About skybow

How do you differ from the Microsoft Power Platform?
Microsoft Power Apps and skybow differ significantly in terms of complexity and licensing. skybow's low-code platform is user-friendly and easy-to-use, making it possible to build individual solutions in a fraction of the time. In contrast, experienced developers are needed to develop solutions with Microsoft Power Apps.

Microsoft Power Apps has an highly complex licensing model with hidden costs, making even small apps expensive to build. skybow offers an individualized price that adapts to customer requirements without additional or hidden costs.

skybow is significantly cheaper, easier to use (even for end users), adapts to individual needs, and can be used without experienced developers.
How big is the technology lock when choosing skybow?
skybow has minimal technology lock-in because it relies entirely on SharePoint, ensuring its functionality is tightly integrated with SharePoint's own features. This guarantees compatibility with any changes made to SharePoint, allowing users to continue using SharePoint without worrying about compatibility issues or being locked into a specific technology.
I only need a very small solution. Isn't skybow too powerful for that?
Especially small companies must be very efficient with the resources they have. Therefore, it is even more worthwhile to digitalize manual, time-consuming and error-prone processes with skybow.

skybow makes companies more productive, as digitized processes run 100% reliably, freeing up time to focus on core business.
What makes skybow unique?
skybow's unique feature is the ability to digitize individual business processes quickly and easily, regardless of company size or industry.

It is an intuitive and user-friendly low-code platform with drag and drop features that is always responsibly designed by default. This means that end-users love working with it and hardly need any onboarding. In addition, skybow adapts flexibly to individual needs, grows with the company and the changes of the digitized process, and can be used on all devices.

Compared to other low code tools like the Microsoft Power Platform, skybow offers a straightforward and easy to understand licence model.
How does the onboarding of my employees for the new solution work?
If your team is already using SharePoint, there is hardly any onboarding required, as skybow is seamlessly integrated into SharePoint, so end users will use the familiar UI of SharePoint in your new app.

But even if SharePoint is new for your team, we have developed an extremely efficient onboarding concept. With the help of this, users are ready to use the new digital workflows and apps in no time.
How much does a custom solution cost?
The cost of your solution depends on the number of end-users who will be using it, rather than the number of users building the solution. skybow provides fully customized solutions that fit all individual needs, and therefore offers very individual pricing.

Customers will only pay for what they need.

What exactly does low-code platform mean?
Our platform is very user-friendly and does not require a developer to digitize workflows.

You can easily simplify the process by using drag and drop functions in our "what you see is what you get" editor.

In some cases, a fraction of code can be used to customize workflows or forms, but these functions can be adopted by power users.

If needed, you can always arrange an expert call – we are happy to help.
Do I need an extra SharePoint license to use skybow?
skybow is seamlessly integrated with SharePoint and can only be used in combination with it. But don't worry! If you have a Microsoft365 license, SharePoint is already included.

So, if you use Microsoft Teams in your company, you already have SharePoint and there are no extra costs for using it.
What unique functionalities does skybow provide that are not included in SharePoint by default?
SharePoint's default capabilities are limited, especially when it comes to tasks such as form styling, intelligent field addition, and workflow creation. This often requires either extensive coding or combining multiple tools, even for basic projects.

skybow offers easy and quick digitization of processes in SharePoint through drag and drop editors and action builders. It also provides extensive customization options for form design and additional actions. So you can create your workflows faster, better and quickly adapt them to changes.
What is the difference between Solution Studio and Modern Forms Designer?
If you use the Modern Forms Designer, you work directly in your own SharePoint. This means that you make changes to the live environment, so to speak. If you change forms, actions or automations there, these are implemented directly and visible to all your end users. If you are a user of the Solution Studio, additional functions are available to you. Here you are not directly in the live environment.

This means that you can build, adapt and perfect forms, workflows, actions and automations at your leisure until you are happy with your result. Afterwards you can test your solution in detail. If everything works as desired, you can easily publish the result of your work to the SharePoint tenant. Then it will also be visible to all other end users. You can also create customzied solutions for different target groups or departments and easily manage all your deployments from the Solution Studio.
