Chicago, IL (PRWeb UK) February 22, 2011
BigHand, the leading workflow digital dictation vendor in the global legal sector, has today announced the release of the 4th Edition of its award-winning software. Representing a major new version, BigHand once again pushes the boundaries of voice productivity technology, particularly on the Smartphone platforms.
Steve Butterworth, President, BigHand Inc. comments:
“The release of BigHand 4 is a significant landmark in the development of voice productivity technology. Last year’s acquisition of nFlow, a major European competitor, presented us with an opportunity to combine the best of both applications with a suite of innovative new features and tools such as Mobile Email Integration, the world first BigHand for Android™ client and advanced multistep workflow functionality. BigHand 4 demonstrates our continued commitment to client delivery and development of highly accessible voice productivity software.”
BigHand 4 enables firms to:
- Save time on the move via enhanced Mobile Email Integration
Use your smartphone to attach an email to a voice file, or insert an existing attachment, and forward to admin support for faster document turnaround

Easily create powerful and flexible multistep workflows to move dictations and associated documents through a series of desired actions and to multiple destinations, all within the same product without the need to buy additional business process management software

Pre-build a list of clients and matters with pre-profiled voice files ready for authors to record against during a deposition
- Reduce administrator input via Send Anywhere
Authors can now dynamically choose the recipient of their voice file without the need for admin to create a new workflow
- Improve security with Confidential Dictations
Authors can mark a dictation as confidential by simply checking a tick box, without the need to create confidential workflows, and accessible only to the author and specified recipient
- Increase draft quality via Bookmarking
Users can now bookmark points for reference within a voice file and add additional notes, improving the communication of critical information
- Maximize voice-to-text accuracy via unique Speech Recognition Pre-Learning Utility
Quickly and simply pre-train speech profiles using an author’s existing dictations to ensure highly accurate results from the very first time of use

“Version 4 represents a significant and exciting advancement in the power of our technology. The ongoing development of our Smartphone offering takes mobile working to a whole new level and will further help our clients address the constant demand for lawyers to be more productive out of the office. In terms of improving back office efficiency, BigHand’s advanced workflow functionality comprises a set of flexible and powerful tools within the core product that will allow administrators to more easily define, control and report on their internal document production processes.
