AutoMate: The Best Medicine
Systems Analyst, U of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
"For us, AutoMate combines two very important functionalities: job scheduling/triggering and automation. In our initial effort when we attempted to use Launchpad and AutoIT, we were trying to combine Launchpad's job scheduling functionality with AutoIT's automation capabilities. This was a mistake. What we really needed was one powerful tool that had both the triggering and automation capabilities. In our solution, AutoMate is central to application integration - it orchestrates three critical applications used extensively at MD Anderson Cancer Center, and coordinates thousands of file and data transfers."
Since 2002, the MD Anderson Cancer Center has developed and deployed over 80 automation tasks with AutoMate. Juan calculates a hard-cost savings of approximately .8 of an FTE a year, equivalent to a savings of $150,000 with an ROI of 650% due to implementation of AutoMate tasks, not to mention all the soft costs saved with optimal nurse staffing, fewer administrative hassles, and improved ability to deliver better patient care.
Founded in 1941, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is regularly ranked the No. 1 "Best Hospital" for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report. Making its home in Houston, TX, MD Anderson Cancer Center offers care to more than 100,000 patients annually, and provides more than $215 million in uncompensated care to Texans with cancer.

Chief Technical Officer
"What we find really useful is the power and flexibility of AutoMate. Having all of these automation shortcuts usually eliminates the need for programming, but we also have the option to use Visual Basic scripting when we have a particularly complex set of variables. We purchased the platform to handle a single task, but it has turned out to be a versatile solution that has enabled us to stretch our IT and accounting resources in many ways."
AutoMate was initially purchased to replace legacy job scheduling software because their current solution, Vinzant Software Global ECS, was too costly to maintain. What started as one task to monitor interruptions in overnight report productions, soon progressed into First Credit Union using AutoMate to automatically launch and run 19 schedule tasks as well as to executed eight unscheduled tasks that are triggered manually. According to Frank, AutoMate's efficiency has saved his five-person IT team more than 80 hours a month.
First Credit Union is headquartered in the Vancouver, B.C, metropolitan area and has over 7,100 member-owners, three bank branches, six insurance offices, a wealth management division, and $157 million in assets under management.
Why AutoMate? Orchestrate, Integrate, AutoMate.
The need for automation is clear. As organizations grow so do the complexities of their business processes. Automating these processes allows for better customer service, increased productivity, and the ability to capitalize on new revenue opportunities while lowering total cost of ownership.
These processes can be high level in nature or tactical and targeted. They can span across the organization or focus on functional areas such as the IT department. Regardless of the scope of your core processes the answer is still the same - automation makes business processes faster; more manageable, secure, and efficient; and less prone to error and delay.
AutoMate drives real business value by streamlining business operations without writing a single line of code. Through our intuitive drag and drop interface and large bank of actions and triggers no job is too big to handle.
