What to consider when choosing a data file importer?
What features do I need?
Reflect on your business objectives and daily operations to determine what specific features you require in a data file importer. For instance, are you looking for seamless integration with third party systems, no-code setup, or automation capabilities via an API? Choose a product that aligns with your needs today, and has the features to accommodate your growth in the future.
Is the pricing transparent?
Transparent pricing is essential to building trust and can help you budget more effectively. Look for clear, upfront pricing details about what is included. Be on the lookout for hidden fees, such as upcharges for white labeling or monthly billing. Ask for multi-year pricing guarantees.

Is the product white label?
The ability to remove the provider's logo and customize the importer with your organization's brand identity is crucial for many businesses. Ask upfront to ensure the software can deliver the level of customization you desire. Beware that some providers will only provide white labeling at an additional cost.
Does the provider have access to my users' data files?
Safety and privacy is a top priority when handling data from end users. Robust security measures and SOC 2 certification are table stakes for organizations entrusted with your data. If it is important that the provider never have access to your data files in the first place, look for self-hosted options or a privacy architecture (such as a self-contained importer embedded in a web browser) that gives you the option not to process or store files on the provider's servers.
