Advanced Workflow Engine Module

With file transfer at the center of so many business-critical processes, security is only the first aspect of a much greater IT concern. When information consumers in your organization rely on manual and intermittent batch processes to deliver the data they need, day-to-day productivity becomes dangerously vulnerable to manpower limitations, vacations, turn-over, and simple human error.

Automate and Optimize Business Processes

Advanced Workflow Engine module (AWE) enables system architects to streamline business and IT processes without the limitations imposed by legacy systems and applications. AWE greatly extends the capabilities of EFT with event-driven, real-time processing of over 200 automated actions. While AWE automatically handles daily tasks, system architects can turn their attention to tomorrow’s business needs rather than today’s task list.
  • Reduce time spent on repetitive manual processes
    and monitoring operations
  • Accelerate the flow of business-critical information
  • Reduce human errors and delays

Create Sophisticated Workflows with Ease

With AWE's intuitive workflow programming interface, application development requires less time and less training. Administrators can easily create sophisticated automation and integration workflows without the need for code, scripting, or complicated batch files.
  • Over 200 built-in actions
  • Easily drag-and-drop or fill-in-the-blank to customize commands
  • Sequence actions with logical statements and execution order

Key Features

Sophisticated Workflow Decision-Making

AWE provides tools for conditional branching and decision-making within workflows. Common decision variables include the existence or nonexistence of a file, size or date of a file, whether a process is running or not, etc.

Rule-Based File Automation

Working in conjunction with EFT, AWE offers tools for applying rules and executing processes on files. Capabilities include: copying, moving, deleting, compressing, decompressing, encrypting, decrypting, folder synchronization and backup, and much more.
