PowerApps and Microsoft Flow now available in Office 365 Enterprise K1 plan

As previously announced, we have added new value to the Office 365 Enterprise K1 plan. This plan is designed to maximize the impact and contribution of frontline workers with tools for schedule and task management, communications and community, training and onboarding, and identity and access management.

In a mobile-ready world, workforce dynamics have shifted. A growing number of team members work without a standard workstation or even a dedicated computer, laptop or tablet. They may be on their feet all day, without even a standard seat. If your scenarios include healthcare staff, restaurant crews, construction, manufacturing, or retail, for example, your users need immediate access to productivity tools and business process as soon as they log in at a walkup workstation. The Office 365 Enterprise K1 plan is focused specifically on solving those business challenges, without friction.

 

The Office 365 Enterprise K1 plan

A core part of our expanded value proposition in Office 365 Enterprise K1 is the ability to use PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. PowerApps is a powerful new way to turn business expertise into customer applications. With PowerApps, your team can quickly and easily create apps without writing a single line of code. PowerApps puts the power to transform your business in your hands. PowerApps has an intuitive design interface to guide you the whole way as you create apps for your team or business. Your app can integrate with data you already have or use our built-in platform. You can build apps for the web and mobile and take full advantage of your device's features. Plus, you can share apps with your team and quickly customize them as your business evolves. PowerApps can boost your team's productivity with a custom app that's exactly the right fit for your business.

Microsoft Flow is a product to help you set up automated workflows between your favorite apps and services to synchronize files, get notifications, collect data, and more. With PowerApps and Microsoft Flow, you can connect to data sources like Office 365, SharePoint, Dropbox, Twitter, and other common SaaS and enterprise services.

 

Let's see an example...

Imagine a retail organization that has 1000 stores across the country, with each store having about 10 kiosks on an average. There is an IT team with 10 members, who creates business apps on PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. These app makers need a plan which give them ability to create apps on PowerApps and Microsoft Flow e.g. Office 365 E1, E3 or E5. (Learn about all the plans.) And the rest of the 30,000 frontline workers, with Office 365 Enterprise K1 plan already have what they need to play these apps.
