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 the embodiment of this vision in familiar solutions now, from tablets, voice-enabled mobile apps, and cloud-based document sharing tools like Evernote, to name a few. The growing shift in how we work and live is also evident in an ever-expanding mobile workforce and growth predictions in spending on mobility solutions.
As the demand for access to content across devices and platforms continues to rise, so too is the need to empower employees with tools to help them get their work done from anywhere.
This is already happening within many of the document-intensive sectors we serve, from social services, legal, finance, to public safety – all seeking smarter applications to help employees document in the field or on the road, so they can capture more details of their interactions to improve report accuracy and productivity.
Today, we’re excited to announce new updates to Dragon Anywhere and Dragon Anywhere Group – our cloud-based, professional-grade iOS and Android dictation solutions for mobile professionals and field workers.
With our recent update, we’ve added quite a few requested features, including a significant update to the Correction menu to provide functionality closer to our desktop versions of Dragon. Working alongside today’s mobile versions of Microsoft Office, and seamless synchronization with Evernote, these solutions provide a highly networked “anytime, anywhere” environment for professionals who want to easily create and manage documentation on the go.
How will documentation and communications evolve in the next 5 years? I’m confident Nuance will continue to deliver intelligent applications to help.
