Business process automation is essential
Whether it's to save time and money or because new corporate mandates (or government regulations) demand it, manual processes are being replaced by automated processes.
...but drag 'n' drop solutions fall short on power and flexibility
The marketplace is crowded with drag 'n' drop solutions that are great for interactive use, but offer only limited flexibility for automation. Even very expensive workflow automation solutions that provide sophisticated GUIs for automation fall short as soon as you try to do something that doesn't fit exactly into a limited set of templates.
...and custom solutions are time-consuming and hard to maintain.
Perl, C#, VB, and other programming languages offer a great deal of power in the hands of a skilled developer, but the learning curve and overhead involved in building and maintaining a solution from scratch can be very expensive.
Robo-FTP bridges that gap.
Robo-FTP provides a simple script language focused on automating FTP file transfers and related operations. Even sophisticated workflows involving zip/unzip, PGP encryption, e-mail notification, custom file naming, and connecting to multiple FTP servers with different protocols can be automated with a simple script.
