Every ERP system relies on the accuracy of its data. Like fuel in an engine, the quality of data inputs determines the quality of an ERP system output. With the explosion in data growth rates, effective data management requires much more than IT’s management of system storage – it requires tools and methods that the business can use to create and manage transactional and master data.
SAP data management with Winshuttle Studio
|This has been an evolution for us. We’ve been using Winshuttle now for a couple of years and we are always calling G3G to help us and do more. Each and every script we create pays for itself, many times over. It’s actually the easiest budgetary item I have.

Winshuttle empowers users to manage ERP data through the use of lean applications that streamline data collection, data validation and data maintenance. Even without knowledge of ABAP, Functional users can quickly create and automate SAP transactions – resulting in time savings, lower cost, and increased accuracy of data.
Effective data management must become the responsibility of every user touching the ERP system. All of the work associated with collecting, validating and moving data into the system, creates a data management “tax.” This tax will increase exponentially over time as the amount of data grows. Data tax is twofold:
Throughout the business large numbers of users are spending numerous hours a day dealing with manual ERP data entry and transcription work. That is a lot of people time committed to a data “tax” overhead and the price of unproductive time is high.
You can never eliminate human errors and manual work does not scale, so more and more delays and errors will creep into your data maintenance and creation activities. Delayed or distorted strategic decisions based on inaccurate data lead to overlooked waste and high costs, missed new product and business development opportunities, and poor long-term investments.

Winshuttle at Dorman Products & ASUG
G3G presented at ASUG, demonstrating the importance and versatility of Winshuttle. Dorman Products Inc., a leading supplier of Dealer “Exclusive” automotive replacement parts, automotive hardware, brake products, household hardware to the Automotive After-market and Mass Merchandise markets, recognised the importance of data management as part of their SAP implementation strategy. With hundreds of thousands of unique material numbers to manage (and an additional 60,000-100,000 new materials created each year), Dorman knew that manually processing records in SAP would be inefficient and inaccurate. They needed a tool to manage the data that was quick, powerful, flexible, and easy to implement and use.
G3G have helped Dorman to create over 500 Winshuttle scripts to support both master data and transactional data processes in all of their modules (MM, SD, PP, FI).
