Automate, Monitor, and Manage Innovative Processes


RPA or Workload Automation?

RPA tools automate simplistic, repetitive tasks by interacting with user-interfaces (UI). As a result, minor changes to a UI often result in broken processes. This technical debt prevents businesses from developing reliable processes, puts additional pressure on IT, and increases operational costs.

Workload automation (WLA) is a popular alternative to RPA for several reasons. Because WLA interacts programmatically with applications and systems, WLA solutions offer a much broader scope of process automation with greater efficiency and reliability.

With ActiveBatch Workload Automation, IT can orchestrate and simplify complex processes, building resilient, end-to-end workflows that connect databases, IT infrastructure, and business applications.

 

ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library

Automate Accounting Processes with Confidence

ActiveBatch's Integrated Jobs Library provides hundreds of no-code, platform-neutral tasks and API connections.

Visualize your workflows, run simulations, and optimize processes from an integration and automation hub, ensuring end-users get their data on time, all the time.

  • Automate processes for reporting, risk management, vendor invoice processing, accounts receivable, finance functions, and more

  • ​Integrate Microsoft platforms, cloud services, enterprise resource planning (ERP systems), business process management (BPM), and data processing and BI tools

  • Secure managed file transfers: SFTP, FTPS, and more, with advanced file event triggers and parallel transfer capabilities


Monitoring and Alerting

Integrate and consolidate your point solutions, legacy job schedulers, and in-house automation tools. Then monitor and manage processes across the enterprise using real-time views into all instances, workflows, and environments.

  • Analyze data and workflow progress, from high-level dashboards to detailed, in-depth analyses and reports for the accounting department

  • Prevent overruns on critical processes with automated SLA Monitoring

  • Access in-depth reports that make it easy to optimize the IT environment

  • Resolve issues in record time with automated alerting and detailed logging – or, avoid those issues altogether with auto-remediation

 

Policy-Driven Governance

Where Digital Transformation Meets the Digital Workforce

Frequently Asked Questions

As in many industries where automation has taken a foothold, accounting will benefit from automation by freeing employees from tedious, manual tasks. In accounting, automation is being used for account reconciliations, run reports, complete forms, and processing invoice data. Instead of manually crunching numbers and adding those numbers into spreadsheets, accountants are able to spend more time on tasks that require judgement, creativity, and strategic thinking to better serve clients. Explore ActiveBatch’s automation capabilities.

ActiveBatch is a workload automation and enterprise job scheduling platform. ActiveBatch is used to automate many of the same tasks that RPA tools can automate but provides many additional features and capabilities that enable users to develop, monitor, and manage their processes. ActiveBatch includes advanced date/time scheduling, event triggers, resource provisioning, reporting, and much more, enabling users to automate and incorporate tasks into end-to-end workflows. See what you can automate with ActiveBatch.

RPA implementations automate simple, repetitive tasks by engaging the user-interfaces (UI) of other applications. Workload automation software integrates programmatically with applications for end-to-end processes that are much more reliable and stable. RPA software robots can be used to automate manual, rules-driven tasks whereas WLA is used to orchestrate processes across the enterprise, using machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize machine resources in real time.
