Build end-to-end mobile business solutions faster with Power Platform and Resco [short summary from a masterclass webinar]

Power Platform masterclass vol. 2

Learn hands-on how to build mobile apps for field workers using Resco and Power Platform. We will guide you through installing, customizing, deploying, and improving the solution and measuring the impact in a series of three 1-hour on-demand webinars with live Q&A sessions. 

In this workshop centered around a common business case, our Success team will guide you through the journey of a fictional company Z.A.P. Energy Cleaning.  

Z.A.P. Energy Cleaning uses Microsoft Dynamics 365 as its CRM. However, it has digitization requirements that go beyond a CRM solution and they’re looking for a way to grow on Power Platform. 

Through the Z.A.P. Energy Cleaning story, we will show you how you can use the same Resco tools you know and love for CRM on Power Platform to cover a wide range of business challenges. 

Our Success team will demonstrate: 

  • Setting up Resco Inspections+ for non-CRM use cases 
  • Building a solution for performing health & safety procedures and vehicle inspections, using templates and adjusting them to fit the use case 
  • Measuring the impact of the collected data with Fabric and Power BI
