Audio/Video Transcription Service
The genesis of CGBiz Corporation happened around March 2008 when our founder, Rajiv Poddar was winding up his previous venture (Sedna Wireless Pvt. Ltd.) and was trying to commercialize a Skype recording plugin which he had written for use within the company. At that time there were no free Skype recording tools available. The first version of CallGraph Skype Recorder was released in March 2008 as a freeware. The idea was to develop a 'freemium' business model based on services offered around the Skype recording application.
Audio transcription was one of the services which was offered initially and it proved to be the most popular service. During that time we also discovered that audio transcription was a big pain point for both customers and transcribers. Customers had a hard time finding a high quality and reliable transcription service. The transcribers had to spend undue amount of effort to transcribe and struggled to maintain the quality when faced with volumes. We decided to focus on audio transcription and build a system which had quality checks and balances inbuilt into the process, minimized the manual effort required for transcription and could handle large volumes.
Scribie.com is the result of that. We developed a system which manages the process end-to-end and delivers high quality transcripts. The transcription work is done by freelance home-based transcribers and managed completely via the Internet. Our system can handle large volumes without compromising on the accuracy and quality. It manages the complexity involved in efficiently distributing the files to the transcribers, vetting their work and detecting and correcting the mistakes and making payments to them, thereby resulting in a high quality transcript and very satisfactory experience both for the customer and the transcriber. We believe that our audio transcription service is the best-in-class service that exists today.
Our system is continuously under development and we are working round the clock to improve it. We are on a mission to build the world's best transcription service and the best place to find audio transcription work. We invite you to join us in our journey.
