Why Should You Outsource Data Entry?
Data entry is a time-consuming task that often feels like a slog. Whether you’re running a restaurant, an insurance agency, or a real estate company, you probably have more pressing things to attend to during your day. Of course, just because you don’t want to do data entry – or don’t have the time to do it – doesn’t mean that it’s a job that you can skip.
Maintaining accurate records is essential to running a successful business. For this reason, data entry is absolutely essential.
Some entrepreneurs believe that they are being economical by handling things like data entry by themselves. In reality, they are often being “penny wise and pound foolish.” You might save a small amount of money by doing data entry yourself – but over the long-term, it will cost you money in terms of missed opportunities and wasted time.
There are three primary benefits to hiring someone to handle your data entry. First, outsourcing this type of work is a good time management strategy. For most business owners, handling data entry on your own is not an effective use of your time and energy.
Second, data entry may be monotonous, but it requires skill. There are ways to optimize data entry for accuracy and efficiency. For high quality data entry, you want to work with someone who has specific experience doing this type of work.
Third, hiring someone to do data entry – particularly a virtual assistant – will save you quite a bit of money. Virtual assistants cost as little as $4.99 per hour. By contrast, if you do data entry yourself or have an employee perform this chore, it could cost you hundreds of dollars per hour for the same work.
The upshot? Hiring a virtual assistant to handle your data entry for you can be great for your business. You’ll get higher quality work for a fraction of the cost of what you would spend hiring a full-time employee. It’ll also free up your time to focus on growing your business and increasing profits.
What A Virtual Data Entry Assistant Can Do for You
A data entry virtual assistant can handle any of the data entry tasks that your company has, from logging medical files to inputting customer information to checking records for accuracy.
There are two primary types of data entry. Straight data entry involves transferring information into a database using software such as Excel or customer relationship management (CRM) systems.. Transcript data entry involves putting different types of data (such as audio and video files) into texts or numbers.
A skilled data entry virtual assistant (DEVA)’s main job is to enter data into a database specified by a client. However, they also perform several other vital functions, such as collecting, itemizing, and moving information from one format to another. A DEVA must also make sure that the data is clear and concise and can be accessed by anyone who needs it.
Our virtual assistants can:
- Prepare data for entry according to your specifications (e.g., alphabetically, by location, or time modified)
- Enter data
- Create spreadsheets and reports
- Keep records of activities and tasks
- Ensure that your data is in the proper format
- Delete unnecessary files or data
- Convert data from one format to another, such as audio or visual to paper
- Format business documents
- Perform data transcription by adapting information into codes (such as for medical billing)
- Process forms
- Check all data for accuracy
- Maintain databases
We work across all industries from finance to legal to technology to hospitality to ecommerce. Our virtual assistants have years of experience with different types of software, and are familiar with the latest data entry standards for quality management, security, and confidentiality.
In addition to data entry, our virtual assistants can handle a range of administrative tasks on your behalf. This can include tracking calendars, inputting appointments into calendars, and even responding to emails.
How Can I Hire a Data Entry Virtual Assistant?
Tasks Assistant employs a number of experienced, competent DEVAs. Based in Mumbai, India, our assistants work at a time that is convenient for you, taking advantage of technology like Zoom and Slack to meet clients’ needs.
The process starts with an analysis of your business’ specific needs. For example, if you run a medical practice, you will need a data entry virtual assistant who is familiar with medical billing procedures. Based on the criteria that you set, we will select a virtual assistant that can best help your business.
After you have been assigned a virtual data entry assistant, you can talk to them about the work that you need them to perform. Your assistant will use your preferred software to input data, maintain records, and perform data conversion.
In many cases, our clients use cloud-based services to upload data and records for their assistants to handle. Using cloud technology also provides the benefit of everything being immediately available and accessible to you.
If you need to talk to your assistant, you can schedule a time to chat or simply send them an email. This system improves efficiency and ensures that you are getting the services that you need to optimize your time and money.
Each of our virtual assistants has a set hourly rate starting at just $4.99. By comparison, the median pay for data entry clerks in the United States is $18.01 per hour, or $37,450 per year.
When you hire a virtual assistant through our company, you will never have to sign a contract or pay a start-up fee. In fact, you won’t have to pay anything at all unless you are satisfied with the work that your virtual assistant does.
All of our virtual assistants go through a rigorous interview process that includes a thorough background check and talking with references. We also conduct regular compliance checks to ensure that our assistants are trustworthy and are handling your data in a secure manner. This system gives our clients peace of mind in knowing that their virtual data entry assistants are performing as expected.
