Overall Satisfaction with Winshuttle

Winshuttle is currently used across the organization by business folks, governance teams, IT Master Data Teams, and corporate finance organizations to address day to day. It helps automate key time consuming, complex, and repeated tasks for business, for example, uploading monstrous journal entries in predefined templates, change volumes of asset information, transactional Data Migration by IT during Cut-over activities, etc. with much ease and absolutely no coding.
  • Winshuttle is great for automating manual activities, which are time-consuming and tedious, providing the users the ability to enter complex transactions very simplistically.
  • Winshuttle helps optimize, streamline, and automate ERP data operations with no coding requirements, which helps provide the business users the flexibility they need at their fingertips.
  • It's great for critical data cut-over activities for loading open balances for example in balance sheet items, for loading assets, etc, which could be quite time consuming and in general error-prone when not done accurately.
  • The use of Winshuttle is particularly helpful with systems where data volumes are always very high. If data volumes are not an issue, the use of Winshuttle for cut-over activities might not result in a significant perceivable difference in time savings.
  • For businesses and sectors that rely on business processes that are complex and tedious with a lot of manual interventions, Winshuttle comes in real handy. However, in situations of fairly straightforward business cases, it would be hard to see perceivable gains from the use of Winshuttle.
  • At times, the use of complex business process with multiple fields from one transaction needs to be fed into the next for further processing, if the screen sequence changes based on each set of information, the processing could fail. However, these could be overcome by grouping similar screened transactions into one chunk and others into another.
  • It definitely resulted in a positive ROI in corporate finance, with increased efficiencies achieved for closing activities when time is of the essence, especially in those quarter-end and year-end closing activities.
  • Posting ROI was realized during cut-over activities by project teams and master data management teams with the utilization of Winshuttle.
  • It helps business folks make complex journal entries on an as needed basis, especially when the entry is complex and needs a lot of cost objects for correction or adjustment entries.
Winshuttle provides ease of usage for automating various mundane and yet time-consuming activities, with the least amount of customizing, while preserving the flexibility and integrity of the information. The ability to work with Excel templates is very much appreciated by business users, and is the key aspect that helps ease the lives of users and the IT community.
Winshuttle is well suited for situations involving complex end-to-end business processes that involve repetitive tasks that end up taking time and effort. Also, it works particularly well in situations involving large volumes of information processing for cut-over activities for example, or for maintaining and changing on a mass scale for a large number of records. In situations where volume and complexity are not barriers, the use of Winshuttle is not as appropriate, perhaps.
