Data entry can be classified into two categories – online and offline data entry. What sets them apart is the requirement for internet connectivity for processing the available data. Offline data entry, as the name suggests, does not need internet connectivity to interpret data. On the other hand, online data entry requires internet connectivity for processing data. Tasks can be as simple as transferring information from scanned handwritten documents to more complex tasks such as in customer brokerage where documents are thoroughly analyzed and input into the system in an appropriate format.
