Having been a long time user of Monarch, I was skeptical that there could be better software available for performing complex data analysis. After using TextConverter for a while, I continue to be amazed at its data extraction and report building capabilities. It’s ease of use in building templates that can extract data correctly from reports with non-standard layouts has to be seen to be believed.
In addition, the level of support SiMX provides their customers after purchasing TextConverter to help them learn the product while using the customer’s actual data is impressive in today’s world of all too common poor customer service experiences. Great job SiMX. Monarch has met its match!

Thanks for the support. With your help the tool is functioning and thanks to the scripting capabilities, we have been able to apply its capabilities too several aspects of the Analysis process.

After using several versions of Datawatch Monarch for over 10 years I can say that TextConverter is the most powerful application I have ever seen for extracting data from PC documents. Any data that is possible to extract can be captured by TextConverter because of its powerful logic and ultimate flexibility for this purpose. The new user interface makes it possible for anyone to take advantage of the power of this application. SiMX personnel are always very friendly and eager to help me whenever I call upon them to resolve issues in using their applications, and their resolutions have always exceeded my expectations.

At CACI we support government and military customers in their day-to-day business processes.We had a customer that received data via an excel form and needed that data to be read into a database and then manipulated. We needed a tool that was affordable, high quality and easy to set up.We found SIMX and have been very happy with the results. SIMX services assisted us in setting up the tool and ensuring the programs we wrote worked and solved our business needs. They are very responsive and always provide us solutions quickly ensuring very little downtime for our customers which is extremely important to us.The benefits using this tool have provided our clients are very great. Our customers used to have to manually enter data from this excel form weekly which could have up to 1000 rows. Manual data entry not only takes a great amount of time, but it also is very prone to user errors. Now the client just has to forward the spreadsheet they receive via email and the data is parsed via SIMX and loaded into their database so they can use it instantly. Since the initial set up, we have found numerous other ways to utilize this tool to improve business processes for our clients and look forward to our continued use and continued satisfaction.

I have used Monarch for many years -and had to upgrade but was looking for a more advanced and simpler solution for extracting "Gold" from various reports and PDFs.
A Web search took me to TextConverter 4 SiMX. I was immediately sold. I first acquired the trial version and after a few hours I hit the ground running. I knew that this was far and beyond what I expected and so I purchased the license that very same day. The support I received was one on one and was, what I would classify from my 30 years of IT experience, VIP. Those who know how to use this increase the value to themselves and there company.
This is an essential tool for any IT Department. Highly recommended, reasonably priced, well supported = win winwin.

Thank you very much for your quick response. I have to tell you, TextConverter is an amazing piece of software. I'm still evaluating the software, but this has blown me away within the first few minutes.
Overall, I am a senior consultant with PwC (a consulting/audit firm) and the amount of data we get in PDFs is ridiculous and this piece of software is impactful. I have tried Datawatch and believe me, it's nothing compared to this.

I have been using this new upgraded version of Text Converter for the past month and a half now and really enjoy the changes that have been made to this software package to make it user friendly to common PC users and not just programmers. I struggled with the logic involved in writing script, so when I was given this new release and shown the ease of striping reports by just highlighting the fields that I am interested in without having to call you for assistance with each new project sent my way. I have been able to extract detailed hospital master log reports with an efficiency that could not have been accomplished with Monarch. This new software is going to help reduce countless hours of Tech time having to review these reports looking for specific cases and results.

Over the past decade I’ve owned and operated telecom and cable TV service providers, systems integration firms and built multiple professional service teams. I have hired dozens of professional services organizations and done business with some of the world’s largest engineering entities. Of the relationships created, I view the one that we’ve established with SiMX as one of the most valuable and genuine.
I offer my most sincere recommendation of SiMX based not only on the impressive technical feats that I have witnessed, but rooted by the honesty, sincerity and exceptional business acumen exhibited by the SiMX development and support teams.

My first experience with SiMX was early in 2012 when pressed against a deadline and feverishly hunting for a solution. We hired and fired two other firms who were unable to deliver and was about to abandon a complex data mining project that would forever change the landscape of an industry. We had tens of thousands of pages of information, each contained data of various sorts and formats but what we needed was uniformity and a relational database. After months of hamming and spending thousands of dollars in professional services and consulting contracts with other firms, no one else was able to deliver. Unwilling to give up, we searched for a firm who could overcome the issues, address the known obstacles and deliver a solution. We contacted a dozen organizations that day, then, we found SiMX.

