Winshuttle Partner for PIM Integrations & Consulting
Start with Data is pleased to be an official Winshuttle partner. Our experts work closely with Winshuttle to provide a PIM solution which is tailored to your precise needs, no more, no less.
What is Winshuttle?
Winshuttle is a global company with sales and support offices worldwide. In February 2019, Winshuttle merged with EnterWorks, a leading solutions provider of Product Information Management (PIM), Digital Asset Management (DAM), and Master Data Management (MDM) solutions, which enable differentiated and tailored user experiences. Winshuttle Enterworks deploys its proprietary Agile Data Fabric™ Technology to weave together data domains. The Winshuttle Enterworks platform offers Multi-Domain Experience Management which builds on a convergence of its MDM, PIM, and DAM tools.
The Enterworks Platform
Winshuttle sees architecture as the key to innovation, especially in B2B2C models with complex commerce interactions. The architecture of the Winshuttle Enterworks PIM empowers companies to manage this complexity in a digitally accelerated environment. At the same time, it is designed to adapt rapidly to integrate emerging technologies in order to continue being competitive.
As a key business line, Winshuttle Enterworks is now able to leverage the capabilities provided by Winshuttle. The Winshuttle Enterworks PIM connects through its Agile Data FabricTM to its MDM Enable platform.
The principal features of the Winshuttle Enterworks platform include:
- Cutting-edge technology, including a cloud-ready platform with scalability inbuilt
- agile SOA / micro-services architecture – capacity to power future artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and machine learning (ML).
- User-friendliness: business users can easily configure, manage, and update the Winshuttle Enterworks platform. Business user adoption is facilitated and achieves the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) among PIM platforms
- Fast Time to Value: Winshuttle Enterworks can be implemented in 90-days, accelerating its business value and guaranteeing early ROI
- B2B2C Enablement: the platform enables end-to-end collaboration throughout the value chain for all company types – manufacturers, distributors or retailers.

Our Winshuttle Enterworks PIM solutions
Each Winshuttle/Enterworks PIM can be configured with the features and benefits which best fit your needs. During and after exhaustive discovery work with internal stakeholders, we advise you on the best edition for your business circumstances – Design of the processes, data modelling & technology solutions to align with your strategic vision.
Winshuttle Enterworks onboarder
The Winshuttle/EnterWorks Onboarding Portal permits organizations to create an onboarding workflow which stipulates data standards for suppliers as well as notifying internal teams when new products are introduced. They can also flag missing data and other triggers that may need attention.
The portal is not based on hard-coded workflows, which would require adaptation of your business processes; its drag-and-drop interface makes collaboration much easier for business and technical users (internal and external) to model the most complex of business processes.
Winshuttle Enterworks migration
Product data migration is a complex process and Start with Data has a proven method for executing product data migration, with a blueprint approach to migrating legacy product data into your Winshuttle Enterworks PIM.
This includes the following phases:
Winshuttle Enterworks integration
By establishing data quality standards, taxonomies and custom PIM configuration, it is easier to consolidate and integrate all sizes, types, and formats of data for organisations operating in any industry.
The Winshuttle Enterworks PIM is a multi-domain data hub, which drives better business outcomes throughout the organisation. It is also much more cost-effective than buying separate products to manage each data domain.
Another key element is the profile given to Data Governance – data quality, stewardship, taxonomy, naming conventions and so on are all factored into the integration of your Winshuttle Enterworks PIM with legacy systems like ERP or CRM
Winshuttle Enterworks syndication
The Winshuttle Enterworks syndication platform offers a range of key features. It allows users to:
- Set product completeness criteria for channel publishing schedules
- Plan marketing campaigns using the built-in GANT chart function
- Configure queries to automatically push relevant product attributes and entities to the correct outbound digital channel
Additionally, if your business is looking for scalability, the PIM supports multi-country, multi-lingual, and culture-specific content. With the PIM platform, organisations can automatically generate geo-specific output files and publications which comply with local product regulations. It can also match customers with localised product descriptions, pricing, and shipping procedures.
