JTB Batch Change allows you to automate and batch process AutoCAD through Excel. Some examples of usage are:
With Batch Rename Objects you can rename layers in hundreds of drawing by substituting text "Concrete" with "CONC", or add a prefix of "AC " to each layer's name
With Batch Find and Replace you can find and replace text on multiple drawings.
You can import and update all blocks from a standard drawing to hundreds of other drawings.
You can replace all inserted blocks "DOOR-BD3" in layer "Archs" with block "DOOR-AC1", and move them to layer "ARCH-FURN"
You can change all texts whose styles are not prefixed with "ELEC" to "ELEC Standard" style, then change all block's attributes whose tag is "DATE" to current date.
You can convert all your inserted blocks from dynamic to static, or to anonymous blocks.
You can flatten all your drawing objects by setting all Z coordinates to 0.

Additionally, you can perform Batch Audit and Purge as well as much more.
When done with a batch processing you can see what has been processed in the log.
This is a great tool in the hands of AutoCAD users or CAD managers that want to save time doing manual work doing updates on many drawings.
