Extracting data from your systems

Retrieving information from your existing systems.

Why do you need to extract data from your systems?

Because you're working in a small or medium-sized business, you're probably not thinking about "Big Data". You're not trying to predict macro trends or deploy an AI strategy. As good as these things are, you have more urgent matters to deal with.

Using the data locked away in your legacy systems is fundamental for your business success. This is not a nice-to-have, or "future proofing" exercise. You need it, and you need it now.

That's because you either need to:

  • answer fundamental questions with your data, or
  • you need to do something with the data.

Answering questions with your data

You need the information locked away in your existing software systems to answer the questions of:

  • Are we making a profit?
  • Which are our most profitable clients, and how can we get more just like them?
  • Which of our services are most profitable, and how can we sell more of the same?
  • Which industries have historically bought from us, and how can we better target these industries?

Working with your data

You need to extract the data from within your existing systems, because to need it to:

  • See which customers have outstanding invoices, so that you can chase them for payment
  • Send credit control letters or statements to customers
  • Pay suppliers, or control your spending
  • Just send a mailshot to all customers

The list goes on! We know your business will have specific scenarios too.
