Data capture – What is Data Capture?

I often go to networking events and see people collecting vast number of business cards.. and I often wonder what happens to the cards collected …Will they be sat on a desk for a while, be put in a business card wallet or simply thrown away?

This brings me on to my blog topic Data Capture –

So what is data capture?…

Data capture is the process of converting paper documents such as business cards, order forms, customer surveys into meaningful usable information that allows companies to have easy access to usable information.. Not only paper information but also information from web sites or micro feich or scanned documents.

Why do people need to data capture?

As you know customer information is an asset to any company, customer name address, items purchased, amount spent, etc however if this information isn’t in a user friendly format it will hinder future analysis and campaigns for example you can’t do a mailing campaign or analyse customer buying patters from a paper list. Easily accessible information that will help you get do more analysis and plan further activities.

So why companies outsource data capture work? People don’t often have the time to enter the information manually so it gets left, or they cant afford the money to recruit staff especially when its a one off  or a seasonal job or sometimes the work is time critical for example a closing date for a competition.
