Benefits of data entry
When a business is starting out, it’s important to keep costs down; using notebooks, client cards and white boards for record keeping and contact details is simple and easy to follow. But as a business grows, its relationships and connections become more involved and extensive; the hand-written notes and desk rolodexes are no longer efficient for daily operations.
This means it’s time to transfer all your company contacts, relationships and records to a database or CRM, Customer Relationship Management system. This will allow easy access for all team members to make client contact and keep up to date with client histories and activities, as well as planning ahead.
How do you get rid of the filing cabinets and client cards and bring your business into the age of digital data?
A Data Entry Clerk is similar to a typist, and is someone who has proficient computer skills, an eye for detail and can work quickly and accurately to enter or update your data into a computer system database, eliminating all the paper documents. The average hourly pay rate for a Data Entry Clerk is $20.58 per hour, not including super, insurance and other employee related costs. Or, if you enjoy working with computers and can type quickly this job could be completed by the business owner, if you have the time.
