Data Conversion


Converting your existing data to work with the Senior Systems school management software is a key component of the implementation process.

Accuracy is critical, so we take the time to make sure it’s done right before you go live, and we work with you throughout the process to resolve any issues with your data. There are three basic parts to the data conversion process:

  • Preliminary Data – Approximately 2 to 3 months prior to implementation, you send us a set of data files and reports for your existing data. We use these to build and test the conversion routines, and contact you with questions or data issues that we encounter.
  • Actual Data – Approximately 7 to 10 days before implementation, after we have perfected the process with the preliminary data, you send us the actual data files for conversion and loading. Once we are comfortable that the data is correct, we proceed with the installation.
  • Review Process – During the installation and training process, we provide you with conversion reports for review, as well as a list of any remaining tasks that your staff may need to perform to complete the data. Any problems or issues that are discovered throughout this process are brought to our attention promptly so that we can address them right away.
