Press Release Summary: WinScribe teams up with Blackberry to offer lawyers digital dictation on the move.
Press Release Body: Lawyers are now able to tap into the benefits of digital dictation via their Blackberry with the launch of 'WinScribe Blackberry'. This new capability means lawyers can save time, improve data security, increase productivity and ultimately, improve business performance across the law firm.
WinScribe, a partner of Research in Motion (RIM), a Blackberry independent software vendor, recognised the need to connect the mobile workforce to core business applications such as internet, email and dictation. Rather than carrying around several devices, WinScribe's key objective was to make life easier for the mobile lawyer by combining the accessibility of all applications onto one device - the Blackberry.
This latest development means that WinScribe users will gain greater levels of workforce productivity, workflow management, increased flexibility, improved system manageability and reliability and better data security. Most importantly, with Blackberry's advanced security features legal firms can manage their WinScribe dictation more efficiently without putting sensitive information at risk.
Thring Townsend Lee & Pembertons a leading UK law firm participated in the worldwide WinScribe Beta program. "WinScribe has hit the mark with the Blackberry product. Rather than carrying around several devices, WinScribe's key objective was to make life easier for the mobile lawyer by combining the accessibility of all applications onto one device - the Blackberry" said Russell Mitchell of Thring Townsend Lee & Pembertons.
Philip Vian, CEO of WinScribe Europe explains, "Our strategic relationship with Research in Motion (RIM) has provided WinScribe with all the resources, support, and tools needed to develop our innovative BlackBerry product. This new development allows customers to dramatically improve their workflow management processes, by having unlimited access to all dictation information whenever they need it from the office or remotely. The added security features of the Blackberry also ensure complete confidentiality of client information.\"
Legal professionals around the world continue to embrace the BlackBerry platform for its ability to help them increase efficiency and deliver higher quality service to their clients,\" said Jeff McDowell, vice president, Global Alliances at Research In Motion. \"WinScribe is an excellent example of a value-added application for BlackBerry smartphones that enables greater convenience and productivity for legal professionals throughout the day.\"
