Philips offers perfectly tailored solutions for professionals in the construction industry.
Efficiency and accuracy are more important here than in any other sector. Therefore, a well-functioning workflow from the spoken word to written text can incrementally improve customer relationships, documentation and reporting.
Project team members and construction project assessors in particular, are required to document the construction progress and possible deficiencies in detail. The construction diaries, meeting minutes as well as the appointment defect awarding and handover reports are usually composed during inspection rounds of the construction site. The recorded information then has to be submitted to the office to be transcribed. Once the reports are finished, they have to be forwarded to all involved parties in writing.
"The Philips dictation recorder app in combination with SpeechLive offers a very efficient solution. When I get back to the office in the evening, the text that I dictated before leaving the site is already there on my desk, ready to be signed."
Architect and Property Manager, Paris, France
Reports on the go made easy
Without a professional solution, this process is very time-consuming. With the mobile smartphone dictation solution from Philips, this becomes much simpler and effort is kept to a minimum. The Philips dictation recorder app in combination with the cloud-based solution SpeechLive turns smartphones into wireless digital dictation recorders.
Construction site inspectors can record information during their visit when still on site, or on the go and send the encrypted audio file together with image files directly to the office. There is no need to return to the office after a job or wait until the end of the shift to “deliver” the records to a transcriptionist. Recordings can be assigned priorities and automatically routed to the correct transcriptionists and assigned to the correct files. The back office receives the files directly in the transcription software and can create the text file or protocol immediately.
If there is no transcriptionist available, there is still the possibility to have your recordings typed up for you by the SpeechLive transcription service or via sophisticated speech recognition software. Finished documents are sent by email and can be accessed on the road. By cutting out a lot of the administrative work, turnaround times can be dramatically decreased, costs saved and clients made happier.
