Support Team Improvement for Flibco | Ascendix

We were assigned an excellent project manager named Chris, who we worked with for the duration of the project. She brought in a few additional resources as needed along the way, as long as a dedicated data import specialist. Ascendix truly focuses more effort on improving their product and supporting current customers than just selling and marketing which is rare these days. Too many companies just try and make the sale and then pass you along down the chain with often some missed expectations. That never happened with Ascendix and they worked with us every step of the way until all our objectives were completed which is why the launch (and the 4 months since) have been so successful for us.

Salesforce Migration FAQ

What is Data Migration Process in Salesforce?

Once you’ve selected the best option to import or export your data, here are the most effective practices for arranging and migrating your data:

 

1. Choose the data you want to migrate

Decide which Objects to transfer, for example, only the Contact information from each Account or only migrate the Account information from a particular field.

 

2. Design data templates 

Build an Excel template for each Object. Since Objects have imperative relationships which determine the order of data migration, identify the required fields for each Object.

 

3. Populate your data templates

Analyze your data before filling in it in the template. You can review data sets by loading one record, checking the results, then loading all records.

 

4. Prepare the target CRM

​Think about building custom fields to keep any legacy ID information. You can give the custom field the “External ID” attribute to make it indexed. This will help preserve relationships and help you create custom reports for data validation.

You need to create custom fields to keep data stored in non-standard fields in the source system. For example, if your previous system stored Home Phone for your Users, think about creating that custom field in the target CRM too.

 

5. Validate the data

Follow these steps to validate your migration:

  1. Generate custom reports to validate record counts and create an overall picture of migration.
  2. Spot check the data.
  3. Examine exception reports to look at what data was not transferred.​
