VNB Consulting Services rolled out the table of authority functionality using Microsoft Power Apps that enabled the internal resources to quickly get details on the various authorization levels and approvers depending on one or many classifications like Category and Amount range. One of the key requirements, was for dynamic display of fields and data based on key attributes. VNB made sure the PowerApps UI screens were functional and clear irrespective of any type of display created dynamically by leveraging latest features in PowerApps. The solution’s inherent mobility made it easier for the employees to effectively use it on the go at any given time on any device. The app also had multiple screens to display static images containing visuals or procedures by just placing them on OneDrive or SharePoint locations. The responsive solution allowed the customer to easily navigate through the various screens in any type of device (web or tablets or phone). The solution and its data model was created in such a way that it allowed for future extensibility and scalability with minimal changes.

Customer Benefits

  • Internal team no longer had to rely on logging into the computers and pull up the documents with the authorization levels.
  • Centralized access to the app across organization helped maintain a single source of information, rather than each team having their own version causing confusion and rework.
  • The solution provided a foundation for building automated approval system as a side effect using Microsoft Flow.
