The value of converting historical data during a system migration is always an emotionally charged discussion. We have successfully converted hundreds of clients over the years to Sage 100 Payroll, Scissortail HCM, Sage Abra, and Sage HRMS and we understand the issues surrounding the value of data. Regardless of the system you are moving to, the following information should be considered.
When it comes to migrating data, HR data is trickier than payroll data. It is easy to say "I want it all migrated," but you have to consider how clean the data is and how much you access it. HR data tends to include more information that is harder to limit, where with payroll data you are looking at transactional data for a date range to bring into the new system, HR migrations, much like PR data migrations will need clean, concise, and only the most important data your organization needs. Here are some items to consider when determining what data to migrate:
Data migration is a time to look hard at your data and what you need to move forward with a new system. You don't want to bring in any 'trash' or incorrect data into the new system, but bring the right clean data that you need to get your job done.
Do you know how to export the data you're looking for? If not, we have created a long list of helpful resources and videos on how to use multiple HR softwares, to get you through the process easily and efficiently.
