In today’s world increasingly the surveying and property industries work independently no longer needing ‘offices’.  In fact the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) suggests that 80% of its members are firms made up by less than five chartered surveyors, more frequently as a one person operation (sole practitioner).

Increasingly it is more economical for a surveyor to outsource their dictation work to a transcription service.  By simply downloading the OutSec app to your iPhone or Android or using a digital recorder, sound files are uploaded to FileManager, transcribed into a case management system, third party surveying software or your individual templates, whichever is appropriate to your practice.   Upon completion simply print-out and send to your client.  No hourly wages, taxes, insurance and other necessary expensive employee costs; purely a pay-as-you-go service providing total flexibility with no contracts or monthly fees.  In addition you have the peace of mind that your transcription work will be done when you need it; seven days a week with no sick days or holidays to cause a delay.

A win-win situation – as an example if needed a report can even be uploaded direct to OutSec on arrival on-site and returned, ready for print-out and dispatch at the end of the property inspection!  Deadlines are always met when using the OutSec professional solution for your typing needs!
