Ridout & Maybee LLP, one of Canada's leading intellectual property and technology law firms, today announced it has fully implemented the BigHand Digital Dictation system. This has resulted in significant administrative improvements. In particular, Ridout & Maybee LLP has reported considerable enhancements to workflow. Early indications are that the firm will achieve a full return-on-investment.

Janet McEwan-Konink, Manager - Workflow at Ridout & Maybee LLP:

"We evaluated a number of products such as Verdatum, Philips and Crescendo in our search to replace our Dictaphone system, but it was clear BigHand gave us everything we required in terms of functionality, stability and visibility. It is user-friendly, offers an email 'look and feel' with in-built alerts, familiar reporting capabilities all which have been incorporated with legal users in mind.

The results have exceeded our expectations. It is now much easier to move dictation both within the office and the firm."
