JP1/Client Process Automation

Need to automate business operations, including those that use RPA?

RPA: Robotic Process Automation

Product overview

With JP1/Client Process Automation, you can control the execution schedule as well as the execution order of regular business processes performed on a PC (including processes performed by using RPA products).

Automate operations performed on a PC

With JP1/Client Process Automation, you can automate a sequence of regular business processes performed on PCs (such as processes performed by using RPA products, data aggregation performed manually by using spreadsheet software, and the sending and receiving of files and emails) along with any required pre-processing and post-processing. By simply combining preset items that define what is to be executed when and in what order, you can standardize and automate procedures, even if you do not have advanced coding skills. This allows you to prevent mistakes and the need to redo work, thereby reducing the time required for work, and improving the quality and efficiency of regular processes performed on PCs.

Start by managing a single PC, and then expand to central management of your entire company

You can start by automating operations on a single PC. By automating the processes of high-priority PCs first, you can limit the scope of impact of the changes made to your system. After monitoring the impact of the initial changes, you can then gradually increase the number of PCs whose processes are automated. Finally, when you are ready to automate a sequence of regular processes performed on multiple PCs, you can link JP1/Client Process Automation with JP1/Automatic Job Management System 3 to automate and centrally manage the business systems used throughout your company.

Implement fine-tuned control of the execution timing of business processes

Automatically execute processes according to a schedule

You can specify a detailed execution schedule for processes (such as a specific date and time, or an execution interval). For example, you can define processes to be automatically executed on business days only, on non-business days only, or at 9:00 a.m. on the last business day of each month. This enables you to execute processes in a way that suits the actual schedule of your business.

Automatically execute processes according to a schedule

Automatically execute processes based on triggers

JP1/Client Process Automation can execute a process when a certain event, called a trigger, occurs. For example, processes can be executed when a file is created, when an email is received, or when a user logs in to Windows. This allows you to automate processes by linking them with certain events, rather than scheduling them to be performed at a specific date and time, or at a specific interval.

Automatically execute processes based on triggers

Control the order in which automated tasks are executed

Ensure that tasks are executed in a specific order

With JP1/Client Process Automation, you can ensure that the tasks that make up each business process are executed in a particular order. For example, you can schedule a task to be executed only after the preceding task is complete, regardless of the processing time of the preceding task. Alternatively, you can define a task to be executed only after multiple preceding tasks are complete.

Ensure that tasks are executed in a specific order

Automatically select the subsequent task based on the execution results

You can automatically change the flow of a business process based on the execution results of a task. For example, you can use conditions to automatically execute the subsequent task if a task ends normally, and to automatically perform recovery if the task results in an error.

Automatically select the subsequent task based on the execution results

Easily check execution results

You can easily check the execution statuses of business processes by using the GUI.
For processes in which multiple tasks are executed in a specific order, you can check both the status of the process (such as "Wait for start time", "Ended normally", or "Ended abnormally") and, if the process fails, the specific task that failed and the cause of the failure. This allows you to respond to errors smoothly by checking the status of the process and re-executing any tasks that failed.

Improve the efficiency of processes that have been automated by using RPA

Automatically log on to Windows

If a PC on which an RPA tool is installed is not logged on to Windows (for example, because a Windows Update caused the PC to restart, or because the screen was locked after a period of inactivity), the RPA tool might not be able to start, and tasks might not be executed according to plan. By including Windows logon and the startup of the RPA tool in the series of tasks to be executed, you can ensure that tasks performed by RPA tools are executed according to the schedule, thereby preventing delays.

Automatically log on to Windows

Prevent failures that occur when multiple tasks run at the same time

Some RPA products cannot execute multiple tasks at once. Therefore, a failure might result if one task starts while another is still in progress. In this situation, you can use exclusion settings to ensure that multiple tasks do not run at the same time. Thus, if a previously executed task has not ended by the scheduled start time of another task, the system waits until the first task ends, and then executes the second task.

Prevent failures that occur when multiple tasks run at the same time

Integrate and automate business systems as a whole

By linking JP1/Client Process Automation with JP1/Automatic Job Management System 3, you can coordinate regular processes performed on a PC and processes performed by using various RPA products, along with core processes. This allows you to automate and centrally manage your business systems as a whole.
You can control the execution order of tasks and automate task execution, based on the order of tasks performed by different RPA products. This helps to improve the efficiency of the process as a whole.
