Data Entry Outsourcing & Forms Processing Outsourcing
Axion specializes in outsourcing of data entry services and forms processing. Axion's work incorporates document scanning and a combination of key-from-image and advanced data capture and recognition technologies to achieve greater forms processing accuracy and efficiency. Other services provided to support our client’s forms processing and data entry requirements include the following:
On Your System or Ours: Increasingly, clients are having us key directly into their key-from-image system using a secure Internet connection. There are three advantages of this approach: 1) the client does not give up control over the physical documents, scanned images, or the keyed data; and 2) the client avoids the cost and delay of having to ship hard copy to us; and 3) there is no need for for us to develop a custom template in our system, accelerating project start and reducing cost. When using our own system, data entry is performed using a key-from-image process we customize to your project, as well as various recognition technologies, such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Mark Sense (e.g. check boxes), and Barcode Recognition, Axion utilizes a global work force consisting of workers in both the US and, all of who connect to Axion’s private network in the U.S. to perform their work. The determination of whether to assign U.S. or offshore workers to a project depends on a variety of factors, including the nature and complexity of the project, cost-sensitivity, volume, turnaround requirements, and client preference.
A growing area is Internet research in which Axion's operators gather information from specific client-selected sites and provide the resulting data to the client in whatever format they require.
Address Correction & Verification
When processing addresses, we utilize a sophisticated address correction & verification process to assure clients that address information is current, accurate, and deliverable. As each address is keyed, it is instantaneously validated against a database of a current US addresses and normalized to USPS mailing standards.
As an add-on to this service, we are able to append latitude and longitude to your address records based on the Zip+4. This enables you to determine which of your business locations is closest to each person in your database.
When using our own system, data entry projects incorporate a sophisticated "key-from-image" system. Thus, the first step in our process is to scan hard copy documents using high-speed scanners. The scanned images are imported into our data entry system. For reference purposes, we include the image file name as a field in each data record, thus allowing the client to refer back to the scanned image from which the information was keyed. Image files are provided to data entry clients at no additional cost.
