Are you planning to outsource your data-entry project to an offshore company? Most businesses in US, UK and Europe choose an offshore company for their data-entry work, owing to the huge cost advantage it offers. But, if you get low-quality work for low costs, you are not really benefiting – you are simply paying less money to get work that is worth just that.

If you choose the right company for your needs, you can get high quality and reliable data entry services at reasonable rates. All you need to do is find the right company. But, when thousands of companies around the world are offering data entry services, how do you make the right choice? We hope that this quick guide will help you make the right decision.

Look for Customization and Staffing Flexibility
The first thing you should look for is the ability of the organization to create new processes and build a specific strategy for the kind of data entry work that you want them to do. So, choose a company that offers custom services. Also, it is quite possible that your need for data entry will fluctuate over a period of time. Make sure that company lets you increase or reduce the number of people working on your project within a short time frame.

Check for Fast Turnaround
Data and information are what drive an organization. Data entry helps you digitize and cleanse the data and makes it easily accessible. The value of the data lies in how helpful it is for your business, in how useful it is in making business decisions. For this, you may need certain data entry tasks to be completed urgently. Check whether the company you are planning to hire has the capability to complete the tasks accurately and speedily.

Measure Cost Benefits
For most business, the major reason for outsourcing data entry is cost benefits. This is where you need to be careful. There are dozens of companies offering data-entry services at really low rates. Also, there are freelancers who work for even less. But, when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. So, it is best to choose a company that has been in the field for long enough, it is best to choose a company that has proven expertise in the field. So, look for a company that offers the services at significantly lesser cost than in-house data-entry, but do not compromise quality for dirt-cheap rates. It is best to hire companies that have certifications like ISO 2009 or CMMi 3 to ensure that you get the best services possible.

Evaluate Infrastructure
One of the biggest benefits of outsourcing is that you do not have to make any investment in infrastructure. The idea is that the offshore company excels at providing a particular service and sets up the right infrastructure for it. But, if the company you choose doesn't have the right software and infrastructure, you cannot get the perfect service. For this, you need to make sure that your outsourcing partner has the right setup for data entry work.

Assess Data security Measures
While we are talking about it last, this is the most important point. When your data is accessed by someone thousands of miles away from your location, there is a good reasons to feel a little threatened. If the data that you are working with is sensitive or valuable, it is best to pick a company with established security measures. Searching data entry companies with ISO 9001 and other security-related certifications is a good idea.

We hope that these points help you find the right data entry firm for outsourcing, and we hope that you have a fruitful and profitable offshoring experience!
