The tool connects to the expenses recording system, extracts the out of policy employees and sends individual reminder emails that are logged into a Microsoft Teams channel for audit and reference purposes. An integrated Power BI report is used for trend and behaviour analysis.
As a data technology company, we supplement low code development with data architecture services and bespoke data applications to ensure that the solutions are technically robust and per IT standards.
In order to generate complex regulatory reporting outputs, business users need to combine transactional data with ad-hoc assumptions and reference data.
Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft Power Automate allowed us to rapidly and iteratively develop a secure, web-based solution that allows users to manage and upload system validated datasets which are then integrated into regulatory run configurations for reporting outputs. The application is distributed and secured via Microsoft Teams or the user’s preferred web browser.
As a data technology company, our Microsoft Power Platform delivery teams are supported by the architecture and solution design services necessary to build robust solutions.
