WinScribe announced today the release of the newest version of its digital dictation workflow management suite: WinScribe Dictation Version 4.0. The new version has many new features including a new secretary client that provides easier identification on dictations, easier team working, and an enhanced dictation job filtering option. The release also provides improved control of organization workload through advanced reporting tools and the ability to upload dictations from a wider array of manufacturer independent input devices.

WinScribe has enhanced its mobility suite with this release as well. It is now possible to upload dictations from WinScribe’s popular dictation application for BlackBerry Smartphones using the BlackBerry device as a USB device granting users the ability to quickly upload dictations captured on the device without having to rely on wireless signal strength or availability in order to do so.

“WinScribe Dictation v. 4.0 has evolved purely from customer feedback,” explains Matthew Weavers, Chief Executive Officer. “Continuous innovation through reinvestment into R&D means our customers always have the best product we can provide. This is what makes a sustainable business and helps to maintain a market lead whilst others play catch up. Building on our philosophy of providing an easy to use yet flexible interface to WinScribe users, version 4.0 sets the standard for representing workflow data in a way most suited to the users’ requirements. Its functionality is matched by its modern look and feel which will be familiar to users of Microsoft’s latest Office product. Version 4.0 just delivers more: more productivity, more ease of use, more features and more customization opportunities,” said Weavers.

Philips, a strategic partner of WinScribe, is offering a trade-in initiative in conjunction with the release of this new version. Under this promotion, current WinScribe customers that upgrade to Version 4.0 can return older dictation hardware from any manufacturer and  receive the latest product from Philips at significantly discounted prices. Clients interested in taking advantage of this promotion are encouraged to contact their WinScribe sales representative or authorized WinScribe partner for more information.
