What is Data Entry?
Data entry is the process of capturing and typing data from one or many physical documents into a computerized data storage system. It can be performed using a manual or automated method. This data may be alphanumeric, graphics, or machine-readable and it can be anything from names, numbers, codes, or other text. It is a conversion of data from a paper or audio source, which may be either optical or magnetic, into a form that is useful to a computer. This is done by keying in on a keyboard, selecting an item from a menu, or using a barcode reader to scan the data.
Data entry tasks can be carried out using a computer keyboard or by using an automated optical scanning device.
Data entry is often a repetitive task, and it can also be a very time-consuming task. Although, with the advent of computers, it has become a lot easier and a lot less time-consuming. It is a common misconception that it is a task given to low-skilled workers, but the truth is it is required in every business office.
