Simplify the Way Operational Staff Define and Manage
End-to-End Business Processes

Less Configuration Effort

UAC Homepage shows all the installed components. Universal Controller Agents self-register with the Universal Controller, eliminating much of the configuration effort to manage the Universal Controller environment.


Universal Controller is a 100% Web-Based Product. There are no clients to install or maintain. All the tools within Universal Controller can be accessed via the Web with appropriate security (LDAP) setup.


Security can be as granular as needed to ensure proper credentials are in place. An internal or external user can submit transcations to the Universal Automation Center depending on appropriate security presets.

Change Management

Universal Automation Center provides an comprehensive audit trail to any database update or change. The audit also provides detailed information about what was changed. There is also versioning control, which provides a very powerful change management mechanism.

Effective Reporting

Universal Automation Center provides powerful activity reports to monitor critical batch services along with notifications. Overall more than 20 monitor processing features are available.


Ongoing maintenance and upgrades are a lot easier because fewer components need to be worked on i.e., one database, no thick client to install and maintain.

"With Stonebranch we easily centralized or multiple job scheduling landscapes, reduced risk because a system of checks and balances is in place throughout our IT infrastructure. By automating our processes, there is no need for manual intervention and the amount of time and resources dedicated to our job scheduling process is greatly reduced."

FirstOntario Automates Entire Job Scheduling Process

FirstOntario began in 1939 when a group of employees at the Steel Company of Canada created the Stelco Credit Union. Today more than 115,000 Ontarians choose FirstOntario for their financial needs – from chequing and savings accounts to loans and mortgages and highly qualified investment advice. FirstOntario Credit Union is a leading credit union located throughout Southwestern Ontario region

FirstOntario Credit Union was utilizing disparate job scheduling tools for its IBMiSeries, Windows and Linux platforms. Using multiple job scheduling tools required the company to monitor each scheduler separately, decreasing visibility and the amount of time and resources allocated to each job scheduling solution. Unable to automate their processes in one environment, the IT team sought a solution that works across platforms without specialization, and that could also standardize processes and consolidate existing tools.

FirstOntario Credit Union selected Stonebranch's technology to replace its diverse agent infrastructures with a single enterprise-wide execution layer, the enterprise execution environment. This unique approach provides FirstOntario with central auditing and monitoring of workload activity across the enterprise as well a central management of the entire workload infrastructure — as if it were a single system.
