Increasing demand for digital content by global organizations empowered the need for transcription technology and automation.

The NetScribe platform simplifies and secures verbatim transcripts using AI-powered workflows to accelerate transcription by over 30 percent. With NetScribe, transcription companies have secure and reliable access to progressive, single and multi-channel audio recordings for quick rendering into comprehensive, formatted documents for professional editors to promptly review and edit. The addition of NetScribe technology in Canada and the United Kingdom creates a highly secure environment that is nationalized to support local data sovereignty requirements.

“NetScribe is a secure workflow management tool that allows our business to leverage speech recognition technology within our transcription workflow,” said Maria French, CEO, Nova Transcribe, a current NetScribe client. “Simple interfaces made it easy for us to set up our customers and deliver quality transcripts on time.”

To enable digital transformation for Transcription Service Providers globally, VIQ announced the appointment of Joel Turry as VP Sales, Transcription Providers, to drive the channel sales strategy and enablement programs to meet aggressive growth objectives. An experienced leader in the Transcription Services Provider space, Mr. Turry has more than 25 years experience in transcription services and workflow transformation.

It also enables global transcription companies to expand their workflows by offering a secure method to create comprehensive documentation in the most efficient way possible. AI technology, augmented by human expertise, improves speed, accessibility and quality of highly complex documentation.”
