Data Entry

Definition

Data entry is the process of typing information into a digital format with the use of a computer or electronic device. The term usually encompasses many jobs either done in the office or remotely. Most likely, data entry refers to data processors, typists, transcribers, data clerks, or coders. Data entry done remotely is quite different from office based. Regardless of the manner of data entry, entering this job doesn’t require any special skills. Knowledge with a computer, the ability to read and write the requested language, which is often in English, is enough to perform most data entry tasks.

Data entry jobs are often repetitive and time-consuming. However, a company can still organize its data, error-free with the help of outsourced data transcribers. The Philippines and other countries with low-cost rates are the leading providers of these jobs. Often, these data entry providers have in-house workers or freelance transcribers.
