The first set of mobile solutions for Power Platform launches 

We are happy to bring our mobile expertise to the Power Platform and make it available for everyone developing business applications in this environment.  

The first set includes three apps: Forms+, Docs+, and Steps+, which give you the ability to create questionnaires, documents, and guides (and much more).  

Now anyone developing on the Power Platform will be able to utilize the best from Resco to speed up the development of business applications that tackle frontline challenges related to data capture, knowledge sharing, and document generation.

We are supporting partners in building their own verticals  

We see this as a great opportunity for partners to differentiate themselves in the market and to create a new business offering.  

“Our technology can do the heavy lifting and enable partners to create a branded, custom app for their solutions,” said Andrew.  

Another partner utilizing Resco’s technology for a specialized business app is Tom Moortgat from Cegeka. Tom has built Fearless Leader, a fully customized solution for the pharmaceutical industry.

It’s a tailored ISV solution for enhancing sales and service performance, utilizing Resco’s mobile capabilities to build it on top of Microsoft Dynamics 365 CE and Power BI. 

Further investing in the quality of the mobile experience  

We are continuing to invest significantly in developing our offline capabilities to keep delivering the best offline experience on the market.  

We are focusing on making UI / UX improvements to ensure frontline workers’ experience with enterprise software is as comfortable as consumer apps.  

Some of the UX / UI improvements are already available as a part of our recent release.

Bringing the cloud to the ground 

These were the key five takeaways from Andrew Lorraine’s keynote.  The conference then continued with two tracks – the Technical Track and the Business Track.  The overarching theme connecting them is our dedication to building mobile-first technology that works reliably and is geared towards meeting the real needs of users.  

We really are thrilled to be here to reconnect with you, and also, to roll up our sleeves, to talk about the specific challenges that your businesses are facing.
