Skybot Job Scheduler Stabilizes and Streamlines Financial Transactions for Fundtech

Skybot job scheduling software also helped the financial services provider meet SLAs and eliminate an extra shift

MINNEAPOLIS, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Skybot Software, a Help/Systems company, announced today that its customer, Fundtech - a leader in financial technology services - has reduced overhead and improved client transaction services with Skybot Scheduler, a web-based enterprise scheduling and workload automation solution for Windows, UNIX, and Linux servers.

Fundtech hosts transaction and processing services for over 500 global clients with tight deadlines and strict Service Level Agreements. Reliable job scheduling software is central to providing profitable service.

"We're moving hundreds of thousands of files a day," says Marni Jessie, Manager of Technical Support Services. "We're constantly adding new customers and bringing new servers online. We couldn't afford a solution that would slow down if it tried to handle more than 10,000 files."

Unfortunately, the automated file transfer tool that Fundtech initially implemented was unreliable. "It had a lot of internal failures," says Jessie "When it stopped working, files would just sit there and wait to be picked up."

With Skybot Scheduler in place, Fundtech is able to accommodate its growing customer base and processing demands with more reliable file transfer services, allowing them to satisfy current client SLAs.

"I've been pretty vocal about Skybot Scheduler with our clients," says Jessie. "I think it's important to share information about the good products behind our services. They know that Skybot Scheduler is protecting their file transfers."

In addition to replacing unreliable software and reducing overhead, Skybot Scheduler also allowed Fundtech to eliminate a 3rd shift and reassign valuable staff to other strategic projects.

Fundtech's setup of Skybot Scheduler works over a Microsoft Windows® infrastructure to collect transaction files and move them to prescribed destinations. "Skybot Scheduler moves files from place to place and syncs them appropriately during processing," says Jessie. "The product is great and with great service on top, there's nothing else that can touch it."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
