Partner success stories:
Server-Based Dragon Engine from Nuance
In Nov 2009 we launched an innovative new Server-based Speech Recognition module aimed at organisations looking to further streamline administrative overheads in the current climate, or support an upturn in work as the economy recovers. The new voice-to-text module also supports voice submission from BlackBerry® Smartphones or Windows Mobile, alongside traditional dictation hardware. The BigHand Server-based Speech Recognition add-on is part of the latest Version (3.3) of BigHand’s award-winning .NET enterprise digital dictation workflow software and utilises the Dragon NaturallySpeaking™ speech server from Nuance Communications.
BigHand for BlackBerry®
BlackBerry Elite Alliance Member

The Alliance Program offers comprehensive support at every stage of the customer lifecycle, and all the benefits of an enhanced relationship with RIM are passed onto our client base.
Voice via Thin Client

Certified App Status
BigHand has been awarded Vodafone Certified application status for its BigHand Mobile application, and is the only digital dictation provider to have achieved Vodafone Certified application status.

As a result, the application has passed the approval process, meeting the high standards demanded by Vodafone UK’s customer base and delivering value to the UK marketplace.
'Best of Breed' CDW Portfolio
CDW Legal Partnership
CDW Corporation is ranked No. 34 on Forbes' list of America's Largest Private Companies. The CDW Legal Sales account team provides leading products backed by specialised training and expertise with heightened focus in areas of particular relevance to the legal sector, including document management, security, case management, evidence lifecycle management (ELM) and now BigHand voice productivity technology. Amyn Meherally, Sales Manager CDW Legal Sales, commented “BigHand have taken law firms away from old school ‘dictation’ and helped them leverage the power of workflow on an enterprise level. While their client-server application enables staff to collaborate, share and expedite documentation via their voice, BigHand’s Smartphone edition is also a leading example of how mobile apps can work in tandem with enterprise business applications and enhance the overall package."
Godfrey Mather, Chief Executive, Debenhams Ottaway commented: “Even before the merger was completed, we could see that the downturn was imminent and likely to be severe so we had to take a look at our cost base. Staff support costs were the highest single expense and also a fixed cost. We needed to both reduce this cost and make it flexible without compromising the efficiency of our service to clients in what was going to become an even more competitive marketplace.''
