A Revolutionary Advance in System Automation

AutoMate BPA Server 9 is a multi-tiered business process automation platform for Windows operating systems. It intelligently separates sophisticated workflow design from the complexity of building detailed automation routines and provides automatized execution and centralized control over processes involving one machine or the entire enterprise. With comprehensive job scheduling, event-based conditions, and robust application development tools, AutoMate BPA enables organizations to facilitate, manage and automate complex operations without writing a line of code.

AutoMate BPA bridges the gap between power and simplicity. At the advanced level, AutoMate BPA provides intuitive workflow tools for creating and managing automated processes. Workflows serve two very important operations. First, they visually represent business processes and information flows so that non-technical managers and IT professionals can jointly view, discern, and even design their processes. Second, workflows contain all the information – the events and schedules that start automation; the tasks and machines that execute automation; and the conditions which control automation flow – that is necessary for their function and management.

In addition to workflows, AutoMate BPA provides an extensive array of tools for creating sophisticated tasks without the need for writing code. This speeds up application development while reducing required expertise, resulting in a vast reduction of costs as well as decreases the troubles and expenditures of maintaining code over the long haul.

AutoMate BPA follows the client–server model of computing, in which one or more server machines are hosts that share their resources with multiple clients. All data is stored on the server, which generally has far greater security controls than most clients. Servers can better control access and resources, to guarantee that only those clients with the appropriate permissions may access and change data. Since data storage is centralized, updates to that data are far easier to administer. This architecture also supplies greater ease of maintenance and enables the roles and responsibilities of a computing system to be distributed among several independent computers.

It is this approach – enterprise automation powered by workflows harnessed with intuitive, "no code" task development – that separates AutoMate BPA Server 9 from any other software product in the market.

Benefits

Business Process Automation, or BPA, is the process a business uses to contain costs. It consists of integrating applications, cutting labor wherever possible throughout the organization. The benefits of business process automation include the elimination of human error, dramatic increases in transaction speeds and consistent and repeatable performance of business processes. In short, business processes can be performed faster and more accurately resulting in lower cost and increased business capability.

AutoMate BPA Server 9 is the leading platform for business process automation because it goes far beyond the simple linking together of pre-existing batch files, scripts, and custom applications. Workflows and tasks are assembled via drag-and-drop, without writing a single line of code. Task steps are displayed in plain English sentences that all team members can understand. This allows automated workflows and tasks to be developed rapidly and maintained easily, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than traditional automation methods.

Cost Savings

AutoMate provides cost savings at each phase of the automation project life-cycle:

Development

An intuitive, drag-and-drop development environment enables you to construct automation workflows and tasks rapidly. No programming code or writing batch files.

Deployment

AutoMate BPA Server 9 orchestrates automation across a network of connected agent machines. You can configure connected agents to execute workflows and tasks with just a few mouse clicks.

Management

AutoMate BPA Server 9 stores all information required for workflow automation internally or, optionally, in a connected database. Users connect to the server to administer, manage, and develop. You can view all workflow execution information and audit events through a robust reporting interface.

Replace Code-Intensive Processes

AutoMate BPA Server 9 is the superior replacement for scripts, batch files, macros, or any other code intensive process. Its easy drag-and-drop interface allows rapid construction and automation of virtually any business or IT process.
