What is Entrypoint

Entrypoint is a suite of easy to use tools which allow users to design, deploy, and use a wide variety of custom data entry applications with built-in validation, editing, and export options. Entrypoint has many built-in attributes that make adding advanced features such as range checks and table lookups a simple operation.


Electronic Data Capture

Collecting information on paper forms to re-enter it later into a computer system is a double-entry process that adds the risk of transcription errors and takes extra time. Entering data directly into a database via electronic forms eliminates the paper step.

Switching to electronic data capture becomes an even more compelling choice for organizations who face an increase in data volume and rising costs. Companies must cut their development overhead. Switching from paper-based to electronic data capture can lead to cost savings, higher quality data, and a higher degree of security.

The Entrypoint Workstation ensures data integrity through validation during the data entry process. Special features include immediate error detection and flagging, re-key verification, and data retrieval or validation from lookup tables during each phase of data entry.

Data entry operators can set up the workstation to accommodate their work styles—for example, to use an embedded keypad or configure a function key for manual duplication.

Import and export control files can be configured to determine what data is included and in what order, so data can be imported and exported easily to comma-separated files (CSV), XML, PDF, and SAS-readable files that can be imported into the SAS ETL exporter and then exported to multiple formats.
