New partnership to combat firm's cyber security risks

New partnership to combat firm's cyber security risks

Cyber security

A Melbourne-headquartered firm has paired up with a global provider of cyber security management to boost its efficiency while reducing the threat of valuable client information being exploited.

Bazzani Scully Priddle Lawyers (BSP) has become the first Australian firm to partner with VIQ Solutions.

Under the new agreement, BSP has access to the company’s speech recognition integration upgrade Dataworxs – a platform that more than 500 legal firms around the world use for secure digital capture and transcription.

Law firms demand the highest standards in cyber security and data privacy and are increasingly turning to VIQ Dataworxs to meet their dictation and transcription needs," said Daryl Duda, VIQ Dataworxs' vice-president of sales.

The addition of speech recognition integration through partners like Nuance enables VIQ to provide efficient capture and transcription workflows for law firms and other legal agencies.

According to Mr Duda, the “flexible” VIQ Dataworxs workflow enables BSP lawyers to capture client notes and other key dictation using the MobileMic smartphone app or digital handheld devices for “secure any time, anywhere capture”.

Breaking down the practicality of the platform, Tina Di Marzio, national client relationships manager at VIQ Dataworxs, said “voice files are automatically routed through the secure VIQ Dataworxs workflow to the fully integrated Nuance speech recognition engine for automated transcription”.

She noted that the speech recognition technology integration enables BSP to speed up document turnaround times, reduce transcription costs and increase efficiency.

The integration of Nuance speech recognition with the VIQ Dataworxs platform provides a streamlined transcription workflow, helping lawyers and law offices provide fast, efficient service while keeping their important client information private and secure,” she added.
