the most outstanding application of information technology to the law
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 4, 2007
Texas law firm McCathern Mooty LLP has found that its billing cycle has improved by over 10 days following the installation of the award-winning BigHand Digital Dictation system, meaning firm wide revenue has been significantly enhanced over the course of a year and clients receive their accounts much more quickly. The specialist legal voice productivity software is also helping improve team working and remote working for staff.
Attorneys who did not previously use dictation and relied on typing themselves now dictate using BigHand as it has been established that the ease-of-use and effectiveness of the software makes every attorney significantly more efficient.
McCathern Mooty LLP founding partner Jerry Mooty, recently named as 'Texas Monthly Rising Star' for the second consecutive year, described:
"We had some attorneys who used tapes for dictation and some who didn't dictate at all, but they all now use the BigHand system to dictate admin work, billing records or meeting notes. As a result we have found the billing cycle has been shortened by more than 10 days and obviously that has had a positive impact on the bottom line. It makes no sense for attorneys to be doing any type of administrative work themselves when they can be concentrating on providing quality legal advice and improving our service to clients."
"Just as importantly, we are now able to cover desks instantly when someone is off ill or on vacation - due to instant redirection of digital audio files based on support staff availability. And the BigHand system is also allowing us to look at our remote working strategy for attorneys. All in all it has been a flawless installation with multiple benefits across different areas of the business - one of the best investments in legal software we have made to date."
McCathern Mooty LLP is one of the fastest growing law firms in Texas.
