About Rev.com
Rev is a services marketplace that works with the top 10 percent of freelancers, and delivers services to businesses at half the price and twice the speed of traditional vendors. Rev’s first two services are audio transcription and document translation. Unlike offerings that require businesses to coordinate projects directly with freelancers, Rev vets the workers, manages the project, and guarantees quality. Rev also develops and supports its iOS app, the Rev Voice Recorder, a free audio recording app with one-click transcription services. Rev’s mission is to build the best place for freelancers to work. Rev is headquartered in San Francisco and is funded by Globespan Capital.
