The Benefits of Property and Surveying Transcription

OutSec provides a transcription service for property and surveying. The advantage of outsourced typing is that it frees up time, and is less expensive than in-house typing. For the busy surveyor, dictation is a very useful tool. Taking notes by hand is slow, time-consuming, and can be prone to errors. At the end of the day, a vocal note is still a note.

Combine it with pre-formatted personalised reports and it is your sales product. Outsec assigns you a typists who is familiar with your dictation style and has knowledge of the industry. They will re-interpret it to the required format, 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)

OutSec can be used by individuals, small, medium, and large businesses, giving you complete flexibility on a pay-as-you-go basis.
