Forster Dean, one of the UK’s largest high street law firms, has purchased a Winscribe digital dictation and workflow management solution, after meeting Winscribe at February’s Legal IT Show. Having previously reviewed the market and following a successful Winscribe pilot of four secretaries and six solicitors (authors); Forster Dean decided to roll out Winscribe Digital Dictation to its 18 offices, 35 secretaries and 50 solicitors, just seven months after making initial contact with Winscribe. To improve fee earners billing capability, Forster Dean opted for both office dictation with the Philips 5274 SpeechMike and mobility dictation via Winscribe's Blackberry DDS application.
