Automated Data Entry Services

Kaplan Research Associates Inc. has been providing automated data entry services since 1999. This includes the use of OCR (fill-in the bubble) and ICR (alpha and numeric character recognition) scanning solutions, based on the TELEform scanning suite. We can transform an existing form to a verbatim scannable form, or work with you to create a scannable form from scratch.

Over the years we have developed long-term relationships with many agencies, government departments, and other research firms that require the ongoing processing of large numbers of forms or questionnaires. We have the capacity to process approximately 46 pages per minute based on simplex (one-sided) forms, and 92 pages per minute based on duplex (double-sided) forms. The scanned data are easily transferrable to SPSS or other platforms for immediate analysis.
