Orchid Systems

Developed by Orchid Systems, Process Scheduler enables you to schedule when your Sage 300 (Accpac) data is checked and backed up and to schedule automation of other processes. It maximizes system resource usage by allowing you to automatically perform these tasks overnight, whilst the system is not being used, and automating processes for when required.

All schedules are tracked, and a history of the scheduled actions - success or failure - can be reported on at any time. Checking the integrity of your Sage 300 data and running processes on a regular basis has never been easier!
