CRM Migrage vs. Scribe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have any experience using both CRM Migrate (http://www.crmmigrate.com) and Scribe (http://www.scribesoft.com)?  I'm trying to make a decision between the two and don't know enough about CRM Migrate to really compare.  I know Scribe gives you the ability to transform data but I don't know about CRM Migrate.  Anyone have thoughts comparing the two?

    Thanks,

  • I use Scribe pretty extensively for migration and integration work - it's been great for me. - The Migrate utility seems to be more oriented to conversion of SFDC data to CRM. - not oriented to ongoing data imports / and the inevitable integration / data management that I use Scribe extensively for. I know some are sensitive to price, but it's been absolutely worth the cost when it is compared with alternatives for the integration and quick 'one-off' imports of 'joe's list 'o leads' - or updates of customer data with info from other sources that weren't available at conversion.

    That's my 2cents -

  • CRMMigrate is specifically designed for migration of Salesforce to Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

    Preparation is simple, importing our customisation file which adds required fields for a standard Saleforce system, add your own additional entities/fields to support any customisations you wish to bring across from Salesforce.com, add ALL existing (live or retired) Salesforce users into CRM (the retired ones can be retired in CRM, but this maintains the historical integrity, add Currencies, custom fields

     

    CRMMigrate takes you through  a wizard style migration setup via tabs and allows editing of our supplied standard mappings and/or adding mapping for custom fields easily.  There is a tab for User mapping and Status mapping.   The migration is completed in one migrate process rather than separate DTS for each entity and includes population of picklists.  A record of data migrated is maintained throughout the migration so any unplanned interruptions to the migration are handled so that user simply restarts process without needing to know the point of failure or having to carry out any resetting of source/target system this makes the migration process very fault tolerant.  It supports Microsoft Dynamics CRM4 and CRM2011 hosted and online.

     

    In trial mode CRMMigrate will allow you to carry out the entire process on a small sub set of data (25 accounts and associated data).
