Shertalk dictates the future for busy lawyers
is proud to announce the launch of its latest innovation -
a new digital dictation service that has been developed for
time-strapped lawyers, harnessing the power of the web to
cut their costs and enhance their productivity.
Entitled 'Shertalk', the new system enables clients to upload
their dictations to a dedicated website and retrieve them
once they have been transcribed. Dictation files that could
be uploaded and transcribed in this way include legal letters,
court transcripts, reports or client correspondence.
Shergroup Chief Executive Claire Sandbrook explained the reasons
behind the development and rolling out of Shertalk:
"Most people can dictate at least seven times faster than
they can type, so it makes economic sense to use a transcription
service which will help them concentrate on their core tasks
with greater competency.
"Clients can even send us
their own templates and tell our team exactly how they like
things done - it's just like having their own secretary in
the office. Even those who prefer the old days of shorthand,
golfball typewriters and mini-cassettes will easily adapt
to this new system."
Shertalk clients will be able to use a digital Dictaphone
linked up to a PC with an Internet connection to dictate the
items they need transcribing. After creating an account at
www.shertalk.net, they will be able to upload their files
and await a message advising them to log in and download their
documents when they have been transcribed, which will happen
within 12 hours.
Claire said: "Transcription
operatives at Shertalk are professionals with excellent knowledge
of legal terminology and methodology, with three levels of
quality assurance. By using our service, our clients can benefit
from a reduced file backlog, enhanced productivity and secure
data storage - 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
Clients can also manage their documents online for up to 90
days - checking on their progress, prioritising urgent work
and revisiting completed files. The Shertalk website is fully
secured and managed to the quality standards of ISO 27001.
Claire added: "Those who don't
have a digital Dictaphone can download an app for their smartphone
which does the same job. Alternatively, they can read their
script over the phone and it will be recorded for transcription.
If that's not an option, they can contact us to see if we
have a solution for them."
A free trial is on offer to prospective Shertalk clients,
where they upload five minutes worth of dictation to be transcribed.
If they are happy with the service, they will be able to set
up their account to pay at the end of each month, or on a
pay-as-you-go system at £1 per minute.
Shertalk is simple, effective and affordable - it's the ideal
tool for busy people in today's fast-paced world, whether
people don't have secretarial support or whether their assistant
is absent or simply snowed under.
