Capex Request Approval Using Power Platform for Manufacturing Industry

A 90-year-old US-based manufacturing giant, operating globally with 22 sites across 17 countries, faced a significant business challenge. They were using SharePoint 2010, heavily customized but nearing its end of life. To embrace the cloud, they embarked on a Microsoft SharePoint migration journey. They had developed numerous in-house applications, including one for managing CAPEX Requests with location-based approval hierarchies. Leveraging SharePoint Online, PowerApps, and Power Automate, they redesigned and streamlined the process. With configurable approval hierarchies and detailed log management, they achieved efficiency and flexibility. This transformation, utilizing the Microsoft ecosystem, enhanced productivity, ensured cross-device usability, and required low maintenance.
