Companies usually use many types of software to enter data into a database, like MS Access, MS Word and Excel. These are good enough when the quantity of data to be entered is limited. But when the data entry volume is huge it becomes essential and very effective to use professional data entry software. One of the most used application area is during the processing of various types of online forms that are continuously being filled with answers / data that may a part of research/survey or from any other questionnaires. Data entered can include only text, only images or a mix of both text as well as images. Other types of data entry include numeric data entry, address data entry, and key data entry.
Professional data entry software can speed up the data entry substantially. While on an average a data entry operator using the regular software like MS Access for example makes about 2000 key strokes every hour, the professional data entry operator using the data entry software can achieve many times more speed and reach over 11,500 key strokes per hour.
