Automate the manual repeated steps
Currently we are using cloud and on-premises applications ; in a hybrid world we need to transfer data both ways. This tools covers both secured and un-secured processes seamlessly. File transfer between our remote offices and internal servers are a big plus. Emails for process validation is very vital and helping us for the manual actions if needed.
Very user friendly; using it for a long time, never or very little tweaks to the earlier tasks to maintain. Automation makes their product also automatically compatible with the new updates and fixes. What more we can ask. Once the templates are created, they can be used for similar tasks at ease.
Very hard to dislike, if you see what I like the best, as most of the software fails because of so many external factors, but this product nailed it.
Automate and INFOR Visual
Automation of various processes in our INFOR Visual ERP system including generating invoices, running costing utilities, and MRP. Automate is also used to schedule report generation in the ERP system.
Easy to program and test.
Automate integrates well with INFOR Visual to automate manual keystrokes and mouse clicks to facilitate report generation and printing as well as tasks that are manually labor-intensive.
There are some tricky nuances to using Automate to handle error conditions, but once these are understood, the error handling features in Automate make programming around these issues simple.
Managing, writing and testing Windows client operations as part of the automation process.
Very good tool for executing GUI and windows based operations, the tool can be completely independent and the code writing skills can be average
The tool is very sensitive in terms of background applications and warnings.
A major difficulty was also the resolution change which caused failures.
Very functional and does all the things you are looking for.
Cut menial work tasks by hours
Does automate task and does many features you did not know that can be automated. Connects to ftp site and automatically transmits files. Uses encryption protocols to encrypt files. There are way too many features to be able to list as a pro. If you do a lot of menial tasks daily, having this will shorten work time tremendously.
Program sometimes hangs. Sometimes does not automate processes. If you are new to using, will take some time to get used to. Menus are a little confusing sometimes
Overall using Automate with BPA Server has been positive and has helped us automate many processes
The range of actions that can be automated, the pop-up dialogs that allow building tasks without learning or using the scripting language, and the flexible workflow options.
It has a somewhat arcane user interface, and the documentation (online), while thorough, is somewhat lacking. There's a dearth of "how-to" examples.
Great RMM tool
There are a lot integrations available for this tool, support is great and training and onboarding are available.
You need the onboarding process to get this in place, the program is resource intensive. It can look complicated when compared to other RMMtools.
Automate makes automating tedious processes easy
Since its purchase it helped us already to automate quite a few different processes both with emails and files.
Automate does it all, from automating email processes, data scraping, to importing and exporting data from different sources into datasets, manipulate those and send them on to different destinations.
I think some more samples could be useful. The initial selection available at Helpdesks website touches on a lot of things, but could be a little bit more in-depth.
