Don’t misuse your employees! Data collection is an area that is most likely not suited to the ability or salary costs of your expertise.
Many companies therefore prefer to employ business process Outsourcing (BPO) external employees as an alternative. Data collection is a traditional field of work in which many specialised providers offer their services.
Specialised external employees: data entry by professionals
BPO specialised providers employ specially trained data entry clerks to professionally handle data. Data collection is often more than just entering a simple series of numbers in Excel spreadsheets.
Paper-based documents that are filled in by hand will require much more manual effort from a data entry clerk. Data collection often requires that this type of material is entered by hand. The documents are first usually scanned or photographed, and then evaluated on the computer. The text is then recognised with OCR software and later corrected following the four-eyes principle: text that is not recognised must be typed in by hand.
Handling digital material which can be read with software tools is a bit easier for a data entry clerk. The data is then usually presented as raw data in a table, and then needs to be put into the correct format.
This type of data extraction will require a data entry clerk who is somewhat better trained. Data entry will require manual processing of the data material, conversion of the data into specific formats and cleansing the database through an automatic filter, which will need to be set up or programmed.
