What is Automation Anyway?
We might assume that task automation is common knowledge, but we must appreciate that some people have never heard of it, yet they might need it the most. Automating your daily tasks is possible through robotic process automation, or RPA in short. RPA is a form of technology that is based on artificial intelligence or metaphorical software robots.
Automation Workshop is different from your typical RPA. Whereas RPA works by watching and recording users perform tasks before performing automation by repeating the tasks, Automation Workshop has a list of actions to automate your Windows tasks. With Automation Workshop, all you have to do is download the software and command it to perform specific tasks.
The explanation above might sound like technical jargon for the non-techies, so let's give you a simpler explanation. Task automation is simply using software to minimize manual handling of repetitive tasks. Have a list of invoices you have to send to the accounts department on specific dates and time? You can automate this task using Automation Workshop.
Automation Workshop is designed to be used by coders and non-coders. You do not need prior coding knowledge to use this tool. Rightfully, the assumption is that anyone who performs tasks like automating FTP downloads has some coding knowledge. But if you delegate these tasks to a non-coder, they'll still perform the automation smoothly.
There are several explainer video demos for first-time users of this software. You can also go through additional resources to help you understand the inner-workings of the software and therefore make the best out of it.
Automate Tasks like FTP Upload
Efficiency is key in improving the overall productivity of a department or an enterprise as a whole. What you manually do in 8 hours can be done in half the time through a good automation tool like Automation Workshop. All you have to do is give the software the right commands to direct the right triggers.
If you're running a business, you know how it can be time consuming. Every bit of action or process needs your attention. Yet, like any other human being, you only have 24 hours a day. Automating everyday tasks is one of the easy ways of freeing up your time to attend to more demanding tasks. Some of the tasks you can automate using Automation Workshop include:
- Automate FTP
- Automate SFTP
- Send email automatically
- Automate S3 synchronization
- Automate FTP upload
- Automate WebDAV
- Automate FTP download
- Automate FTP sync
- Automate FTPS

You will be amazed at the amount of time you'll save through this automation tool. According to McKinsey, automation can free up 30% of the time spent on performing daily tasks. In addition, your organization will also improve team efficiency and productivity.
Wonder which specific tasks can be automated in a business setting? You can automate finance, lead management, administrative, human resources, and marketing tasks. Overall, about 45% of business tasks can be automated through artificial intelligence and machine learning.
An Example of How Automation Works
Let us take an example of FTP and SFTP uploads or downloads. If you have to upload specific files to a server on a daily basis, it can take you a lot of time.
Instead of manually uploading files to the server, you can automate the entire process using Automation Workshop. By automating FTP or SFTP, you can automatically transfer files between remote computers through the Internet.

Five Key Benefits of Using Automation
One of the reasons why you need Automation Workshop is that Windows doesn't come with its own macro recorder. This automation software can automate many tasks across the Windows operating system. You can automate FTP, SFTP, FTPS, FTP sync, S3 synchronization, WebDAV, FTP upload, FTP download, and file deletion on FTP server.
You can send emails automatically. The tool also allows you to automate your backups, monitor files and folders, and automatically zip or unzip files. These combined automation processes yield several benefits to organizations or enterprises.
1. Cutting Costs
High production costs may hinder prospects of making profits or breaking even. One of the approaches to maximizing profits is by reducing operating costs. Automation of repetitive tasks means less human resources required, and therefore less labor costs. The free time created for the personnel can be used to scale up the business, increasing prospects of more profits.
2. Increasing Productivity
Proper utilization of Automation Workshop will not only minimize production costs, but also cut down the time used for specific processes. The time saved can be used to produce more.
A comparison of manual execution of tasks and automated tasks shows that, given the same time of operation with human personnel, automation will yield more results. Furthermore, with automation, human errors are avoided. The computer can continue to run the automated tasks unattended.
As the operator, you can handle other tasks as the computer continues to run other tasks automatically. Automation Workshop therefore enables you to perform numerous tasks simultaneously.
There is no better way of utilizing employees' time while still making it possible for them to take breaks. Automation therefore can be used to increase employees' satisfaction by reducing their workload, ultimately boosting their productivity.
Automation softwares has the capabilities to ramp up quickly to match workload peaks or increase in orders. Any big demand spikes can be handled by the software. This means automation is one of the best approaches for firms to increase their productivity.
3. Increasing Reliability
Humans are prone to fatigue, stress at work, distractions, or other workplace obstacles that kill motivation or minimize focus. Ultimately, the output of human personnel is prone to errors, errors that can severely affect the overall performance of a business.
Computers and software give you what you feed them. And with an automation software like Automation Workshop, automated tasks will be accomplished without errors. With the superb inbuilt error handling options, Automation Workshop is your go-to automation software if you're looking for a reliable automation tool.
The cornerstone of any IT operation is reliability. Automation software guarantees you reliability. For example, you can rely on Automation Workshop to upload specific files to the server at assigned time and date.
Essentially, automation gives you a guarantee that tasks will not be forgotten, that jobs run sequentially, and that prerequisite tasks are accomplished before succeeding tasks are triggered. Automation Workshop can perform multiple complex tasks intelligently based on predefined parameters.
4. Save Time
This is an obvious benefit of automation. An automation tool will handle more tasks in less time, compared to similar workload assigned to human personnel. Furthermore, the human personnel may need additional time for breaks, correcting errors, and manually collaborating with other sections or departments.
5. Improve Efficiency
One of the key benefits of automation software is increased efficiency. Through a tool like Automation Workshop, it is easy to audit the number of tasks that have been executed within a specific period, and how they have been performed.
The data is readily available for every automated process. You can identify any unnecessary or broken workflows and modify them to produce the desired results. You'll also be in a position to make data-led decisions for your business.
