Winshuttle Using Enterprise Software Simplified
Date: Tuesday , November 03, 2009
Winshuttle developed their first software to solve specific SAP data challenges that oneSAP customer was experiencing. However, today the company’s solutions have evolved into a major tool in enterprises for SAP data loading and extraction.
Founded in 2003 by Vikram Chalana and Rajat Oberoi, Winshuttle today has software, which is used by over 500 large companies around the world. “We wanted to make SAP more useful for the organizations, by simplifying the process of using it,” says Chalana.
The company’s flagship product transactionSHUTTLE records the steps that a user takes to complete any SAP transaction and maps the relevant SAP fields to an Excel spreadsheet, easily creating a transaction template. A run-only version of the transactionSHUTTLE software, runSHUTTLE allows a SAP user to securely move data between Excel and SAP using predefined transaction templates.
In 2008, the Bothell, Washington based Company expanded its product line by releasing querySHUTTLE and eSHUTTLE. querySHUTTLE was designed to allow business users to securely extract SAP transactional data into familiar Microsoft Excel and Access formats for analysis.eSHUTTLE provides centralized visibility and governance for enterprise deployments of Winshuttle solutions. This not only enables firms to share files and best practices across the organization, but also addresses the organization’s requirements for specific controls and audit trails to meet SOX and corporate governance policies.
The customers of Winshuttle come from all major market segments, with a marquee customerlist consisting of companies like Lockheed Martin, Nike, Mercedes Benz, Coca-Cola, AMD, SAP America, Epson, ABB and others. The company has 80 people based in Seattle London, Paris, and Chandigarh.
Going forward the company plans to introduce more products. “We will be offering more products to bridge the gap between Microsoft SharePoint and their ERP systems,” says Chalana. Winshuttle attributes its success to the “Many happy customers who continue shuttling billions of records every year.”
