Skybot Software, a Help/Systems company, announces publication of its Service Corporation International (SCI) Success Story. Discover how Skybot Scheduler handles their complex scheduling, monitoring, and SOX auditing needs and see why they agree that, “...anyone in the market for an easy-to-use Windows, UNIX, or Linux job scheduler should take a good hard look at Skybot Scheduler.”

"We're running about 350 jobs on six servers. My staff commented that it's very easy to set up what we call "file watcher" jobs in Skybot Scheduler. They love that - anything that makes their life easier."

Skybot Software, a Help/Systems company, announces publication of its Service Corporation International (SCI) Success Story. SCI, a longtime Help/Systems customer, is a world leader in funeral services, with more than 20,000 dedicated employees, exclusive products and customer benefits, and best-in-class policies and professional standards.

SCI runs their core business from a data center with jobs and processes running 24/7. In the IBM i world, they had enjoyed years of automation courtesy of Robot/SCHEDULE, the automated batch management and job scheduling software from Help/Systems.

As SCI transitioned to a more Windows-centric environment, they were looking for the same powerful scheduling capabilities in a fast, easy-to-implement, affordable solution. According to Frank McCreery, Director of Production Operations, “It was great news to get a product like Skybot Scheduler that we felt comfortable with. We had used Robot/SCHEDULE for a long time with great results.”

They found that Skybot Scheduler made it easy to schedule jobs with dependencies by setting up “file watcher” jobs that monitor and launch other jobs. And, Skybot Scheduler’s audit log was crucial for their SOX controls.

Their journey to production was fast and smooth because implementing Skybot Scheduler was easy. As Frank summarizes, “Anyone in the market for an easy to-use Windows, UNIX, or Linux job scheduler should take a good hard look at Skybot Scheduler.”
