Maintain Locations – OIAS

Manage SAP Location data more efficiently

Winshuttle technologies enable users to efficiently create and maintain location data in SAP Enterprise Asset Management and Plant Maintenance environments without relying on expensive custom ABAP interfaces. With Winshuttle Transaction, users can source location data from familiar tools, such as Excel, Access, and others. They can also use these familiar tools, instead of the SAP OIAS transaction, to more efficiently manage locations data, which can provide significant time and cost savings.

SAP location data affects other SAP data, including materials management, finance, costing, asset accounting, and plant maintenance. Transaction helps users ensure the accuracy and completeness of SAP location data by validating the data before it is uploaded into SAP and by automating time-consuming data-entry processes. Transaction can also work with multiple SAP systems, enabling companies to ensure data integrity across the enterprise.
