Top Data Entry related questions
What should I look for in a data entry specialist?
While there are no requirements for any formal education for someone who does data entry, try to find Taskers who have some experience in the job and a typing speed of at least 35 words per minute. Try to find someone courteous and trustworthy when keeping to any non-disclosure agreement you may need to protect your data. You can see if a Tasker has these qualities from their reviews and ratings from past clients.
How long does it take to do my data entry service?
An average set of databases to transcribe can take 3 to 12 weeks, depending on their size, volume and complexity. The speed at which your data entry services are rendered can also vary from Tasker to Tasker, depending on their typing speed. You can try to find a Tasker who has a typing speed of at least 35 words per minute, but note that Taskers who type faster can charge more.
Do I need to provide any tools or equipment to my data entry Tasker?
No. Your hired data entry Tasker will typically have their own equipment like a desktop or laptop computer along with a fast internet connection. They’ll also have a headset and webcam to do video calls if you need to meet them. You should provide the data for them to work on and any software you want to use to compile the database. Also, make sure your computer is in perfect shape to have video calls with your Tasker.
Can I have my meetings transcribed?
Yes, you can! Recorded conversations in business meetings are among the many types of data you can hire data entry Taskers to document. Data entry clerks and data entry administrators can accurately transcribe this and other recorded voices, such as physicians who record their medical reports on patients. You can find the right kind of data entry Taskers for as long as you specify what you need in your job posting.
Can I use software to transcribe my recordings?
Yes, but most transcription software on the market can be costly and not be as sensitive as the human ear. Most transcription software isn’t advanced enough to detect different or unusual accents, so the transcription may not always be accurate. You can develop an app to help you transcribe your data or go the more convenient route - hire a data entry specialist.
What if a Tasker won’t agree to an NDA?
It’s unusual for Taskers not to agree to this kind of contractual stipulation. If a Tasker doesn’t agree to an NDA, you can find other Taskers amenable to this instead. Be sure to mention the sensitive nature of your data and that you can only hire Taskers who will agree to a non-disclosure agreement. You can also check reviews and ratings of each Tasker so you can see if they can be discreet and professional.
What do data entry services include?
Data entry services include all the activities necessary to compile, verify and edit electronic data, then enter it into a database or documentation platform. You can book remote data entry and freelance data entry Taskers who can handle all sorts of data entry jobs. Do you need recorded meetings transcribed?
Maybe you have to record sales or inventory figures. Does your customer database need updating? Whatever sort of databases you need to be compiled, organised and updated, you can book the right Taskers to do them!
Organising and extracting data
Your data entry Tasker can begin by organising the data by format. They can sort the data on PDF, JPEG, WAV, MPEG, word files, excel spreadsheets or other standard formats. They can listen to audio files, transcribe conversations or check text, and then compile and transfer the relevant data by typing them into a spreadsheet or word file upon request.
Reviewing data for gaps and deficiencies
Some data entry Taskers can check the data sources for deficiencies. Upon request, they may point out which entries are lacking or deficient, then send them back for your team to review and fill in the missing data.
Creating a spreadsheet
Your Tasker can create a central spreadsheet that contains all the data you need. They can make sure the spreadsheet’s cells are appropriately labelled, and the information is sorted by date, alphabetically or in a sorting style you specify. Your Tasker can transfer the data, typing it as fast as they can without compromising accuracy and minimising errors. You can also have them use a specially-prepared excel data entry form if you want.
Using database software
Send your Tasker a copy if you have a database software you wish to have the data entered into. They can install the software into their computer to compile the data and update your database. Be sure to have your data entry Tasker consent to a non-disclosure agreement or clause in your contract to protect your data and software. Your Tasker can uninstall the software you provided after they’ve finished with your contracted work.
Editing and proofreading
Once the data is sorted and entered into a central database, your Tasker can proofread the data for errors. They can check that the data is sorted correctly and compiled, check for errors and correct them appropriately.
Sending the data
After the database is checked and ready, your Tasker can send the data. They can save the data in a file format you specify, then send it on or before your agreed deadline. You can request your Tasker to erase any data from their computer after completing the work.
