Data Loading & Extraction SmartStart

Challenge: Increase data productivity, security & compliance while reducing costs.

Replace manual data entry and complex technical tools by easily and securely shuttling data between Microsoft Excel or Access and SAP without programming using Winshuttle's technology. Founded in 2003, Winshuttle, Inc. is the leading provider of data loading and extraction tools for SAP users worldwide. Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company is Australia and New Zealand’s leading licensed reseller and implementer of Winshuttle software solutions.

The Winshuttle solution consists of two main products:

  1. transactionSHUTTLE allows the simplified creation of upload scripts and then execution.
  2. querySHUTTLE enables simplified creation of ad hoc queries and subsequent execution.

Both of these products have run time only versions which can be given to users who you don’t want to create data objects.

A third product which governs the dataupload process. eSHUTTLE provides centralised control of upload and download of data. This product integrates withMicrosoft Office and Sharepoint to ensure all data is approved before upload and full traceability is maintained for uploaded data.

This is ideal for environments with high compliance requirements. UXCOxygen’s trained SHUTTLEmasters assist organisations to match their data requirements with the most appropriate solution in the portfolio. We then assist with solution implementation, SAP mapping and query design and support.
