Doing data entry work from home enables flexibility, promotes work life balance and allows the clerk to save money. Generally, it also allows for all the benefits involved in working from home.
Data entry from home allows a clerk to work his own hours, and even if he needs to work specific hours, he can take a break and use it however he wishes and sometimes in ways that wouldn't be possible in a traditional office.
Flexibility in turn leads to work-life balance. A clerk can arrange his work schedule around his other activities as long as he meets his work deadline. This is liberating if for example an emergency occurs because he can rearrange his schedule for the day to compensate for the time spent off work.
A clerk saves money by not having to go out to work. This includes gas money, money spent acquiring an appropriate wardrobe for the office and meal costs. He also saves time that he could have spent commuting to work. Commuting is also exhausting for most people, especially in traffic jams.
While working from home, a clerk is not tied to one position as happens in an office situation. He can, for instance decide ,to use his kitchen bar as a standing desk or can work while enjoying the outdoors.
