Outsourcing is becoming big everywhere!
It's a great way for companies to reduce costs while getting the job done. I think companies now focus on being very good at a niche and then outsource other areas of their business to keep being competitive.
I don't know how things are in Malaysia, but I think that data entry outsourcing will be big in every country where tech is becoming important!
Here in portugal many companies require the services of "temps" to do data entry, so if there was a company offering good data entry technicians, it would have a great future.
Best luck for your business!
