Heartland selected Robot/SCHEDULE and Robot/SCHEDULE Enterprise job scheduling software to manage processing needs across platforms from their iSeries. With a goal of doubling in size every five to seven years, the processing window was a concern. They needed a tool that could grow with their business. "Automation is huge for us to maintain that window," says
Before moving to Robot, Heartland struggled to manage over 400 separate jobs manually, without notifications. Since the switch, they've found it easy to add more jobs and even use Robot for some exclusive Windows tasks. "Upgrades were a nightmare to manage on the Windows scheduler side," says Charles. "We used to go through and take 15 screen prints of jobs we put on hold in the scheduler! Now we can keep track of them on Robot's Schedule Activity Monitor."
For Operations at Heartland, the stability and consistent processing that Robot provides is a key benefit. Not only product reliability, but company stability as well. "Help/Systems is putting funds back into development and enhancing products," explains Charles. "It's good to know that we're with a company that continues to do that. We've watched other products on the market -- there just isn't anything else on the scheduling side that touches what Robot does. It was a no-brainer."
Help/Systems offers a free, 30-day trial of its Robot systems management solution set. The trial includes full product access and free support.
