American department store chain, the Bon-Ton Stores Inc. replaced ASG-Zeke with Universal Automation Center

Add This To Your Technical Library

The Bon-Ton Stores Inc., is an American department store chain with corporate headquarters in York, Pennsylvania and Milwaukee, Wisconsin that operates 256 stores utilizing a legacy mainframe job scheduler known as ASG-Zeke. Bon-Ton was unable to handle tasks running on platforms other than z/OS. Jobs were run with z/OS tasks and moved to a different server to return the COND parameter. This was deemed inefficient and unacceptable. It was time for Bon-Ton to implement a modern workload automation solution and after conducting a thorough review of available automation solutions, The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. chose Stonebranch’s Universal Automation Center (UAC) as their new workload automation solution.


  • Improved functionality
  • Superior ease-of-use
  • Seamless conversion from ASG-Zeke job scheduler
  • Enhanced flexibility
  • Convenient dashboards and fully customizable reports
