Cloud-based transcription services open up the doors to not only small firm lawyers, but also small business owners. Now it is possible to have an army of transcriptionists without breaking the bank. Before cloud-based services were developed, dictation services were generally only available to larger firms or companies who had armies of secretaries and transcriptionists waiting for the dictations.
Typically, a small business owner could not afford to have a transcriptionist sit in the office 40 hours a week. Not to mention hire a transcriptionist who is available 24/7.
The beauty of cloud-based dictation services is that they are on demand, professional, and available 24/7. As a small business owner, you won’t have to worry about worker’s compensation, unemployment insurance, sick pay, or vacation pay.
The main benefit is that you have the resources of a large firm or company available at any time, without any of the overhead. You can use it when you need it, where you need it, and only pay for what you use.
