Systems you use aren't compatible with each other

Sometimes you need to move data from one system to another, and the only way to do so is through a CSV or Excel file. You have to do this becuase the systems aren't compatible with each other, don't have a built-in way to connect or an API, and sometimes even if they do, it requires techincal expertise to do it.

Data from CSV and Excel files are usually messy. They can't easily be imported to databases without first preparing and cleaning the data. Dropbase gives you easy ways to deal with these challenges so you can import your data successfuly.

Requesting data customers takes too much back and forth
