Ten years on, and still going strong…Limpopo Provincial Legislature gain further workflow efficiencies from Powerhouse Dictation via Winscribe.
The Limpopo Provincial Legislature (LPL) is the primary legislative body of Limpopo, located in South Africa. The governing body provide several official documents and analysis reports for the South African government and population, along with representing communities and businesses with legal matters.
In early 2005 LPL approached Powerhouse Dictation for guidance on a Hansard Recording solution incorporating workflow functionality. Powerhouse Dictation suggested Winscribe as the best solution for the governing body’s requirements and after numerous meetings and presentation, the rollout was implemented.
After the first week of using the solution, LPL users quickly experienced the efficiencies in workflow – with users being able to locate all Hansard recordings and produced the required documents, speeding up their processes. The Hansard team enjoyed the ability to segment and distribute legislature recordings evenly among the available transcriptionists. This ensured timeous completion of transcripts of the sessions held in the legislature. LPL rolled out Winscribe, upgrading software assurance and software versions, year on year for the last 10 years.
Doron Mansur, Director at Powerhouse comments “providing our clients with the best solution for their requirements and budget, is a key focus point at Powerhouse Dictation. Our long standing relationship with Winscribe continues to prosper, allowing our clients to benefit from our combined expertise. LPL have seen efficiencies year on year for the last 10 years, so I am excited to see how Winscribe can assist moving forward.
Joe DiCarlo, Winscribe Channel Relationship Manager says “supporting clients with lasting benefits is all we want to do! It is great to see what LPL have achieved over the years, and even more rewarding knowing they would like to investigate further options. It is a pleasure to have worked closely with Doron and the Powerhouse team for so many years, and consider them as part of our Winscribe family.
