Technical solution

We analyzed the customer's idea and offered the development of a complex solution for managing the team of transcribers and moderators. Using sound processing libraries, we developed a solution identifying the speaker by the voice timbres. It isolated sound waves and split an audio track into roles with timecodes for further transcribers processing. High priority was given to UI design with the ability to display a large amount of specific information, including audio tracks and waves. In order to provide better service and additional motivation for employees, we offered and developed a rating system that allows the best specialists receive more orders. We created and integrated into the product a full-fledged system for calculating employees' salaries and monitoring payments.
