How DynaRent PowerApps help your business thrive

Microsoft Dynamics PowerApps gives businesses a platform for creating end user apps. These apps work with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for CRM and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. PowerApps offer end users lots of possibilities, but for this blog we’re going to focus on the “Dynamics angle.”

As a Microsoft Dynamics ISV, To-Increase is really excited about Microsoft Dynamics PowerApps potential. As a result it brings our DynaRent software into a mobile and cloud space for equipment-driven rental and service industries. If you’re not yet familiar with PowerApps, here’s a quick video that showcases how this new platform works.

How Microsoft Dynamics PowerApps can “mobilize” the DynaRent solutions suite

To-Increase’s goal is to provide an out-of-the-box PowerApps bundle. This way our DynaRent customers can adopt and use the PowerApps within their daily operations. Of course, there are always specific business requirements that can’t be covered within a standard business app. But the Microsoft Dynamics PowerApps platform lets our customers modify standard DynaRent business apps themselves.

Microsoft Dynamics PowerApps functionality with To-Increase industry and business expertise is enhanced. Therefore customers can successfully bring many of our DynaRent capabilities directly onto their mobile device. It is much more than a pretty UI screen!

Make all your employees part of a mobile workforce

DynaRent PowerApps are not restricted to the mobile field service workforce. Mobile apps are also available for internal roles such as:

  • Depot Managers
  • Rental Clerks
  • Rental Managers
  • Fuel Managers
  • and more…

Bring in more customers by giving them business apps

Today’s end customer expects to do business via apps—indeed, many prefer apps to direct or even website transactions and communications. First of all, using PowerApps with DynaRent can allow you to provide customers with apps that give them quick access to information, transactions, and status. In addition, it is possible with a single tap to find anything they need to know about their rentals, equipment, rental stops, exchanges, service, invoicing—you name it. Furthermore, such an app would increase customer satisfaction, improve efficiency, reduce workload, and eliminate paper trails. These 4 benefits alone could make a significant difference for your equipment-driven rental and service company.

Here’s an example of an app built using DynaRent PowerApps. This app allows users to quickly view information about equipment in a specific depot, including equipment status. It’s especially useful for depot managers, who can quickly search for and filter details, and update equipment status as needed. It’s available both online and offline. As a result, users who go offline work with near-real time data and sync with the system the next time they go online.
