Are you not getting a good return even though the budget clearly states you’ve been investing through the roof? It could be that your business is getting bogged down by mundane tasks, outdated compliance policies, and mountains of unstructured data.

Lack of processes and automation can lead to wasted time and talent, poor employee satisfaction, and an overall decline in brand reputation.

AI Builder is a part of the Microsoft Power Platform that allows you to leverage artificial intelligence to help optimize your business. Still, you may not have the time or resources to plan, build, and implement processes. Or maybe you have AI Builder but aren’t sure how to use it.

Either way, you could use a team of subject matter experts who can train you and your team to execute processes with AI Builder or let the experts handle the whole thing themselves. Our team at Sparkhound can transform all your disparate data into information that supports more intelligent decision-making, machine learning, and automated business processes.

Automating Menial and Repetitive TasksRobot 1

Question: Do you have people spend time constantly copying and pasting information from thousands of documents all day, every day?

It seems across industries and markets, a significant thorn in the side of IT departments is time and talent wasted on menial tasks to keep up appearances for clients and executive teams. Instructing one employee to copy and paste critical data from excel spreadsheets manually eats up more time and money than an AI bot trained in data extraction.

In a fraction of the time, a team of experts can develop and train an app to track custom data points and extract the necessary information, allowing the other employees to work on more meaningful tasks. Whether it’s simple tasks like pulling info from business cards or heavy load processes like combing through hundreds of thousands of documents for several different data points, having a team of trained experts can do wonders for our business.


How to Create an AI Builder Model

To get started:

  • Go to
  • Click AI Builder on the left-hand side, and a drop-down menu will appear.
    • Click on Models.
  • Click Build a Model on the top left.
    • You are then shown a screen with all the models from both Custom and Pre-Built builds.
    • Select the model you wish to build.
  • A pop-up screen will appear.
    • Enter a Name.
    • The What You’ll Need section shows what info you need to input to create the model.
    • Click Create.
    • You are now taken to a step-by-step interface that asks you to input the data you want to be analyzed and what text language you need.

Now, you’ll be able to find your model in your Power Apps menu by clicking Insert > AI Builder on the top menu of a canvas app. It only takes a few minutes to set up, and no coding is required.

How Much Does AI Builder Cost?

According to a Microsoft forum post, the standard monthly rate is $500. Fortunately, Microsoft provides an AI Builder Calculator where you go through each model and estimate your capacity, like how many business cards you’ll process, how many text strings you’ll analyze, etc.

What Licensing Do I Need?

AI Builder can be purchased if you have a Power Apps, Power Automate, or a Dynamic 365 license.
