As is the case with any business, time is your most valuable community. If there are any repetitive tasks that can be automated, then it doesn't make any sense to continue relying on tedious manual processes. For example, if a considerable part of an employee's daily routine involves synchronizing files between local computers and remote FTP servers, relying on manual processes isn't just time-consuming - it also leaves you open to costly human error. For example, when you need to work with thousands of files and folders and ensure that every copy in every location is kept current, there's a good chance of losing control over versioning. As such, you may end up unwittingly deleting or overwriting the most current version. Not to mention, the whole process of working with traditional FTP clients is incredibly inefficient unless you only need to carry out the very occasional operation. Fortunately, there's a much better way - now you can automate FTP and SFTP transfers with FTPGetter Professional. Making Your Workday More Productive with Automation and Task Scheduling Think for a moment about the process involved in changing or downloading a single file using a conventional FTP client. Firstly, you need to log in before navigating through the folder structure, which is typically not nearly as responsive and efficient as using the local Windows File Explorer. When you finally find the file you are looking for, you'll need to manually download it before checking the details to see version information. Then, you will need to manually upload the more recent version of the file or vice versa. Perhaps, if it is something you only need to do on the rarest of occasions, it's no big deal. However, if working with files stored on an FTP or SFTP server is an important part of your routine, then the basic FTP client isn't nearly good enough to handle anything approaching a heavy workflow. With FTPGetter Professional, you can manage jobs of any size and complexity with multiple FTP servers. Better yet, once you have installed the program and configured your scheduled tasks, it will do all the hard work for you without requiring any additional user input. That way, you can automate and streamline repetitive tasks and rest assured that the program will keep all files current both on the local computer and the remote server. Whether you want to synchronize entire folders or just the odd file, the software has you covered. Furthermore, it supports file masks, thereby allowing you to synchronize files of specific formats only. You can also configure the program to check for file creations at specific intervals and update them on both the local computer and remote server as required. More advanced users will also find great power in the included scripting engine, which lets you create automated tasks of any level of complexity. In other words, FTPGetter Professional is built to adapt to a very specific set of needs, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. Are you ready to automate FTP and SFTP transfers?
