Automating Note-Taking and Boosting Engagement
The startup company offers a software add-on to Zoom’s existing platform. Users can simply invite the program as they would any other meeting participant by providing it with the Zoom link. The software will then join into the conference as another attendee.
Once the software designed by the startup business joins the call, users are offered a variety of helpful features. The software is capable of recording both video and audio from the call (individual participants may adjust their personal privacy settings to opt out of recordings). In addition to recording the data and storing it for reference later, the program also creates a real-time transcript of the conversation, allowing users to edit and highlight important parts of the script while the call is underway. Furthermore, the software provides insights from calls, such as the breakdown of time each user spent talking.
Riding the Zoom Boom
As the work-from-home trend extends further into 2021, Zoom’s telecommunications business has experienced massive growth. The company reported Q4 revenues of $882.5 million, up from the $188.25 million reported a year prior. Scribe’s software finds a niche role in the Zoom platform, riding along with the teleconference company’s success in the massive global video conference market, which is expected to reach $9.55 billion by 2024.
