What Exactly is CallRevu?
CallRevu is a call center headquartered in Timonium, Maryland which serves the automotive industry by offering call tracking, transcription, real-time alerts, and CRM Integration. If you have ever called your car dealer to ask a question, there will be a recording stating that this call may be recorded.
These recorded calls will be transcribed and then reviewed for QA (Quality Assurance), training purposes or even to examine from a customer service standpoint. Clients are able to review these transcribed calls in real-time on their PC, laptop or mobile devices.
What Types of Jobs Are Available?
While there other jobs available, the transcriptionist position is the one that will be the working-at-home (WAH) position. There seem to be several agents working at home, who are enjoying this job both full-time and part-time.
What Are the Hours at CallRevu?
After training, CallRevu likes to see most of the agents working from 9 am to noon EST. You really you can work full-time or part-time with calls being transcribed after training 24/7. In the beginning, the hours will be from 9 am to 9 pm EST until after certification. Most everyone is encouraged to work between these hours, but because transcribing does take place 24/7, it is possible to work later as well.
What Skills/Special Training Do You Need?
Must have a computer or laptop, high speed Internet connection and VOIP headset (purchase online or at any retail electronics/computer store). Must have a good command of English language and an interest in automobiles. You will be logging into their web site and listening to the recorded call there. You will be expected to be fast, efficient, accurate as well as possess good grammar skills and spelling.
Transcription experience is a plus.
