Technology has come a long way in the last couple decades in our field, and it plays an integral role in my everyday operations of reporting. I embrace state-of-the-art technology to help me to provide the best services to the end client as I can.
On any given assignment I can provide realtime services via the client's laptop wirelessly, streaming over the Internet, on one of my loaner iPads or to the client's iPad via the iCVNet app.
Dropbox is an invaluable tool used to remotely edit and proofread each job, therefore speeding up the turnaround time.
All exhibits are scanned either on the job using a Fujitsu portable scanner or in the office on a Ricoh high-speed scanner/printer before going out the door to the reporting firm via UPS/FedEx. This process helps the scopist in editing/indexing and also ensures that in case something happens during shipping, a backup copy can be used to produce a record.
