Do you use multiple systems that don't talk to each other? Need to get information from a legacy system into a new system or vice versa?
In the ideal world every system you use in your company would be tightly integrated, there would be no duplication of data and you could get all the info you needed from one screen. Unfortunately this isn't always the case.
All around the world employees are wasting precious time retyping data into ERP systems, web forms, and other in-house applications that are incompatible with each other. Even though it may be possible technically to interface directly with the underlying databases this usually requires specialist IT knowledge and it may be difficult to prioritise resource from the IT department or considered too expensive to hire in outside help. And in many cases, especially with legacy systems, the database may be proprietary, undocumented and the vendor may not even be in business any more.
New business partnerships often bring with them the problem of integrating data from two completely different systems. Asking your employees to re-key data they've already entered, or access two screens to gather information means added complexity and unaffordable delays.
While the long term aim may be to replace the old systems or implement low level interfaces this may require a large budget, and time spent waiting for the IT resource to be allocated, and then the long wait before the new system or interfaces are implemented. Surely there's a quicker way?
There is. Macro Scheduler can automate any Windows user interface by simulating a user. And by being able to scrape the screen and recognise visual screen elements graphically it can be made to automate a user interface robustly and safely. Macro Scheduler scripts can grab data from one application and plug that data into another. Or data can be read from SQL data sources, Excel and CSV files to then be input directly into an application's user interface. By automating form filling disparate systems can be connected together at the user interface level.
With Macro Scheduler user interfaces can be automated without any specialist IT knowledge. By automating the user interface data can be extracted and input directly into the screens that the user would normally interract with, bypassing the need to work at the database level and removing the need for specialist skills or expensive consultants. Indeed for legacy applications this may be the only solution available.
