Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunal Service appoints Auscript

The Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service (NICTS) has newly appointed Auscript as its exclusive transcription provider. From 1 October 2018, Auscript will deliver its world-leading court transcription services for 60 courts in Northern Ireland.

Auscript’s Chief Operating Officer, Kate Gaske, said the company is looking forward to partnering with NICTS to expand the company’s services and locally based team in the UK—providing fast, secure access to the court record.

Since launching court transcription services across England and Wales in 2017, Auscript has quickly cemented its position in the UK’s court transcription market—combining local specialist teams with innovative workflow technologies to deliver transcripts – precisely, securely and on-time. Opening two UK offices and acquiring leading transcription companies, the company currently services the arbitration, deposition, criminal and civil court transcription markets as the preferred provider for the Ministry of Justice and exclusive provider for the Crown Court in the South East Region.

The NICTS appointment will see an expansion of the company’s specialty: hand-typed same day transcription. Same day transcripts will be produced at speed and at-scale, with guaranteed accuracy from quality audio recorded by For The Record’s digital technology already installed in the Northern Ireland courts.

To support the new contract, Auscript’s UK team is already growing with the recruitment of audio transcribers, court reporters, court monitors/loggers, client and technical support staff joining the company on this journey.

“Auscript’s record of success in the UK, and around the world, is possible because of our people. Our team is working collaboratively with NICTS to ensure easy ordering, quality transcripts and on-time delivery for the Northern Ireland Courts,” Ms Gaske said.

Trusted by courts, commissions, parliaments and tribunals for delivering unprecedented levels of speed and accuracy in Australia and the UK, Auscript is now one of the world’s leading court transcription and recording providers and is well-established to deliver its services to NICTS.
