Turnaround Time

DigitScribe has round-the-clock operations and the turnaround time (TAT) is always discussed before taking up any assignment. Generally, DigitScribe offers a 24 hour turnaround time. To ensure we meet our TAT, a Team Leader is assigned to monitor the workflow from their assigned clients and manage their transcription team. Our Operations Coordinator monitors the turnaround times and assists with customer service issues. Each client’s account is staffed to accommodate contractual turnaround requirements.

State-of-the-art internet-based technology allows our transcriptionists to access real-time client specific information. The technology also allows flexibility in scheduling of transcriptionists, enabling our Team Leaders to manage turnaround times and quality standards, regardless of staffing interruptions.

Transcription work is distributed based on the transcriptionist’s work pool. The work pools are assigned according to the transcriptionist’s skill level, work schedule, and turnaround time. To promote quality and productivity, our transcriptionists are assigned to a limited number of accounts and work types.

Our editors review the transcription for accuracy and completeness. Any inaccurate or left out words from transcriptionists are corrected at this time. We maintain an optimal ratio of 3:1 between transcriptionists and editors. In order to maintain our high accuracy level each transcription is cross-verified by an experienced proof reader. Our proof readers have at least 4 years of experience in transcription and quality control.

Production Manager (PM)

The Production Manager has the overall responsibility for the delivery including timeliness and quality. Production Manager acts as the Account Manager, acting as the single-point-of-contact with each client. Once the QC has reviewed a batch of files, the PM is responsible to do a final quality check before releasing the transcripts to the client. The final product does not go to the customer if he/she does not feel satisfied with the level of quality.
