VIVA Transcription Launches Cutting Edge Desktop Software

Release Marks Important Milestone in Diversifying Technology Alternatives for Customers

SANTA CRUZ, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - VIVA Transcription, a leading provider of medical transcription services, recently announced the official launch of a new desktop application, marking an important milestone in its ongoing effort to provide healthcare practices with flexible technology alternatives. The software is available to all clients, and allows them to automatically upload dictations and download transcripts from a simple interface on their desktop.

"Now our clients can really do it all," said Nick Howe, head of the account management department. "They have the option of accessing our web portal and continuing to use free features like keyword search or faxing, or they can have their transcripts download automatically to their desktops. The first reviews have been excellent."

The software was produced internally by VIVA Transcription's development team, which focused on a simple design that reflects feedback and requests from clients. Coupled with the latest security standards, it provides an excellent addition to a wide array of proprietary technology for handling sensitive medical documentation. In addition to standard features, users can set up scheduled downloads or monitor folders on their computers so that any new dictations get delivered immediately. CEO Manuel Prado stated, "We have always set ourselves apart from other medical transcription companies by developing technology internally, a decision which has allowed us to focus entirely on our own priorities and that of our clients, rather than adjusting everyone to obsolete external systems."
