12 Best Outsourced Data Entry Services for Machine Learning

Article by Alex Nguyen | April 29, 2019

Accurate data is the key to accelerate business growth. However, as a growing organization, you might find it tiresome to keep a track of your data over time. One of the most important tools in managing business information is data entry.

However, managing an in-house team of data entry operators can prove to be very stressful, leaving little time to focus on core business activities. For straightforward yet labor intensive work like data entry, more and more companies are turning to outsource data entry services to offshoring companies. Outsourcing data entry services allow businesses to scale data enrichment effectively.


How to select the right data entry company

The best data entry services give you the most time and cost-saving services combined with an experienced team of well-trained data entry specialists you can trust. Consider the following when selecting a data entry service provider:

  1. Experience: A good amount of experience is important for an outsourcing company to deliver the best quality services. An experienced data entry service provider would use the right procedures, methodologies and documentation to perform the work.
  2. Technology: The last thing you want is a data entry “company” that is just a bunch of people in a room with outdated computers. To get the best results in terms of efficiency and scalability, check whether your provider has the software and workflow process to deliver 100% accurate, efficient output consistently.
  3. Data security: When you outsource data entry work online, a major concern is whether or not your data is secure. Always check if your provider has a sufficient security management system for data governance and whether secure connection is used for data transfers.
