Switching Software

Switching Software

We know that the prospect of switching to a new software provider can seem like a mammoth task, but we’d like to reassure you that if you have found the right provider they will support you every step of the way!

Migrating from other providers

When it comes to handling data, we’re seasoned pros! We accept data in many different formats and have experience migrating from many other software providers, too.

Each data migration is tailored to your needs to ensure that your transition to PPS is a smooth as possible. Before we get the ball rolling, we’ll talk through your requirements and expectations and we’ll arrange an assessment of your current data.

Data assessments are a really important part of the migration process. When we get a sample of your data we can tell you which parts can be translated into PPS and we’ll do our best to leave nothing behind, including accounts and clinical notes! We also do ‘dry runs’ where we’ll give you a sample of the converted data to make sure you are happy with it before moving forward.

We work hard to create conversion routines where possible to keep the costs down for you. This means that if we have migrated data from a software provider before, we may have already created the tools we need to import your data into PPS, and so we spend less time on unpicking the technical stuff, our costs are lower and we can pass that saving onto you.

We price data migrations fairly, any charges that are applicable are simply to cover the costs of our time and resources. The real value in data conversions, from our perspective, is that you have access to all of your important data via PPS.

GDPR

With the introduction of new GDPR in 2018, how you manage your patient data has never been more important. Electronic data is easier to keep tabs on, especially when it’s all in one place. It’s much easier to fulfil GDPR requests if your data is all in one place.

Minimise set-up time

Familiarising yourself with new software is a task in itself. Having access to your data makes the transition process much smoother and leaves you with the time to focus setting up your shiny new software to suit your clinic needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am using another provider, can you convert this data?

Yes, absolutely, we are well versed with migrating data from other providers. We can also help with exporting your data from your current software package.

We use Excel

You can upload your client lists from Excel into PPS using our built-in upload tool. If you have any further data in Excel, such as accounts data and appointments, we can assess this data with the potential to import into your PPS database, too.

We use a document storage software, can these be bulk uploaded?

It depends on the format that the documents are stored in but 9 times out of 10 we’ll be able to migrate these across for you. We will just need to take a look at the format.

Can you migrate my clinical notes, too?

Yes, we can usually convert all of your data into PPS including:

Appointments, Accounts, Clinical Notes, Documents, Client Details.

Is data migration with PPS expensive?

Each data migration is priced on an individual basis. We take our time to carefully assess your data, requirements and discuss your expectations.

Once we have assessed your data we can give you a quote based on the time and resource required for the migration process, so you won’t be charged any standard fees or minimum costs.

We do our best to keep prices as low as possible and charge fairly based on the effort required to complete the data migration.
