Importing Exporting and Backing up data
Importing your existing data
could not be easier than with Tradepoint.
Your Tradepoint data import wizards can be accessed by
clicking the top left yellow cube and selecting import data. These wizards operate as embedded
plug-ins enabling you to import data from every standard export file type and
even often custom “propriatary” file types. Some examples of standard export file
types are XML, ASCCI, comma delimited.
Custom file types might be Access, Excel, Quickbooks act. Creating a custom import is a breeze in
Tradepoint and because of our unique Plug-in architecture, creating new plug-in
imports can be done in a relatively short period of time.
Importing data to Tradepoint
is a simple 3 stage process.
- Specify what type of information you are importing: contact
information, accounting information, document information act.
- Specify the file
you wish to import from. For example: contacts.mdb or clients.txt
- Data bind the fields. For example: What was entitled “clients”
in the imported file is now called “customers” in Tradepoint. What was once “contact phone number”
is now “work phone number” in Tradepoint.
After you are finished, simply
click the submit button and Tradepoint will atomatically import seemingly
unlimited amount of information all at once. Source lists of hundreds of thousands of
entries can be added in mere seconds or minutes. Tradepoint will then synchronize
the contact information with every other location within your company, allowing
access by only security enabled users of course. Your old centralized database is now
decentralized and accessable through your entire corporation in seconds.
Exporting data is also a breeze
with Tradepoint. Simply click the
type of information you would like to export and you are finished. Tradepoint will export your needed data

to store a complete, encrypted backup of your entire database, this too can be
done through the wizard found in: Backup / Restore Database menu option when you
click the top left yellow cube. You
can then take this backed up database and store it on tape drives, external hard
drives, CD Roms or DVDs and any other medium you so choose. Because Tradepoint is node
synchronized, there will always be a backup kept of your entire database on
every computer within your company, however many clients still prefer to store
scheduled backups of their database at different locations. Tradepoint is flexable to your
