Planning & Budgeting

Better access and visibility of planning data

Shorten your budget cycles by optimizing your SAP budget planning processes. Consolidate historical data from multiple disparate sources, secure data extraction from tables, infosets, and logical databases, and create workflows to drive every step of your budget process.

The Challenge

SAP provides an extremely flexible set of tools for budgeting and planning, but using them effectively requires collecting large amounts of data from many disparate sources. This flexibility can lead to a time consuming and unstructured process that causes the final budget and forecasting numbers to remain out of date, or not in a format that is useful or actionable.

The Winshuttle Solution

Winshuttle for SAP Finance gives analysts and finance professionals the power to optimize budgeting and planning processes using familiar tools and existing skills, without writing code or making extensive changes to the SAP environment. Build data and workflow automation solutions that use SAP logon credentials and surface native SAP functionality to provide a better user experience without compromising security or performance.

Capabilities

Data entry

Finance teams can use Winshuttle enabled spreadsheets to consolidate data from disparate sources and upload it to SAP; or to create statistical key figures, make adjustments to CO-PA data, and perform other ad-hoc data operations that are difficult when used in SAP.

Mass data operations

Complex simulations and non-standard forecasts often require large scale data manipulation to populate SAP with needed data. With Winshuttle, you can use Microsoft Excel as a tool for securely creating and changing large data sets in SAP.

Budget and planning is process intensive. Winshuttle’s easy to use Workflow design tools allow organizations to automate routines for data collection, routing, approval, and other core functions.
