Automate IT Processes

IT Process Automation (ITPA) includes tools that can perform tasks that contain any repeatable pattern—tasks that once was handled manually by IT workers.

The most used automation Actions or Flows
Basic
Building Blocks

Each operation is a basic building block that performs a Task, for instance, to print a file, to send an email message, to sync a folder with cloud.

On Schedule
or Event

An automated IT process can be initiated by a Trigger. The process can be launched on schedule, manually, or when a file appears in a folder or remote server.

Runbook Automation

Your IT staff is still performing tasks manually? Runbook Automation or RBA can help you to reduce costs, perform IT tasks faster, and with much less mistakes.

A Self-hosted No-code App

Automation Workshop consists of two parts—a Windows service that runs unattended task workflows, and a no-code GUI app for Task creation.

Triggers to start automatic Tasks or Workflows
No-code Approach

No-code uses a drag-and-drop UI to create automated tasks, in contrast to traditional programming and scripting.

Self-hosted /
On-premises

Using a cloud service is not always an option, especially if the IT process involves local files that need to be printed, transferred, or processed. A self-hosted solution is secure, fast, and your files never leave your premises.

Forget the Steep Learning Curve!

The UI of Automation Workshop is so elegant and awesome. Installation and your first Task deployment will take only a couple minutes.

Automating file operations

If your IT processes involve file management that is handled by human workers, then Automation Workshop can automate them.

Synchronize Directories from a local PC to the selected FTP server
FTP & SFTP Automation

Automate file transfers from and to any FTP server, cloud provider, SAN/NAS, or local network with ease. Full audit and error trail is always available at your fingertips.

Intelligent File Events

Start your IT Processes based on file events. Launch a workflow when a new file appears in a folder or gets deleted. Local, remote, and cloud files—anything!

Automatic File Copying

Seamless, reliable, and unattended automated file transfers. Copy or sync files between clouds, FTPs, virtually anywhere.

See real results…

IT Process Automation using no-code tools is a new paradigm shift. People are creating amazing automated solutions without writing any program code. The automated workflows are created rapidly, thus reducing the initial costs, as well as improving your ROI in the long run.

Improved Efficiency

IT Process Automation (ITPA) is using software to streamline workflows by reducing the amount of time and work needed to perform operations, thus reducing operating costs.

Decreased Error Rate

Humans tend to make mistakes. The Automation Workshop App does not sleep, does not need vacations, and it performs automated jobs flawlessly and seamlessly.

Manual Process Automatized

Automation apps help you to create tasks and workflows to replace boring and repetitive manual processes. Servers, workstations, or a cloud can be automated.

RPA vs Traditional Automation

RPA or Robotic Process Automation is used to emulate a human worker. In contrast to Traditional Automation, RPA requires especially trained workers.

Robotic Process Automation

RPA usually emulates human input by moving mouse cursor, clicking mouse buttons, and entering text into on-screen forms like a real human worker.

Traditional Automation

Automating file transfers with RPA is like trying to use a screwdriver to drive in nails. Traditional Automation is a perfect tool to automate file transfers of any complexity—local or remote.

Secure & Auditable

Automation Workshop supports all the latest security standards—SSL, TLS, and SSH for secure and automated file transfers, or AES-256 for file encryption.

No-code, low-code, zero-code…

No-code, low-code, and zero-code denotes how much programming knowledge is necessary to operate an app. Automation Workshop does not require programming or scripting.

Automated Task with Actions workflow
Low-code

Low-code is a software development approach that is using visual tools to write a computer program. It usually requires programming knowledge.

No-code or Zero-code

Automation Workshop can be used by people that lack any software development experience. You don't need to know any programming language to create your custom automation solutions.

Experience Matters!

Automation Workshop is crafted by programmers and engineers with more than 20 years of experience in automation. It is rock solid under any load!
