What is Data Capturing?
Data Capturing involves the transforming of written or typed data from hard copies to computerized media. This captured data can be presented to the client on virtually any storage medium, including stiffies, compact disc, or by using e-mail, direct data communication, dial-up connection and File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
The Format of the Data
Some practitioners in the IT field claim that off-line data capturing cannot be used to the advantage of organizations using modern technology today. They argue that the data capturing is old-fashioned and that the files created are not compatible with the latest database software.
This is indeed a misconception. Datanet can present the captured data in a large variety of formats. These formats include:
  1. Flat ASCII files (Text)
  2. Comma delimited files
  3. Microsoft Access files
  4. Microsoft Excel files
  5. Multi punching
  6. SPSS
Datanet can supply the data in a format that can be incorporated into any modern system. Please contact us if you have any queries regarding the data format.
