Actual Business Ideas


A transcription service is not always something that automatically comes to mind in your day to day business activities. It can however be exceptionally useful in lots of different areas. It is often people’s perception that it is an outdated mode of working. However, nothing could be further from the truth as in this modern world transcription services are actually booming. Here are some reasons you might want to incorporate them into your business.


Accurate records are more important than ever:

We need to keep up to date and accurate records of an ever increasing number of things. This can be for legal reasons, for training purposes or as part of a process to make things run smoother. Having something that is accurate and which we can refer back to for reference can make the difference between success and failure. This is why many companies record meetings and events to be transcribed into a written format which people can absorb and action out of the context of a meeting room – after the event. It is a way of communicating with each other and letting others know what has transpired. This is why activities such as medical transcription or the transcription of legal proceedings are so important to get right.

Saves time and money:

Transcribing audio files into a written format is a specialist skill-set. Especially when it comes to subjects which require technical knowledge to understand contexts and jargon. Employing your own staff to do this for you is often not financially viable as the work load for many companies fluctuates through peaks and troughs and you run the risk of not being able to cope at peak times and having staff with nothing to do at others, whilst having to pay salaries and overheads for them. By employing a company to outsource your transcription work to you only pay for the work that you need to be done as they often only charge per line or per minute. This also leaves you to use your own resources on more important priority tasks.

Speed and flexibility:

You can expect a fast turnaround from most transcription companies. This means that you can have someone to transcribe a meeting or a focus group for you so that your own staff can focus on asking the right questions, and then have what was said in that meeting on your desk in a matter of hours. Any reputable transcription service will only employ highly skilled and focused transcribers so you can be assured of the quality of what you receive. All work should also be proof-read by any good provider before you even see it.

Do your research and ask other colleagues in your business whether they use a transcription service. Personal recommendation is a good way to find a company that you can rely on. You might be surprised how useful they can be.
