EFT SMB Automation
Bring automation to Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) SMB


  Manage Your Business
and Let EFT SMB Manage Automate Your Data Processes

Using FTP for manual file transfer processes to move and deliver data can make your organization vulnerable to workforce limitations, vacations, turnover, and simple human error. Automation allows you to move and deliver data without constant manual intervention, saving time and minimizing potential costly errors. EFT SMB can automate the delivery of data when it's needed, instead of when you have time to do it, increasing your day-to-day productivity and overall operational efficiency.

The automation features in EFT SMB provide more control than SFTP servers, and a more efficient and secure data exchange process than FTP, allowing you to automate data exchanges among employees, internal systems, remote offices, suppliers, partners, and customers.

Automate Data Processes
  •   Custom Commands

    The Custom Commands interface built into EFT SMB executes programs, scripts, or batch files with or without command-line arguments, providing administrators almost limitless flexibility.

  •   The Folder Monitor Module

    The Folder Monitor Module 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. You can define an Event Rule so that when EFT SMB 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.

  •   The Timer Module

    The Timer Module allows you to execute a specified Action (e.g., generate and send a report) only one time or to repeat at specified intervals.

  •   The File Transfer Client Module

    The File Transfer Client Module enables EFT SMB admins to define copy, move, and download actions in Event Rules.
