Winscribe Dictation – Advanced voice capture and speech productivity solutions for the modern business Winscribe Dictation is a world-renowned digital dictation workflow and speech productivity solution that enables users to efficiently manage their dictation and speech-enabled documentation processes. Using a PC, a touch-tone telephone, a digital recorder, smartphone or tablet device, Winscribe Dictation enables business professionals to record their dictation when required, from wherever they are using the device that suits them best. Within seconds of completing the dictation, the file is automatically delivered for transcription.
Key features of Winscribe Dictation include:
Winscribe Dictation is a centralised digital dictation workflow system with the technology to remove manual processes from the dictation and transcription workflow. Winscribe Dictation’s workflow capabilities are able to acquire organizational intelligence and use this intelligence to make the most efficient work distribution decisions.
Mobility and flexibility are critical in today’s fast moving business environment. Winscribe provides business professionals with the freedom to capture and deliver dictation immediately by using mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, BlackBerry smartphones, and Android smartphones and tablets. They also enable organisations who have already embraced mobility to deploy an advanced workflow system without incurring additional hardware costs.
It is critically important for professional organisations to protect the confidentiality of sensitive information. Winscribe Dictation makes use of two levels of security: file encryption and HTTPS. There is also a comprehensive set of policy rules within the system for managing password protection, retention, and re-use; account lock out; and force password change.
Winscribe Dictation maintains a consolidated information store. This allows managers to monitor the status of the entire dictation and transcription process in real-time. In addition, reports can be produced assessing usage, productivity, and efficiency metrics, which can be used to identify potential bottlenecks, and to continually make improvements to the process.
Winscribe’s applications are flexible and scalable for every client’s requirements. Winscribe’s products are built on Microsoft architecture and make use of SQL & Microsoft .Net technologies. With a built-in software development kit (SDK), Winscribe can be tailored to provide the maximum benefit to users.
Winscribe delivers workflow technology that removes manual processes from your dictation and transcription processes, saving your organisation TIME! The Winscribe workflow engine has the ability to acquire organisation-specific criteria, enabling it to make intelligent decisions and shape the automated steps between the workflow’s starting point and ending points. The Winscribe engine can collect dictation from multiple sources, determine the most efficient and desirable route for each job, automatically route the dictation anywhere in real-time, and automatically adapt to any deviations from the standard workflow (e.g. typist availability). Furthermore, Winscribe workflows make it possible to monitor the overall status of the entire dictation/transcription process in real-time, maintain archives, and provide valuable reporting for assessing productivity and efficiency.
TIME! You get time back that would have previously been wasted manually delivering audio tapes, sending digital files, and managing data – enabling organisations to focus time and effort on more revenue-generating activities.
The core of the Winscribe Dictation system is the intelligent management of dictation files over a server or network of servers. Audio files are still played by a typist or secretary, but voice files are sent electronically across LANs, WANs, via telephony or over the Internet to intelligent workflow servers that identify a user’s details and automatically send his or her dictation to the most appropriate secretary, secretarial workgroups or outsourced transcription providers for completion. Digital dictation workflow software can also be used in conjunction with third-party systems such as document, records, case, or patient management systems.
Winscribe Reporting provides an effective solution for businesses to collect, track, analyse, and report on their dictation and speech recognition data, staff productivity and organisational efficiency – enabling them to work smarter and leaner. Winscribe Reporting allows your company to create powerful reports and billing summaries, straight from within the Winscribe digital dictation workflow management system; and enables your organisation to take control of your transcription outputs. Winscribe reports can also provide an overview of how well your dictation or speech recognition system is working for your company: who is using it most efficiently, who is not, and whether your dictation and transcription processes are working effectively. In turn, your company is able to quickly take corrective actions to address performance issues and improve employee usage. Winscribe Reporting allows you to accurately measure staff workloads, output, billing, and revenue generated through your Winscribe Dictation or Winscribe Speech Recognition system.
