A typical data entry job requires the use of a computer to enter data (thus the word “data entry”) and save it in a digitized format, e.g. documents and databases.
Data conversion is the conversion of computer data from one format to another. Throughout a computer environment, data is encoded in a variety of ways.
Internet research is the practice of using Internet information, especially free information on the World Wide Web, or Internet-based resources in research.
A web service is a service offered by an electronic device to another electronic device, communicating with each other via the World Wide Web.
Online data entry is different from offline data entry. A person or company assigned these tasks should be adept at browsing the internet. These services are generally time consuming, which is the main reason behind many business organizations outsourcing them. It helps them in saving costs incurred in hiring in-house data entry staff. Mostly these tasks involve placing information on e-commerce websites, data processing, filling and submission of internet based forms, processing of images and checks, data indexing, data mining, etc. The tasks are slightly more complex than online data mining and require more qualified staff.
Offline Data Entry refers to storage or entry of information related to a particular database without the requirement of any internet connection. For example, a person or a company might be assigned the task of filling hundreds of forms. In such cases the payment will be made on the basis of work assigned. There is also a chance of such tasks being performed using Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. But obviously internet will not be used in such tasks. There is an old world charm in these tasks as skills like typing and drafting are required. These tasks are very simple and only require basic education. Even knowledge of using the internet and basic computer knowledge is not required
