The UK Data Service is a great source of advice when it comes to managing research data - they currently do not recommend automation for transcribing audio interviews because the software is not great at recognising lots of different voices.
It is common practice to use Excel and Reference Management Software to manage systematic reviews.
The EPPI-Centre have created specific software for systematic reviewing which individuals can subscribe to (the cost is not prohibitive).
