Professional Summaries & Reports

Expert Note-Taking & Summary Writing Services for Meetings & Events

The innovator of providing professional reporting and summary services in a wide spectrum of fields, Ubiqus offers five different levels of professional reports and summaries. We work from all audio and video formats and/or send a qualified writer to attend your event for on-site note-taking and improved document quality.

  • Our Abridged Transcript provides a clean version of a verbatim transcript, eliminating all unnecessary utterances that are common in speech.
  • The Exhaustive Report excludes anything that is not acceptable in standard written English.
  • Whatever may be justified in an oral presentation, but is superfluous in text, is omitted from our Revised Report for a more efficient expression of the concepts presented in your audio.
  • Our Standard Summary documents include only primary information, eliminating any secondary or tertiary information from your presentation.
  • The Executive Summary contains only the information at the heart of the speaker’s message, producing a streamlined minutes-type document.

  • Examples of Our Summaries & Reports

 

A ‘clean’ verbatim transcription. Ums, ahs, and verbal ticks are omitted. False starts and unnecessary repetitions are eliminated. Grammar is corrected. Documents are easily searchable with headings, table of contents, and indexing (optional). Usually 18 to 20 pages per hour of audio.

Abridged Transcript Example: 108 words

Taking up a question asked earlier about our CAPEX program, we just re-prioritized it and took $300 million out of $2.2 billion. We have taken some action in respect to 1999, as my statement and the directors’ report make quite clear. We have brought the expenditure back from the year 2000 onwards to a more normal level of about $400 million. That is just being prudent and sensible. If we see that conditions are better next year, and we believe they will be because indicators are good, there are many places where we could walk on site tomorrow because we own the properties that we want to develop.

Most comprehensive of the summaries. All of the information is included. Writers use vocabulary, grammar and punctuation to turn spoken language into a well-written document that reads like the speaker wrote it him/herself. Usually 12 to 15 pages per hour of audio.

Exhaustive Report Example: 90 words

We have re-prioritized our CAPEX program to take $300 million out of its budget of $2.2 billion as of 1999. Our statements have made it quite clear that we have brought the expenditure back from 2000 onwards to a more normal level of about $400 million per year, which is just being prudent and sensible. If we see that conditions are better next year, and we believe they will be, there are many places where we could walk on site tomorrow because we own the properties we want to develop.

Information unnecessary in written language is omitted. This level provides all of the information stated while offering the most concise text possible. Usually 8 to 10 pages per hour of audio.

Revised Report Example: 52 words

In re-prioritizing the CAPEX program, we have reduced its budget of $2.2 billion by $300 million. From 2000 onwards, it will have prudently returned to a more normal level of $400 million annually. This will allow us to quickly develop sites that we already own if conditions are more favorable next year.

Only the primary information is maintained. Secondary examples, complementary remarks, digressions, asides, etc. are omitted so the most pertinent message is disseminated. Usually 4 to 6 pages per hour of audio.

Standard Summary Example: 39 words

The $2.2 billion CAPEX program has been reduced by $300 million and will stabilize sensibly at $400 million annually from 2000. This will allow us to quickly develop sites that we already own if conditions are more favorable next year.

A succinct overview similar to meeting minutes. Executive Summaries recount the highlights of an event, listing the main facts and the opinions of the participants. Usually 1 to 2 pages per hour of audio.

Executive Report Example: 29 words

The $2.2 billion CAPEX program is down by $300 million and will stabilize at $400 million annually from 2000, potentially allowing for rapid development of our sites next year.

Give one of our service representatives the details of your event and he/she will advise you on the most suitable document for your needs.
