Commercial Benefits of Mobility

Maximise time: all professionals continue working from home or while travelling even if access to the office or office systems becomes unavailable.

Increase efficiency: improves the length of time it takes to turn around work which in turn improves the speed of response to clients.

Manage workloads: authors have visibility of work and are able to track their work while away from the office.

Compatible with other systems: our mobility offering works with third party data systems such as DMS, CMS, PMS and CRM.

Ease of use: by using the profiling option in BigHand Go, professionals can easily send dictations through anytime, anywhere ensuring a consistent workflow.

Empowerment: professionals can work smarter, be more responsive to clients and ultimately more profitable.

Business Continuity: even if access to the office is not possible, users still have a seamless way to get work submitted.
