What is the Power Platform?
The Power Platform is a set of tools built by Microsoft that allows users to develop and manage custom built applications, workflows, and analytic reports in a streamlined and low-code environment. This set of tools consists of 3 main components PowerApps, Power Automate, and PowerBI. Here at FBS we are leveraging each of these applications to create amazing tools that changing the foundation of how our business leverages technology. In most situations to develop an app it can cost well over $100,000 dollars, we are now able to create our our solutions tailored to our needs for significantly cheaper, and since we are and ESOP, that mean more money in our pockets as employee owners.
