Billing & Pricing Details

Pricing: How is the data migration price calculated?

The pricing for your data migration is determined by various factors:

  • Number of Records: The quantity of records on your source platform, including tickets, companies, changes, problems, contacts, agents, and groups.
  • Knowledge Base Content: The number of records in your knowledge base, such as articles, categories, and folders.
  • Source and Target Platforms: The platforms you're migrating from and to.
  • Selected Pre-built Custom Options: Any additional options or customizations chosen for your migration process.
  • Chosen Support Plan: The level of support plan you select, which may vary based on the features and support offered.
  • Automated Migration Availability: Whether automated migration is supported for your specific source and target platforms.
  • Customization by Development Team: Any specific customization of your migration process performed by our development team.

It's essential to note that certain elements of the migration, such as notes, attachments, ticket custom fields, and replies, are transferred free of charge.

To calculate your data migration price accurately, the recommended approach is to set up a Free Demo Migration. This allows you to assess the migration process, explore available options, and receive a tailored pricing estimate based on your unique migration requirements.

What is customization? How is a custom work price calculated?

Customization refers to any modification made to the default automated migration process to meet specific requirements that cannot be achieved automatically. This may include tasks such as data filtering, restructuring data, adding extra tags to tickets, or transforming field types.

Our technical team is capable of implementing custom code to address these needs and ensure a tailored data migration.

Custom work is typically billed separately from the cost of automated data migration. The price of custom work is determined based on the complexity and scope of the customization required.

To inquire about customization or adjustments to your data migration, please contact our team at contact@help-desk-migration.com. Our sales representatives will provide you with further information and pricing details based on your specific requirements.

How much does data migration for an unsupported platform cost?

The cost of data migration for an unsupported platform varies depending on the complexity of developing and adding support for that specific platform. As such, there isn't a fixed price for migrations to or from platforms not currently supported by our service.

When you request an automated data migration to or from an unsupported platform, our sales representative will reach out to you. They will require access to your unsupported platform to assess the complexity of the migration and generate a customized data migration quote.

Once the assessment is complete, our team will provide you with a detailed quote based on the specific requirements of your migration project. This quote will reflect the efforts required to develop and implement support for the unsupported platform, ensuring a smooth and successful data migration process.

What are the paid options? How much do the pre-built custom options cost?

Paid options are the pre-built customizations available in the mapping stage. Those options include
