London, UK (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
BigHand, the leading digital dictation vendor for the legal community, has today announced that Liverpool law firm JST Lawyers has reported significant return on investment within just 10 months of implementing the BigHand digital dictation workflow system. The project has also included use of BigHand's award-winning BlackBerry Edition for remote dictation.
The firm switched 34 users from analogue tape dictation to the BigHand system during early 2008; a thorough review of the market confirmed BigHand as the most technically advanced system available, designed specifically to increase law firm productivity and reduce overheads. JST's Head of IT, John Stirrup, explains why the firm chose BigHand over alternative providers, and details the ROI achieved to date:
''Having thoroughly reviewed and evaluated a number of options and suppliers, JST Lawyers chose BigHand for a number of reasons, but in the main it was due to their status as market leaders, combined with their innovative approach to using new technologies such as the interface with mobile dictations.
Since JST Lawyers installed BigHand we have seen a significant return on investment; our dictation transcription times are now 2 to 3 times faster, and secretaries are more easily able to prioritise tasks. Substantial savings have been made on temporary secretarial staff costs and we are able to monitor workflows during sickness absence and holiday periods.
We have found that BigHand's project management and support are first class.''
