May 11, 2009
BigHand, a digital dictation workflow developer and service provider, has been certified through the Sprint Smartphone Certification Program to work on Sprint networks.
The Sprint Smartphone Certification Program is a part of Sprint's Application Developer Program that allows independent developers to market, as Sprint Compatible, innovative applications and to allow all Sprint customers access through the Internet, whenever and wherever they go.
With more than nine years of experience in supplying speech technology solutions, BigHand claims as the only digital dictation developer to supply direct to law firms, hospitals or corporations and to offer a premium project management and technical support service.
BigHand software allows professionals to record, edit and send voice files or verbal tasks to office based support, or access outsourced business services. Voice tasks, instructions and dictations sent on-the-go via BigHand then instantly enter the office workflow, and are tracked via status updates, priorities and alerts.
BigHand software architecture is stated to constantly be evolving in line with software and hardware technological advances. With a service orientated architecture (SOA) and technical expertise across multiple areas of functionality, BigHand technology claims to win 8 out of 10 RFIs.
"Using BigHand for BlackBerry smartphones, professionals can use their voice to generate content and get things done while on the move. Many of our clients use it to connect with support staff or verbally delegate work to team members, said Steve Butterworth, president & chief executive officer at BigHand Inc.
“The way you can then track the live progress of items you have verbally assigned to individuals, all from your Smartphone, also means that it helps busy business people get overall control of their workload and task list. As an Enterprise application the workflow element is a very powerful productivity tool, with over 800 organizations globally now using it to mobilize professionals and manage the productivity of their administrative capacity," said Butterworth.
BigHand is a Microsoft Gold Partner, BlackBerry ISV Partner, and was voted 'Mobile Product of the Year 2008' at the CNet Business Technology Awards. BigHand also won 'Best of Breed System of the Year' at the Legal Technology Awards for 2008.
