Productivity Gains

Productivity gains

Winshuttle customers can track the time saved and records processed for every SAP interaction which adds up to days and week’s worth of productivity for the business. This data coupled with the time to execute a typical transaction using the SAP GUI provides a hard measure to project cost savings and capacities gained with Winshuttle. Productivity is measured as the difference (in seconds saved) between a typical SAP GUI process and a Winshuttle equivalent process execution (e.g. MM02 – material maintenance).

Reduce custom development spend

Winshuttle customers can easily measure development cost savings by the difference in hours required to develop an LSMW script compared to Winshuttle’s simple “record-map-run” process. Based on extensive feedback, customers are currently saving $4K to $10K per script. When annual IT SAP data maintenance/LSMW requests average between 20-100+, and the blended rate for SAP ABAP, and BASIS experts can run from $150 to $350 USD per hour – it’s easy to see costs reaching $200K to millions of dollars in IT programming and infrastructure.

Other application development projects like building an employee self service portal with SharePoint, or creating a mobile time entry application can also generate cost savings for a broad range of SAP business processes using Winshuttle’s ERP usability platform.

Deployment

Deployment

Improving SAP process improvement testing, quality assurance, user acceptance and implementation offers significant cost avoidance when leveraging the Winshuttle usability platform. End user surveys show high user acceptance of the enhanced process usability, and a significant increase in overall usage of SAP modules. Winshuttle customers report deployment costs between 1-10% of software license costs, and SAP GUI implementation costs ranging from 100-300% of software license cost — a measurable and meaningful difference.

Training

Winshuttle customers reduce SAP end user training costs by 4-40 hours per year per end user, plus a significant reduction in training staff and equipment overhead. There are no hidden developer training costs – or associated technical complexities. You won’t need to maintain credentials or stay abreast of daily updates, workshops or SDN monitoring. Developer training savings can range from 40-160 hours per year.

Training

Support

Support

Support desks and shared services teams who assist SAP users are impacted by the nuances required for SAP GUI based solutions, and users can significantly improve the ability to get up and running quickly with Winshuttle. This driver is measured by the difference between the ongoing support required for Winshuttle and similar SAP GUI processes. Support call minutes saved ranges from 5-30 minutes per incident for 5-20% of your SAP transactions.

Infrastructure Utilization

Companies around the world purchase enormous amounts of computing infrastructure, hardware, software, networking, services and monitoring solutions to optimize their SAP system performance. Layering the Winshuttle platform on top of your existing infrastructure accelerates a broad range of SAP data maintenance, migration, integration, entry and query applications.
