    Priced Above the Norm But Worth Every Penny

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    My overall goal is to provide quality transcripts on time and on budget. The quality of my work speaks for itself. I never take on a job I cannot finish. With several thousand jobs under my belt in 15 years I have never missed a deadline. Feedback is an excellent indicator of the service and quality you can expect to get! I have many repeat clients and great reviews to prove it! One of the biggest mistakes companies can make is sacrificing the quality of the work in order to save a few dollars. In the end you will spend more time and money trying to get it corrected. I DO NOT use speech to text software as it is not reliable and will require quite a bit of editing and proofing to make it accurate. Beware of providers who state they can get your job done quickly because they utilize this type of software! I proof all of my work prior to submitting and I capture every word! I make every effort to satisfy all of my clients needs when it comes to budget and turnaround. If there are any necessary changes I am more than happy to make them! Invite my bid today! Not all transcriptionists are created equal so make sure you're getting the best quality product for the price and with a provider you can rely on time and time again! Is the output customizable? Absolutely! I offer most clients a standard format with intelligent verbatim unless otherwise specified. However, if you would like a specific format please let me know, I am happy to accommodate and I follow any guidelines for formatting standards your company has already established. Am I a professional provider? I try my very best to meet all of my clients demands in a professional manner. I realize that you cannot please everyone but if you experience any issues along the way please feel free to notify me. I am available to communicate through the Workroom or email throughout the day and evening to ensure your job is completed to your satisfaction. I simply ask that you make yourself available for questions or concerns along the way as well to ensure work gets finished in a timely manner and to your specifications. Why don't you see any samples in my portfolio? My clients trust me with their content and to ensure their privacy and their confidentiality my work is not used as a sample. If you'd like to see what I'm made of then please request a short one to two minute sample before awarding the job. I am more than happy to submit you with a short sample to show you the quality of work I deliver. Why are my rates above the norm? I feel that 15 years experience warrants a fair price. Sixty minutes of audio can take up to four hours to transcribe and that's if the audio quality is good. Investing time in your job is my mission but it does come with a price. My time is valuable and so is my clients. I aim to please and I get the job done; no excuses! If I commit to a project then it's my guarantee not only on the turnaround but the quality. Today there are so many providers bidding with low rates. What can you expect with this? From time to time you do get lucky and find a provider that can deliver good quality output for a very low price but many times you get let down time after time with either no results or a poor quality transcript meaning you invest more money in another provider to get it done right. If you're looking for low budget then I'm not the right fit for you or your company! You also run the risk of having your project shipped out to another provider that you may or may not know about and when delivered it hasn't been proofed or reviewed; is that money well spent? So, why should you consider me for your next transcription project? I can guarantee you that you will receive low-ball rates, but remember that you often get what you pay for. My rates are described upfront so you always know what you're getting. With me, there are no surprises. I offer top-quality work within a reasonable turnaround and I work weekends and holidays to ensure your deadlines are met without charging additional fees. I know how to do my job! I do not need supervision and detailed instructions to provide clients with a product they can be happy to share with colleagues and other firms. Are you tired of the excuses as to why your project wasn't delivered on time or to the quality you expected? I know you're busy professional and I want you to know you can trust me with your next project. If I say I can do it then I deliver. Stop investing your money in a provider who gives you excuse after excuse and fails to deliver. If you want it done right the first time then I'm your gal!
