Data entry is the process of inputting alphabetic, numeric, or symbolic data into a computer. It is a very basic task but one of the most important in admin operations. It is critical for the data entry process to not introduce data quality issues (such as error or typos). Despite development of automation and character recognition techniques that can be used in the data entry process, human involvement is still required to guarantee that the data input process is done accurately.
There are many types of data entry projects: online, offline, semi-automated or manual. The project may be about forms, product specifications, invoices, Purchase Orders, surveys, etc. We thrive to use the most appropriate methodology for the project, along with quality testing. We typically allocate the most skilled employee for the assignment. We are comfortable with large volume orders as well as basic tasks. We also handle projects where deeper domain knowledge is required to understand the data and take corrective actions for the processing.
