We've used VisualCron for 3+ years now and runs all the scheduling and file arrival events on our Windows server. It is easy to create jobs and tasks and has a lot more functionality than what we use. Support has been quick when we have needed it, but that has been rare. Updates are regular and they always seem to anticipate our needs before we need to ask. All around great tool and we couldn't work without it!

I have been using VisualCron now for 5+ years at two different companies and at home for personal automation needs. There simply is no alternative that matches the price and level of features VC provides in a scheduler. Their development is active, support is responsive, and they even add features that you request to constantly improve the product. It goes way beyond what a normal scheduler should do but it also does what a scheduler should do very well. Between native tasks that make it easy for non-developers to automate tedious tasks to a rich C# API that opens up avenues for devs to do some powerful things, it stands alone.

VisualCron has made my life easier at two different company roles and it can surely help you with any automated tasks you need for a much cheaper price than most enterprise products. It does have a bit of a learning curve with the software but the documentation is pretty good and support is terrific to get you going. Once you try it you'll wonder why you ever used the default Task Scheduler windows provides.

VisualCron is an awesome scheduler. If you can imagine scheduling/batch functionality, it probably does it already. We love it!

VisualCron is VERY PROUD of the fact that their marketing is directed to the Wealthiest Tier of Companies –  •Aston Martin  •Adobe  •Apple  •Assa Abloy  •Boeing  •BMW  •Etc, ETC. – With their Very Cheapest license running a cool half a Grand.    I personally use several wonderfully capable automation packages -- which all have one HUGE CONTRAST from this bizarre product:: They ALL happen to be very affordable for the average computer user.

I've been using Visual Cron in an enterprise environment for over 7 years. This is an amazing solution for the price point. Continuous development and addition of new features makes this tool well worth the investment. I'd recommend this scheduling tool for any enterprise environment.

We've been using Visual Cron in a production environment for over two years. It's been quite solid for us, and is a very reliable piece of software. Because it has so many features it can have a bit of a learning curve, but let's face it - this isn't an application for managing your photo library - it's an enterprise-class client-server task scheduling and automation suite.

Early on during initial setup we had an issue and reported it as a feature request and it was dealt with quickly and made it into the next release. The developers are actively working on the product and new features come out regularly. We've had very few issues with it. We selected VC because it was the only alternative to Scheduled Tasks that was actually written as a Windows native app. Everything else we reviewed was run from a Java VM and all the help docs were written for *nix users. Installation instructions, etc. would end with "note, process may be different for Windows users" or something similar.

We have many scheduled tasks, as well as on-demand tasks and even tasks triggered from a monitored email inbox, allowing non-developers to send commands to our VC server without installing the client. Like I said, full-featured.

We have been using VisualCron for a long time. Hard to even say how long, but I would guess about 7 years, for most of that we've had a site-license. The product is rock-solid and has a ridiculous amount of versatility. In fact, I bet we have not used 10% of the various types of tasks it can complete, and we use the product on every single server and most IT workstations to schedule everything from backups and file syncing, to automating checks for our file systems and user data. In fact, it serves as our queue processor for our web server! Henrik is a fantastic developer and has always been very helpful when we needed support or requested changes. Couldn't imagine running an IT department without it!
