- The leading crowd-as-a-platform transcription company from New Zealand has won the Export NZ Award for a Technology
Start Up, highlighting its growing footprint in the global markets.
TranscribeMe (http://transcribeme.com/), the leader in premium crowd-sourced transcription technology, has won the
award for Best Tech Start Up in its home country - New Zealand - from Export NZ's Cargo ExportNZ Auckland Awards 2013.
The award highlights TranscribeMe's trailblazing efforts in connecting, managing, and empowering a private crowd
together with technology to deliver highly accurate speech processing, at a larger scale.
Built on the premise that audio and video content should be accessible to people and enterprises, and that accessing
this content requires accurate and affordable speech-to-text processing (http://transcribeme.com/pricing), TranscribeMe
has fundamentally changed the audio processing market by offering a highly accurate and scalable hybrid solution, which
combines speech processing with crowd sourced transcribers connected on a global, private platform. This unique product
has made TranscribeMe a critical component of call center analysis, market research, online video search engine
optimization, and speech recognition engine tuning.
TranscribeMe's Chief Technology Officer, Victor Obolonkin, stated in a thank you speech at the Awards: "We are excited
to call New Zealand home to our global company, and proud that the product which was conceived and exported from here is
having an impact on people on every continent." TranscribeMe uses its proprietary technology to recruit, retain, incent
and manage over seven thousand on-demand workers around the world.
"With new partnerships in China and the USA, we are more than doubling our processing output this month alone," says VP
of Sales and Marketing, Bethanie Maples Krogstad. "Our successes in 2013 highlight the growing need for
crowd-as-a-platform enterprises, which harness on-demand labor in a private and educated platform."
