Session 2

Going green profitably

Mason Farmani, Managing Partner of Barkley Court Reporters, presented strategies for being “green,” but also profitable.

For example, the traditional way of preparing a transcript involves a lot of steps, like printing and binding, that use a lot of supplies and energy and take a lot of time to complete. Mason showed a video demonstration to contrast that with using RB8 to prepare a PDF transcript and using RB Web to publish it online, saving time and money.
Afterwards, Yong Lee showcased new RB Web strategies that increase efficiency and cost savings.
