Data migration and data quality

At the cornerstone of any successfull project.

Another key important work-stream when migrating from one system to another is the migration of your existing data into BillingLabs.​

Migration step

The migration consists in extracting the data from the old sources, adapting and formatting it to match BillingLabs’ data structure, and finally inserting it in BillingLabs. It is always an adhoc project in itself as it depends on the company’s size, organization, and the complexity of the products and offers to migrate. ​This part can be handled internally, within your company, or subcontracted to us.
