0% coding, 100% automation
The inbuilt automation of Flexter means that data projects that usually take weeks or months (or never get finished) can be completed in a day or two.
No coding or other specialist skills are required—it’s a totally automated way to un-silo industry-standard XML/JSON data and convert it into a readable database.
This ensures that the flow of information to data analysts and decision-makers higher up the chain is faster and more efficient.
Flexter frees your time and budget up to focus on providing real value to the business.

Flexter is unique in data management and data warehousing software in that it completely automates the process of data conversion.
It works with any volume of data using a simple three-step process:
In a rapid, one-time operation, we scan and traverse XML documents for information and intelligence.
We create a logical target schema and the mappings between XML elements and the database tables and columns.
We process and convert the XML documents each time new data arrives.
This produces guaranteed, high-quality results that remove the uncertainty and inaccuracy from laborious manual processes that may never provide the results you’re looking for.
You did in one day what we could not achieve in three years!
Who’s it for?
Whatever sector you operate in, industry data standards “warehouse” the data in formats that need unpacking before you can interpret and analyse it meaningfully.
Flexter has proven particularly beneficial to the following industries:
- Retail (ecommerce)
1. An urgent conversion project that requires expertise not available in-house?
Use Flexter to instantly convert XML to a database, data warehouse, or data lake, without any coding or esoteric niche skills required.
2. A huge volume of data to convert
Flexter was specifically designed to be fast and scalable to any size project. The full version can be scaled up to handle petabytes of data and billions of XML documents.
3. You’re unsure whether your project can be completed
Flexter eliminates this risk. Just run a pilot or PoC and you will get confirmation that it works from the beginning of the project.
4. Decision-makers are impatient for the data they need
With Flexter, you know how long the conversion process will take and can set expectations for decision-makers – with no delays.
5. Changes to the industry data standard or XML add complexity to the conversion process
When Flexter encounters new versions of standards or XML documents, it continues to work as it upgrades semi-automatically.
Who are we?
We developed Flexter because of our own frustrations with XML and JSON in data warehouse projects running over time, over budget or failing completely.
We knew there had to be a better way.
Once we saw how much time and money Flexter saved, we realised how valuable this tool could be to other organisations.
