The publication industry produces a wide range of publications like magazines, books, newspapers, directories and so on. Accurate data entry is indispensable for the publishing industry. Requirements include image data entry and digital archiving, and data conversion services. Sometimes clients may have unique requirements such as SGML entry of scientific text comprising math and tables. For detailed and correct entry of data, the ideal option is to outsource to a reputable data entry company that can provide optimal results in minimal time.
The publication industry has various working departments including the following:
- Writing and editing: Writers, authors, reporters and correspondents write articles and other content that needs to be edited thoroughly. With document conversion all the paper materials can be digitized, which makes editing easier.
- Sales, promotion and marketing: This department maintains information such as past and present sales reports, market research data, marketing and distribution data and so on. For any publishing house this data is important to identify its targeted market, to ensure publications are delivered on time and to keep up consumer demand. Data entry outsourcing to a reliable vendor ensures that this valuable information can be stored, accessed and retrieved quickly.
- General administration: This department handles accounting, recruitment and other administrative functions. Valuable data maintained include company policies, subsidiary rights, permissions for copyrights, license for reproducing copyrighted materials, transportation of publications and so on. All this information can be transformed into digital copies for easy storage. This helps reduce storage space, increases accessibility and also saves time.
