StarfishETL Releases Six New CSV Connectors

Popular Connectors Pull Data from Flat Files to Cloud

Chicago, IL (January 3, 2019) —  StarfishETL, a powerful cloud migration and Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), announced the release of six new connectors to move CSV files to Cloud storage. The connectors enable the following:

  • CSV via Google Drive
  • CSV via Amazon S3
  • CSV via [S]FTP
  • CSV via SharePoint
  • CSV via Box
  • CSV via Dropbox

Companies that want the ability to pull data from flat CSV files into their Cloud storage can now do so using these connectors. File management is simplified with automatic uploads of the files to the Cloud. Users also can perform mass data exports from their CRM to any of the six Cloud storage platforms while keeping the data secure. Using the connectors, jobs can run on scheduled intervals to stream data directly from the CSV source without ever copying the files themselves to the StarfishETL server. 

Many companies utilize CSV files as a secure, offline way to transfer data. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems maintain the format for exporting and moving mass quantities of customer data between systems because CSV files are easy to manipulate using common desktop tools. However, maintaining data integrity can be a challenge when entering CSV file information into a Cloud system. To transport the data from one location to another, users must either use scripts or expose the connectivity to a shared location. StarfishETL resolves these data sharing concerns by securely moving the data from the CSV while maintaining data integrity. With StarfishETL, CSV data can be moved to Cloud file storage systems with less susceptibility for error.

StarfishETL is a powerful platform used to migrate business data to and from many sources; as well as integrate ERP, marketing automation, social media, email, and obscure systems with CRM. Its framework supports projects — no matter the size or complexity — with its Cloud, on-premises, and hybrid capabilities. The product continues to grow and was recently recognized by review site G2Crowd as a High-Performer, and by FinancesOnline for Great User Experience.

StarfishETL Releases New Cloud Migration Maps for NetSuite and SuiteCRM

Chicago, IL (December 5, 2018) —  StarfishETL, a powerful cloud migration and Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), has just announced the release of two new CRM migration maps in its Cloud Migration Wizard. The new maps migrate data for NetSuite and SuiteCRM users.

The Cloud Migration Wizard lets even non-technical users take control of their migration through a guided Web experience. Users can choose the data they prefer to migrate, so they are only charged for the selected data. This option gives migrating companies more control over budget by deciding how much they’d like to spend on their migration. The Cloud Migration Wizard also includes the ability to migrate data stored in custom fields, ensuring important data does not have to be sacrificed when migrating to a new application.

“The ability to migrate data efficiently utilizing StarfishETL’s Cloud Migration Wizard allows companies to select the best applications for their needs knowing that their data is easily portable,” says StarfishETL Sales and Marketing Manager, Scott Smallbeck.

While the new maps migrate all Accounts, Contacts, Leads, Opportunities, Products, Tickets, and History information; they also migrate Notes, Attachments, and customized fields.

Other pre-configured Wizard maps include combinations to-and-from Act!, bpm’online, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Infor CRM, Salesforce, and SugarCRM.

StarfishETL’s migration functions are robust, allowing users to transfer enterprise-level loads of data or restrict the migration to smaller data sets at their discretion. The product continues to grow and was recently recognized by G2Crowd as a High-Performer, and by FinancesOnline for Great User Experience. StarfishETL plans to release new pre-configured maps throughout 2019.

StarfishETL fended off six of its closest competitors to position the product in the top three of all companies in the category.

StarfishETL ranked as a high performer with high satisfaction in the Cloud report. To qualify for standings in the Cloud Migration category, companies must: sync applications with Cloud storage systems, assist with migration of large numbers of files and various file types through the Cloud, and provide data security tools, backup assistance, or integration with backup software to keep files safe during migration.

StarfishETL ranked high in two Cloud categories, rising to the top three products for Relationship Index score. The standards for a Cloud Relationship score include: ease of doing business with, likelihood users would recommend the company, and the quality of the support.

“We see our business model as helping our customers grow their business through simple, relevant data exchanges that are easily managed and are as risk free as possible,” says StarfishETL General Manager, David Wallace. “This is not easy to do when integrating systems, especially legacy systems. Our placement in the Grid by our customers shows us what we’re doing well and provides the feedback we need to do even better.”
