SaaS and the Dictator

August 5, 2008 at 12:09 pm 1 comment

Hot on the heels of our post yesterday dealing with audio services “in the cloud”, we happened across this interesting development in the big end of town for enterprise dictation solutions.

WinScribe recently announced the availability of their award-winning system in a software as a service (SaaS) version. Of course, what this means is that practitioners in smaller organisations can avail themselves of an enterprise application without the requisite outlay for servers, related infrastructure and experts to run it all!

It will be interesting to hear how they solved the security issues as practitioners seek to use the system in a internet cafe… that will make for some interesting Help Desk calls.

We feel this is also a low-friction method of trialing their system without the onerous project planning requirements necessitated by an “installed” solution.

Over to the smaller practices to give it a try and the alternative vendors to follow suit!

    How does this compare to BigHand Digital dictation software? which is used by a lot of lawyers and at hospitals across the USA & Canada
