What sorts of services are offered by a professional transcription company?

There are certain jobs that must be done in all companies that are going to take a lot of time, even if they are not always the most difficult or strenuous tasks to complete. But, the time consuming element of these tasks is important, and it is something that all companies must think carefully about and be ready to act on – as the saying goes, time is money, and this is especially true when it comes to business.

One such task that many people may have to take into consideration like this is transcription work. There are many different companies who will require transcription of one form or another, and it is a task though that often not too difficult to complete, can take a lot of an individual’s or company’s time. There is a solution for this, however. There are professional companies who offer transcription services at extremely competitive rates, giving their clients the chance to get their transcription work completed to the highest possible standard. In the long run, and due to the time saved, using these sorts of companies can prove to be a wise investment for businesses.

In this article, we are going to take a quick look at just some of the sorts of services that professional transcription companies may have on offer for their clients.

High quality transcription work with a quick turnaround time

The real, key service that a good transcription company can offer is that they can complete the work from files in a whole range of formats, and do so with a speedy turnaround time. As was discussed in the introduction, one of the main reasons a business might want to use a transcription company in the first place is to save themselves time, so quick responses and results from professional transcription services is to be expected.

Specialised industry experience, where appropriate

There are some forms of transcription that are more in depth and specialised than many people might expect or imagine. In fields such as legal transcription or medical transcription, it is absolutely imperative that the transcriptionist has a full, working experience of the field and the terms used in it to complete the job properly. This is something that a top rate professional transcription company should be able to offer to all of their clients, where necessary.

Transcription of telephone and conference calls

Many of the meetings and events that take place nowadays that require transcription may not even be done between individuals, face to face. In today’s modern, digital world in particular, many, many business meetings and conferences are carried out over the phone, either simply in the form of a telephone call, or if there are more than two people involved, in the form of a conference call.  These conversations and meetings can be recorded, and the content of them transcribed by professionals.

Data entry

Though not strictly transcription work, another service that some professional companies will offer is data entry work. This is another one of those tasks which may not be the most difficult, but can still be extremely important and take up a lot of time. Using the services provided to get the work complete means that companies can then let their staff focus their time on other pressing tasks that need to be completed.

Summary – This article is taking a look at the different transcription services that are offered by professionals in the field. Specialised industry experience, for example, can be provided to clients if necessary.
