With great excitement and anticipation, we are pleased to announce the launch of our first SaaS product, Flatirons Fuse. Fuse is a brand-new CSV import tool, a data onboarding tool, and the last data importer you will ever need. Let’s take a deeper look at why we created Fuse, the problems it solves, and who can benefit from the solution.
Flatirons Fuse is a customizable data onboarding tool. It takes the leg work out of CSV imports and customer data onboarding. Fuse is an embeddable and customizable CSV importer. With a small code snippet, you can add Fuse to your website and easily allow your customers or internal teams to bring CSV data in any format and map and transform it to a format that works for your system. No more messy CSV imports, just clean data.
So, what does a good data onboarding experience look like?
These are all features of Flatirons Fuse. We hope to provide a better data onboarding and CSV import experience. Checkout out our promo mode to get a better sense for fuse:
Flatirons Fuse was created to simplify the process of importing data into a system. While CSV imports might sound trivial on a surface level, creating an experience that lets your team or customers seamlessly import large CSV files of any format into your system is actually a complex task, and not many do it well.
In my experience as a software engineer, I spent countless hours on CSV imports and data migrations. In fact, I once spent over a year on a single data migration or ETL process. That one was particularly complex for various reasons and didn’t use CSV files, but the premise and challenges were the same as you face when doing CSV imports.
One of the ways that organizations often try to create CSV import experiences is by allowing customers to download data import templates for their customers to fill out. Not only is this methodology a bit archaic, but it is a frustrating and time-consuming process. This is particularly true when a new user is onboarded into a system. Customers often come with previous data that they need to upload to a new tool that they start using. When you have thousands of rows in a CSV file, it is important to allow these customers an intuitive experience for mapping their existing data into your system. Failure to do so means frustration on behalf of a new customer, and time spent by your team helping customers debug and fix data import issues.
Engineers on the Flatirons team are intimately familiar with CSV imports. Because existing methodologies in the market for importing spreadsheets and CSV files into a system are error prone, it is not uncommon for a software engineer to be debugging a data import, or fixing CSV data. To us, this means that there is something wrong with the existing solutions on the market for importing CSV files.
We are happy to announce that Flatirons Fuse is the solution to the above problems, and we are looking forward to making data onboarding and CSV imports seamless across the web.
Data migrations are riddled with complexity. Historically, the data onboarding process has generally been severely underestimated. Difficulties in importing data from one system to another include but are not limited to:
With Flatirons Fuse, customers are empowered by putting the CSV import process into their own hands. They can simply match columns from any formatted CSV file or Excel spreadsheet into the structure that your system allows for. Additionally, you can provide your customers with both frontend and backend validations that allow users to know exactly what data they need to correct in order to have a successful import.
By providing a simple and intuitive interface for transforming data, we help each customer grow their business by reducing friction in the data onboarding process. We believe this to be the future of customer onboarding and data imports.
Flatirons Fuse is a product that provides benefits across an organization. As it turns out, the pains of inefficient and error prone data imports are felt across teams. The following are just a few of the teams that will derive benefit from Flatirons Fuse:
