Utilize Current Data Trends By Outsourcing Data Mining

Data mining analyzes raw data to be used as a powerful tool for making predictive and informed strategies. While this data is the key to success having to collect, sift through, analyze, and centralize it all is a large task to handle.
Creating an in-house team to collect and analyze large sets of data wastes your company resources because data mining is not done on a daily basis. This gives you three options: pull current employees, hire new employees, or partner with an outsourcing team that works based on your needs. Businesses often choose to outsource this task.
Issues such as duplicate entries, possible fraud, or even data entry errors can significantly impede company productivity and growth making accuracy a top priority. Additionally, some of the common issues in data mining such as data quality, efficiency, and dealing with non-static data is solved through outsourcing.

How Does GDPR Affect Outsourcing?

As of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was enforced to ensure that companies are protecting EU citizen’s personal data. GDPR compliance breaks down the responsibility of data management between the “Controller” and the “Processor.” The Controller determines how the personal data will be used while the Processor must be in compliance with the security of data during processing workflow and storage. As a Processor, outsourcing companies have thorough security procedures in place to ensure GDPR outsourcing compliance.

How Long is ‘Too Long’ When it Comes to Rebate Processing?

Rebates and sweepstakes contests are great promotional tools to acquire new customers and retain current customers. Businesses often choose to outsource this labor-intensive back-end process to a rebate processing company to efficiently streamline and decrease cycle time.
Often, these rebate processes require you to mail in proof of purchase along with a form filled out with some basic information. These programs are usually run as a limited-time event but can quickly accumulate into a large volume document processing task. Businesses often choose to outsource this labor-intensive back-end process to a rebate processing company to efficiently streamline this process.

Outsourcing Rebate Processing to Eliminate Cycle Time

One of the most common questions consumers ask regarding rebates is “how long does a rebate take to process?” On average rebates take a minimum of 4 weeks to process, but the length in rebate processing has not changed much over time as we see in an article from 1986 most rebates take 6 to 8 weeks or more which is similar to a tax refund.
Having to collect, extract data, analyze, and process checks for thousands of participants can take a very long time. Many businesses that offer these rebate opportunities do not have the necessary resources to efficiently process rebates in-house. Each rebate has value and ensuring that each one is accounted for is important for both compliance and customer satisfaction.
Mohit Tater of Entrepreneurship Life explains that businesses outsource tedious work and specialty work that is not being done efficiently in-house. Rather than spending more time and money trying to complete tasks such as rebate processing, outsourcing this task onto a reliable company makes this process more efficient.

Data Entry from Invoices to Reduce Accounting Data Entry Costs

Outsourcing the work of data entry for incoming vendor invoices helps many accounting departments reduce their operating costs.
Significant accuracy and cycle time improvements can be achieved when Data Entry Services are utilized for vendor invoice data entry.
Vendor invoices still come in as paper. Someone has to process the incoming mail, open the mail and key the data from the invoices into your accounting system. It maybe ok when the volume of invoices is low to perform all this data entry in-house. However as the volume increases you want to spend less and less time in transcribing the data from the paper invoice into your system. A client of ours had a few thousand invoices which came in every month- both as PDF and as paper.

How Do You Deliver Success when performing Data Entry from Invoices?

Each vendor invoice has a different format. Data on invoices appears in different places ruling out data extraction by simple OCR. It requires intelligent interpretation and collection of data from the different locations of the invoice. Data on invoices may in addition require a separate reconciliation against the ledger data.
 Data Entry was required to transcribe the data from the vendor invoices in order to create a database. To reduce cycle time data entry from invoices needs to be done quickly and accurately. All the data has to be keyed accurately to assure that final data used for vendor invoice payment is 100% accurate
 All data from vendor invoices is double keyed. Compare data checks and validation data checks are performed to assure 100% accuracy of data. Data is also keyed from summary sheets and reconciliation data checks are performed.
