As the name may suggest, data capture is any occasion where the collection of data occurs. Yes, it sounds very professional and as if you’d never need it outside of the office, but it can be any data. Any data you could ever wish for. Including invoice information, a holiday request or social media stats.
Regardless, manual data capture can be laborious and take up precious time. Every second spent copying data from paper and regurgitating it back onto existing systems is time that could be spent on value-generating tasks.
Difficult to distribute, disorganised documents can get in the way of more important activities for yourself and your employees whilst causing unnecessary stress. As well as being problematic to manage, an excessive amount of data requiring old-fashioned capture takes up staff time and resources, and often distracts staff members from tasks they were doing previously.
When there are too many people working on a task all at once, the chances of human error increase massively.
Never fear. You see, automatic data capture is far from fantasy. Key Digital’s automatic data capture solutions come with many benefits, including:
