What are the benefits of DTFL’s digital transcription service?

Increase productivity and profits.  The benefits of outsourcing your dictation to DTFL’s legal digital transcription service will do just that.  DTFL will increase your productivity and increase your profits.

The main benefits of outsourcing your legal dictation are:

  • All digital dictation received by 1.00pm guaranteed completed and returned the same day.  We aim to get work received after that time back to you but it is not guaranteed.
  • Increase the number of fee earners without needing to increase the number of secretaries.
  • Free up your secretaries’ time to help with more administration and fee-earning work.
  • Avoid the need to continually train temporary staff – once we have your templates no training is required.
  • Eliminate the cost of temps/agency fees.
  • Reduce your dependency on pool legal audio typists and/or floats.
  • Cut the costs of staff turnover.
  • Only pay for the work you send – no fixed costs or retainers during quiet periods.
  • No holiday/sick pay.
  • Reduce the cost of software licences – the software is our responsibility.
  • No monthly or minimum fees and no contract – send in dictation as and when you need to.

Outsource typing -v- fee earners doing their own typing?

Did you know that half an hour of dictation takes an experienced legal typist up to two hours to type and proofread.  This does depend upon the clarity of the audio.
Increase productivity and profits and use a digital handset
Do you have a fee earner who spends two hours a day typing their own emails and documents?  If the answer is yes, then you need to increase productivity and profits.

Firstly, the fee earner would not be able to type as quickly as an experienced typist so would not produce as many documents.  Secondly, that fee earner is losing out on one and a half hours in chargeable time a day – losing productivity and profits.

Imagine what that adds up to over a year.  The more fee earners are typing their own documents and emails, the more productivity and profit the practice is losing.

As experienced legal typists, the Digital Transcription for Lawyers’ team understand the terminology and the layout of legal documents, for example Practice Direction documents.

The team also have advanced word processing skills.  These include index and tables, footnotes, cross-references, styles and automatic paragraph numbering – essential for a legal digital transcription service.

Some of our Reviews

“DTFL has been a revelation. The standard of their typing and the speed of their response has changed the way that chambers can function. We would now be lost without them. All members of chambers that use the facility have been similarly stunned. We could not recommend the service more sincerely.”
“I am delighted to provide this testimonial for Annabel and her team, who are always friendly and professional.  I have 25 years experience as a social worker and developed my role as an Independent Social Worker five years ago.  After experiencing an unreliable virtual transcription agency, 18 months ago I found DTFL who consistently provide a secure and reliable service.  Their expert secretarial skills have enhanced my reports and the time saved assists in my efforts to achieve a work/life balance.  I recommend their service without hesitation.”
“Life in the office is fast and hard.  We could not meet the needs of our clients without the services of DTFL who are always there whether it be to cope with a crisis quickly or deal with the daily deluge of correspondence.”
“Annabel and her team at DTFL give us great flexibility of secretarial resource and always provide a speedy, accurate and efficient response to our requirements; they are an indispensible part of our team enabling us to deliver with their help the rapid and professional service required by our commercial clients.”
“We have outsourced all our typing to DTFL since 2005 and have never looked back.  The service is efficient and reliable.  The typing is accurate.  Cannot recommend highly enough.”
“The service from Annabel and her team is simply excellent.  I have been using this service for the past 5 years, for a variety of court and tribunal documents, statements, attendance notes and when I am really stretched strings of emails.  The typing comes back very quickly, any corrections are down to me moving away from the microphone and are easily identified.  I really wouldn’t be without her service.”
“I have worked with Annabel and the team at DTFL for many years.  The service is professional but personal.  Annabel takes great pride in her business and the service that she provides.  The work is of a very high quality.  The typing is very accurate which is impressive as the turnaround time from sending the sound files for typing to the finished product is very fast indeed.  I would not hesitate to recommend DTFL as an outsourcing service to lawyers as a replacement for or as a supplement to an inhouse typing team.”
“We have been using DTFL for well over a year now. We have found DTFL, and in particular Annabel, to be exceptional. Their service is excellent both in accuracy and speed. Many of our documents are lengthy and having such accurate transcription of our dictation makes our lives easier and our client service better. I cannot recommend Annabel and DTFL highly enough.”
“We have been using DTFL for over eight years now.  They have reduced the need for in-house secretaries considerably, at a fraction of the cost.  With a one hour turn around, accurate transcription and an “as and when we need service”, we have not looked back.  We are happy to recommend them.”
“Finding DTFL has revolutionised my work.  Access to such a reliable, efficient and cost effective transcription service has significantly reduced the pressure on my time.  I have come to rely on this service as I am confident that work will be completed accurately and quickly, which is crucial as I have tight court deadlines to meet.”
“Very good firm and excellent to deal with!”
“I have been so impressed with the professionalism and speed that DTFL offer.  I have worked with a number of digital dictation services over time, but none has really been able to deliver what they promise.  DTFL really do what they say they do.  My clients are really impressed with how quickly their work is turned around.  I am amazed at how much time this service saves me.  In a world when we are all used to doing at least some of our own typing it comes as a surprise when you see it done quickly, efficiently and accurately.  A fantastic service – what more could anyone want?”
“I am pleased to say I have used DTFL since its beginning and have nothing but praise for the speed of turnaround of work and the layout as well as total professionalism.”
“Annabel and her Team provide a flawless service. The work is meticulously accurate and beautifully formatted and comes back straight away. I cannot recommend DTFL highly enough nor is it possible to imagine any way in which their service could be improved upon.”
“We have worked with Digital Transcription for Lawyers for approximately 10 years and we have always found them very personable, helpful and above all efficient with an ability to turn work around accurately and on time!”
“Annabel and DTFL have regularly provided an excellent service to me and my colleagues both in my present business and in my former professional positions.  I have no hesitation in recommending her organisation.”
