Editor's Notes

  1. Andrew
  2. What are we going to talk about today… Agenda: (Note to sales: You will likely modify this to fit your specific customer meeting needs)
  3. [General finance and accounting audiences - Can be used to intro your audience specific impact slide] As enterprises become more and more reliant on data and the volume of data we use to manage our businesses grows exponentially, it is more important than ever for companies to be able to react and move quickly. And CEO’s are acknowledging this need to be more agile and able to quickly respond to changes in the business climate.
  4. Gartner KPMG KPMG McKinsey
  5. Reference and Conditional data
  6. [This slide can be used and adapted for many different scenarios to explain where Precisely Automate fits into a customer landscape.]
  7. [This slide can be used and adapted for many different scenarios to explain where Precisely Automate fits into a customer landscape.]
  8. When you choose the Winshuttle Platform for your SAP finance and accounting processes you enable your business to develop solutions as needed across the entire platform. From the powerful desktop capabilities of Winshuttle Studio that automate mass data processes such as G/L account maintenance and period end journal entries. Capabilities which we will discuss throughout this presentation: Finance data creation and maintenance Data migration Financial reporting Data stewardship capabilities To advanced workflow automation with Winshuttle Foundation that can manage data files like Excel with full governance and compliance Capabilities which we will discuss throughout this presentation: Advanced routing and governance capabilities Server-based file management Flexible, conditional routing And Web forms that can simplify complex data management tasks and workflows. Capabilities which we will discuss throughout this presentation: Advanced, user-friendly web form and workflow capabilities Server-based execution Process analytics Advanced data stewardship capabilities (via web forms) Whatever capabilities your team needs to apply in the business, Winshuttle offers a solution.
  9. [Note to sales:] The blocks pieces are the top-level capabilities that make us unique in the marketplace. There is a slide on each of these in the first section of the slide library. Here are some points you might want to weave in that positions what Automate Evolve does compared to business process automation (BPA) platforms (like K2, Nintex, Pegasystems, etc.) and master data management (MDM) platforms like SAP MDG: Traditional business process automation platforms streamline processes but do little or nothing to improve data quality. They’re also not designed to handle complex, strategic SAP data processes.   Master data management platforms are great at improving the quality of a few core data attributes but are not designed to automate complex business processes that span data objects and business functions.   Automate Evolve provides the right combination capabilities and enables enterprise organizations to create and maintain strategic data assets faster—data like materials, customers, suppliers, and equipment—while ensuring that data adheres to business rules and company and regulatory procedures.
  10. Note to sales: This slide is made to point out that Automate Evolve includes Automate Studio, but that customers can still use as a standalone solution to get some quick wins while they are developing workflow solutions in Automate Evolve. Note that the slide has a couple of builds in it to help you get the point across easier.
  11. Note to sales: Use this slide to highlight some of the key features of our workflow capabilities and how we can enable customers to dramatically reduce cycle times and improve compliance.
  12. Note to sales: Use this slide to explain our key data stewardship capabilities for both web form and Excel front ends. This is a great way to set up or summarize a demo.
  13. Note to sales: Getting more visibility into these strategic data processes is one of the key reasons customers are looking for an automation solution. If customers are tackling these processes with spreadsheets and email it’s really tough and time consuming to find out where a request is in the process.
  14. Note to sales: Automate Evolve is built with a modern, intuitive user interface to speed up solution development.
  15. Why Portals? A common request we have received from customers is to extend vendor/customer onboarding scenarios to stakeholders outside the organization. With Evolve Portals, you can build your own supplier self-service and customer self-service portals. And you will also be able to use this for internal portals, to build specific landing pages for specific groups of users. This extends Evolve use cases and opens up new opportunities for you to deliver more and better service for your customers and suppliers. External Portal deployment is available as an add-on to Evolve 20.2 and later. Talk to your sales rep about pricing for external portals based on your needs. You can also develop and deploy portals for internal audiences at no cost. In our conversations with Gartner, it’s been evident that this is an area that is still largely unsolved for a lot of customers. Companies are left trying piece together their own solutions. With Evolve Portals we are providing the fastest path to a custom portal.
  16. Here are some of the use cases that we planning to address with the initial release of Evolve Portals. Onboarding, change requests, data updates and more can be accomplished through the portals.
  17. With the 20.2 release of Winshuttle Evolve, the platform now includes a set of RESTful APIs that enable Evolve to manage and automate broader, end-to-end processes by connecting multiple systems and cloud services with SAP.  These API's help solution developers efficiently integrate systems to and processes to eliminate manual data management that often leads to poor data quality and ungoverned process tracking. For teams creating seamless, end-to-end solutions, Evolve automates business processes that require complex SAP data interactions with other, third-party systems like Salesforce, or that use the ODATA protocol. Traditionally, processes like these required inflexible, custom solutions that do not easily adjust to dynamic business environments. Evolve  gives you the agility and flexibility you need to compete and thrive in today's business landscape.
