The ACET team has a large amount of experience importing data from various data sources including 3rd party applications.
Specific import routines have been developed, which identify any validation issues that can then be resolved prior to import, thus giving the client confidence in the data and database.
The time necessary to complete an import depends entirely on the quality of the data supplied. If the data is 100% clean, then an import can take approximately 3 days for an equipment list of 10,000 items. If there are errors and validation issues it can take 10 plus days.
The process used for each import from a 3rd party database or data source is shown in the diagram below.
