We use WinAutomation to conduct repetitive tasks daily before our staff is in the office. We have built robots that aggregate data from online servers, a process that data into usable formats, and to automate software that doesn't have built-in automation functions. We have used it to automate a lengthy daily process that processes raw customer address data into USPS-ready coded data, ready for our daily printing and mailing business.
  • Automates repetitive tasks
  • Easy to configure
  • Flexible to allow for more complicated automation
  • Notifies me when a process has failed
  • Could watch for and dismiss standard software updates or maintenance notices.
  • FTP functionality is useful but complicated
  • Occasionally loses track of application windows
WinAutomation is the perfect way to reproduce lengthy repetitive tasks so that they can be completed without user intervention when systems are otherwise not at peak usage. It is a rock-solid way to ensure those tasks get done, freeing up staff and IT resources for processes that require manual intervention during normal business hours.
There are great online support documents and helpful tutorials.

We use WinAutomation to monitor our client FTP folders. When a client posts a file to our FTP site, WinAutomation notices that the file is there, then kicks off a data processing job and posts the file back to the FTP folder for the client to pick up. We also use WinAutomation to perform some data scraping jobs of Java enabled web sites. We set WinAutomation to mimic the clicks a user would make on a web page to get the data we want to extract.
  • WinAutomation is great at Monitoring FTP Folders for new files
  • WinAutomation is great at mimicking the clicks a user would make on a web site to extract data
  • WinAutomation is great at running through job tasks utilizing multiple programs
  • WinAutomations web extraction of data within the source code of a web site is lacking and took a lot of creativity on my part to be able to get my task accomplished.
  • Would prefer if I had the option of web browsers in data extraction jobs.
  • Sometimes the program is slow to start.
WinAutomation is great at web data extraction jobs where you need to go through steps on a web site to get to the data you are after. You can use WinAutomation to click buttons, move the mouse, send specific key combinations. WinAutomation is also good for ftp monitoring and automating jobs that use many programs.
I really have had a need to contact Win Automation support, but when I do google how to do a task, Win Automation has an extensive message board with a broad number of topics and questions answered where I could see how other people were able to solve similar problems to the ones I have.

We use WinAutomation to schedule various tasks such as updating and sending various files to vendors, importing files into various databases and distributing reports/files to internal departments. Only the IT department uses this application but other departments benefit from it.
  • Extremely easy to use. Easy to see what exactly is going happen and easy to troubleshoot.
  • Lots of versatility when it comes to what can be scheduled and automated.
  • Licensing can randomly lose the license key and need to be reapplied.
  • Secure FTP commands need to be revamped as some FTP sites will not connect via SFTP.
If you have file manipulation, repetitive browser tasks, or the distribution of files or email, then WinAutoamtion is an excellent fit. You do not need a lot of technical background to create practically any kind of script. The application is designed in a very straightforward process.
I have only had to contact support at WinAutomation one time. Response time was a few hours and their instructions were easy to follow.
