Another happy client!

“We were very pleased with the service provided by Business Friend. Responses were quick and friendly and transcripts were completed promptly. Our interviews were completed in a community setting, sometimes with significant amounts of background noise, and we really appreciated the patience and thoroughness of the transcribing team. The practice of double checking the transcripts also meant they are very accurate and detailed. Thanks and looking forward to doing business again in the near future.”
