Latest Project Completed

Updated: Apr 8, 2019

Recently a client requested moving their entire billing and stock system, including customers, inventory, suppliers, etc., from a legacy system on a single PC to a cloud-based service with multiple users.

One obstacle encountered was that the legacy system held over 100,000 product lines. With the chosen cloud-based system, as with several others, there is a restriction on the number of lines that can be imported in one go. To keep costs as low as possible, an efficient solution was needed.

A CSV file containing the product data was exported from the legacy system and then split into single files; a process that was automated via a few lines of code. These new files met the import restrictions and the cloud-based system was successfully updated over a period of just a few hours.

The project was a combination of onsite and remote work, with no additional software or hardware required.
