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.

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.
