BigHand Acquires Verdatum
BigHand, a global provider of voice productivity solutions for legal professionals, announced that it has acquired Verdatum, a legal digital dictation software provider. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Prior to its acquisition, the company had been developing two products: Verdatum, its workflow digital dictation software solution, and Verbble, a voice input system that enables nonlegal businesses to enhance their internal applications, such as CRM, with speech recognition.
"The coming together of BigHand and Verdatum is a concept that has been in discussion for quite some time," said Jon Ardron, CEO of BigHand, in a statement. "The Verdatum solution's highly regarded reputation in the U.S. is a direct result of its focus on the specific dictation needs of law firms. It is this commitment to the legal industry that aligns precisely with BigHand's mission of providing law firms with client-led innovations, such as our new FreeMe native iPad app, that help lawyers get more done with their voice and aid firms with business process workflow strategies."
