Custom Automator Development

Our experience working with Automator is virtually unparalleled. In fact, Ben Waldie, president of Automated Workflows, LLC, wrote the book on Automator – litterally! Ben is the author of the Automator for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide and the Mac OS X Technology Guide to Automator, valuable resources for both users and developers alike.

Automator Action Development

Since the release of Automator in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, we have developed dozens of third-pary actions that allow users to extend Automator's reach.

All of the Automator actions we create are AppleScript-based, allowing them to interact with virtally any AppleScriptable application or process in Mac OS X. Many of our actions have been developed internally, and then released for use by the general public, including popular actions for creative applications, such as InDesign, Photoshop, and QuarkXPress. We have also developed unique custom actions for specific client workflows, or for other developers, to be integrated with thier own software products.

Whether you are a user that is looking to extend the power of Automator within your own workflow, or a developer looking to enhance your existing software with automator support, we can help. We will work with you to analyze your Automator action needs, develop a comprehensive action plan, and bring that plan to completion. The result will be an action or a set of actions that will help to enhance Apple's built-in Automator actions, giving users the ability to create even more efficient workflows.

Automator Workflow Construction

While Automator is a very user friendly application, it does take some time and practice to begin creating workflows that will automate time consuming and repetitive tasks on your machine. We can help.

For users, we can discuss your specific needs, and then create Automator workflows for you that will augment your existing manual workflow. Since no programming or scripting is necessary to create an Automator workflow, these workflows can generally be built quickly and inexpensively. They can also be easily modified or expanded by you in the future.
For developers, we can help to develop Automator workflows that will showcase the Automator support in your software, and demonstrate how your software can be integrated into a multi-application automated workflow.
