I am a CPA and have used Advanced Task Scheduler Professional to automate many tasks both as part of my firm, as well as client accounting processes. I am very impressed with the power and flexibility of the software. Also, I am very appreciative of the scripts that you have written for me to help me automatically log into websites and download information. I look forward to continuing to find more uses of this software. Thanks.
