Data Entry

Data Entry

Our data entry service provides an efficient solution for archivists, especially where records might be handwritten and tricky to decipher, rendering OCR (Optical Character Recognition) a less appropriate option. This enables collection holders to acquire a manually entered record of their data, ideal for items where searches will need to be performed, such as old burial registers, envelopes, index cards and 35mm slides.

Data entry can be undertaken as a protective measure to ensure business recovery and continuity in the face of disaster, such as fire, flood, loss or theft. It enables faster access to information, reducing staff ‘search’ time and related costs. Data entry also ensures that you can meet requests for information under The Freedom of Information Act, making it much easier to comply within the specified 21 days. It also creates opportunities for revenue generation by allowing paid searches of your records.

Our data entry service uses experienced and meticulous archive specialists to manually type details into MS Excel or CSV format in order to create a readable and searchable record. Manual data entry is a time consuming task for organisations to do themselves and our data entry experts are professional interpreters of the written word in old script or faded as a result of time.
