process and PowerTools will have a function to help.
Redact a sensitive document, localize currencies and dates, translate text into multiple languages, perform advanced calculations, convert text to speech, validate email addresses, shorten hyperlinks, transform data and more with only a few clicks.
PowerTools grows with your business, automatically scaling from just a few users to hundreds of thousands.
Easily add it to your tenant from the Power Platform Connector Gallery and pay only for the number of API calls you use, with no long-term commitments or contracts.
Pricing plans begin at only $49/mo.
When you’re ready for more power, add a PRO subscription to unlock all functions available in PowerTools including on-the-fly text translation, text-to-speech, currency conversion, image resizing etc. Pricing is charged on the number of daily API calls you make – so you can scale as you grow.
