Professional data conversion and migration solutions provide us with the ability to deploy new applications fast while dedicating fewer resources to data conversion and migration projects. We try to take the headaches out of conversion projects.
Our consulting team utilizes a phased approach in analyzing your current data and business process to ensure the solution helps your company fully realize the benefits of your software investment. Phase One includes "Discovery & Design" in which we walk through current data and processes to design what will occur during Phase Two or the "Implementation Phase".
Depending upon the product we are implementing and the size and complexity of the company, its structure and data set, we tailor the conversion process to meet your needs. During Implementation, we are typically doing all the conversion from legacy product to mapping to product import. This is either done on-site or in most cases off-site, where we use "Best Practices" conversion templates to complete all entity, account, and/or asset classes, categories, asset types, books, and other data elements relevant for the product being implemented. We are also able to mimimize your tax team’s involvement as much as possible so that they can focus on their daily work.
All data import is automated and tied out and the product conversion "signed off on". Phase Three or the full "Deployment Phase" is where we work with you on completing and signing off on all end user acceptance testing and completing training and transition to support in the live environment.
The conversion project is carefully managed with attention to detail. In addition, since all our consultants are experienced accounting, tax and technology professionals, we add value to every conversion project in the form of data integrity identification and clean-up. Additionally, we are able to raise questions and make suggestions based on many years of corporate tax and accounting experience. Often times, we will be able to identify tax risk and tax liability areas as well as process change improvements that can be made between tax, accounting and IT in order to make sure proper controls are in place.
Specifically, our specialists have successfully converted asset data from Oracle, People Soft, SAP, JD Edwards and various other general ledger systems. In addition, we have converted from other standalone third party asset depreciation modules, and find that we have streamlined this process. Asset data conversion in general does present unique challenges in that accurate results are dependant on solid knowledge of ever changing and often arcane tax and depreciation rules. Our people bring great depth and breadth of experience to the job that gets it done right the first time.
We proudly support and utilize the Microsoft Office 2007 products in all of our data conversion projects.
