RPA and COVID-19
Before the global COVID-19 pandemic, businesses were using RPA as a key link in their digital transformation. Now though, it’s become much more tactical. They are implementing pragmatic, quick solutions to handle manual processes whilst staff are absent.
Some solutions deliver this better than others. Automate from HelpSystems clearly stands out from the competition in this respect.
Some other products restrict the type of tasks or number of tasks a bot can deliver. But that’s not the case with Automate. Bots are completely unrestricted.
You don’t need programming skills to use Automate. The drag-and-drop functionality makes it easy to automate tasks. The form-based development means non-programmers can expand it beyond the out-of-box functionality with minimal understanding of coding concepts.
Users can pay upfront or opt for a subscription, depending on what they anticipate their requirements to be.
Did you know you there’s a web-based analytics platform that monitors multiple file transfer solutions from one dashboard? It makes compliance audits, SLA monitoring and troubleshooting so much easier.
Users get visibility of their entire file transfer infrastructure. Plus they can set up different departments – like HR or finance – to monitor their own transfers. This reduces the reliance on IT, saving support time and costs.
The MFT analytics solution we recommend is the Business Activity Monitor (BAM). It’s a great upsell opportunity for your customers using HelpSystems GoAnywhere, Globalscape EFT, Progress MOVEit or IBM Sterling, or a combination.
Benefits of BAM include:
- Real-time visibility in one place
- Streamlined file transfer monitoring infrastructure
- Simplified and reliable SLA management
- Faster problem detection and resolution
- Reduced support time and cost
- Self-service capabilities to end users
We have on-demand webinars demonstrating BAM in use with Globalscape EFT, Progress MOVEit and HelpSystems GoAnywhere MFT. Please email me if you would like access to these.
You can also get in touch to discuss a customer requirement or arrange a quote.
- HelpSystems release GoAnywhere MFT 6.5 this week. We’ll share a summary of the main changes with our next update.
- Progress have just released MOVEit 2020 and our technical team are reviewing the updates.
If any of your customers need any help upgrading, please get in touch. We are authorised to deliver professional services for some of our resellers and can discuss others on a case-by-case basis.
