    Hey Guys,

    I’m looking at accepting a project that would require me to clean up an existing e-commerce website. Its been relatively successful and has over 100,000 individual products – loaded both by the client and its publishers.

    The site wasn’t originally designed for this many products and has become fairly disorganized.

    SO, the client has asked I look at a more robust search option – filterable and so forth. I completely agree it needs to be improved, but after looking at the database, I can tell that there are dozens and dozens of categories and not everything is labeled correctly etc.

    Is there any database management software that could help me clean up 100,000 entries quickly?

    Are there any companies out there that I can source just this particular part of the project to?

    Its a massive amount of data-entry. If I spent 2 minutes per product, it would take me 6 months full time to complete the database cleanup. I either need to get it down to a matter of seconds per product or find a company that specializes in this type of work.

    I don’t even know what to search for on Google.

    Thanks guys!
