Why Node1?

For more than 10 years Node1 has been a reliable partner in IT, providing both your business and IT department with maximum support. With our smart business apps & office bots we also show that modernizing your application landscape can be done quickly and affordably.

Your current Microsoft 365 environment & licenses as a foundation

In most cases, we use Microsoft Dynamics 365, supplemented by Microsoft Power Platform for extensions and integrations. Apart from the extensive functionality, a major advantage is that both platforms integrate seamlessly with your Microsoft 365 environment, so that things like user rights and data management are already taken care of, and existing User Interfaces can be reused.

For separate Power Platform implementations, the required licenses are often also largely already covered in your existing Microsoft 365 or Dynamics 365 licenses, making the total additional licensing costs for the smart apps & bots then very low.

Adjacent business applications are all linked

Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform have hundreds of connectors, which can easily create links with other non-Microsoft applications, such as Sales Force, DocuSign, Slack, Adobe Create Cloud, Hubspot, SAP, Twilio and ServiceNow, for example. And for other applications, we can otherwise create a "custom" connector.

And even with outdated business applications without digital links (APIs), we can connect, without having to modify them. For this, we then implement a smart office bot that, using 'UI Automation', simply operates the screens of the application, as normally your people would.

Quickly implemented and easily maintainable

The platforms we use to implement our solutions are 'low-code' platforms. This ensures that development is not only faster, but also more iterative, allowing 'draft' versions to be shown and tested with end users at an early stage.

In addition, the maintenance costs with these types of platforms are also relatively low. On the one hand because solutions are easy to modify and extend, and on the other hand because the underlying 'pro-code' functionality is maintained -and also continuously improved and extended- by Microsoft and UiPath themselves.

We guide the entire process

At the start of our cooperation, we set up an 'onboarding' schedule with recurring alignment meetings, planning sessions and 'review & release' meetings, and we guide your stakeholders from Business and IT in their role in this.

Furthermore, we ensure continuous alignment between Business and IT, with regard to which business wishes are (already) being picked up from the regular IT roadmap and which wishes will be the domain of our smart business apps & office bots.

No worries with IT

Finally, we ensure that IT remains fully in control with regard to governance, privacy and security. The important thing here is that many things remain as they are, because we make use of the already established foundations of your Microsoft 365 environment, such as your accounts in Azure AD (now Microsoft Entra ID) and rights in SharePoint.

For additional issues, such as creating and setting up development, test and production environments, we will fully guide your IT department.
