How the National Network Reporting Company Is Transforming the Future of Court Reporting

Court reporting is not one of those industries you think of as a technology leader. In fact, court reporting is not one of those industries most people outside of the legal profession ever think of. But the National Network Reporting Company (NNRC) is a game-changer both in the legal profession and beyond it.

This global court reporting association with members across the United States, Canada, England and Europe has transformed the litigation support and stenography field with a variety of innovations that have moved them at the forefront of their industry. Based in California, NNRC’s real home is on the web at nnrc.com. Their website serves as a legal and court reporting news resource complete with special member profile pages like this Cleveland court reporters page for Cady Reporting, a long-time member.

The national court reporters directory includes a number of ways clients can book services using the 24/7 mobile booking engine, a rarity within the industry. With so many attorneys and paralegals traveling between depositions and court appearances, the importance of being able to reserve videoconferences and meeting rooms using only a smartphone cannot be over-stated in today’s fast-paced business culture.

While most court reporting companies barely have a functioning website, if they have one at all, the NNRC directory allows for geographical index searches, bookings using a master scheduling form, and appointments via each member page. In addition, the NNRC site includes a variety of important legal resources from information on various areas of practice and how they impact the reporting profession to legal news by area and type.

The NNRC blog is also a great read for those looking for new information on legal news and other trends across a wide spectrum of regions and topics, from Bar Association news to decisions on various cases.

For members, the perks are many. To begin with, each member is granted exclusivity over their market. This means that all referrals or requests for services in a given region go to a single member automatically. Membership has its privileges as they say! One other perk is the online forum, a private conversation area exclusive to members where each participant can engage in discussions about trends and topics within their fields. The site’s “Partner of the Month” feature highlights a member each month with a thorough interview and a link to a special Member profile page.

This and many other forward-thinking approaches to the court reporting profession make NNRC the world’s leading directory of court reporters and the premier association of its kind.
