How does it work?

Composer is a server-based application accessible through a web browser. It provides a flexible authoring environment for building applications that connect structured transactional data stored within ERP, CRM and other enterprise systems with the unstructured information and processes that underlie all business processes. This direct interaction enables companies to reduce operational costs and increase business process agility via automation and increased data accuracy. Winshuttle User Governance is required to store and govern the forms that users create with Composer. Winshuttle Server™ is also needed to enable the use of web services to publish and execute Composer authored applications.

FAQs

How do Designer-based solutions co-exist with Composer-based solutions?
Designer and Composer are front-end design tools supported by the same back-end server. Existing Designer forms will continue to work side by side with Composer forms. However, Designer forms cannot be opened inside Composer (and vice versa). The two solutions exist in parallel. You may choose to design in InfoPath and Designer or Composer, depending on your business requirements.
How do I get Winshuttle Composer?
Composer comes bundled with Winshuttle Enterprise Studio. The Winshuttle Enterprise Studio suite is an integrated package of five distinct applications—Transaction, Query, Direct, Designer and Composer—that help business users and IT create solutions for SAP-centric business processes.
With the Enterprise Studio suite, you can quickly design and implement forms-based business processes (based on Excel and SharePoint).
If I buy Enterprise Studio, do I need to buy anything else in order to take advantage of Composer?
No. You don’t need anything else to author workflow solutions, but you will need runtime components in order to deploy workflow solutions.
If I already have Enterprise Studio, do I need to buy anything else in order to take advantage of Composer?
No. All you do is download Composer from the support.winshuttle.com website download links section.
What is the cost for a Composer license? Are there annual maintenance fees?
Composer will be part of Enterprise Studio. There are no additional charges.
