Process Runner overview

What is Process Runner?

Process Runner is a data management software that helps businesses in IT, manufacturing, supply chain, and other sectors automate SAP transactions using Microsoft Excel. The platform enables managers to manage data processing operations across various SAP modules including finance and cost controlling (FICO), materials management, quality management, and more.

Administrators can execute various SAP transaction codes (t-codes), GUI scripting, and business APIs to manage data on a unified interface. Process Runner allows teams to automatically handle inquiries, quotations, sales orders, journal entries, and purchase requisitions using built-in templates. It also offers a Microsoft Excel plug-in, enabling IT professionals to create and modify data from SAP applications in spreadsheets.

Process Runner lets businesses schedule tasks, manage large accounting documents, and process various errors in a centralized dashboard. Employees can also transform, migrate, and secure data in compliance with governance protocols to prevent accidental damages.

Multi Use Process Bandaid

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-11-30
Review Source: Capterra

For us process runner is a bandaid for automation. It’s versatile, and can be used to fix issues quicker than a code change in SAP that could otherwise take weeks to implement.

Pros
With a database license, we use process runner to replace most of the most repetitive tasks in Sap, including order placements, data change, subsitutions/transitions, and document cancellation.

Cons
It can get costly, and licensing can be difficult to manage if you don’t go with an enterprise or server license. Since it is generally tied to a user, it’s hard to arrange backups for people who vacation and our primary developer has to work often for an hour even on her vacation days if the business itself is open and running. It’s hardly faster than your fastest employee, but is way more tireless and efficient

Process Runner for SAP Master Data Management

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2021-01-05
Review Source: Capterra

We were able to greatly improve our mass master data management processes in both speed and accuracy as well as expand the number of data sets we maintained. It reduced training time for our master data team, as well as empowering them to manage the their data without the need for IT resources.

Pros
It enabled us to move away from the SAP LSMW tool for mass management of master data in SAP. We were able to eliminate the need for a programmer to run mass updates, enabling the work to be done within our master data team with limited IT support on a day-to-day basis.

Cons
For a SMB, the cost per license is high.

Process Runner - Easy to implement - Very User Friendly

The overall experience with process runner has been outstanding!!! It has done wonders for my department and for our organization. Not only do we use it in 90% of our daily processing, it also has enabled us to develop a solution when we have had needs in others areas of the business on an ad hoc basis. We have realized our investment many times over. Great product!!!

Pros
The software was very easy to implement. We did so without IT involvement. The product is extremely user friendly. In SAP, we previously used LSMW's. We changed all of our processes to Process Runner. This allowed us to be more flexible to in meeting every-changing business requirements. We were able to automate processes to the point where reduced staffing by 33%. The product paid for itself in one year.

Cons
There really was not anything to not like about the software. At times, the response from customer service was not always helpful the first time around, but we would eventually get there to resolve the issue.

The Key to Efficient SAP Workflow

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

We update thousands of records every day with Process Runner. Our entire Engineering change process is built on it.

Pros
Process Runner is simple to deploy. It uses existing SAP security and requires no special installation or server-side changes to use. It's simple to get started, but it can do so much. After nearly 10 years, there is no SAP process that Process Runner has not been able to automate. When I do find something I can't figure out, I can turn to customer support and often get a solution in a few hours. Just today, we talked about updating 150,000 line items. Other groups in the business gasped and talked about the days it would take to do. My team just shrugged and told the managers, " We have Process Runner, it'll take a few hours."

Cons
I would really like enhanced threading. Multi-thread processes are wonderful, but sometimes updates will fail because the record is locked due to another update. I'd like the ability specify some type of key that tell Process Runner "Don't try to update more then one of these records at a time."

Very Useful and easy to use

We have used to upload initial master data when we integrate a new company, brand, we use our existing scripts, we can modify them easily and the process is very convenient. It is easy to involve the data/process owner and create new recordings. It is easy to validate and very convenient.

Pros
it is easy to use, provides good results. Once you have a process set it makes it very easy to fill the data and to do the upload. It is flexible and can be used for different types of data.

Cons
If you need to eliminate fields or add, and depending on the transaction type (materials, customers) you have to have a deeper knowledge of the flow, fields, special commands to end a transaction, to save. It is also hard to include a new tab or screen.
