這套軟體是目前市面上同類軟體裡功能最強的自動巨集，可以讓你指定電腦自動執行多個程式，例如退出系統、上網、執行資料庫，打開檔案等。使用者可以讓它執行 那些枯燥的任務，例如檔案備份、自動 FTP、綜合或列印報告等。使用者無須任何程式設計的經驗，只需要在 AutoMate 的嚮導精靈的協助下就可以建立新的進程。該程式還支援以下功能：自動壓縮檔案、增強的參數變數、「IF」的條件批次處理、增強的記錄，與 BASIC更緊密的整合，支援內嵌公式以及錯誤任務提示等。該版本支援新的檔案觸發系統，當檔案被修改後可以做出適當的變化，也支援鍵盤操作和改善了錯誤 提示，更新了 HTML 格式的使用說明和修正了錯誤。
AutoMate 在自動化技術的中型市場中代表一個重大的飛躍。這是一個具有說服力的投資，可確保傳遞業務價值並提高在所有垂直市場組織的投資回報率。隨著企業尋求方法來降低成本、提高效率，他們始終因使用各種腳本、批次處理文件、macros 和其他可執行的自動化任務之複雜性而功虧一簣。如果沒有一個強有力的自動化平台，可提供一個易於使用的、終端到終端的解決方案，則 IT 和業務流程的自動化將變得難以實現和付出高昂的維護費用。

Web Browser Task Automation
Automate can streamline website interaction with automated navigation, input, extraction, and more. When you build your processes, three types of actions are available:
- Browser actions. Includes opening and closing the browser, navigating through pages, and extracting page data.
- Interactivity actions. Important for automating elements that are not HTML-based, like "Save As" dialogue or an Adobe Flash element.
- Input actions. Includes keystrokes, mouse movements, clicks, and copy/paste.
Data Scraping and Extraction
Automate’s sophisticated data extraction, transformation, and transport tools keep your critical data moving without the need for tedious manual tasks or custom script writing. Automate data extraction can be used with:
- Web browsers
- Excel, PDF, CSV, OCR
Report Generation and Distribution
With Automate, you can do so much more with worksheets to manipulate data and automate reporting across your organization. With Automate you can:
- Pull data from numerous sources including Excel, Crystal Reports, SQL, an ERP system, web services, or others.

Terminal Emulation Automation
Automate goes beyond simple screen scraping, and can extract data files, databases, spreadsheets, or applications and enter it into a terminal session. After you pull data from a terminal window, Automate can write it into a variety of useful formats, such as:
- CSV files
- OpenDocument spreadsheets
Automate has a number of native integrations with Microsoft applications such as Excel, SharePoint, ActiveDirectory, and more, enabling businesses to integrate with disparate applications across their network. Unleash the power of these integrations with a comprehensive automation platform. Automate provides the capability to automate a variety of business and IT processes on a single platform.

Event Log Monitoring
Automate takes system monitoring to the next level, allowing a corrective process to be automatically triggered when a problem is detected. For example, Automate can trigger the task when a system or process threshold (such as CPU utilization or memory usage) is met. If available memory is too low, a task can automatically restart the entire system or specific process. And Automate maintains an Event Log where you can see:
- Whether a task ran successfully or failed
- The date/time a task started and ended
- The machine name where the task ran
Automated Batch Processing
Automate multi-machine, cross-platform batch processes in distributed networks. Automate enables sophisticated automation development without the need for writing and managing code to greatly reduce development costs and timelines, and to make ongoing maintenance and management of automated tasks easy. Automate's visual taks design system allows IT professionals to build tasks via drag-and-drop without writing scripts, batch files, or custom programs.
- Automate multiple batch processes with one solution
- Write batch files without code using our prebuilt automation building blocks
- Save time by allowing routine batch jobs to be kicked off, executed, and monitored by Automate
