Conversion to Clear Books from other Programmes is too manual
Problem reported by Tom Trainer 8 years ago
To convert a ledger to Clear Books from another programme, I need to manually create new accounts and input the b/fwd TB and all the outstanding sales and purchase invoices at the conversion date; possibly fixed assets too. This could be an enormous amount of inputting. I don't want to do this inputting and it is hard enough trying to convince a client of the benefits of a new accounting programme without telling them they have to reinput all their outstanding sales and purchase invoices. This will make the difference between a client agreeing to convert or not.
Convincing clients to move to Clear Books would be a lot easier if there were import routines for the opening data. Maybe you could partner up with Ledgerscope to do it http://www.ledgerscope.com/movemybooks/ .
