Why You Should Outsource Transcribing?

Have you ever heard of transcribing companies? They are companies that specialize in the transcribing – or the writing down of live or recorded speech – services. These companies are usually sought out by the institutions mainly in the legal, medical and law enforcement sectors; however, nowadays, many business companies realize the advantages of leaving paperwork of this nature to these companies. Among these benefits are:

• It is cost-effective – the very first advantage of relying on transcribing services is that you can expect to save a lot of unnecessary expenses. Transcribers and secretaries require an average salary, not to add of other extra bonuses, premiums, insurance and health schemes, etc. that add on this basic salary. On the other hand, when you rely on a transcribing company, you will not be paying for any of these extras: most of these companies charge by the minute, or by the number of lines in any project. It does not take much for one to figure out which is the less expensive choice.

• It is flexible – another thing that should be noted against having transcribers within a company is the fluctuations in the required reports, hearings, voice notes, minutes and interview transcription services NZ. Any business will not have the same volume of material to be transcribed every month; the volume usually increases during peak times of customer services, etc. and declines when the company is not very active in oral meetings and the like. As such, keeping transcribers within a company during low volume times will only be an unnecessary expense. On the other hand, by outsourcing transcribing, you can completely evade this expense, as you will only contact the company when needed and only for the material needed.

• You gain professional services – audio transcription services are not something just anyone could provide. Whilst your own employees might be able to do this to some extent in general, the professional service that you can expect of a reputed company cannot be expected of your own employees. These companies have specialized staff who can work not just fast, but also accurately. The usual standards that these companies have is quite close to hundred percent in perfection, which means they allow only a couple of mistakes in a project. On the other hand, an unexperienced employee can only do so much in little time, and will definitely be prone to mistakes.

• You save your employees’ time – even if you do not keep separate transcribers for your transcribing work, and instead make your other employees do this, the result will be sloppy on one hand, and on the other, you will be wasting the precious time of your employees – which can and should be invested in much more appropriate projects related to their fields and expertise.
