A growing number of businesses are holding staff meetings more frequently, even on weekends, depending on the geographic location and the time of year. Winter is commonly when the bulk of meetings are held compared with other seasons.

Have you ever thought about transcribing the meetings? It can offer a number of benefits for your business if you hold regular meetings. Here are the most important benefits of transcribing meetings:

  • Accurate Records of the Meeting. It’s better than recording only the minutes of the meetings. The details can help to analyze the key decisions and filter the main points.

  • Derive Actionable Data. When you simply record a meeting, it can be difficult to figure out the actual conversation among the recorded noise and interruptions. In this case, you can miss the vital stats. Getting your meeting transcribed can help you extract the actionable data from the recorded meeting.

  • It Saves Time. When you have transcribed your meetings, you don’t need an employee spend their precious time in trying to analyze the recordings. You can receive the transcribed meeting details in your desired format within your stipulated time.

It further adds that cities, where meetings are concentrated, include New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and London. West coast locations have about 1.5 times more meetings than the East Coast region. The most widely used facilities for business meetings are conference rooms that accommodate technology used for meeting transcription. About a quarter of meetings involve at least one mobile video user on a conference call.

Your company can save plenty of money by replacing travel with video, online virtual meetings or teleconferencing. At the same time, you will be helping the environment by reducing your carbon footprint with less travel and paper usage. It will allow you to impress clients that you are contributing to a more eco-friendly business strategy. Emailing a transcription of the meeting to members who could not participate helps keep the entire team on the same page.

Trade Shows and Seminars
Many businesses understand the value of trade shows where presenting your brand can deliver your message to an attentive audience. Seminars and webinars are useful strategies for either internal or external business use. Each of these once high-cost events can now be conducted at a much lower cost on a virtual instead of a physical level while also using meeting transcription services to produce exclusive web content.

Benefits of Video Meetings
Some of the best reasons to hold video meetings instead of physical meetings are that they save time and money while creating a complete archive of your conference that can be used for future reference. A video is much more engaging than reading a text and gives viewers more of a sense they are part of the experience. Transcribing the video adds even more value to preserving the event, as the text can be used for multiple purposes, such as training or evaluating how effective your business communication is.
