By Jim O'Farrell on May 23, 2014

A significant number of our customers are using Winshuttle Connect, which provides insight into SAP transaction code usage. Connect collects the time statistics associated with each execution of a Winshuttle script, along with information about the SAP instance and the number of SAP records processed.  Customers report that this information is essential for maximizing their existing license utilization and identifying new areas of process innovation.

For example, SAP VK11, which is used to establish pricing, is widely used by Winshuttle customers in a broad reach of industries.  The aggregate data shows that from Q3 2013 to Q4 2014 230 customers:

  •  Saved 24,000 days
  • Processed 26M+ pricing records
  • Ran VK11 21,000 times

The following table highlights VK11 (Create Condition) transaction optimization by industry, measured by both records processed and days saved.  Quite literally the data shows our customers saved nearly 100 person years of time savings for this one transaction.
