However these services can be availed by client in the license sale & product sale models. In the ASP (Application Service Provisioning) model of engagement, all services detailed below shall be provided offsite / offshore in any manner that QFundTM may deem suitable for the project, unless specifically requested by our clients to be performed onsite, which would be considered “On-Demand” and will be fully billable to the extent of activities performed based on time & effort and the rates detailed in the this proposal.

INTERFACE AND INTEGRATION SERVICES
The chief advantage of using the QFundTM is that it would help you in interfacing/integrating the application with various other internal systems coupled with the potential offered by the Internet. QFundTM is integration ready & can enable collaboration between all disparate systems already hosted with you or any other service being availed by you from any other party including but not limited to the following
- Risk Assessment Interfaces
- Accounting Applications
- HR / Payroll Applications
- Any other legacy / ERP / proprietary application
QFundTM has successfully implemented projects of high complexity on a global scale, to enable the clients to perform transactions online leveraging on the existing data and utilizing the potential offered by the Internet.
QFundTM is built on a scalable architecture and can be integrated/interfaced with any other system built on any technology platform including Legacy & ERP applications. QFundTM has been integrated with Teletrack, a risk assessment engine, to address client’s requirements for verification/validation of borrower credibility. The application has interfaces to send requests & receive responses to & from Teletrack respectively.
Almost all businesses migrate information from one format to another. A migration may be a one time event as in the conversion of legacy data to a new enterprise wide ERP solution. A migration may be repetitive in the case of exporting data to a data warehouse or reporting subsystem.
QFundTM takes a realistic approach to data migrations matching experience with correct toolsets. We provide the tools and can provide the required hardware needed for the conversion effort. The end result is a successful migration at a reasonable cost.
Key elements of a one-time migration:
- Source Host Identification: what operating system, where located, how is the host physically connected to the target host
- Source Identification: what application, what database, data formats, field formats, business rules, export options, security issues
- Target Host Identification: what operating system, where located
- Target Identification: what application, what database, data formats, field formats, business rules, import options, security issues
- Mapping Discovery: mapping field to field, mapping through conversion tables, summaries, exception processing
- Determine where programmatic mapping is the best solution. Determine where data entry is the correct approach.
- etermine data transport: FTP, tape, etc.
- Detailed mapping process
- Determine required documentation and training
- Define testing and balancing procedure
- Simulated go-live test Final go-live
