How to Select the Right Closed Captioning Vendor [Free Guide]


At the end of each year, we distribute our annual Holiday Survey to learn how 3Play Media customers view their experiences with us.

Customer happiness is a top priority, and our survey helps us better understand our customers’ needs and how we compare with other media accessibility vendors.

Here are the top four reasons why thousands of 3Play Media customers love and trust us as their media accessibility partner, year after year.

The reliability and peace of mind

With unmatched pricing, unique features, fast turnaround times, excellent customer support, and high-quality files, 3Play provides customers with reliable services and peace of mind.

When asked what their favorite thing about 3Play was, many customers couldn’t pick just one aspect.

3Play has everything. I have scoped so many other transcription services over the years of my career and will ALWAYS convince my company to remain with 3Play. Accurate and has every feature needed and quick options which are great for a fast-paced industry like mine. 3Play Media customer

In this year’s Holiday Survey, many customers highlighted reliability across our business. When asked what their favorite thing about 3Play was, one customer said, “Reliability. You deliver as promised when promised.”

Multiple customers noted our adherence to deadlines and turnaround times. “We usually have a lot of last-minute projects and 3Play Media is always available, able to return our files on or before the deadline,” one customer said. “3Play Media is very quick and responsive,” another noted. “Oftentimes transcripts and other files are returned faster than expected.”

3Play is a unique vendor when it comes to turnaround times. Many vendors don’t give their customers an option to choose a turnaround time, whereas 3Play Media customers can select a deadline. Some vendors also advertise fast turnaround times, but when you read the fine print, it depends on the file size.

We offer a range of turnaround options to best fit your project timeline. Our fastest turnaround is 2-hours, one of the fastest in the industry. We also offer an extended option at a discounted price for projects that don’t need a quick turnaround.

Another factor that makes 3Play Media’s turnarounds unique is that we guarantee our deadlines and have strict turnaround service level agreements (SLAs) to hold us accountable.
