What is Viking Data Entry (VDE)

VDE has been the preferred solution for faster, easier, more accurate keyboard data entry from paper documents since 1980. It combines the best features of “heads up” and “heads down” data entry in an integrated system available on a variety of computer platforms—PC, Linux, UNIX, VMS. VDE’s full-screen approach makes it as effective for “heads up” applications as it is for “heads down” entry. VDE includes the tools that are critical for the most challenging key entry applications.
