When it comes to reporting, mobile professionals and field workers need to sweat the small stuff. After all, report thoroughness, detail, and accuracy play a key role in achieving successful outcomes. Police incident reports can make or break a case.

Remember AT&T’s “You Will” commercial from the early 1990’s featuring voice-over from actor Tom Selleck as a man sends a fax from the beach? Watching this ad twenty-five years later shows how amazingly prescient it was, foretelling a trend central to how professionals would communicate, and document those communications today:  mobile and inter-connected. We see […]

New voice and language solutions continue to impact productivity at every level – from improving workflows for document-intensive industries, to simplifying daily tasks. The automation of these tasks – whether at home or where we work – rely on a set of intelligent systems; all of which use complex algorithms driven by machine learning to […]

We’ve been automating everyday tasks with computers for years. In fact, twenty years-ago Dragon Speech Recognition was first introduced to automate the task of typing. Back then, we were only scratching the surface of what machine learning could do. Today, advances in AI-powered tools are having an even greater impact, from making everyday documentation tasks […]

More often-than-not, paperwork doesn’t start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. For many professionals who travel outside the office or work in the field, heavy reporting requirements can oftentimes extend the 40-hour work week as they strive to keep up with documentation and other reporting demands. Social service professionals need to diligently complete […]

As people continue to use their mobile devices to access content, it’s not surprising to see, as part of this mobility trend, a growing demand for intelligent applications to help complete documentation.

There are tangible ways to measure success in business. Revenue goes up as share of the market increases. Business becomes healthier as you manage cash flow towards profits.

Across many industries, we’re reading and hearing about how artificial intelligence will change the future of how we work and automate tasks traditionally performed by humans. From driving cars to predicting sleep cycles, there doesn’t appear to be anything that machines won’t eventually do; and we’re all watching to see what comes next. With all […]

For businesses, better productivity can produce positive ROI. But, as with anything, oftentimes there are instances where time savings are even more valuable than any cost-to-savings equivalence can measure. Look at law enforcement as an example. Hundreds of thousands of police officers take to our streets each day to protect and serve. During a regular […]

Over the years I’ve met and worked with business leaders in many document intensive sectors, from law enforcement, legal, to social and financial services. And while these industries may differ in many ways, one constant remains throughout: the important role documentation plays in meeting industry-specific regulatory and compliance mandates. So, it was not surprising that when […]

Accurate, timely and detailed documentation is extremely important – and in some cases, even critical.
