The Benefits of Property and Surveying Transcription​

OutSec provides a dedicated transcription service. The advantage of outsourced typing is that it will free up time and is a less expensive option than in-house typing. Dictation is a highly valuable tool for the busy surveyor. Taking notes by hand is slow, time-consuming, and can introduce unintended errors. But at the end of the day, a voice note is still a note. 

Combine it with pre-formatted personalised reports and it is your sales product. Outsec provides dedicated typists that are familiar with your dictation style and have knowledge of the industry. They will re-interpret it to the format required and can often have it returned to you before you have even finished your site visit!

OutSec also produces completed work back to clients using the following:

  • Quest
  • RICS Proforms (iSURV)
  • Val-Ex
  • Word and Excel templates (both RICS and client constructed)

Individuals, small, medium or large businesses can use OutSec, meaning total flexibility on a pay-as-you-go basis.
