How Civica Used iMacros

Civica partnered with Ipswitch’s iMacros software to automate the complex steps required to access websites, sign in, and acquire specific information to populate databases. Civica chose iMacros because they needed a reliable out-of-the-box solution they could integrate quickly.

Civica was impressed with iMacros ability to automate a constantly repeated function that didn’t seem to lend itself to automation. “With iMacros we can do managed downloads like BACS reports, which include the electronic processing of financial debit and credit transactions.” said Richard Brabrook, Civica Automation’s General Manager. “iMacros can also handle complex interactions such as credential password change on-demand, and anti-bot measures such as requesting variable character positions from password.”
