Exchequer  Data Migration

Migration Services

Exchequer enjoys a high level of customer retention but sometimes for different reasons a decision is made to move away. If this decision has been made then the customer will invariably want to migrate some or all of their data to the new system. We can help with this process (known to be fraught with complications) by providing the data in an identical table structure, either in MS SQL or Oracle MySQL databases. We do this using the ExSync Server engine as well as providing ExReport to help with the query building needed to ‘shape’ the data for the new system. Both products can be provided on a service basis, although ExReport is often purchased to provide cost effective on-going archive reporting.

How Not To Migrate From Exchequer to Another Software Solution!

Time and again we get calls from weary project managers and consultants who made the assumption that the data migration from Exchequer to Microsoft NAV, AX, GP or Sage Pastel, Netsuite………… the list goes on... is just a matter of making an ODBC connection and pulling the data into a SQL database; a few quick transformation queries and migration is game, set and match to the new system provider over Exchequer. Sadly, you could not be further from the truth or your budget!

When reality dawns and the budget is spent on consultants coming in at horrendous daily rates and still you are no nearer to completion and D- Day looms. You go to Google and end up here!

Fact: You can’t just pull the data from Exchequer via ODBC, CSV or OLE (not all of it) When you do you have to convert the split integers and transform the date time formats.

From our experience, data extraction can throw up anomalies on queries because the Exchequer database can hold other data that bears no relationship to the table that contains it. This data bears no relation to ‘normal’ database rules and the queries break. The clock keeps on ticking relentlessly towards D-day with an unhappy outcome.

Exchequer world is not like any other. If you make any assumptions about anything, don’t assume getting the data out is easy or for the faint-hearted.

At Exchequer Dynamics, we guarantee to get the data out of Exchequer and into an SQL database ready to be queried into the new system. We will even help you understand the way Exchequer puts it all together. We will do it on a reasonable daily rate on our premises, with significant compute power and demonstrate the results. If you are not happy we will delete the data and we will refund your deposit.

No matter how big the data set, we can get the data faster and more easily than anyone else in the market. This is what we do... Exchequer Data Solutions. If you want proof you can talk to some of our customers.

We can take your pain away and give you a nice tidy SQL database with all the data from Exchequer. We can transform as we go and if required we can do calculations and transformations on the data as we migrate it.

Talk to us and save yourself a lot of anguish. We delight in delivering.
