Transfer information from other software

Frequently Asked Question:
"We are currently running [an alternative] dental lab system. Is there any way the information can be transferred to Transactor V8?"

Answer
We may be able to import data from another system, but this will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and will be chargeable.
You may also have some manual data input and/or 'tidying' to do.

We cannot guarantee that every element or report in your old system will be transferred.


Before embarking on extracting your old data, consider too the benefits of starting afresh, entering your practices, dentists and product list first, then an opening balance for any non-balanced customer accounts (Customers menu > Add Debit/refund, or Add Payment/Credit). Read the Coffee Break Tutorial

If you can supply Transactor Support with some or all of the information in any of the formats listed below then we can analyse this data to determine the feasibility of importing your data.
