Cloud-based systems require mining and aligning valuable data from legacy systems.


-Getting accurate data into systems with speed and accuracy is an underestimated skill. And yet the success of a business to harness its data is becoming increasingly important in key functions including marketing, sales, and finance.


Companies have a whole wide range of data, records, and information, that if manipulated and accessed unwisely can lead to inaccuracies and also discrepancies within the company’s process. If we go by the numbers, the data entry industry generates over $4 billion every year in the United States with over 35,000 people employed for the position.


Cloud-based systems require mining and aligning valuable data from legacy systems. The task of organizing and cleaning up old data sources takes the skills of speed and accuracy, combined with another underestimated skill – the one of patience. We say this as it takes time to bring systems into line. We would go so far as to say it’s almost like yoga – you have to layer your movements to become more supple – and in a way organizing old data needs that same measured approach.


Tackling stacks of old data can seem overwhelming but instead, we encourage you to take a different approach. To organize, update, and upload the data into its new home, a systematic method is required.


Data entry provides a sense of smooth processing and management. Hiring the right person for the job can prove to be a valuable asset for your organization. So’s here are some tips on how to hire a data entry clerk for your business, |

Job descriptions for operators can be niche and include roles such as Online Data Entry, Offline Data Entry, Specialized Data Entry, Transcription work, and Translation tasks.

  2. Typing speed: To complete the job quickly, most large companies seek candidates who can type at a speed of 50wpm-70wpm. A data entry clerk needs to get through a high volume of data!

  3. Skills: Written and verbal skills are a must that be a trait of a data entry clerk, because in the case of a transcriptionist, translator, handling inbound calls, chats, etc. these skills are front and center what the job is about

  4. Comprehensive: The data entry clerk, who usually works mechanically, must also possess a hawk-eye to identify errors or erroneous entries. Businesses face major concerns and issues regarding data entry accuracy.

  5. Time Management: A data entry clerk must always keep a check on time management and organizational skills and be willing to flip between priorities to get the job done!
