DataNZ is a leading data entry services provider that specialises in converting scanned images, handwritten documents, and printed materials into Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and Text formats. Our team of specialists uses special processes and unique software to achieve high accuracy even with extremely difficult-to-read historical content.

Our data entry services are flexible and can be customised to meet the specific requirements of any project. We have designed a proprietary, state-of-the-art XML-based data conversion tool called ImageXP that can be easily modified to accommodate changes in the process during various stages of a project. ImageXP also incorporates validations at every stage and can run automatically in the background during keying, resulting in accuracy up to 99.995%.

We have served several prestigious worldwide customers, including government agencies, and delivered millions of typed pages to archives, genealogy companies, and universities worldwide. Our highly trained transcription experts can decipher handwritten manuscripts from the 15th century to present day with reliable levels of accuracy.

Examples of our work include data entry of several typed and handwritten manuscripts in various Australian aboriginal languages and providing high accuracy outputs in XML format for the University of Melbourne, University of Sydney, and Edith Cowan University. We have also manually digitised an 80-year-old Italian book containing the Lotuxo language written in a partial phonetic script.

In addition, we offer other data entry services such as the entry of Accident Compensation referrals to a cloud-based system for a leading healthcare provider in New Zealand, data entry of required information from product images to an online nutritional database for a global standards organisation, data entry of Community Nursing Minimum Data Sets for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and data capture of the POKEM clinical trial forms for the Queensland Emergency Medicine Research Foundation Grant Researcher. We also performed data entry of the 2006 Australian Government Child Care Census for the Australian Government Department of Families, Community Services, and Indigenous Affairs.

Whether your documents are hard copies or scanned images sent through email, FTP, or any cloud service, DataNZ is your trusted partner in providing accurate and reliable data entry services. We can handle any type of data entry project with speed and accuracy, no matter how large or small. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you with your data entry needs!
