Share Article

Unique promotion sees BigHand offering firms a free 30 day trial of a BlackBerry smartphone with BigHand voice productivity software and an outsourced transcription service.

BigHand, the leading voice productivity specialist for the global legal community, has today launched a unique opportunity for law firms to achieve efficiency savings by trialing a BlackBerry® smartphone with BigHand's dictation software and outsourced transcription service completely free of charge for 30 days. Not only is the 30 day trial free of charge on both a hardware and mobile app basis, but additionally the volume of dictation that can be submitted for transcription by the outsourcing service is unlimited and the network operators' data plan charges are also free.

As part of the promotion, legal professionals can utilise BigHand's application to record, edit, and send voice files using a BlackBerry smartphone. The application securely sends the dictation to an outsourced transcription service, with the user able to prioritise important items, track the progress of work, and then receive transcripts back via email.

David Fryer, Chief Executive Officer at BigHand commented:

"We have experienced high demand over the last 2 years for our BigHand for BlackBerry software as law firms have looked to leverage the wireless investment they have made in recent years by bringing in mobile productivity applications. Additionally, given the current economic situation, we felt that it would be helpful if we could provide a free BlackBerry smartphone so firms can assess how effective these devices can be when coupled with our software and an outsourced transcription agency. Our client base has seen significant productivity gains and reduced overheads and this trial offer will allow firms who have not done it yet the chance to try without any expenditure or risk to themselves."
