Having the option to use ARE to lighten the burden of having to add the password for ever system you have enrolled in ARE GUI, would increase the usability of the scheduler present in ARE and also improve the usability of the console.
Administration Runtime Expert is an excellent product for checking IBM i health regarding the applications running on it. The build in scheduler is able to kick of tasks at the time they are planned to run. In order to do this all you need to do is enrol the system/endpoint the user name and password. The password is stored in memory, meaning that after a restart of ARE they have to be added again. This is fine from a security point of view, when taking usability into account is far from user friendly.
