(PRWEB) September 17, 2004
A new initiative designed to allow law firms to write off the cost of their old analogue tape machines, called ÂThe Tape ExchangeÂ, is set to enable hundreds of firms to take advantage of the benefits of digital dictation workflow software over the coming months.
Some law firms have been reluctant to move over to digital dictation workflow software when old equipment technically Âstill worksÂ and their budget pre-empts it. However, The Tape Exchange removes these barriers by offering to:
Â Pay Â£50 for every old fee earner tape machine or secretarial unit at your firm
Â Donate all the old equipment to charity for use in a developing country
Firms who have been missing out on the productivity gains made possible by the latest digital dictation workflow technology will now be able to take the opportunity of The Tape Exchange and move forward - maximizing their efficiency and reducing their overheads.
The Tape Exchange is an initiative run in conjunction with Charles ChristianÂs Legal Technology Insider web site and owned by BigHand Ltd, the market leader in digital dictation workflow technology. A law firm just has to register the number of old tape machines they currently have at the firm on the Insider website before 30 November 2004 to qualify.*
The Tape Exchange is hosted at http://www.tapeexchange.org
BigHandÂs Marketing Manager, Dan Speed commented:
"The Tape Exchange is about offering every law firm the chance to replace older analogue equipment with cutting edge digital dictation software, and please their accountants at the same time. I do not know of another legal software manufacturer who is offering to buy back the very equipment they replace. This allows a firm to reap the benefits of a proven software system that has been shown to save law firms thousands, while simultaneously improving productivity."
"A pleasing by-product is that BigHand has secured an agreement with the World Emergency Relief charity that means all this older analogue equipment will not be wasted and will be used in developing countries, subject to certain checks.Â
