VIQ Dataworxs Wins Secure, Cloud-Based Medical Transcription Upgrade

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 17, 2015) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) is pleased to announce that VIQ Dataworxs has been awarded a cloud-based transcription workflow migration project with Expedite Transcription Services Inc. of Vancouver.

Founded in 1996, Expedite Transcription Services has rapidly grown to become a leading provider of medical and legal transcription services in British Columbia and across Canada. With a prestigious client list of over 1,500 physicians as well as multiple medical clinics, insurance and law enforcement agencies, Expedite has been a Dataworxs customer since 2007, using their secure Audioworxs system to provide prompt, accurate transcripts to their customers while maintaining the highest privacy and security standards. The Audioworxs system enables Expedite's customers to dictate via telephone, computer, mobile phone or handheld device, with the audio automatically routed to the appropriate Expedite transcriptionists.

With the migration, Expedite is adding the latest VIQ Dataworxs browser-based transcription workflow solution. The entire workflow is accessed via secure cloud connection, allowing authorized transcriptionists to retrieve their audio files via their standard web browser with no additional software, including word processing programs. The entire VIQ Dataworxs dictation and cloud-based transcription workflow is completely compliant with security and privacy protocols such as PIPEDA and HIPAA.

The VIQ Dataworxs solution includes a powerful management dashboard that provides administrators with live, instantaneous insight into all activity on the network for efficient enterprise-wide document and personnel management. Sophisticated smart template algorithms automatically calculate word and page counts, reliably simplifying billing and compensation procedures.

The new cloud-based transcription workflow is being provided to Expedite under VIQ Dataworxs' flexible SaaS pricing, quickly moving the transcription firm to the next level of advanced functionality without a large initial financial investment.

"The flexible dictation and secure, cloud-based transcription workflow of the VIQ Dataworxs solution is a powerful tool for transcript management, empowering organizations to provide efficient transcription service while increasing their control over their system," said Daryl Duda, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at VIQ Dataworxs. "Our sophisticated security focus meets all requirements for privacy and security protocols around the world, making the solution ideal for medical and legal transcription, while the flexibility of our cloud and SaaS payment schedule make the solution easily accessible for any organization that requires a transcription workflow."

"Offering our advanced technology on cloud and SaaS-based platforms provides not only an attractive option for new and existing customers, but also a steady, recurring revenue stream for VIQ Dataworxs," added Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Solutions.
