Master-Slave Controller

Besides the many management possibilities of b4, it’s possible to create a controller hierarchy utilising slave controllers that can run the automation independently in a local network while being managed by the master controller

Graphical Workflow Rules Engine

The graphical workflow based rules engine doesn’t only automate a multitude of front end and back end processes, it is easy to use, utilising drag and drop technology and also acts as a visual documentation that also non-technical people understand easily

Automation Master Rules

In b4, you don’t need to create a separate workflow rule for every automaton scenario. With master rules, you can globally define specific automation logic; apply it to multiple Bots and automation flows. This also allows you to change the automation logic without having to edit multiple rules

Custom Scripts

b4 is highly versatile. You can incorporate existing scripts. Any script language that can be executed on the local machine can be integrated in the graphical rules workflow and executed on the target system

End To End Monitoring

b4 checks all application performance outputs in real time and from the Bots/Users point of view. The additional benefit is that if there are any immediate or progressive issues with the performance and/or availability of critical applications and processes, the Bot will provide objective dependable information and can troubleshoot and narrow the root cause