I had a return call from a SiMX Solutions Expert in minutes; the next day a lead developer vetted their ability to accomplish the project as I watched in real-time. SiMX’s customer service is top drawer. Our first project with SiMX was completed on time, on budget and with impeccable accuracy. We needed a few more passes on the data structure to fit our system and they obliged with dispatch. Where every other partner was over-budget and incapable SiMX simply and expertly delivered. We were notably impressed with SiMX’s professionalism, responsiveness and detail so we presented a data acquisition and reporting project of mammoth proportions.

The team approached the opportunity with clarity and a level of engagement you don’t typically find with contractors. They embraced the strategic, philosophical and technical aspects with a high degree of sophistication and skill. It’s been a year since we commenced on the project; it’s evolved tremendously in form and function due to the excellent working relationships and friendships established over time.
We fully trust SiMX to deliver on time, as promised and without excuses. Their practical and direct approach streamlines our costs and our solutions. Their results continue to exceed our expectations.
We have concurrently scoped and delivered other projects as well; one in particular speaks volumes to the character of the team at SiMX: It was the Friday before Christmas; with only days until the New Year a client approached me with an emergency. They needed years of medical records, charts and customer data extracted and imported into a new system but they could only produce PDF reports from the old system. Their data was locked in a system about to be decommissioned and all the while their operation must remain in service 24/7.

We did not have the time to fully scope and estimate this project; the business deal between SiMX and our company was negotiated on trust. SiMX director Andrei Afanassenkov simply stated: “you pay not for effort, only for results”. He then approached the challenge calmly and professionally; within days all data was extracted, reassembled into multiple iterations of new databases and a User Interface was created to fully support the transition for staff. With the combination of our company and SiMX the entire projected was “turn-key” and the client was delighted. Once again SiMX made us look very good.
We work with SiMX on a regular basis, often communicating daily on a number of items and projects. Their level of service and responsiveness has been consistently excellent. I strongly encourage you to consider the SiMX team for your complex data acquisition, reporting, software and/or application development needs.

The combination of a strong collection business and a weak economy meant that we were receiving hundreds of bankruptcy notices, dismissal, and discharges from judicial regions in all 50 states every day. Five full time employees were involved in keying in the bankruptcy information. Looking for a better solution we called six different vendors that offered these types of automation solutions. After seeing the bankruptcy forms, all six turned us down. SiMX was the only vendor that offered a credible solution. The SiMX automated process reliably extracts clean structured data from exceptionally diverse and inconsistent layouts and formats. I am very impressed with the services and the technical ability of SiMX team.

Our partnership with SiMX has become integral to our success in improving efficiencies and resource management as a company. The training they provided enabled us to rely heavily on the software which we found to be user friendly and, when we needed support, they have proved to be very knowledgeable and responsive. Relative to other data management systems, SimX compares very favorably and we remain very pleased with our partnership with SimX and the great people there who have been supporting our efforts all along the way.

Thank you so much for your software, samples, and help! I have used the Monarch program in the past and was considering upgrading to the latest version. When I saw your program and demoed it I thought that it was too good to be true. You have simplified the process and made it so intuitive that even a novice could use it. When I received the video of how you connected the fields it validated the power of your program. I am sold and intend to share my enthusiasm with anyone who wants to succeed in parsing large reports, or data to something very manageable.

The product I was using for imports was mangling our data during the import process; therefore I was tasked to create a custom import product in record time. I was ecstatic when I found SimX’s TextConverter since I knew there was no way I was going to be able to program our own import system in under a week without some type of help. I sent SimX the outline of the required multi-table import process and in a few hours I received proof that the product would perform as desired. Then with a little support in enhancing the import process, I was once again importing data. Thanks for the help SimX.

Our typical users come from management and clerical ranks. Still with 1-3 hour training all can navigate and produce reliable and professional looking reports. One office "expert" can service large organization with templates for more complex reports. No more searching though Excel spreadsheets looking for bad formulas! No worrying about correctness of totals and subtotals. Lots of handy features and no crashes. Bravo!

