Justice Systems Can Benefit From Legal Transcription No Matter Their Digital Progress

Digitization is taking over numerous industries to increase productivity of the staff and improve the quality of their job delivery. The justice system is no exception, where paper-based documents and procedures must go and let the digital progress in. Adoption of digitization increases the speed of delivery and decreases the cost regarding both public and private spending. The benefits are plenty. 

Digitized justice systems are addressing numerous challenges, such as overuse of paper, limited resources, transparency, scheduling, remote working, real-time collaboration, online dispute resolution, virtual courts and digital archiving. Unfortunately, it has some challenges, which are experienced in any field choosing the path of digitization, e.g., cyber security. 

Issues on cyber security block some progress as some countries are avoiding any risk of cyber-breach and do not employ any technology in their procedures. Despite the tremendous progress in connectivity, internet speed in some places is still insufficient for structural adoption of digital progress. 

Even if all the planets align for effective technical adoption of digital solutions, some cultural and infrastructural legacy may be a significant challenge to overcome. Therefore, the change of the old ways may require an overhaul of equipment and extensive training of the staff. Yet, these changes may not happen, because of high costs, continuity of operations, or just the overall notion that everything works just fine in the old ways. 

However, some progress is needed and welcome if delivered in an easy and robust way. 

One of such highly-beneficial examples is 100% accurate legal transcription service. In-house transcribers are expensive and limited in their capacity, therefore may not uptakte the workload and could be prone for mistake. Professional legal transcription services, as we offer at GoTranscript, may address this challenge with a fraction of a cost and a large number of highly professional transcribers who are always ready. 

To conclude, if not a high scale digitization effort, outsourcing for professional services may be a significant game changer in developing accurate, effective and affordable justice systems. 

Despite the societal impact, digitization and transcriptions help to reduce paperwork and paper use. Therefore, it adds up to a smaller environmental footprint and signifies business’s or institution’s efforts towards sustainability goals.
