Data Capture For Retail
Paper surveys are still used by some firms even though many businesses have switched to using digital technologies to collect survey information. This could be because of the nature of their customer base or the requirements of their business. Restaurants, like any other business, can benefit greatly from collecting useful feedback from patrons through the use of customer satisfaction surveys, which are strong tools. As soon as clients have supplied a credible insight into their perspectives regarding your company, it is time to collect and examine the data to determine whether or not common issues have been brought up and whether or not they need to be solved. Information for mailing lists and loyalty programmes, information from consumer surveys, and information regarding vouchers and coupons are all examples of data that are essential assets in the retail industry. It enables you to better understand and communicate with your clients, and it has the potential to be a useful tool in engaging your customers and enticing them to make a purchase. In a market that moves as swiftly as this one does, it is crucial to engage your customers as quickly as possible. On the other hand, compiling all of this information is not without its challenges. Paper forms are still used on a reasonably regular basis in the retail industry, and moving information from paper forms to digital systems frequently needs the entering of data by hand. As a direct consequence of this, a significant amount of time is thrown away, and errors are committed.
This issue can be remedied by the utilisation of intelligent data capturing. Cleardata is able to rapidly and accurately collect critical data from retail forms and documents using its cutting-edge OCR technology. This enables you to use the information as soon as possible, which saves your company both time and money.
What are some of the ways that data capturing is used in retail?
Data collection from various forms, including sales order forms, customer feedback surveys, client disclaimer forms, loyalty card forms, discount forms, and more, is accomplished through the use of automated data processing. Documents are scanned in, and clever data capture software is used to extract vital information from the scanned images. This is done at Cleardata's specialised scanning bureau, which then sends all of the data that has been captured as well as compiled back to the company.
Because of this, there is no longer any requirement for the members of your staff to waste their time entering data by hand. In addition, there is no longer any need to enter data into a variety of different systems or spreadsheets, which eliminates the chance for confusion as well as errors. The processing of all of the essential data that you require in order to optimise your company can be done in a brisk and effective manner with the use of data capture.
Design and processing of questionnaires and form-based surveys
OCR technology requires information to be in a particular format in order to successfully extract text from scanned documents. It has to be documented on specifically formatted forms that can be handled quickly and efficiently. Cleardata is able to assist you in this endeavour as well, as we will collaborate with you to build forms that are compatible with our OCR scanners.
Cleardata is there to help you gather, capture, and verify the information, and return it to you in a format that is usable, whether it's forms to sign up for loyalty cards, customer surveys to gain valuable customer insights, or any other kind of form in data entry service . Whether it's for loyalty cards, customer surveys, or any other kind of form. In addition, because Cleardata provides a wide variety of document and data management services, if there are extra spaces for handwritten comment, the trained data entry staff at Cleardata is able to record this for you digitally as well. This service is free of charge.

What are the advantages of doing so?
The retail industry stands to gain a great deal by implementing automated data collecting systems. The elimination of the requirement for staff members to manually enter data will, first and foremost, result in time savings. This frees up personnel to focus on other more productive tasks. Additionally, this will, of course, help you save money.
An further benefit is an improvement in precision. The data obtained through the use of intelligent capture technology is exceptionally accurate and is obtained in a consistent manner. Because Cleardata places such a high priority on quality, every piece of data that is collected is double checked and triple examined before being stored.
The ability to move quickly is yet another very crucial advantage. Because the processing of data is far quicker than the human entering of data, you won't miss any additional time that you could be using reaching out to customers, analysing feedback, and moving your organisation ahead.
