Whenever there is a large number of similar tasks to be done or a task has to be done regularly, you can save an enormous amount of time by batch processing, using the APS Job Engine.
The APS Job Engine allows you to schedule jobs that APS will process according to your specification. Those automatable and schedulable jobs include for example analysis, augmentation, transformation, indexing and sorting of data.
So imagine you want to add 3,000 pictures to your collection, all of them were taken by a single photographer over the course of her career. Instead of adding her name to each and every picture manually, you can let APS do this automatically in just a few seconds. What if you find out later that her name is spelled in a different way? Also no problem for the APS Job Engine. You want to create a daily report on newly added pictures? The APS Job Engine will do that for you.
