In order to provide our customers with greater efficiency in their processes, to remove the tedium of repetitive tasks, provide value through expert tasks
being run in the background of a software task, reduce errors, and moderate human intervention, ACD/Labs offers a variety of automation options.
Scripting and Macros
Scripting is a true programming language offering real conditional, tree options, and object (spectrum, chromatogram, etc) manipulation and access/action to
the database. Scripting is available at every level of our software, from enterprise level (both client and server based) to desktop products such as processors
and local databases. Scripting is a convenient way to carry out custom automation of small workflows (semi-automation). Using true programming language automation
can be built into routine tasks involving our software to simplify complex tasks, such as creating a multi-technique report.
Scripting is available to customers free of charge directly through our software. We offer training to allow you to develop scripts yourself, or can provide scripting
as a service.
Macro-commands are available in processing applications of our analytical software and are dedicated to grouping sequential sets of processing commands.
ACD/Labs software is often placed into a department or organization within a well-defined workflow. In such cases full automation of a process can radically improve
efficiency. By engaging our professional services team, you can automate processes to standardize procedures, provide consistency, and minimize human intervention.
For example, we can automate processing and databasing of data from a cluster of analytical instrument, provide automated purity analysis by LCMS, or automated structure
verification by NMR.
