Keypunching is a type of coding where a Keypunch Operator enters data into a computer by using a keyboard or a keypad.  In the era before computers, Keypunch referred to a device used to punch holes into punch cards which contained data to be processed.  Forr's began it's service on IBM Keypunch data recorders but has evolved to direct digital data entry with the ability to process data to many file and data types.  The tradition of Keypunch remains as the foundation of our business which includes double key verification.  The data is re-keyed a second time to produce the highest level of accuracy.  Forr's also continues to use the card punch style keyboard.  The operator's fingers never leave the home row because the numeric characters are embedded in the alpha keys. This specialized keyboard allows for the capturing of accurate data at very high speeds.  This high speed form of entry allows Forr's to maximize production, maximize project turnaround and provide cost-effective record rates
