Centralized Management

Automate Plus creates a platform for the development, management, and execution of coordinated business processes across multiple machines. The Server Management Console (SMC) within Automate Plus provides centralized management and administration for all of the automated assets (workflows, tasks, users, servers, and agents) in a distributed network. In an increasingly mobile business world, it’s important to be able to monitor automation assets anytime, anywhere.

The SMC and web-based interfaces allow users to view and manage assets on any mobile or desktop device equipped with a browser. The SMC comes with a Workflow Designer, a tool to help users view and link processes together into a graphical flowchart.

Users can view automation processes in real time, including CPU usage, connected agents, pending tasks, and workflows.

The Workflow Designer in Automate Plus provides an intuitive, graphical representation of an automated process.




Enhanced Enterprise-Grade Security Features

As automation requirements grow, the need for security increases. Selecting an enterprise-grade solution like Automate Plus allows enhanced security features for compliance and security purposes. Build more secure bots with greater control over user access and workflows and by keeping a detailed audit history.

User Access Controls 

Determine the authority rights for every individual, team, and department in your organization and give them permission to only necessary workflows and agents. Access can be granted down to the workflow level.

Credential Management

Securely save credentials for easy access while building out automated workflows. Includes the ability to obscure the value of variables and credentials to certain users with secure variables and secure credentials.

Change History & Notifications

Every step in the workflow creation is recorded in Automate Plus process audit logs, and changes made to these workflows are recorded for auditing purposes. Notifications are key for organizations with business-critical SLAs and can help prevent a disaster if there is a system outage, network issue, or change made to a component of the workflow.

Custom Logs

Custom logging can be used to aggregate, monitor and manage business specific workflow log information you may want to gather such as: FTP transfer statistics, file processing and throughput metrics, and more. Custom logs can be created in text files, spreadsheets or a database such as SQL Server, DB2, Oracle, or Microsoft access.

Object-Level Revision Management

When an object, such as a workflow, task, condition, or process is changed, a revision is created from the previous version of the object and stored in the database. Compare two revisions with a helpful difference report. Users can also restore revisions and use previous versions or delete revisions to declutter the list of available options. With object-level revision management, permissions can be set to restrict the ability to delete and restore revisions.

Recycle Bin

When an object, such as a workflow, task, condition or process is deleted, it is moved into the Recycle Bin for that object type. Objects in the Recycle Bin can be restored back to the repository it was deleted from. And items can be permanently removed from the system by deleting them in the Recycle Bin.
