Many companies have transitioned to a remote work setup in recent years, changing the norm for business communications worldwide. Although instant chat messaging like Slack, Asana, and others are still available, conference calls and Zoom meetings have become the more prominent way of sharing information among organizations as it provides more benefits.
A typical conference call can last an hour or more, especially if multiple important items need to be discussed. And as with most lengthy business meetings, it can be challenging to keep track of essential details, which is why most companies record calls and keep conference call transcripts for future reference.
Sorting through a substantial amount of audio and video recording is time-consuming. Having a conference call transcription allows for easier reviewing of everything discussed and access to relevant data much quicker. And if you’re looking for general transcription services, Ditto Transcripts is here to help you.

The Benefits of Conference Call Transcription
There are several advantages in having conference call transcripts done for you. Below, we discuss the best benefits call transcriptions will provide your business.
Easier Access to Essential Information
Conference calls are the perfect avenue for brainstorming ideas, training sessions, and meeting with clients and upper management. Since a lot of these calls usually run for an hour or more, finding information can be frustrating and time-consuming if you don’t have a transcript of the call. With a call transcription, you can easily find the part of the conversation you need using “Ctrl+F” within the document. This saves time and ensures you don’t miss any important items or tasks needing your attention.
Instant Marketing Material
A conference call transcript can boost your company’s marketing efforts. For example, if you conducted an interview with a thought leader and recorded the conversation, your marketing team can quickly create content based on the dialogue with a call transcript. Having a written document makes it easier to pull direct quotes and identify the most important information shared.
Also, search engines can’t (yet) crawl any audio file or video content. Transcripts can significantly enhance your SEO efforts and boost your rankings, increasing the chances of your target customers seeing your website first in case they need your products or services and are searching online for it.
Excellent Accessibility Solution
Keeping call transcripts ensures that team members who are deaf or hard of hearing can still participate in meetings and contribute to the decision-making process.
Some people learn better by reading than listening, and having conference call transcriptions shows that your company caters to different learning styles, which can significantly impact employee engagement, satisfaction, and productivity.
Transcribing business calls and conference calls also ensures everyone is on the same page. This applies especially to employees who could not attend the meeting or might have missed parts of the call due to any number of reasons like choppy reception.
Conference call transcripts help your company develop a more efficient documentation and archiving system.
Written versions of your business conference calls serve as a reliable future reference for compliance officers, upper management, and consultants who might want to revisit important meetings during a year-end review or board meeting.
Transcripts also give business professionals a chance to review how they did on their calls, so they can better identify their strengths and weaknesses and how they could improve their public speaking abilities.
Another good thing about transcription files is that they are usually much smaller than video files, so uploading them to a cloud server or your company servers will take up way less space.
Ditto Transcripts Provides Reliable Conference Call Transcription Services
Conference calls save time, money, and energy, transcribing them on your own though will take a lot of effort, especially if you aren’t a trained transcriptionist.
Luckily, you can hand the work over to Ditto Transcripts. Our company uses US-based, college educated, human transcribers who can generate accurate transcripts of your conference calls in no time. All you have to do is send us the meeting recording, then our professional transcribers will produce a high-quality meeting transcript that complies with your exact specifications.
You might be tempted to use conference call transcription software to transcribe your conference call recordings. However, automatic transcription is prone to mistakes since AI can’t identify individual voices or understand the context of a meeting.
Here’s why we recommend hiring a professional conference call transcription service provider:
- Transcribing is not for everyone. It’s a laborious and time-intensive task that banks on extreme attentiveness for the best results. Unless you are an experienced transcriptionist, you will complete a call transcription much slower than experts in the field. For every 1 hour of audio it will take you 10 hours to transcribe it on your own.
- Transcribing calls on your own robs you of time you could otherwise spend taking care of the crucial aspects of your business. We believe busy professionals like you should focus on what you do best—leave the transcription duties to us.
