Moving Your Data Safely To New Executive Search Software

Data migration is always a daunting process for any firm implementing new executive search software. It may seem like a complicated and time-consuming project that could lead to unacceptable downtime. The process must be fast, simple, secure and accurate. No ifs, no buts. The good news is that data migrations are much more straight-forward than you may think.


Our data migration experience


The FileFinder implementation team has carried out hundreds of migrations from competitor systems over the last decade. We have perfected our data migration process from many products. Our team migrates data regularly from Invenias, Cluen Encore, Profile, Bond Adapt and ACT. Data migration also works from your spreadsheets and Outlook contacts. In addition, we can assist with data cleaning and de-duplication to allow you to start with the best possible data set.


Our experienced team of project managers works on data migrations around the world. We can carry out the work outside of office hours or even during weekends if required, to minimize disruption.




How does it all work?


There are two different paths to successful data migrations. It is up to you to decide which approach works best for your firm:


  • The first approach is to let us do all the work with little involvement from your part. We’ll review your data and will tell you what we can migrate safely and quickly into FileFinder. This requires you only to check that the migration has been completed accurately. You can then go live after signing off the process.
  • The second approach is to migrate only the data that you have specified, so you can leave behind any unnecessary data. This path will require hands-on participation from your end, as we’ll have to sit down with you to review exactly what data you need to migrate – before testing and reviewing and going live.


Our team of experts will ensure a smooth and stress-free process. You can focus on your normal search activities without worrying about disruption – whether you are a single user, or a larger firm with many offices and multiple databases.


What happens next?


Once you go live, our training team will step in to ensure you and your team can familiarize themselves with the new system and hit the ground running from day one. On top of dedicated training and 24/5 support, we offer an extensive library of training materials and videos in the Client Area of our website, as well as regular online training clinics focusing on specifics topics – which can also be accessed on demand.


When you switch to a new executive search system, you want to know that your data is in safe hands. We will take you through the whole process as quickly and smoothly as possible. You can focus on what you do best in the knowledge that the process will be fast, simple, secure and accurate. No ifs, no buts.
