Brown & Meyers is First Woman-owned Transcription Firm in New England to Receive WBENC Certification
Certification raises Maine-based firm's stature among corporations and government agencies looking to hire woman-owned businesses
PORTLAND, Maine – Brown & Meyers, a Portland, Maine-based company providing transcription, document management and court reporting services nationwide, has achieved certification from the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
# # #
The WBENC certification of Brown & Meyers as a woman-owned business means the firm will now be recognized more prominently among the growing number of corporations and government agencies with supplier/vendor diversity programs. The WBENC is the leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America's corporations.
Brown & Meyers, owned by Kate Meyers, is the only firm of its kind throughout New England to earn WBENC certification. The company is the region’s leading provider of high quality transcription, document management and court reporting services, and is known for offering leading-edge technologies.
“We pursued this important certification to become a resource for large companies and governmental set-asides for women-owned vendor companies and other ‘disadvantaged’ business groups,” said Meyers, a Scarborough resident. “Many organizations receive government subsidies when they meet diversity quotas, and now we can offer them an option for hiring a woman-owned firm for the services we offer.”
Brown & Meyers’ services include transcriptions, paper-to-electronic media scanning and imaging, online content and document management, file storage, court reporting, videotaping and other solutions related to recordkeeping and compliance. The firm serves medical groups, legal entities, insurance companies and other organizations in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and across the nation.
WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 US companies and government agencies that rely on the WBENC certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs. To become a certified vendor, Brown & Meyers completed a rigorous application process to prove its 51 percent woman-owned status. WBENC certification, one of the most widely respected certifications in the nation, is an important marketing tool for expanding a minority company's visibility among decision makers in corporate supply chain diversity and procurement.
Brown & Meyers, located at 71 Pleasant Hill Road in Scarborough, Maine, was founded in 1994 and has since grown into New England’s leading provider of high quality transcription, document management and court reporting services. The firm has continuously invested in leading-edge technologies and a talented staff to deliver the region’s most responsive service. In 2007, Brown & Meyers launched its advanced online content and document management services by becoming an exclusive, certified reseller of CompuTh!nk® software and Web-based integrated document management/e-mail archival solutions.
