Technology geared towards busy lawyers and overworked support staff

More law firms than ever before are embracing the power of voice to get jobs done quicker. However, digital dictation is just the beginning.

We know the legal landscape is changing fast – clients are expecting a better service than ever before, you’re challenged to provide more for less, and vying for business is getting tougher. To stay competitive in an ever-changing industry, your firm needs to be agile and operating as effectively as possible.

However, after years of experience in the legal sector, we know the challenges your firm faces – Support staff spend too much time on manual admin. Fee earners struggle to price work accurately, using one centralised pricing structure. Your senior management want to boost profitability, but don’t know how.

This is where BigHand can help. With over 20 years of experience in the legal sector, we have developed the solutions you need to overcome the daily challenges of the legal profession. First, we offer you a unique look into how your front and back-end structure and systems are currently working, then give you the tools and ongoing support you need to make them work better for you.

Having one streamlined digital workflow radically reduces your daily challenges – digitising your admin helps support staff work quicker and more effectively. With access to invaluable business intelligence, your marketing teams can prepare stronger pitches. Using technology helps your fee-earners dictate faster and delegate better. Access to front and back-end data lets your senior management have full visibility over their firm, and empowers them to make more informed business decisions that affect the firm’s bottom line.

Here at BigHand, we’ve been helping law firms since 1995. Our customers are loyal because we deliver solutions that add real value and genuinely make them a better business. We listen and we care, and that's why we are helping Make Big Happen for law firms around the world.
