Automate SFTP per department using a VARA for predefined destination.

Hi All,
We receive email requests from several departments to have files sent to remote locations / vendors, which is currently performed manually using Ipswitch or Filezilla. My thought is to create a shared folder for each department and have a job poll the folders. When a file is dropped, a VARA would be used to get the files destination based on the name of the file, then an ftp job would transmit the file. This process would run all day freeing up a lot of time and resources. This would essentially be a self service process.

Has anyone setup a process similar to this or do you have a better more efficient way of accomplishing with task?

Thanks You,
