AbleFtp is designed with those users in mind that need automate FTP transfers without having to constantly manage them themselves.

The program is extremely easy to use with no programming or scripting required and features an attractive GUI for an FTP client which by and large are usually pretty drab affairs. It's designed to run up to 1000 or more tasks a day which is an incredible amount that most people will have no need for but indicates that even business users may get some mileage out of this program too. If you have any urgent problems, the program also offers free technical support so you don't have to upgrade if you get stuck although major upgrades have to be paid for.

There's no denying however that the big draw of this client will be the scheduling and remote access options. You can schedule FTP of files between your PC and the server and even automatically rename files based on the current month, day or time if needed. In addition, FTP supports wildcards (*) and can transfer multiple files at once. Meantime if you want to monitor your transfers from afar, the remote FTP directory monitor can detect directory changes and initiate FTP, ZIP, copy and delete actions.

It may not be the most advanced FTP client you'll ever use but it's certainly one of the most intuitive and automated and therefore, a great time saver.