  18. With Evolve 20.2 we are including access to three RESTful API’s that will further enhance your digital transformation and automation efforts. They are: SAP Data API: REST API that enables direct integration with SAP for scenarios that don’t require data enrichment. It acts as the last-mile into SAP for other applications and combines eliminates the need for RPA bots to screen-scrape the UI to deliver faster, more stable process automation. Evolve Digital Access API: This RESTful API allows you to seamlessly launch Evolve workflow processes for either human-assisted workflows or completely automated sequences with your SAP ERP system.  Evolve 3rd-party API support: This RESTful API enables Evolve solution developers to easily integrate with other systems of record that have RESTful APIs, such as Salesforce or SAP’s ODATA service. You can query data from these third-party systems into your process or send  This combination of API’s available with Evolve 20.2 delivers a significant benefit to SAP teams looking to be part of larger, more complex digital transformation and automation efforts.
  19. This slide shows how these other system of records may start or update an Evolve workflow (so both Process and Data are involved in this workflow interaction). Similarly, the workflow may connect with these systems to store or retrieve information as part of the workflow execution.
  20. [Note to sales:] The main point we want to get across in this slide is that our flexible, extensible architecture enables organizations to become more agile—a key requirement in today’s fast-paced marketplace. Being able to create and modify automation solutions quickly and without big IT budgets is one of the main reasons customers replace homegrown or inflexible third-party solutions. Below are some points to clarify the bullets Support different process and data needs in one solution – examples: A vendor onboarding solution that applies different workflow logic depending on the country where products will be sold An NPI solution that supports different launch types and processes by plant or region Start small and expand your automation footprint over time – this ties back into our dynamic process linking capabilities. You can build a solution today that involves one or a few data objects and then add on over time. The classic use case for this is NPI, but it applies across the different business areas and data domains. Modify solutions easily without technical IT resources or expensive SI engagement – this enables organizations to keep up with changes in the business
  21. Note to sales: Use this slide to introduce at a high level the features that make Evolve unique. You do not need to go through each one. For deeper conversations and follow-up meetings there is content around many of these features in the Evolve slide library.
  22. Note to sales: Use this slide to explain that our platforms can make an impact across their SAP landscape—whether it’s master data or transactional data use cases.
  23. Benefits of Machine Learning Improved data entry and decision-making process through recommendations Improved data quality through ML-based checks Create rules that are not possible without ML Reduced effort and complexity to implement and update hard-coded rules Reduced time to determine business rules Reduced time to value in solution development
  24. I would like to share with you Monster Energy's process transformation story.
  25. Monster Energy was using spreadsheets and emails to track their product launches (Monster calls it NPW – New Product Worksheet).  Their process even required project managers of new products to invest hours each day tracking down status to report back to meetings and management – just another task that was eating up time.  In their words it was “organized chaos”. <click>
  26. Then in 2015, Coca-Cola and Monster entered into a partnership. This gave Monster access to aspects of Coke’s global distribution network <click> and dramatically increasing the number of new product launches (it quadrupled the number of open projects). Their current manual process simply couldn’t scale… <click> [Notes: To be clear Coca-Cola doesn’t own Monster – Coke has a 17% stake in the company] and getting the data into SAP for all the global sites soon became the bottleneck holding Monster back. So, let me share with you a little about Monster’s transformation journey. <click>
  27. First, we mapped out their existing process – something they had never done before – and there were some real aha moments here. This is where Precisely’s professional services team really began to shine – by looking beyond just the tools. Like any good process transformation project, we reviewed the people, process and technology.  This was the beginning of the true Monster Transformation that included automation, process redesign and organizational changes needed to allow Monster to move at a faster pace.   <click>
  28. Note to sales: This is a key message for us. Our NPI solution can be built to handle any type of launch process from a net new finished good or line extension to a simple ingredient change or plant extension.
  29. Out of the process workshop we identified 3 different business solutions, Point-of-Sale Materials (these are salable materials for items like T-shirts, hats and stickers), Raw materials (ingredients) and the NPI process – the overall process needed to launch a new product.  The NPI solution includes more than 8 SAP product data objects, and our modular architecture allows you to dynamically link the sub processes needed for each specific launch, even calling the independent raw material process if needed. It was obvious that Monster need to help immediately <click>
  30. [David] Highlevel overview – our solution can handle a lot of complexity and being able to process projects independently of plant was huge for Monster… Total steps = 23
  31. At the first pass they have already reduced their product launch cycle times by 50-75% depending on launch type. They now have tools and controls in place that easily allows them to collect the right data at the right time from the right people. <click> They have the visibility they need to effectively manage their product launches, <click>and the governance in place to allow business teams to take true ownership of “their” data. <click>This gives Monster trust in a repeatable process that allows them to bring new products to market faster than ever before! <click>
  32. What are we going to talk about today… Agenda: (Note to sales: You will likely modify this to fit your specific customer meeting needs)
  33. Questions? Can you also do Vendor and Customer masters too? I’m on S4 Hana will this work with my system? I have custom fields in my material master, does this work for those? We often have fields that the business is missing can you make them require even if SAP doesn’t require them? We would love to speak to you in more detail about your product data processes and how we can help you make an impact to your business , so please feel free to reach out to us.
