Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. What’s the timeline for the data migration?
    • Subscriber data and equipment migrations happen from Mondays to Thursdays only. If you have all the information available, the import can take within 2-3 business days.
    • Once the initial import is complete, you want to ensure that everything has been imported correctly. It may take 2-5 import updates to get all your data added correctly.

    • You may send your file to success@visp.net.
    • DO NOT add or include plaintext credit card information on the spreadsheet.
  3. How do we re-add or import subscriber credit card information?
    • Subscriber must re-enter their credit/debit card or echeck information thru their Client Account portal, or they can to have you re-enter it for them.
    • Verify with your data migration expert if AutoPay or automatic billing has been set to run close to the date when you will be entering your credit/debit card information.
  4. Can I add certain fields not available in the spreadsheet?
    • Old Account Number
      • As long as we can map and export fields from your old system, we can import the data to VISP.
    • Old Username
      • If your username convention is an email, that can be used, however, take note that the system simply discards anything after the @sign, so basically if you enter a username sammy@gmail.com,
        the @gmail.com is discarded, and the username “sammy,” is the only thing the system will recognize.
    • Password
      • If your subscribers are used to their old password convention, we can move that over as well. However, we can also use a default password to start everything fresh.
    • Notes
      • Old notes or comments from your old billing system can be migrated over to VISP
    • Invoices
      • It is recommended that Balance Forwards or Balance due amounts are imported. Old invoice numbers and transactions may cause conflicts in logic or transactional scheduling.

      • Balance forwards and balance dues

      over 10MB)
