Data entry is something that every company needs to carry out in order to maintain all records in a systematic manner, in their online or offline database. All the commercial activities carried out within and by the firm, require the maintenance of records by way of testimonials. Every transaction made, each deal completed and all orders taken, are meticulously entered into the company records. They’re either in the form of written or printed paper, or in the form of computer records. As is easily understood, every firm would have a huge amount of data to be stored, recorded and processed every single day. The time consumed would be huge, and a considerable chunk of a company’s workforce would have to be on the job. As a result, much of the concentration would be diverted from the more demanding areas of the company’s operations. Naturally, this is a spot of bother. But there’s really no need to worry, as the option of outsourcing is always there. India emerged as a premier outsourcing destination back in the early 2000’s, especially in the field of Information Technology. Very soon, the trend was spanning across a wide spectrum of industries—from IT software development to transcription services. In such a scenario, data entry couldn’t be far behind in the race. Many companies are now considering outsourcing their data entry services abroad to India, and they have good reasons for it. Let’s have a good look at two of the most pertinent reasons which compel companies to outsource their offline or online data entry services:
- The Costs: The very first consideration which drives a company is of course the costs involved. Outsourcing to India would see the services completed at about half the cost of what it would have taken in the home country. Aside from having to pay in the indigenous currency, hiring new labour in the industry would mean incurring massive extra costs in lieu of salary package, casual leaves, holiday’s bonuses and all the other perks, which come along with a full-time office job. All that can be avoided by offshore outsourcing. You end up getting immensely more by paying much less—a win at both ends.
- Outsourcing to a reliable company would mean earning a trustworthy partner, who would understand the exact business needs and requirements of the client, and would accordingly tailor their services to suit the client’s needs. Once a firm finds that perfect match for its needs, its growth would accelerate like never before.
