How Busy Are We?
33.33% of our jobs went forward
66.67% were cancelled or rescheduled
This information feeds directly from live data from our actual scheduling calendar and is calculated automatically for the previous day's jobs. Come back tomorrow to see what went on today!
If you are in the court reporting industry and you've noticed certain trends lately -- especially a lot of cancellations -- you probably care. If you're a competitor court reporting agency, you probably care too.
Why Would I Publish This Information?
There has been a lot of talk recently (on other blogs and forums) about the economic slow down adversely affecting our industry. I think talk is cheap and have decided to release some actual percentages of how many of our jobs go forward versus get cancelled. I am not going to give out specific numbers as related to volume. I'm crazy but not that crazy.
Additionally, I am taking this opportunity to ask my fellow agency owners to release their percentages as well so the industry as a whole can get a clearer snapshot of what's going on. (I'm not holding my breath, however.)
