Savannah, GA, United States, 2007/04/17 - Evoca enables journalists, writers, researchers and business people to use any telephone or computer to collaborate with colleagues, interviewees or customers and share the recordings and transcriptions online.
Business authors find that Evoca’s voice-to-Web recording and transcription services are essential to meeting their publishing deadlines. Evoca makes it easy to record interviews using any phone or computer and then conveniently purchase transcriptions online. Christopher Gergen and Gregg Vanourek, co-authors of Life Entrepreneurs (forthcoming from Jossey-Bass) and founding partners, New Mountain Ventures, are enthusiastic users of Evoca services.
“We use Evoca to record comprehensive phone interviews that we’ve been conducting as research for the book we are writing. Then, we started using their transcription service as well to get these interviews documented for future reference. The service has been easy to use and extremely helpful to us in capturing and mining the data we need from these important conversations,” says Gergen.
Co-author and partner Vanourek explains further that “Evoca has turned out to be an important tool in our book research and writing and, now that we’ve been using it for months, it’s hard to imagine what we would do without it. What a great idea for bringing the power of voice and communication into the digital age. We commend Evoca for a great idea turned into a terrific product with all sorts of possibilities and promise.”
Murem Sharpe, CEO and co-founder of Evoca, describes the range of users of Evoca’s recording and transcription services as “everyone from journalists in the field reporting fast-breaking news to sales teams sharing weekly conference calls to oral historians capturing spoken word from famous newsmakers of the past.”
Anyone can join Evoca as a free member to create recordings by phone or with a PC mic and also upload existing recordings. Transcriptions for any recording are ordered online and emailed to the Evoca member.
