Chicago, IL - Bradley & Gmelich LLP, a business law firm with offices in Southern California and the San Francisco Bay Area, chose BigHand Digital Dictation and BigHand Speech Recognition to increase efficiency and simplify the process of managing dictations. Today they share details of the project’s successes.
Recently, the firm decided to upgrade to a new digital dictation system. They were looking for a solution that was not only easy to implement and use, but also offered speech recognition, to reduce the time spent on transcriptions. Prior to BigHand, some attorneys were using tape-based devices, while others had tried a non-legal specific dictation solution with speech recognition, but were not satisfied with the quality of the audio capture.
BigHand’s voice solution met the firm’s needs perfectly, as well as being established and respected in the legal market. Since implementation, the firm has recorded significant time savings. Cheryl Davis, Office Administrator, comments: “BigHand is a total workflow solution. It allows us to be much more productive - even when an assistant is out of the office we can simply reassign work to someone else.”
She adds: “BigHand Speech Recognition is saving our secretaries so much time - and it continues to get better all the time!”
Regarding increased efficiency, one of the firm’s secretaries commented, “My transcription processing is about 60% faster – if not more – and the sound quality is excellent. We are already achieving greater than 80% accuracy on complex medical terms which saves us a lot of time on the back end.”
Attorneys at Bradley & Gmelich LLP are using BigHand for everything from straight document dictation, to billing time and sending instructions to their support staff. The fact they can create and send dictations while out of the office is a big advantage and adds to the efficiency of their work. All attorneys were required to use BigHand during their pilot phase. As it turns out, some of those who previously did not dictate have continued to use BigHand after being so impressed with the ease-of-use and efficiency achieved when using the technology.
