Swivel Chair Interface

Definition - What does Swivel Chair Interface mean?

Swivel chair interface is a slang expression for manually entering data into one computer or network system and then entering, or re-keying, the same data into another system. A swivel chair interface is a workaround used when attempts to configure or set up either system to effect the transfer fail.

Techopedia explains Swivel Chair Interface

The swivel chair interface can be eliminated through better network management and data integration combined with more unified interfaces.

The term is derived from the action of entering data on one office system and then turning in a swiveling office chair to enter the same data on another accessible system.
