MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 10, 2015) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) is pleased to announce that VIQ Dataworxs Australia has been awarded a key upgrade of the dictation system for the Melbourne-based specialist relationships law firm, Berger Kordos Lawyers.
Berger Kordos Lawyers are specialists in all areas of relationship law, representing people, businesses or corporations in resolving matters arising from the formation or breakdown of relationships, such as property, asset protection and mediation. The leading-edge firm provides responsive service with accurate and up to date legal advice and a range of dispute resolution methods, allocating a specialist team to each client to ensure their needs are met.
To help the dedicated staff serve their vision and meet their clients' demands, VIQ Dataworxs upgraded the firm to the latest Audiowav dictation and transcription solution, with the added benefit of the MobileMic app for the capture and management of files via smartphone. Mobile Mic enables the firms' lawyers to send captured files directly from their smartphones via email to the firm's remote transcriptionists. The enhanced AudioWav Player natively recognizes the smart phone file formats, eliminating the need to pay annual subscription fees for a cloud-based distribution server to convert files.
The upgrade also included the seamless integration of Nuance Communications' Dragon speech recognition functionality. Dataworxs Australia installed multiple Dragon Professional licences which the typists use via their AudioWav Player to automatically convert the audio file to text, improving productivity and cutting their transcription time by up to fifty percent. To make the most of their speech recognition integration, VIQ Dataworxs also upgraded the firm's existing Olympus dictation hardware to the latest generation Olympus DS7000, which has the highest possible rating for Dragon speech recognition.
"With this upgrade, Berger Kordos is taking advantage of the most advanced digital dictation and transcription technology on the market, with seamless smartphone and speech recognition integration that saves them time and money and allows them to focus on providing the best possible level of service to their clients," said Tina Di Marzio, Client Relationships Manager at VIQ Dataworxs Australia. "The VIQ Dataworxs end-to-end digital technology platform provides medical centers, law enforcement agencies, courts and leading-edge law firms like Berger Kordos Lawyers in Australia and around the world with a sophisticated, automated capture, management and collaboration solutions that increases productivity and reduces costs."
