Modern Components on Office 365

Breaking News: Announcing BPA Modern Components on Office 365

Modern Components on Office 365

Revolutionize the way to build modern apps to run on any device, with your favorite tools, like Teams or SharePoint. 

Over the last 14 years, we have developed software solutions built on SharePoint and SharePoint Online.

Today, we are very excited to announce brand new modern components, entirely redesigned with the latest Microsoft development technologies.

Performance was the main consideration that guided the entire development team from the project start: “we want to give end users the best performance”. Still, we keep aligned with our main differentiators to provide simple and innovative solutions with the highest flexibility. Modern components make it easier for power users to extend existing apps or create new ones.

Thanks to the responsive design, apps and components can be used on desktops (as back-office solutions) or mobile devices as frontline solutions (e.g. in the field or on the production line). Apps and components have been designed to work with SharePoint, or Microsoft Teams.

Based on our experience with hundreds of clients, we have developed new components and redesigned existing, commonly used “pillar” components. The new Master-Detail component increases productivity while navigating in the software. BPA Forms brings new capabilities, such as previewing and testing forms in the designer.

We will soon release modern apps for quality and compliance, medical and CRM. In addition, the coming modern app building platform will enable business people to build responsive apps to run on any device.

Workflow Automation

Releasing Workflow Automation Set for Ultimate Document Management

Document Workflow Automation

We have designed a set of 13 automated workflows – built on Microsoft Power Automate – for simplified document approval, publication and training. Workflows are generic to cover the needs of most organizations and very flexible to be adapted if needed.

They include automated rules to trigger actions and notifications which reduce manual work, avoiding document confusion, reducing time to publish documents, and making sure collaborators understand these documents. These actions are performed by automated workflows:

  • Document creation from any document template
  • Unique document identification
  • Request approval for new documents, revisions and archiving
  • Document review, approval and publication with easy approval on any device
  • Full traceability on review, approval, and training receipts
  • Archiving of completed review, approval, training receipts

Optionally, we provide an eSignature add-in which can be used together with these workflows for additional security, like required by medical regulations.

Workflows are ready to be imported and plugged with the next coming modern apps for quality on Office 365. With little effort, our teams can help clients to plug workflows on their classic version of BPA Quality.

Simplify Audits & Inspections with the New Audit Power Apps

BPA Audit & Inspection App on Microsoft Power Apps.

The audit app is dedicated to auditors or inspectors working on the field, on production lines, or visiting stakeholders. It can be used with a mobile device anywhere, even when no internet connection is available. The app runs on a web browser or Microsoft Power Apps.

The app is designed to work together with BPA Quality on Office 365. The audit preparation, like selecting questions is done in the full-featured BPA software. Follow-up actions are also tracked in the back-office software, together with dashboard and Power BI reports. Prebuilt workflows – running on Power Automate – automate the whole audit process.

The audit app reads data and questions from the BPA software. While auditing in offline mode, data will be stored in the app and uploaded to the BPA software once a connection is available.

For each question, auditors can touch the screen to set compliance and take photos, record voice or upload documents as proof of evidence.

As a conclusion, the BPA Audit App brings auditors & inspectors the best experience while auditing, even when no connection is available. The back-office full-featured BPA software consolidates audit data together with other modules to continually improve compliance and performance.

Process automation is a key factor when working with our business software solutions. By automating processes, organizations reduce time to run processes, reduce manual work and related errors, and improve performance.

TeamsAppVideoScree

Introducing BPA List Search App on Microsoft Teams

Search and share information from BPA directly within a chat conversation in Microsoft Teams.

Over the past months, we investigated different ways to achieve 2-ways communication between our SharePoint apps and Microsoft Teams. First, we explored a new way to solve problems with instant discussions. Secondly, we looked at adaptive cards to better interact with external stakeholders.

Today, we proudly introduce a new app to search and insert information from BPA directly within a chat conversation in Teams. The app prevents users to switch context away from the discussion, find the needed information in BPA and return back in Teams to continue the conversation.

The BPA List Search App works with desktop, web and mobile versions of Teams. In one click while discussing, allowed users can start the app and search for a specific record in a list. Matching records will be displayed by typing. When selecting a record, an easy-to-read card will be appended in the conversation, showing record information with a button to open contextual details in the BPA software (and BPA software will soon run on Microsoft Teams as well).

For example, you can use the app to retrieve a specific nonconformity while discussing with your compliance team. By opening the nonconformity in BPA, your team gets all details about the current incident. In a different context, while discussing with your sales team, you could search for a specific sales opportunity and share details.

The BPA List Search App brings useful business information to workers on the field or on the shop floor and back-office collaborators, anywhere, on any device, when they need it. The app covers the gap between structured business content (in BPA apps and SharePoint) and unstructured instant discussions in Teams.

As a result, people take faster decisions and organizations, processes become more efficient.

At BPA, we truly believe instant collaboration is becoming the next move in digital transformation.
