Why OutSec?

The UK’s Leading Online
Transcription Services Provider

Why OutSec?

Because we are the UK’s leading online transcription services provider, been in the business for nearly 20 years and are ISO27001 Certified with Cyber Security Accreditation.

Personal Attention in an Impersonal World

At OutSec, we firmly believe that clients should have direct access to their Account Manager. We do not believe in ‘telephone queues’. As a result, after you register an account, your dedicated Account Manager will give you with a direct phone line, SKYPE, and email contact details. In addition, you will also have instant access to FileManager OutSec’s tailor-made management system. This award-winning unique system will give you access to your personal account information, current and historic invoice trail, and a host of other data valuable in the analysis of our service.

Save Money & Time

Our service is based on a typist taking four times the length of an audio file to type up the transcript to polished perfection. This includes layout, edited grammar, where appropriate, and proofreading to ensure it meets the high standards for which we are known for. As an example, a 15-minute audio will take an hour to type up, which comes to £18 per hour at £1.20 for our standard service (excluding VAT). The benefits include but are not limited to providing:

  • a dedicated typing service by transcriptionists with a minimum of 7 years of experience
  • a constant pay-as-you-go service can meet deadlines whatever the volumes
  • a service that allocates you a specific lead and back-up typist who work with you to ensure excellent typing day-on-day 

The True Cost of an Employee

Have you ever worked out the true cost of in-house typing? You may be surprised as often an employee will cost double his or her salary. Expenses like as office space, computers, and recruitment are frequently underestimated. Outsourcing your typing needs can save you 30% on typing costs. That’s all there is to it.

Self-Awareness (10)

ISO27001 Certification/Cyber Security Accreditation

Are you willing to take a company’s word for it that it complies with regulatory requirements? Are you happy to just accept their word? The implication of outsourcing and non-compliance with GDPR is a huge risk. We suggest that anyone reading this website who is considering outsourcing their typing reads the following two articles:

The Importance of ISO27001 Certification.
The Importance of Cyber Security Accreditation.

OutSec is proud of its ISO27001 Certification and Cyber Security Accreditation, which show that we are fully compliant with all GDPR and security regulations. The proof is there for our clients and cannot be disputed. We recommend that companies always ensure their provider has both qualifications to ensure there is no breach of confidentiality in the future. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to email Murray Hart, OutSec’s IT Director, at murray.hart@outsec.co.uk.
