Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 4, 2009
WinScribe, the market innovator in digital dictation, transcription and workflow management solutions, announced today that it has renewed its partnership with Philips in order to continue to provide WinScribe clients and prospects the opportunity to continue to incorporate Philips digital dictation hardware devices as part of their digital dictation workflow management solution.
This announcement comes as WinScribe prepares for the next release of its award-winning digital dictation workflow management suite, WinScribe Dictation Version 4.0. As evidence of its growing relationship and commitment to offering Philips hardware to its end users in the USA, WinScribe and Philips will be offering a trade-in initiative in conjunction with the release of this new version. Under this promotion, current WinScribe customers that upgrade to Version 4.0 can return older dictation hardware from any manufacturer and receive the latest product from Philips at significantly discounted prices. This promotion will begin later this summer upon the formal launch of WinScribe Dictation Version 4.0.
"At Philips we are very excited about this partnership which was formed based on both companies' commitment to providing customers and prospects with industry leading products," said David Ames, Vice President of Philips Speech Processing, North America. "With the market rapidly transitioning to Digital Dictation, the Philips Digital Pocket Memo and SpeechMike products are an ideal fit for WinScribe customers looking for a total solution."
Organizations currently using Philips devices to capture dictation that are not yet leveraging WinScribe Dictation and its powerful workflow capabilities are invited to take advantage of a free test drive of WinScribe Dictation courtesy of WinScribe. Test drives of the WinScribe product are customized to meet the needs of each unique organization. Interested parties may visit http://www.winscribe.com/testdrive to request their free trial.
