                Customer Quote
“We were searching for a single job scheduler that could
manage batch processes associated with existing
distributed applications and integrate with our new SCT
Banner solution. We determined that the AppWorx
solution provided us everything we needed to achieve our
long-term goals and still be able to grow and add new
applications within our IT environment."

Mary Ellen Gaughan, Director Ops Support Svcs.

                Customer Quote
"AppWorx has allowed us to empower our users by
putting control of job automation, output viewing, printing
and downloading directly into their hands. Its ease of use
allows directors and clerical personnel alike to take
control of their processes. In a large part, this is due to the
sophistication of the error checking that we are able to
build into the deployed processes. We have come to
depend on it to simplify our jobs."
Mark Sullivan
Associate Director of Integrated Admin Computing Solutions
