How many are struggling with this and policies of the companies for which we complete work? We are allowed to use assistants but our clients tell us no outsourcing offshore. Any comments are appreciated.

I see this as a confidentiality issue. An assistant is bound by the same ethics as you since they work for you. If you use someone outside they are not. Finding a platform that transfers data using the MLS number an auto fills the form is the way I choose to go. After auto fill, I go thru an make sure all the info is accurate and add my comments. We are not paid based on our typing skills, but based on the analysis of the data.

I am not sure I understand your question. Are looking to offshore your data entry? Are the mills prohibition of that frustrating you? Kindly clarify.

Have been approached several times by offshore companies to perform data entry. Many of my clients prohibit this and I am not certain as to why because we are allowed to use assistants for data entry. With 4,000 completed a year this would certainly be helpful I think. Just curious on others' experience in this matter, any uses of offshore services and reaction by clients.

4000 a year, as of late? Come on, spare me. Please don't create any false hope for people hoping to make any sort of living doing bpo's.

I was thinking the same thing Newton. That's 75 a week: In Georgia? Im thinking the poster is representing the offshore company. Im just going to watch this thread for a while... closely, as there are no solicitations allowed.

Would appreciate any comments or view points on the outsourcing issue. AnD yes, 4,000k a year - I spend the majority of my time working not posting. 13 years at this and reap the benefit of those bowing out now.

Ive tried a couple of different ones. No thanks. Did not like the quality and spent too much time correcting their mistakes.

Sure, sure you do. You may be working, that I do believe, but not working 4k bpo's per year.

15 a day in a 5 day week - not using an assistant or offshore data entry? If you are completing that many per day, no wonder you are on here looking for a way to make things more streamlined. Not to mention, getting QCed on your volume. I think you maybe padding your numbers just a little. I also think there is zero quality in your BPOs. I take BPOs as a reflection of my experience as an agent and my reputation. I would not complete that many a day because I know the quality would be crap. My name doesn't go on crap work for $50 or at any price. You are not being truthful in a message board, I don't even want to know how you treat clients, asset managers or BPO companies.

I use an Indian firm just for my Altisource BPOs since this new form is soooooooo bad. I won't take them for less than $70 then pay $3 for data entry. I pull the subject info, select the comps and send them along with comp photos. I have found them to be speedy, accurate and good to work with.

Received a solicitation email today. Some of the mill names are misspelled.
I don't know about the rest of you but when I put my name on my work it means I did the work. I do take pride in what I do, I've been doing it for over a decade now.
