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.

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.
