Extend Technologies Joins Winshuttle’s SHUTTLEpro Partner Program to Offer Excel-based Business Process Improvement Solutions to SAP Users

Bothell, WA – March 1, 2010 – Winshuttle, the leading provider of Excel-based business process improvement solutions for SAP® users, today announced a Premier Partnership agreement with Extend Technologies, an SAP Gold Channel Partner. With Winshuttle’s products now available as part of Extend Technologies’ total solution offering, SAP users will have the ability to work directly with their SAP system from Microsoft Excel®, without programming.

“Winshuttle is a world leader in SAP data loading and extraction solutions and they complement our customer offering very well. As most business users are already very comfortable working within Excel spreadsheets, the ability to shuttle data between Excel and SAP improves productivity and saves a significant amount of time and money,” said Kristian Kalsing, head of the Microsoft Solutions Group at Extend Technologies.

The ease-of-use of Winshuttle’s product suite empowers business users and functional consultants to build and run data scripts as required. “We often see that data is not being kept up to date in the core system because it’s just too costly. Winshuttle’s transactionSHUTTLE tool reduces the amount of time typically required for mass data maintenance. And most importantly, Winshuttle is a secure, non-technical solution, so users can apply it directly without involving technical staff,” continued Kalsing.

“Extend Technologies has deep SAP market knowledge and expertise, in addition to its proven commitment and reputation in Australia,” said Rajat Oberoi, Winshuttle’s chief business development officer and co-founder. “We look forward to working with Extend Technologies to help deliver cost-effective business process improvement solutions to their SAP customers.
