Best Master Data Practice

The Coca-Cola Company

The Coca-Cola Company considers their master data a strategic asset that needs a focused governance effort to ensure the quality required by the business. In order to achieve this, they’ve used the Winshuttle platform to create solutions for management of critical master data, including customers, materials and GL accounts. The company has a Six Sigma mentality and they have demonstrated how Winshuttle can be successfully used to take a Lean approach to management of master data.

Best Finance Usage


Hu-Friedy purchased Winshuttle with a few transactions in mind and began writing scripts to automate all of their complex financial transactions. One of their most valuable use cases is the upload & verification of KP06 data for their annual budget planning cycle. The automation of this process benefits over 100 departments and saves them several weeks’ worth of time during one of the busiest times of the year. They are constantly discovering new use cases to bring value to the entire company, AND they’ve officially phased out their “other” software.

Biggest Business Impact


Pactiv used Winshuttle to create a process to copy an existing manufactured item – including the Basic Data, the Bom, Routing, CAPP and cost – and create a new item changing only the Item number, description, and adding the ability to create a new component (box/Bag/etc). Previously, the process from start to finish took the MDO team over an hour to manually enter all of the data – now it takes 5 minutes. This has resulted in huge time savings in their Facilities that change art or packaging print on a wide range of products.

Winshuttle Hero

Luke Ross, Sobeys

Luke Ross from Sobeys exemplifies the values Winshuttle strives to live by. He was nominated by his colleagues not only because of the sheer volume of solutions he’s created for the company – but also because of his commitment to serve as a mentor to others. He has trained most of their developers, and holds workshops to help end users see the potential of what can be accomplished using Winshuttle. He is the first point of contact for any and all Winshuttle questions in Shared Services and is known for resolving issues efficiently and effectively.

Best Master Data Practice

Cooper Tire

In an effort to reduce time to market and improve material planning processes, Cooper Tire developed a complete end-to-end PLM process solution that allows the possibility of dozens of new materials, in a single request. The implementation of this process significantly reduced data entry, increased data quality, and enhanced visibility into the end-to-end PLM process, and its status and gaps. They’ve been able to shift from managing the data to managing the process, which is where even more process improvements can be made.
