TranscribeMe Named Best Tech Start-Up at ExportNZ Awards


- 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."
