How transcription can boost business workflow

Converting speech to text is new on the scene, but it's already saving businesses both time and money. Learn how transcription will change the way you work.

May 14, 2019

As a business, you should prioritize making sure you’re running things in the most productive way. Workflows are an essential part of keeping things on track and helping you run an efficient business, so starting with solidifying your workflows is good practice. There are lots of obvious things you can do to optimize processes and increase general output, but there are other ways that might surprise you. Let’s take a look at some essential productivity enhancers.

What are workflows for business?

A workflow is a set of steps designed to get your project from start to finish - simple as that.

Depending on the organization, a business workflow can be a range of things. In your car-painting business, the workflow can break the task into sourcing paint, stripping original colors, sanding and applying the new color, for example. For content writers, your business workflow can include the planning stage, research, writing, editing, proofreading, publishing and sharing.

 

Transcription is a tool for working more efficiently

 

Business workflows are designed to organize work and increase workplace productivity. But we need to speed things up a bit in some of our workflows, and one of the best ways to do this is with a helping hand from technology. There are workflow tools out there to help with team collaboration, project management, and all-round productivity in business that you should take notice of and use to your advantage in such a cut-throat enterprise climate. If your competitors are doing it faster without compromising on quality, you’re not working effectively and need to up your game - they’re using tech to their advantage and you should be, too.

 

Getting things done: Harnessing tech to boost your business

Manually transcribing content from spoken word to written record is a business workflow that can be incredibly time, money and resource-intensive. Simply sourcing transcribers and digital audio typists, or finding a manual transcription service that’s within budget and able to meet all your needs, is time consuming to start with. If you opt to hire a dedicated transcriber you’ll have the added expense of an additional salary, and working with a manual transcription company hurts your bottom line, too. Strictly speaking, neither option will boost your business workflow like Trint’s automated transcription platform.

Today’s content creators have a crazy workflow that involves ideating, creating, sharing and updating audio, video and written content, while making sure everything is accessible to a huge audience and keeping the search engines happy. That’s a pretty major job to keep on top of. Productivity is key for all content creators - integrating Trint’s platform into their business workflow increases employee productivity and work efficiency.
