Transition to IrisBG

We offer a smooth and straight forward transition to IrisBG.
Before transition we provide an overview of the time and resources needed.


Smooth transfer of your data

Our Data Migration service will be undertaken by an experienced botanist with in-depth knowledge of the database and the system. Cleaning of your current data is included in the service. When we migrate your data to IrisBG, you can still use your current system, but you cannot add or change any records during this process.

  • Our aim is to make the migration as short as possible by careful planning and in-advance review of your data.
  • Extensive experience in migrating both commercial and user defined databases.
  • Depending on your collection size, data complexity and quality the migration usually takes 5-10 working days.
  • Data cleaning is very important for us and we strive to do as much as possible within the agreed migration period.
  • Taxonomy will be updated to the APG IV classification (genera and above).

The price of the Data Migration service depends on your current data. Get in touch with us if you are interested in a quote for this service or would like to learn more.
