Big Brothers Big Sisters AIM Data Conversion

Since 2005 we have become expert in the conversion of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) local agency data to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America AIM System. If your agency is in need of these services, the following information will give you an idea of how our process works.

The huge advantage of using Prism Partners to assist with your data conversion, is that you can continue to use your existing data systems right up until the very last hour when your agency "goes live" on AIM. There is absolutely no need to keep separate records of your agency's day-to-day business while someone does a tedious manual conversion.

Our part of the conversion project will take between 30 and 45 days, depending on any unusual complexity in the process as well as your staff's availability.

This is an overview of how the process will work:

In order to accurately set your expectations, it is important to note that the conversion process does not move all of your existing data into AIM. The national staff members assisting with your conversion will explain this in more detail. Primarily, we are capturing demographic and status information along with important dates. We will capture things like inquiry date, RTBM date, match date, address, phone, and custodial adult info. An example of something we don't capture is program information. Even after we convert the data, your staff will need to go into every record converted to validate data and add supplemental information. Again, the national staff will assist you with all of these "back-fill" operations.

If your BBBS local agency is scheduled to convert to the National AIM System, we hope that will contact us to do that conversion for you. We can save you months of misery. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
