As AlphaLAW Junior utilises a very old-fashioned type of database, it is difficult to extract data from.
However, we can still successfully perform a conversion and these will typically include at least all of the following;
- Clients – including names and addresses
- Matter Types
- Fee Earners
- Accounting Periods
- Client/Matter Ledgers
- Time Recording
- Nominal Ledgers
- Nominal Ledger Transactions
- VAT Liability Opening Balance
- Bank Opening Balances
We will definitely want to perform a trial conversion prior to scheduling a live data migration. You will need to send us a backup of your current AlphaLAW Junior data. The last backup we received was on floppy disks which meant we had to buy a floppy disk drive. Following the trial conversion, we will deliver the data back to you in Insight so you can check that the conversion is correct and understand the extent of the migration that is possible to achieve. Any changes to matter types, departments, fee earner codes, etc. can all be agreed following the trial conversion.
The Live conversion will normally take around three days to complete. Part of this process will be for us to check all of the balances match those from AlphaLAW Junior prior to the live conversion and these will be checked against a series of reports that you have run before taking the backup of the AlphaLAW Junior data.
When you’re dealing with the experts, it doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t need to be a hassle.
