We realise there are many tasks and apps to juggle and navigate in a working day let alone the repetitiveness of those tasks. Sometimes, you want a given task to be completed with minimum or no effort. We understand this too well, as many clients approach us with the same challenges.  

Our solution to them and now to you is Microsoft Power Automate, an online tool, formerly Microsoft Flow, used for the auto synchronisation of applications, data collection, analysis monitoring, getting notifications etc. The tool takes care of everything you spend your valuable time doing on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis. It automates your processes, leaving you free to work on more important tasks.  

To start automating your repetitive tasks, you can create a cloud, desktop, or business process flows. Watch this video for more information on these flow types.
