DataNZ enters data in various formats (MS Word, Excel, Access, Text) or directly to online systems from printed matter, scanned images, websites and handwritten materials. We have achieved a high level of data accuracy, even with extremely difficult-to-read historical content, thanks to our handwriting experts, special processes and unique software. Your documents can be sent to us either as hard copies or as scanned images through Email, FTP or any cloud service.

We have designed and developed a proprietary, state-of-the-art XML-based data conversion tool, ImageXP, which is completely customizable to the needs of any project. Whenever the process changes during the various stages of a project, the tool can be easily modified. ImageXP has the provisions to incorporate validations at every stage and can automatically run in the background during keying. It can be used in a variety of processes and can result in accuracy up to 99.995%.

Testimonials include a full range of digitisation services to a number of prestigious worldwide customers, including several government agencies. We have delivered millions of typed pages to a number of archives, genealogy companies and universities around the world. We have several highly trained transcription experts who are qualified to decipher handwritten manuscripts, from the 15th century to today, with reliable levels of accuracy.
