With professionals increasingly working whilst out of the office, we developed this app to allow content created on the go to be actioned and finalised on the go.

Specialist provider of digital dictation and speech understanding, BigHand, has launched its mobile iPad application, BigHand Go, which is set to enable users to speed up the efficiency of digital dictations and allow more to be done whilst on the go, ultimately leveraging advanced workflow and profiling features any time, anywhere.

BigHand Go, which is the first digital dictation application developed specifically for the iPad and is the most advanced dictation tool on the market, is designed to increase mobility for professionals that use the BigHand system, with particular specialism in the legal and healthcare markets. The app allows users to record, track and edit dictations whilst synchronising their online and offline work and enabling them to view live updates, allowing total workflow visibility whilst on the go.
BigHand Go reduces the time required to approve and sign off documents when working remotely.
Andy Fielder, Technology Director at BigHand commented, “With professionals increasingly working whilst out of the office, we developed this app to allow content created on the go to be actioned and finalised on the go.”

Additional features include the ability to attach photos and ‘advance profiling’, which enables previous entries to be selected from a drop down list for ease.

Andy Fielder, continues, “This app delivers a great step forward for mobile workers, enabling them to complete far more of their tasks without having to wait. Users are able to send feedback, make edits or approve documents on the go which will mean improved efficiency and significant time savings, all with a few taps of a button.”

With mobile working becoming the standard for many professionals and their organisations as they strive to become more efficient and productive, BigHand Go enhances BigHand’s existing mobile solution, which enables digital dictation to be used on a variety of mobile platforms, including Blackberry, iPhone and Android. BigHand for iPhone can also be integrated with MobileIron’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform, which allows organisations that are using MobileIron to deploy, configure and secure the systems from a central location, drastically reducing maintenance overhead and the complexity of setting up users on these platforms.

BigHand Go is a comprehensible and trustworthy application where all dictations are saved as a draft until sent, allowing documents to be retrieved in the case of a power loss to the device, for example. The app, which supports most text formats, also displays a convenient profiling option allowing the user to choose the type of document they are sending, whether that is a fax, a letter or memo and also remembers these preferences for ease of use.
