BigHand, a leading provider of productivity software solutions for law firms, and Kraft Kennedy, a multidisciplinary consulting firm with expertise in technology and management consulting have signed a partnership agreement. This partnership gives Kraft Kennedy the ability to market BigHand to the legal market in the US.
BigHand offers a voice productivity software designed for any size law firm from the solo practitioner up to firms with thousands of attorneys. BigHand is available as a cloud-based solution as well as an enterprise software version for installation on a firm’s server, behind the firewall.
BigHand’s voice productivity solution enables dictation from a PC or laptop, smartphone or tablet, or any digital dictation device, and offers an optional speech recognition module. In addition, BigHand has been working on a new workflow management solution, BigHand Now, which gives firms the ability to delegate and manage virtually any task via the BigHand workflow. Firms can enable improved staff collaboration by digitizing and managing tasks from document productions or word processing to travel requests and room bookings. This allows greater visibility over workloads and processes as well as greater efficiency through prioritization and intelligent routing. BigHand will be demonstrating this new workflow tool at the annual ALA Meeting in Nashville.
"BigHand voice productivity software enables law firms to streamline their processes by giving attorneys the ability to manage their daily administrative work, delegating tasks, capturing billable time, creating documents and handling general workflow, all by using their voice. BigHand allows them to submit dictations as well as delegate tasks from their mobile phones, no matter where they are working." said Beth Thompson, Director of Channel Management North America. "We are excited and honored to be working with Kraft Kennedy in this new partnership. Their team brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership in consulting to the legal industry."
Rob Brindell, Managing Director from Kraft Kennedy commented,"Kraft Kennedy is dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients. We research best-in-class technology and then work with our clients to focus on what is right for their specific business needs. BigHand Voice Productivity software is one of the cutting edge solutions that meets this criteria. It gives firms the opportunity to be more productive and efficient in less time with fewer resources. With BigHand, Kraft Kennedy’s portfolio is stronger than ever and we are able to improve the client’s overall voice productivity experience. The software is easy to use, robust and affordable. We look forward to working with the BigHand team to educate our clients on this fantastic solution."
Both BigHand and Kraft Kennedy will be exhibiting at the ALA Annual Meeting, May 18-20 in Nashville, TN.
