Home office, flex-working, or working remotely: it is a trend that is taking many industries by storm and becoming applicable to more and more job situations. It is easy to find an internet connection in almost any corner of the world, meaning the need for expensive business trips becomes nearly obsolete. Colleagues can work across borders with little to no effort; it allows for flexible working hours; and therefore also allows people to easily combine their work with, for example, family life.
While a home office sounds pretty ideal, coordinating the communication within teams as well as company-wide could be tricky. Meetings and conferences may be held online, but who is taking notes? How does one keep a record of important phone calls? How does one spread information or training content to those that cannot be present in a video call at a particular time?
At Amberscript we build AI engines that enable users to automatically transcribe audio and video files to text files. Our software helps businesses and individuals to save time, and have an accurate written record of their verbal communication, whether that takes place in person or online. Here are four examples of how our technology can improve communication within your remote teams.
1. Taking meeting notes efficiently – AI is here to help!
Do you have 5 online meetings a day and no time to take notes? How can you easily get back to what was discussed in one of these meetings and retrieve valuable information?
Our suggestion is to record at least the important meetings and quickly transcribe it using an automatic transcription software. If you use software like Amberscript, the information will be available in text format and it can easily be stored.
Another advantage is that, by using our online Editor, you can search through the text, highlight, edit it, and quickly make a summary of the meeting to be shared with your colleagues.
The alternative is using templates for meeting notes but if you can use technology to save you time and have more accurate records of your discussions, then why not?

2. Keeping track of information exchanged in phone calls
While working remotely, you will probably need to make a lot more phone calls, to talk to your boss, a supervisor or a colleague. You might need to explain new working processes or onboard a new colleague. Everything that is said in these calls may be very important and difficult to remember as the conversation continues. If you record the phone call, you can upload the recording to Amberscript and get a textual transcript. In this way, you will not miss out on any important information.
Do not forget to get consent from the person on the other side of the line to record it!

Saves time writing up long and detailed guides and manuals.

How Amberscript can help to keep your meeting notes
As we already mentioned above, one of the best ways to keep your meeting notes is by transcribing them. On the other hand, transcribing only 1-hour of audio can take up to 5-6 hours to manually transcribe.
What is a transcript?
A transcript is a word-for-word written record of what was said during a conference or consultation, and it’s used for various purposes. It may be requested for those with a hearing impairment, who don’t speak the language being spoken, or for those unable to attend the meeting in person. In addition, transcripts help keep track of who said what and at what time. Transcribing your meetings is extremely beneficial as you can easily keep all of the information.
