Share Article

Nivotec, a Speech Recognition and Digital Dictation consultancy, has delivered BigHand dictation workflow software to Northern Ireland law firms McShane & Co and Samuel Cumming & Son.

BigHand, the leading voice productivity specialist for the global legal community, has today announced that Northern Ireland law firms McShane & Co and Samuel Cumming & Son have replaced their incumbent dictation equipment with BigHand workflow software in order to increase their productivity. The projects have been delivered in association with Nivotec, a BigHand partner in Northern Ireland.

Rory McShane, Managing Partner at McShane & Co commented:

''McShane & Co has recently implemented BigHand and our productivity has certainly increased as a result. The firm has two offices and fee earners regularly travel between the two. They are now able to dictate and submit from one office, and the transcription is ready when they reach the other. Day to day management of the firm has also improved as BigHand enables us to monitor the volumes of work created and work outstanding, allocating resource or re-assigning work as necessary.''

Regis Calard, Technical Consultant at Nivotec commented:

"In our experience of digital dictation workflow solutions, the BigHand product, with its suite of remote and mobile working options, has to be the de facto choice for forward thinking law firms. We are very impressed with the comprehensive product delivery methods that ensure end users' expectations are met. We are delighted to be able to offer BigHand to our existing and new customers in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland."

Over 800 law firms have implemented BigHand software to help legal professionals do more with less, expedite the document production process, reduce support & hardware costs and improve client service. In addition to McShane & Co and Samuel Cumming & Son, law firms in Northern Ireland using BigHand technology include Carson McDowell, Cooper Wilkinson, Mills Selig and Tughans Solicitors.
