Philips is no stranger when it comes to digital dictation. With an assortment of voice technology solutions, the company has helped professionals and businesses from diverse range of industries. They have evolved with time as the method of dictating progressed from analogue to digital. When cloud computing started to emerge, Philips joined the bandwagon and added SpeechLive to their portfolio. Offering full flexibility, it is ideal for busy professionals who are dictation-savvy and are always on the move. The cloud-based dictation workflow solution has mobilised users to effectively manage their time and productivity by working from anywhere, anytime. 

History of Philips SpeechLive

In 2013, cloud computing started to gain momentum in becoming the default computing platform, with few groundbreaking technologies accelerating the trend. Industry professionals started to realise the benefits of speech-to-text solution as speaking is undoubtedly faster than writing. The Philips dictation recorder app was introduced, which transformed every smartphone into a professional dictation device. It allowed users to record, edit and send dictation files directly from their own smartphones. Industries professionals that dealt with a lot of admin work, primarily legal and medical, immediately saw the advantage the app provided it terms of saving time doing paperwork to focus more on prioritised tasks and reducing document turnaround time. Almost a year later in 2014, instead of keeping the app one dimensional as a professional recording and editing solution, Philips SpeechLive took it a step further in creating a cloud-based workflow solution. It did not require any installation process or configuration of complicated software or any additional devices. It was as easy as speak, send and done. During the launch of SpeechLive Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions said, “Speaking is about seven times faster than typing. So, dictating documents saves significant amounts of time, especially for people who deal with large amounts of documentation every day.”

Speak. Send. Done. – with SpeechLive

Philips SpeechLive makes the speech-to-text process even easier. With flexible, browser-based, on-demand cloud solution, productivity has never been easier. You can now take control of your entire speech-to-text workflow, no matter if you are in the office or on the go. Take down your notes, tasks, or documents using the Philips voice recorder app on your smartphone or any dictation devices. Send your recording to your assistant for transcription who can access the dictations from any location as well. Customise your dictation workflow to allow your transcription team the opportunity to share workload for greater efficiency gains.  All that the transcriptionist requires is a foot control and headphones. No extra hassle of software installations!

Easy subscription. No hidden cost.

A low subscription fee with fast implementation gives your business a cost-effective solution to get started with no hidden cost. On a SaaS platform, the subscription is privy to regular auto software updates guaranteeing you no operational downtimes or work interruptions, whilst remaining compatible with your IT environment. One of the best characteristics of a software is it’s scalability and longevity, as it never ‘dies’. Developers are constantly working on it – be it general housekeeping or research and development, to keep up with the industry advancements to provide upgraded features for their users to do their work effortlessly and efficiently.

Your data is safe

We understand that security is extremely important to you and your clients. It is the same for us as well. We take this issue very seriously and have set up the highest security standards to protect your data. SpeechLive secures your dictations by encrypting them during recording, again when they are sent, and once again by storing them in an encrypted format in the cloud server. This means end-to-end double encryption and protection from unauthorized access.

Mobile and remote working made easy

In recent times with the ever-changing working structure, as remote working or hybrid working is gaining popularity, effective workflow tools optimised for mobility have become vital for businesses. Being location independent, it’s not possible to collaborate at the same time due to incompatible availabilities, in some cases, time zones. No matter which scenario you are in, Philips SpeechLive helps turn your voice into text as quickly and easily as possible. It allows users to keep track of their jobs, leave comments, follow the workflow status and save their work from any device. The auto-save functions ensure that no work is lost, even if there is a connection problem. It allows you to retain the same efficiency and collaboration as if you were working on premise.
