Overall Satisfaction with Winshuttle

We used Winshuttle to upload data and download data from SAP. It was used in three different departments - IT, Inbound, Outbound. It resolved the problems of creating thousands of material master records into the system (creation, changes...) and creating mass sales orders. In IT, we used it when any mass data corrections were needed, which were not met by the standard mass changes.
  • Excel to Data uploads to SAP in the standard fields in the material master, sales order, purchase order etc.
  • Download data from SAP to Excel from the tables.
  • Linking multiple upload and download scripts using one Winshuttle script is a great strength.
  • Updating the log in the Excel was huge advantage.
  • Different mode of runs like Debugging ( made to understand the issues), normal run, first record in debug mode
  • Not working with SAP Web Portal products like CRM, SRM, Enterprise Portal.
  • Some of the complex screens in SAP (like Material master - Classification, Sales Order - Availability Check section, where we have different logics / different screens ) are hard to work. They always need manual intervention to pass the screen.
  • User needs to work with SAP consultant to develop the scripts, as sometimes some of the fields may get incorrect entry because of default set etc.
  • Time saving to create material master / sales orders for hundred of records - The material master/programs had time to tackle other issues.
  • Increased efficiency due to saving time and reducing boredom.
  • IT stopped developments for mass uploads. Saved money.
The impression about the product during the demo was a great plus. The trial version allowed us to use and sense the feeling of the product. The customer support for any issues / clarifications were answered quickly. Two different licenses like transaction and run, made the difference as the regular business user does not need a high cost transaction license.
The Interface - If it is SAP GUI and ECC, it will work. For CRM WEBUI and CRM SAP GUI, it will be difficult to work with.
The transactions - Sales Order creation might be complex, if there are availability checks involved. Material master with classification or special tabs are difficult to work.
