LONDON, UK (PRWEB) January 27, 2005
Pinsent Masons has decided to roll out the BigHand Digital Dictation system to all lawyers and secretaries, following the merger of Pinsents and Masons on 6 December 2004.
The decision to roll out the award-winning BigHand system sees Pinsent Masons become the largest digital dictation workflow site in the UK legal sector with 1250 users. Masons had previously used the nFlow system which will now be replaced by BigHand technology across the board.
Colin Smith, IT Director at Pinsent Masons, commented: ÂGiven the scale of the Pinsent Masons digital dictation workflow project we needed a proven system that could cope from a multi-site and Âsheer volume of dictationÂ perspective. BigHand has shown itself to be a premium technology in terms of network efficiency, coupled with a flexibility and ease-of-use that is second to none. When you add the fact our relationship with BigHand is very strong, and given they are committed to open standards and systems integration, the decision was a clear one.Â
The BigHand Digital Dictation System is now used at a majority of the largest sites in the UK legal sector including Pinsent Masons (1250+ users), Ashurst (1200+ users), Lovells (1200+ users), Denton Wilde Sapte (1000+ users), Wragge & Co (800+ users), Nabarro Nathanson (700+ users), and SJ Berwin (550+ users).
Recognised by Deloitte in 2004 as one of the fastest growing software companies in the UK, and one of the 500 fastest growing software companies in Europe, BigHand was voted ÂBest Legal Office Technology System 2004Â by over 16,000 lawyers and IT managers across the legal sector. BigHand was also voted Best Legal Office Technology Supplier at the 2003 LOTIE Awards, and our leading product won the Society for Computers & Law IT Award in 2003 for Âthe most outstanding application of information technology to the law in UK and IrelandÂ. Additionally, BigHand was voted ÂBest Legal Office Automation SystemÂ at the Legal Office Technology Awards in 2002.
