Why Outsourcing Data Entry Service is still like buying a loaf of Bread

data entry services like buying bread

Outsourcing Data Entry Service is a natural and logical choice.

In my last article I asked-When was the last time you baked your own loaf of bread? Or, stitched your own clothes? Or grow your own food? We really would never think of doing any of these because it is more efficient use of our time to buy the bread from the grocery, or buy the dress at the store. In effect we are quite happy outsourcing these tasks.

We are very willing to outsource a task if a) the outcome is well defined and b) we are confident that success will be delivered, if the correct process is followed.

In the baking of bread- the process entails the mixing of correct amounts of ingredients. These ingredients need to be mixed to achieve a certain level of consistency. The temperature warm-up and bake cycle has to be set right, and, the baking has to be done at the correct temperature. Hence multiple steps – if followed correctly, the end result is a nicely baked loaf of bread.

Outsourcing Data Entry Service also requires following distinct process steps. The task of keying data from hundreds and thousands of forms is broken down into the keying of data from individual data fields on the form. How is quality going to be checked at each field level, or, at each character level? What data validation rules will be in place to insure only valid data is delivered? And, what about delivering always within a set cycle time? Staffing levels need to adjust to meet fluctuations in data entry work load. In outsourcing data entry service, the outcome which are the data files that can be used for your business needs, is well defined. And, if the process steps are correctly followed for double key entry, for quality checks and for data validation- you can have a high confidence that success will be delivered from outsourcing data entry service.
