Scribe™ On Your Android

May 22, 2012 Leave a comment

Closely following the release of Scribe™ for iPhone users, we can now confirm that Scribe™ is officially available for those of you on Android!

Scribe™ is immediately available for both free and paid users on Android – soon to be available to free users with iPhone devices too.

As before, the Scribe™ product that is currently available for purchase is Get The Gist™ – which transcribes the first 10 seconds of your voicemails, so you can read and ‘get the gist’ of the message before you listen, saving you time and promoting convenience. Get The Gist™ is priced at £1.49 for paid users (those of you with a subscription), and £1.99 for free users. Remember, if you exceed your message allowance (up to 50 messages) or exceed the month time-span of the product, you will need to purchase Get The Gist™ again to continue having your messages transcribed.

Enjoy, guys!

Get The Gist™

May 10, 2012 9 comments

HulloMail promotes convenience. What with the sending, receiving and sharing of your voicemails being an instant process, would it be possible to make our app even better? After hearing the feedback from our loyal consumers, we came up with a solution to make the receiving and checking of voicemails an even simpler process. This is an exciting moment for us all, as we can now proudly introduce our new and long-anticipated transcription feature, Scribe™ !

ImageScribe™ is HulloMail’s new transcription service, which has a fun and interesting product under its name –  Get The Gist™, which transcribes the first 10 seconds of your voicemails, using only machines (yes no humans), to give you the gist of what the message is about, before you’ve even listened to it. Ten seconds may not sound like a lot, however it only takes a few words to express a message, so Get The Gist™ has you perfectly covered. Picture how useful this will be where it’s inconvenient to pick up the phone, have a glance at your received message and … get the gist of it! Simple.

Available only to subscribers, Scribe – Get The Gist™ can be purchased via the in-app store for £1.49 for up to 50 messages, over 30 days. That’s $1.99 in the US and €1.59 in Ireland. As with other transcription services, Scribe™ aims for the most accurate transcriptions possible, however external factors have an influence and may affect the transcription of messages – a bad phone line for example.

Enjoy the new feature! It’s going to completely change how you experience your voicemail service, in a totally awesome way.

HulloMail for your business

January 4, 2012 Leave a comment

Throughout these last few weeks, there has been emphasis placed on how HulloMail benefits you on an individual level. While this is important (and also very true), HulloMail of course is not strictly limited to personal use. Businesses have found HulloMail to be incredibly efficient when it comes to flowing and uninterrupted voice communications.

The opening quote up there comes from Anna Smee, the director of Hundred. Within the Hundred consultation group, communication heavily relies on the use of smartphones, in order to respond to clients quickly. This is why the ability to receive important messages that would otherwise be lost or delayed when data connection is low or non-existent, is crucial. When it comes to the benefits of using HulloMail within their business, Smee comments: “We can now respond to our customers and our colleagues much more rapidly, and crucially more reliably. We are no longer at the mercy of the mobile phone networks’ coverage and have improved capacity to deliver even greater customer service.”

The second case study, which can also be found here on our website, involves a business that relies on similar requirements. Call-handling is a situation that can quickly become complicated when communications become interrupted – the team at A Suit That Fits found that HulloMail ensured that all customer enquiries were received and resolved immediately, as the HulloMail service is used to take calls where the Customer Service team are unable to get to the phone. Warren Bennett has expressed his satisfaction with: “It has become an integral element of our customer service strategy, and we rely on it daily to help us deliver the very best service to our customers. Using HulloMail has increased productivity of our Customer Service team as they are able to prioritise calls effectively.”

You don’t have to be a specific type of business to reap the advantages of the HulloMail service. You don’t have to be a specific type of person either, that’s the beauty of HulloMail’s dynamism.

This is science, people …

December 19, 2011 Leave a comment

HulloMail puts the ‘voice’ in voice mail. That’s just scientific fact.

Not only this, but the way in which we put the ‘voice’ in voicemail ultimately means a more accessible service for everyone overall. Better than that of any other operator. That’s right, I said it. I went there.

This is especially true of the Hullo feature – it’s the ideal in instant voice messaging tools [exclusive to us] that you can use to contact people without having to suffer an entire phone call. At this point you’ve probably grabbed your computer monitor and exclaimed, “But as a HulloMail user, I already know about this feature. We all know about it. Why are you mentioning it again? Who do you think you are?? Was that the doorbell?? WHO AM I??”

The reason I bring up this well-known feature again is to ensure that you are all getting the most out of it as is humanly possible. It’s a key feature within the HulloMail phone app, and has an incredible amount of possible uses and benefits. We just want you to have the best of the service!

Our still-running competition, as you know, encourages you all to use the Hullo feature. Judging by the entries we have received so far, it isn’t hard to see that Hullos are extremely fun to record, a dynamic and versatile message medium and much faster than composing a text message. It is in this light that we encourage you all to make the most of Hullos – perhaps begin by sending us your entry to the competition? This iPad 2 WiFi isn’t going to win itself [it would be a conflict of interest].
