The demo will show how a workflow is kicked-off, the process of routing and review, and ultimately, how approvals work in the workflow. We will give you an up-close look at how the solution was built, how it can have a significant impact on a process that is manual in nature or paper-based. The demo will focus on a simple workflow that is common across all organizations, large and small!

Kiefer was fortunate to see Microsoft Flow and PowerApps at the Microsoft hosted “Future of SharePoint” event in San Francisco, CA on May 4, 2016. During this event, Microsoft representatives talked about the importance of SharePoint power users learning to use Flow and Power Apps since they would be built-in with SharePoint. It was immediately after that event that Kiefer team members started to discuss how we could get on the Flow and Power Apps bandwagon. We are well established as a go-to partner when it comes to digital business process transformation, so it would be critical that we not only learned Flow and Power Apps, but we needed to become experts in the technology. We also know that Microsoft Flow in government has huge potential to improve legacy processes and common processes across numerous departments in the public-sector.Read More

Let’s start here… Imagine a large array of gears. Each gear is representative of a process that is critical to your business.

How can a leader of a business unit identify the most inefficient processes and improve business operations?
