Why Use Tigg's Import Feature?

Time Savings: Manually entering data can be time-consuming and error-prone. With Tigg's import feature, you can quickly upload large datasets, including master data (such as customers, suppliers, accounts and products with opening balances) and accounting transactions (such as journal vouchers, invoices, and purchase bills), all in just a few clicks.

Accuracy and Consistency: When migrating from another system, maintaining data accuracy is crucial. Tigg's import process ensures that your records are consistent and error-free. You can map fields from your existing data to Tigg's format, minimizing discrepancies.

Effortless Transition: If you're switching from a different software, Tigg's import feature simplifies the transition. You won't need to manually recreate all your data—just export it from your old system and import it into Tigg. It’s as simple as that.

Best Practices for Data Import

Clean Your Data: Before importing, clean up your data. Remove duplicates, correct inconsistencies, and ensure proper formatting.

Test with a Subset: If you're importing a large dataset, test the process with a smaller subset first. This helps identify any issues before the full import.

Remember, data import doesn't have to be a headache—let Tigg handle it for you!
