CHICAGO - Keno Kozie Associates, a leading provider of information technology design, service and support to law firms and legal departments, today announced that the company has partnered with BigHand Professional, a voice productivity software solution.
"We are very pleased to be able to offer this cloud-based dictation solution to our clients," stated Sue Keno, vice president at Keno Kozie. "With firms not only working from their laptops, but their smartphone or tablets; BigHand’s digital dictation workflow, combined with their speech recognition module allows for greater efficiency. We always strive to help make our clients IT needs to help streamline their workloads and processes."
BigHand Professional is designed primarily for firms of up to 30 users although it is scalable for larger firms who wish to migrate their systems to the cloud. The combination of a subscription pricing model, minimal IT infrastructure requirements, flexible workflow options and enhanced mobile productivity benefits fits perfectly for smaller firms. This cloud-based solution enables dictation from a PC or laptop, smartphone or tablet, or any digital dictation device, and offers an optional hosted speech recognition module. In addition, BigHand Professional has a workflow management solution that gives firms the ability to assign priority to tasks, and enables staff collaboration to digitize and manage document production and task allocation processes. This allows greater visibility over workloads and processes as well as greater efficiency through increased collaboration among support staff and enhanced productivity for mobile lawyers.
"We are excited to work with Keno Kozie to bring state-of-the-art workflow technology to their clients," said Eric Wangler, President, North America at BigHand. "BigHand and Keno Kozie have worked collaboratively in the past on specific implementations of the BigHand software. Adding BigHand’s cloud-based solution to Keno Kozie’s existing product portfolio will further help their clients compete in today’s dynamic legal environment."
Established in 1996, BigHand supports more digital dictation users directly, across the professional services and public sectors, than any other provider in the industry.
BigHand’s Voice Productivity Technology combines enterprise digital dictation, mobility applications (e.g. iPhone, iPad, Android & Windows devices), digital hardware (e.g. Philips and Olympus) and speech recognition integration, offering professionals a proven business application that enables them to use their voice to get more done, while increasing operational efficiencies and reducing overhead costs.
BigHand also provides a Workflow Management Solution that allows businesses to use BigHand’s extensive workflow, priority and collaboration tools to digitize and manage document production and task allocation processes. This enables their clients to attain greater visibility over their workload and processes and benefit from greater efficiency through increased collaboration.
