Automate with Precision

Robo-FTP's powerful automation engine gives you the ability to easily automate even the most complex workflows, including robust error handling, reporting, and notification.

Need to monitor a remote directory to download only files that were added since last time you checked, decrypt and rename those files, perform other processing like updating a database—all while re-trying failed connections and downloads and sending email notifications if the failures persist? With Robo-FTP you can do all that and much more!

Easily deploy automated processes that anticipate and handle all the ways things can go wrong (servers going offline, network connections going down, files from remote processes not being ready, etc.). Save valuable resources by replacing brittle processes with Robo-FTP jobs that are truly set-and-forget.
