Rons Data Stream - Powerful Data Processing

Professional Data Stream to automatically clean, organise and convert multiple data files. A tremendous time saver.

Rons Data Stream is a powerful tool for automatically cleaning, converting and processing one or many data sources.

Three Simple Steps

  • Create a Cleaner
  • Create a Job
  • Combine them and run

Or for smaller jobs simply use "Quick Job" for single files or folders.


With the batch processing capability, 100's of data files can be processed in seconds. Multiple files, folders and directories process at the same time.


The Preview shows the original file with the processed one and displays the cleaning rules that perform the changes.

The Data Stream is designed to update and clean a data source (for example CSV files) through the use of Cleaners, replacing hours of manual editing.

Cleaners are made up of a list of operations that can be build, saved and applied to a data source as required.

The Preview Window makes the comparison of the original data with the processed data very clear.

With the batch processing capability, 100's of data files can be processed in seconds, making cleaning a whole directory an easy task!

Create operating rules (the Cleaner), define the source, format and output (the Job), combine and RUN . . . Job done.
