Precisely expands data management capability with Winshuttle acquisition

Precisely has announced a definitive agreement to acquire process automation and master data management software provider Winshuttle from Symphony Technology Group (STG). The announcement follows the completion of Precisely’s acquisition of data governance software provider, Infogix, earlier this month.

In Winshuttle, Precisely is acquiring comprehensive process automation and master data management software for managing, moving and validating large data volumes spanning multiple systems of record, including SAP ERP.

With Winshuttle having worked with SAP RPA since it was founded in 2003, Precisely will benefit from the company’s deep expertise in SAP environments, as well as its extensive portfolio, which includes Unilever, Philips, Kelloggs, Kohler, Lilly, Siemens, Maersk Oil, Eon and Centrica.

Josh Rogers, CEO of Precisely, said: “Process automation is essential in delivering higher quality data so companies can be confident in their business decisions. Adding Winshuttle’s process automation and master data management software, with its deep expertise in SAP environments, will enable Precisely to extend our portfolio of differentiated solutions and further our customers’ journeys to achieving data integrity.”

John Pierson, CEO of Winshuttle, added: “With a shared approach to putting customers first and empowering business and IT to collaborate in powerful ways, Precisely is a great fit for our mission to help drive better business through data and is an ideal home for our talented team. Precisely’s leadership in data integrity and focus on trusted data perfectly complement Winshuttle’s software portfolio and domain expertise.
