CRM Migration

Avoiding data Loss During Migration

Moving data from one CRM platform to another can be complex.

Prior to licensing Microsoft Dynamics CRM, many of our customers were using a different CRM platform. A common issue that comes up during the implementation planning phase is how to safely move data and objects from an old CRM system to a new platform, without having to manually key data or recreate objects in the new system.

While transitioning to a new CRM system offers many benefits, strategies for retaining as much of the existing data as possible must be considered in order to avoid data loss and significant business interruption during the migration. Learn about CRM migration best practices, perform advance planning, and assemble a qualified team to manage and perform the migration.

Reducing Complexity

Migration can degrade into an overly complex and risky process.

ASCENTREN's team has extensive experience migrating data from many different tyes of CRM systems to Microsoft's modern Dynamics 365 CRM platform. We use tools and other proven methods of transferring data and objects from old CRM systems into the new system in order to reduce unnecessary complexities and smooth out the transition.

Plan ahead

  • Evaluate the CRM source environment.
  • Identify data assets to be migrated or filtered.
  • Plan object mapping, fields, records and workflows.
  • Identify potential issues, cleanse the source.
  • Prepare for migration; develop a timeline.
  • Estimate time and effort needed to migrate.
  • Determine which reports will validate data integrity.
