Is Power Apps right for a Small Business?

What size business do you have to be before Power Apps & Model Driven Power Apps becomes cost effective?

 

This is the question I am struggling to determine.

 

Use Case 6 Users with Microsoft 365 Business Standard in a small business with a small turnover. Replacing a unreliable Access Database on a local shared drive.

 

System would be somewhat of a CRM with Accounts, Contacts, History, Notes, Quotes & Jobs entities, File Storage as well as a reminder system

 

Ive been looking at Dynamics CRM, a Power App utilising Dataverse but these solution are way out of price range or have limited capacity (3gb) before charges go through the roof

 

Any thoughts or comments greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

Hi @Tango ,

I look after a substantial Power Apps / SharePoint facility for a large company using Canvas and SharePoint Integrated Apps. We have a couple of Premium licences for some Flows, but other than that everything has been possible on a standard licence - we have several lists and libraries with over 50k items.

Thank you @WarrenBelz, Are you saying a combination of Sharepoint & Power Apps?

Hi @Tango ,

Yes that (and Power Automate with mainly standard connectors - see original note) is what is used for everything.
