BigHand, a provider of voice productivity technology and workflow digital dictation for the legal marketplace, today announced the launch of BigHand for BlackBerry 10.

BigHand for BlackBerry 10 will be released on January 30 at the same time as the new devices from Research in Motion (RIM), providing legal professionals with a unique productivity tool that enables them to instantly send dictations or instructions on their new BlackBerry 10 smartphones to support staff for transcription and completion.

In addition to lawyers being able to submit voice files directly from their BlackBerry 10 smartphones, lawyers can then track the status of all submitted dictations via the dictation app, while office-based staff can prioritize and share dictations for more efficient processing.

Other features include the following:

  • Automatic notification to review attached files;
  • Simple one-click record;
  • Live status updates on submitted dictations;
  • The ability to attach documents, pictures, and files; and
  • Multiple priority options.

"BlackBerry has long been established in the legal vertical marketplace supporting lawyers and their firms with a secure, reliable, and innovative mobile platform for applications that allow them to be more productive in and out of the office. RIM is pleased to be working with BigHand, a leader in the enterprise digital dictation space for law firms. The BigHand dictation app for BlackBerry 10 customers will significantly add to the experience for professionals in the legal vertical,” said Martyn Mallick, vice president of global alliances and business development at RIM, in a statement.
