  • 1. Data Entry Error Leads To Demolition of  Historic Building in St. Louis Data entry errors can sometimes have irrevocable consequences. This is borne out by the recent demolition of a historic protected building in St. Louis. The building once housed a saloon and butcher shop and its main attraction was an iconic mural of a hippie named Beardy McGreen created by stencil artist Peat Wollaeger in 2006. This quaint 1890s-era century structure and the mural recently became a victim of clerical error and were brought down by the city’s demolition crews. How the data entry error occurred The historical building at St Louis located at 818 South Fourth Street was part of the South Fourth Street Commercial District. This district had been placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006, a designation which means that it requires a demolition permit and should be reviewed by the Cultural Resources Office (the city’s preservation agency). In this case, the review never happened as a city employee incorrectly entered its address into the database which caused the structure got listed outside the historical district. Erroneous manual data entry transfer between two databases resulted in the permit application for the structure to appear on the list of those not entitled to review. The building was razed to the ground last December. City officials have since taken additional measures and precautions to prevent errors and ensure that historic structures are properly assessed to determine whether they can be saved. www.managedoutsource.com 8006702809
  • 2. Typical data entry errors situations • As invalid value is entered in a field or a value is not entered for a required field. • Incomplete or incorrect information or lack of proper information cause fudging. • Lack of accuracy when the data entry operator is rushed or put under pressure to enter a huge pile of data in a short span of time. • Entry using voice recognition software is prone to errors if the input voice cannot be interpreted properly. • Misspellings can result in serious database issues. Professional Data Entry Services to Eliminate Errors In this fast moving world, accurate and effective data entry plays an important role in making meaningful decisions. Errors leading to incorrect decisions, as in case of the historic building in St Louis, cannot be revoked. Partnering with a professional data entry company is the best way to avoid manual data entry errors. Professional data entry services come with multiple quality checks so that errors that go undetected at one stage of the process are indentified and corrected before they are delivered to the client company. www.managedoutsource.com 8006702809
