BigHand’s Hosted Digital Dictation Software for Android Dramatically Increases Billable Time at Compensation Claims Specialist Price & Slater
BigHand’s hosted digital dictation software for Android™ has enabled medical negligence and personal injury specialists Price & Slater to dramatically increase the number of hours charged, increasing profitability without hiring more fee-earners.
London, 9th February 2012 – BigHand, the leading voice productivity software vendor in the global legal and professional services sector has today announced that the niche personal injury and medical negligence firm Price & Slater, has dramatically increased billable time without hiring more fee earning staff via BigHand’s hosted digital dictation software. The ability to increase fee-earning capacity whilst minimising costs has resulted in a significant improvement in profitability for the firm.
BigHand’s hosted dictation software, Small Business Edition, has improved mobile productivity as fee earners now instantly submit dictations to their Australia-based admin support from any location via their Android smartphones, improving document turnaround times and client service.
Mark Slater, partner at Price & Slater comments:
“Since implementing BigHand we have experienced a huge increase in the amount of billable work we are able to do. By increasing the hours we spend fee-earning we have dramatically increased our profitability, without increasing the number of fee-earning staff. The costs associated with BigHand’s hosted solution are minimal, and the software is incredibly easy to use.
We are a cloud based firm and do not operate from a dedicated office, so work mainly from home. This hosted solution is the perfect fit for our firm. We dictate from Manchester and our typing service transcribes in Australia. No documents are emailed between us preventing any data protection issues and I can easily see when work has been completed. The software has been a doddle to use, it’s as if a typist is sat next to me.’’
