I recently used Take Note for transcribing a series of focus groups and would highly recommend them. The transcriptions were to a good quality and were turned around very quickly. The Take Note portal was very easy to navigate and it was clear when my transcriptions were ready. I particularly like the Quote Generator function, which makes it really easy to play around with functions and costs. I also found everyone at Take Note to be really helpful and quick to respond. I had an issue with video files being too large to upload to the portal. After contacting Take Note, someone helped me with compressing the file so it could be uploaded.

I work for a research company and Take Note supply us with transcribtions for: audio calls, online focus groups, face-to-face focus groups etc. They work very efficiently and I've always had great service from all the members of their team.

What a great service from end to end! The online portal to upload the files was simple and clear and the delivery time was really quick too.

Truth logo

I just wanted to extend a big thank you for the quality of work produced – please see below for some great feedback from one of my most senior colleagues here. Really high praise and makes me look good to have such great suppliers so THANK YOU! Please can you contact the transcriber and say how great these transcripts are. Not sure if they ever get thanks, probably only complaints, but these are really fabulous and hugely helpful in their richness. The transcriber has really captured the rhythm of language and so the spirit of the group, not just what they said. Excellent work. Like to give credit where it’s due.

Take Note are absolutely brilliant. Always seem to deliver quicker than they say they would. Good customer service too. I called them with a query and they were both friendly and helpful

Acacia avenue logo

Take Note have been my go to agency for transcription ever since I began working at Acacia Avenue. I've been offered free trials from various other transcription agencies, and I'm yet to experience a portal that's as user friendly and streamlined. Our contacts do a brilliant jobs of managing our requests too. Highly recommended.

College of york logo

I am undertaking a doctorate and I used Take Note for transcription of my interviews (8 in total - due to upload another 2 this week). The Take Note dashboard is very comprehensive compared to others that I have used, but most of all it is very user friendly and there is help on hand should you need it. The price is VERY reasonable - compared to other transcription services that I have used in the past. The quality of the manuscripts is excellent, and they are available for downloading in different formats. I have and will be using them again! I used Take Note again, for further interview transcriptions - again, they were efficient and provided an excellent service! And VERY reasonably priced too! I have recommended the service to a colleague who is also undertaking doctoral study - and she has also used the service! (and is very happy with Take Note!)

Myrtlefield logo

We have used Take Note over the past 3+ years, and they have produced over 1,000 hours worth of transcripts for us (over 10,000 A4 pages). Some of the recordings were difficult, and the content specialised. Over that time, the staff has proven to be professional, easy to work with and quick to adjust according to our specifications. Couldn't say enough good about them or rate them more highly. You won't be disappointed if you choose them for your transcription work.

Flamingo logo

The company I work for has been using Take Note for a number of years and in the 4 and a half years I've worked here, I have dealt with them on a regular basis. I can honestly say they have never let us down! Any time of day (or evening) I will receive a prompt response- with the answer always being 'of course we can help and meet your deadline.' The staff are so friendly in emails and on the phone and yet always professional- you know you're in capable hands.

Yorkshire sculpture

I have TakeNotes services on numerous occasions now and they have always done a wonderful job every time. It was on time, completed at a really high use-able, clear standard and the cutting down of the unnecessary parts of the transcript were really successful and saved a lot of my time. You can see that the person transcribing has a high level of understanding of the purpose of the transcription. Thanks so much

The research house logo

Take Note are our go-to company for all of our transcript needs for over 5 years now. Their transcripts are high quality and accurate. The portal to upload audio is very easy to use and so handy to login into to see the stage our transcripts are. We also use Take Note for Notetaking and their note takers arrive promptly, smartly dressed and ready to work. We have great feedback from our clients, and of course the TN team are lovely to work with too. Highly recommend.

I couldn't be happier with TakeNote - friendly efficient service, really reasonably priced, with excellent note takers who deliver accurate transcripts at seriously impressive speed (first thing the morning after a late evening of note taking).

Cfe research logo

Takenote offer a range of transcription services to suit differing needs. They are extremely responsive to queries and have an efficient online portal to upload recordings and download transcripts. I would highly recommend their services 🙂

Ppl insights logo

I contacted Takenote via the chat on the website. Lucy was really helpful and gave me quotes really quickly for a few different options. Once my client approved the costs the set up on the online portal was done in minutes where I then uploaded everything ready to be transcribed. Although I only paid for turnaround in 7 days I started receving completed transcriptions back the next day. The quality of them was great and the support via email and the chat was great, everyone was really friendly and helpful. I was also surprised at just how good the price was for 40 transcribed videos! I wouldn't go anywhere else after this.

Plum films logo

Take Note have been a great find! Their team was so helpful, responding very quickly - and the process of uploading files to their portal is simple, and clear. The transcriptions were very accurate … and these were supplied ahead of the 48 hours turnaround time too! So all round, I'd highly recommend them

Kantar logo

Service is fantastic, even though i quite often book VERY last minute they do everything they can to help me out. Transcripts are always good quality and note takers at f/w always do a great job. Would highly recommend

Polar insight logo

Take Note provide very high quality transcription. I've used them many times for both the 24 hour and 48 hour turnaround services. The transcripts have been returned earlier than expected and are always accurate. The portal is easy to use in terms of uploading audio files, and inviting colleagues/clients to read and download the transcripts. The staff are always quick to respond and very helpful whenever I've had queries. I'd recommend them to any market or social research agency who needs good quality transcripts, quickly.
