Our Industry
A. How would you describe the challenges and opportunities that our industry faces (in the Court, Agency, and Deposition markets)?
B. What do you see as the challenges and opportunities?

Some attorneys are resistant to adopting new technologies and methods, preferring traditional stenographic methods they are familiar with. When speaking with clients, I take the opportunity to educate and highlight the benefits and reliability of digital court reporting in order to increase its acceptance.

Digital reporting training is faster than stenographic training and therefore a huge benefit to an industry facing a shortage of reporters. As an agency, this gives us the opportunity to train reporters ourselves and increase our workflow significantly.
