Data Migration

Data Migration is that sometimes unpleasant process that many organisations go through if they want to transfer data from one system to another.

It can save a lot of typing but can be time consuming, hard work and often a little unsatisfactory.

So, where there are only a few pieces of data to enter it may be simplest to type the records in manually. It also helps towards familiarity with the system.

Data MigrationWhere larger volumes of data are involved, we offer two standard options, depending on the level of detail you need. If neither of these is suitable, we can provide bespoke data migration at a daily rate.

We can also migrate documents, PDF files, images etc if you have them stored in your existing system.

Our standard migration options are usually built into the implementation process and, once the initial set up is completed, you can export an empty Excel spreadsheet with the headings that represent the data fields you are using. Simply populate that spreadsheet, send it securely to us and we will upload the data for you irrespective of how many records you wish to import.

Please contact us if you would like to know more about the process and costs – we have a useful document which will explain it all.

The Data Import Module

In addition to this, some of our clients have reason to import data from another system on a regular basis and do not wish to pay for a migration every time this happens. We've developed our data migration software so that it can be used within an organisation, by a system administrator, to upload data as required. This could include tasks such as repetitive data imports and updates to existing records, e.g. for data cleansing.
