2011 2nd Quarter Update

Appeals preparation has been and still is one of our key focus points in our quest to be the service provider of choice in the legal and human resources department.

Due to continuous growth in the appeals department we’ve had to appoint a new staff member to ensure effective and timeous delivery of appeals.

Welcome Ray…

Fantastic growth in the typing and transcription department saw the appointment of Tina to assist with a range of tasks ranging from streaming audio to our pool of typists to final proof reading of transcripts. It’s good to have you back Tina.

As a result of our recordings being mainly digital and the resources that were put in place to streamline this we are happy to announce our new ftp server enabling you to upload your audio file to. This exciting new service will assist with ensuring faster service and minimizing transport costs.

Please go to ftp://veritegauteng.dyndns.org:44444 to upload a file.

On the minute-taking side we now have a “same day” option whereby we can supply the minutes within a 3 hour period. Feel free to contact our offices to enquire about this new offering.

Pierre from our Pretoria office had to visit Durban again for the recording of disciplinary hearings. At this rate the possibility of opening a branch in KZN is becoming a priority.

We hope you had a wonderful Easter with your families and that everyone arrived home safely.

2011

2011 is off with a zing…  Our fledgling branch in Gauteng hosted its first  event with a conference for the International Red Cross Society in Boksburg. All went smoothly and students were employed for the 2 days to assist with the proceedings. Thabisa had to be imported from Cape Town to assist with hearings and at the same time  train our new employee Lara. Lara will assist Pierre and manage the admin -  the office is already undergoing a needed face lift! Welcome Lara…

Meanwhile Iris and her team are run off their feet in the Cape. Implementing the latest digital recording and transcription technology has been top priority and now running smoothly.    The appeals division continues at an exciting rate with a substantial number  of appeals completed and lodged with the supreme court of appeal and the constitutional court. Remember Milli - our supa-dupa Appeals head is always here to assist and advise.  Some hugely contentious and drama filled tribunals and arbitrations have certainly got 2011 off to just the kind of dream start we all wish for.  We continue to service clients for hearings as far afield as Durban – Vredenburg – George.

Our Eastern Cape offices are still to feel the pressures of the start of 2011 and we certainly hope that clients will start making use of the up-to-date technology we offer countrywide.
