Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 30, 2008 -
WinScribe announced today a strategic partnership with Oakland, Calif. based Livescribe, Inc., makers of the industry's first smartpen and a new paper-based mobile computing platform. Livescribe's platform includes its Pulse™ smartpen and dot paper, which turns plain paper into a computer screen and bridges the gap between the paper and digital worlds. The partnership will enable WinScribe to integrate the Livescribe platform into its market leading digital dictation and workflow management software providing customers innovative new applications that integrate voice and digital ink.
The Pulse smartpen by Livescribe is a computer within a pen that not only captures and digitizes handwriting, but also records and syncs audio to writing. By simply tapping on their notes, users can replay what was recorded from the moment they were writing and never miss a word.
"We are very excited about delivering the benefits of this exciting platform to our clients," says Matthew Weavers, CEO of WinScribe. "We pride ourselves on delivering solutions that provide clients business agility and ongoing innovation. Livescribe's Pulse smartpen will provide our users with a voice capture alternative that synchronizes the spoken word to the notes they take. Livescribe coupled with our market leading technology and worldwide partner network provides endless possibilities for innovative paper-based applications."
"With top technology, an installed base of 3,500 sites worldwide and a premier partner network, WinScribe is an excellent partner to deliver this new mobile computing platform to the business community," said Livescribe Founder and Chief Executive Officer Jim Marggraff. "WinScribe and their business partners have deep business knowledge in the healthcare, legal, insurance, and government verticals. We expect this strategic partnership will result in a new generation of business applications that leverage the simplicity and reach of our paper-based mobile computing platform."
