Home & business productivity

Cloud-based Dragon speech-to-text software brings big advantages to business

Business has steadily been making the move to the cloud for many years, and not just for data storage but for productivity tools as well. In recent times, as working from home has become the norm rather than a ‘nice to have’, the benefits of this way of working have become more important than ever. Overnight as workers were forced to find ways to be productive away from the office, those businesses that were already using cloud, or were able to adapt quickly had clear advantages.

Now that both workers and business managers have come to recognise the significant benefits of working from home, such as improved work/life balance and reduced office costs, it is becoming clear that the world of work going forwards may for many bear little resemblance to how it was this time last year.

With that in mind many businesses are refining their use of cloud, bringing new productivity tools into the mix. Those who are not already using cloud based speech recognition software might do well to consider what Dragon Professional Anywhere can offer them. So here are the key advantages of using our cloud based digital dictation software.
