Data Capture Traditional Method

Your data is an asset and very important. If the quality of the data capture used to construct and then maintain your database is compromised then so is your reputation. Therefore it is of the utmost importance to gather all the information with the highest degree of accuracy and in a responsible manner.

Clearview specialize in data capture. We create usable data for our clients from a whole variety of source documents and images, including –

  • Customer Satisfaction Surveys
  • Market Research Surveys
  • Application/Registration Forms
  • Competition Entries
  • Coupons
  • Directories
  • Business Cards
  • Gone Away’s

The methods used to create this data include manual data capture, scanning, OCR, OMR, barcode reading and automated web capture. We also have an outbound call centre that collect and capture data.

We are an established business with in-excess of 25 years experience. We know how to capture data. We are here to help!

Paper forms are still extensively used by companies to collect information from consumers and businesses. Items such as customer satisfaction surveys, market research surveys, application forms, business cards, gone away’s, coupons, directories etc are all vehicles for collecting information.

To manually capture these forms is a labour intensive process and businesses often spend valuable time and much expense doing so. This process can be significantly more efficient and cost-effective if outsourced.

How do Clearview capture data?

Whether data needs to be captured from paper or image, Clearview has a solution to capture that data efficiently and accurately.

Manual capture – We have onshore and offshore centre’s where manual data capture takes place. Our centre’s run multiple shifts and we have hundreds of operators at our disposal.

Regarding the actual capture process and to ensure the captured data is as accurate as it can be, we use the Royal Mail’s Postal Address File (PAF) wherever possible. In addition we use various QC look-up tables for Titles, Dates of Birth, Product Codes, Source Codes etc.

Clearview also use a range of software based data capture solutions in order to compliment the manual capture process. We have the ability to use OMR, OCR, ICR and Barcode Recognition applications on all scanned documents.
