Burlington, Mass. – May 17, 2016 –Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today unveiled Dragon® Anywhere Group, its secure cloud-based, professional-grade, mobile dictation solution for enterprises of all sizes. Designed for broad deployment across an enterprise employee base, Dragon Anywhere Group enables quick and accurate documentation in the field via iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Mobile professionals can capture important details on their mobile devices quickly and more accurately to complete their documentation and reporting work and improve documentation turnaround time.
According to International Data Corporation (IDC), nearly 75% of the total U.S. workforce is projected to be mobile by 2020*. While many business professionals regard mobile devices as critical to getting their jobs done, according to a recent survey, more than 70 percent struggle with the ability to do long-form writing and detailed work via mobile devices. Dragon Anywhere Group was designed for the mobile enterprise, offering continuous dictation, voice formatting and editing in the field and on the go.
The cloud-based voice recognition in Dragon Anywhere Group enables document creation without time or length constraints, and with the ability to easily share documents and reports via email or cloud-based sharing apps, such as Dropbox and Evernote. For more accurate dictation and to meet business-specific needs, Dragon Anywhere Group can be customized with words such as industry terminology, acronyms, local street names, or other personal preferences, as well as custom commands to insert frequently used text or fillable forms, such as client intake forms. And Dragon Anywhere Group is secure, with data transmitted in the cloud secured through 256-bit encryption.
Dragon Anywhere Group includes powerful management tools with the Nuance Management Center, a web-based environment that enables central administration at a user, group, site or organization-wide level. Nuance Management Center can centrally manage settings at various levels, track usage, manage licenses, and share and manage customizations. Customizations can be shared across an organization and synchronized across devices or the latest versions of Dragon Group desktop products, so work started in the field can be completed back at the desktop for seamless documentation workflows.
The cloud-based speech recognition in Dragon Anywhere Group can also be integrated into third party and custom applications and platforms, such as records or case management systems, keeping preferred interfaces and existing workflows.
Mobilizing the Modern Workplace with Dragon Anywhere Group
“Organizations whose employees spend the majority of their time in the field or on the road have unique documentation challenges. Time-consuming documentation and reporting demands too often lead to paperwork backlogs, missed reporting deadlines or noncompliance,” said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon. “Dragon Anywhere Group empowers field workers, lawyers, social workers, insurance adjusters, public safety officers and other professionals to keep up with documentation demands even when they are away from their desk, saving individuals and organizations time, costs, as well as improving overall productivity.”
“As a rehabilitation counselor, it is important that I efficiently and accurately capture my notes after meeting with individuals in our program,” said Mindy Collins, MAC, Rehabilitation Counselor for Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services. “My experience using Dragon Anywhere has been very positive – it was user-friendly and customizable for my specific work needs. Dragon Anywhere’s accuracy alone has helped me gain hours back to my workweek. It has been an incredible productivity tool for my profession.”
“Office productivity tools shouldn't be one-size-fits-all solutions, especially when employees are working in the field rather than the office,” said Daniel Harris, Market Research Associate, Software Advice. “Dragon Anywhere Group provides an easy tool for authoring reports in the field, along with shared and customizable settings for managing and tracking remote teams of report authors. In effect, they've altered the productivity tool to suit the business context, instead of forcing the business context to fit the limitations of the tool by making employees wait until they return to the office to write a report."
Nuance is holding an exclusive webinar on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. ET to discuss Dragon Anywhere Group and how enterprises and their employees can use their voice to maximize productivity, boost efficiency and stay productive anytime, anywhere.
