Data Entry Estimation
Use this form to develop an estimate of an approximate value of what a data entry job will cost based on the amount of data needed to be keyed into a spreadsheet from a paper listing. For any additional information that needs to be provided for an estimate, contact DMC Office Services via Email or telephone.

This form provides an estimate only and may be modified after review. Note that data entry jobs from other paper based documents such as booklets or from electronic files or web sites impact the data entry process and these types of jobs must be reviewed individually. Data entry jobs need to be reviewed to determine the complexity involved based on source data extraction and specific work involved in entry process. Additionally, any database creation activities are outside the scope of this estimate.
