Customer Spotlight

Instapanel

Instapanel is a market research firm built around delivering lightning-fast insights to agencies and brands.

“Using the Rev API to transcribe our user interviews saves us hours of time on every project” says CEO David Kahn. Projects are turned around quickly: Instapanel's 1-6 minute videos are returned in just a few hours, and the API integration means transcript orders are automatically placed and received when new videos are uploaded.

“With automated transcription, the quality just isn’t there.” Rev’s human workforce produces the accurate work required by Instapanel’s clients to derive insights from the videos.