This is the best and most intuitive reporting tool I have ever worked with. It works the way people think. Just drag your fields to the document and voila! The charting is equally simple and intuitive. I was able to create complex statistical reports within ten minutes of using the product. The same thing in Crystal is an effort compared to this tool. This company really has got it right. You actually are using a word processor to create reports, so you can create a report while gathering data for the project. I strongly urge others to give this tool a ride...

"After viewing and testing many different text conversion software packages, we found SiMX Text Converter. Not only was it simple to use, but the support we received from the first interaction was amazing. We had an extremely complex text file that none of the other software packages could handle and the SiMX support team helped create a process that produced EXACTLY what we needed in a couple of hours! They built us an extract that is parsing records from a very detailed text file with multiple variable fields and an average of 10,000 records each. We really appreciate all of the help we got and are looking forward to using SiMX Text Converter for a very long time as part of our business."

"TextConverter more than paid for itself on the very first project we used it on. In fact, it made the project possible when it otherwise probably wouldn't have materialized. Although I have been designing database applications for almost 20 years, I'm just learning MySQL and PHP. My first project is a fairly complex one which includes importing into MySQL several flat files with almost 4 million records each. TextConverter's comprehensive user interface greatly simplifies that task. Saved conversion templates make subsequent imports a snap - all we have to do is select the new source file and pick a new name for the destination MySQL database - nothing could be easier. That's not to say that we didn't have an issue or two along the way, but when we did, the support from Simx was very responsive and effective. A great product and tremendous support, too! What more could you ask for?"

“I actually don't understand how any software which seeks to process a text file can divide up a constant record into pre-determined fields in the absence of a field delimiter. That is why I was so impressed with your software which achieved what I thought was impossible. I would be surprised if any software could carry out this task unless it could provide for all possible variations of incoming data without field delimiters. It seems to me that some processing of the input record must always be required (in the absence of a pre-existing field delimiter) by the means of some programming language.”

I work for Xerox and was evaluating TextConverter on behalf of one of our customers, the London Borough of Barnet. The support I received from SiMX was excellent, including one issue which required a new option to be added into the software. Testing for the LB of Barnet has been completed successfully, they have purchased TextConverter and are now running live data through it. Thanks for your support.

"The WYSIWYG for Reporting Target Reports has allowed us to create professional reports in a fraction of time compared to standard reporting methods. If you have ever had tried to create a report with multiple graphs and tables in Microsoft Word you will appreciate this product. We were able to setup a 20 page report in a few hours. The WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) approach is excellent for beginners, and the advanced scripting supports allows experienced users to automate reporting tasks."

We are a small manufacturing company located in Canada. I am receiving 50 faxed PO's per day from one customer. Using the TextConverter program we were able to automate the procedure and drop the faxed PO's directly into our order entry, saving us about 4 hours per day by not having rekey the orders. Simx had up us and running in no time, the technical support is excellent!

We have been using Target text convertor for some time now. Originally it was purchased to be used as a stand-alone tool for occasional data conversions. Later we discovered that Target convertor works beautifully in fully automated procedures. It has been extensively used as an integration tool for situations where we get data feeds from different systems including legacy systems. Fast, powerful and very stable.

I used Text Converter on about 250 csv files to import in to sql server. Before I was using the import tool in sql server and it was taking forever, plus, the import tool that comes with it does not do a good job of recognizing the field types in any case, I was on week 2 (20+ hours in) of the import the old way when I found Text Converter. I was able to import all the files with the correct field values in about 6 hours of work. Plus, I I now have a way to import new data files in the future. This tool is truly awesome! Great work. I'm glad I found it.

I'm thankful to have found your product and was very surprised ( in a great way ) to experience your extremely prompt service, which has already been a lifesaver.

"We made the choice to try Target Reports instead of Crystal Reports about six months ago. Part of the reason was cost; however, from past experience, I knew that Crystal Reports can require a steep learning curve for new users. It is very easy to create a new report with Target Reports; many of the functions are drag and drop. One of the features that is especially useful is the ability to pull data from multiple data sources in one report. The support has been nothing short of stellar. Support requests are responded to quickly and the support staff follows through until the issue is resolved. We are very happy with our decision to choose Target Reports."
