Get Back to Strategic Initiatives

When you’re able to automate all your workflows across your Windows, UNIX, Linux, and IBM i systems, your IT team has more time to tackle more strategic projects that impact the bottom line.

Simplify Job Schedule Management

Bring isolated job schedules from cron or Windows Task Scheduler enterprise-wide. When your job scheduling software integrates with your other key software applications, it’s easier to see the whole picture, leverage data across the organization, and unify your job schedules.

Implement Back-End Processes Faster

Be more efficient so you can meet your workload automation goals. Automated job scheduling makes your life easier and transforms the way you do business.

“We use a lot of good products, but the level of service that Skybot provides is unprecedented.”

Key Features

Dynamic enterprise job scheduling

easily build dynamic job schedules

Your enterprise job schedule is complex, but you don’t have time to write unique scripts to automate every job that doesn’t fit a neat and tidy pattern. With limitless options for scheduling jobs, Skybot Scheduler helps you build dynamic, event-driven job schedules across servers and take dependencies into account—supporting your business goals with better workflows.

High availability for maintaining SLAs

high availability (HA) job scheduler

Keep IT processes running smoothly so customers are always satisfied. Skybot Scheduler offers high availability for a master server and a standby server so if an outage were to occur, important tasks would continue as usual.

Role-based security and audit history reporting

generate audit history reports for compliance

Role-based security options and audit history reporting help you and auditors know exactly who changed your job schedule and when it was changed, giving you total visibility into job production streams.

Automatic notifications

monitor job schedule and get notified of problem

Customized notification lists within the job scheduler alert you and a designated team of any deviations in your schedule via email or text message. You can also have important job logs and files sent to stakeholders for review before any additional processing or distribution continues.
