Automate and optimize business processes
Reduce Complexity of Tedious File Transfer Tasks
Delivering data using manual processes is vulnerable to workforce limitations, vacations, turnover, and simple human error. Automation allows you to deliver data without manual intervention, saving time and avoiding potential errors. Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) Enterprise and Express enables you to streamline business processes without limitations imposed by legacy systems and applications. With an intuitive interface, administrators can easily create automate file transfers. The following functionality is a part of EFT’s native Event Rule system which is included in EFT Enterprise and as separate add-on modules of EFT Express.
Automate Tasks Easily to Save Time
The File Transfer Client enables EFT admins to define copy, move, and download actions in Event Rules. For example, you could define a rule to trigger when a file is uploaded, so that EFT moves it to another folder.
Monitor Folders and Perform Actions
The Folder Monitor creates an Event Rule trigger used to detect the creation, deletion, and renaming of files in a monitored folder, and to perform Actions based on these triggers. For example, perhaps a weekly report is uploaded to a specific folder. You can define an Event Rule so that when EFT detects that a file has been added to the folder, an email is sent to notify one or more users that the report is available for download.
Set Timed Actions
The Timer allows you to execute a specified Action (e.g., generate and send a report) only one time or to repeat at specified intervals. For example, you could schedule an Action to occur on July 8 at midnight, or every Monday morning, or on the last Friday of every month at 2 a.m.
Monitor Objects in Cloud Storage
(Only available in EFT Enterprise)
With cloud object monitoring, admins can connect natively to Amazon S3 and Azure blobs without scripting, manual browsing, or complexity in setting up connections or integrate natively with cloud storage through EFT without the need for outside integration.
With cloud object monitoring you can:
- Automatically copy/move files arriving at EFT to cloud storage
- Timer rules can download files from cloud storage at set intervals
- Integrate seamlessly with EFT’s other powerful post-processing engine
