It takes much longer to listen to a message than read it. And voicemail is usually outside of our typical workflow, making it hard to forward or reply to easily.” – Tech Crunch
Some of the Main Benefits of Converting Voicemail Messages to Text
Messages are Available Anytime
Voicemail transcription is particularly convenient for business owners and employees who are often in meetings or on the go and need to check their voicemail messages without having to listen to the entire message. With voicemail transcription, you can quickly tell which calls are urgent, which ones are just calls from solicitors or telemarketers, and everything in between.
Easier to Scan Your Voicemail
Forget about having to listen to long winded voicemail’s to find names, numbers and addresses, or accidentally deleting a message by pressing 0 instead of 9. Since the voicemail has been transcribed, it’s all written down for you. A visual interface also allows you to organize, delete and search all your voicemail’s in a way that would otherwise be impossible.
Search for Voicemails
Once your voicemails have been transcribed into text, they are searchable in your email application. Search on keywords in the message such as the callers name, topics, or numbers to find the voicemails you are looking for.
Access Voicemail via Multiple Devices
Voicemail transcriptions are accessible on any smartphones equipped with email capabilities, allowing you to read your voicemail’s anywhere— on the bus, in the airport, on a conference call, etc. You can also access the transcribed voicemail message on your desktop computer or laptop and reply to the caller via email, if that’s easier for you.
Press8 voicemail transcriptions are fully automated, using voice recognition technology, so no live agents are involved in transcribing voicemail messages. Since it is automated, you can be assured there is no one listening to your voicemail messages. Press8 can even send you texts voicemail’s if you prefer SMS to email.
