A dedicated 1300 number is used by any Worksorted participant to record an audio file (just like leaving a message on voicemail). The Worksorted team automatically received notification of the audio file and sets about transcribing the file note and entering the converted text into a file note against the particular client in your firm’s CRM. A copy of the original audio file that you left for Edith is also included so that your compliance record of client conversations is held on your client’s file. An extremely popular feature of Worksorted – Edith provides enormous value, especially for those holding late afternoon or evening appointments, and is billed out to users on a cost-per-minute user pay basis.
