FEATURED IN PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS
Updated software package provides superior user experience through advanced integration with speech recognition technology and smart phones, and through the ability to work in Terminal Server and Citrix environments.
Atlanta, GA—Philips, a leading manufacturer of mobile and stationary dictation solutions, today announced the availability of its newest dictation management software solution, SpeechExec Enterprise 4.0. The new software package improves the user experience through numerous upgrades including advanced integration capabilities with speech recognition software and iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry platforms.
“One of the most noticeable changes from the last software package is the superior integration with speech recognition,” said Florian Schwiecker, Director at Philips Speech Processing, North America. “When we started developing this iteration of our software, we talked to users about their needs and found that business professionals in all industries are starting to use speech recognition as often as possible. So we were committed to ensuring that our technology would fully and completely integrate with the best speech recognition platforms currently available.”
In addition to the advanced speech recognition capabilities, SpeechExec Enterprise 4.0 easily integrates with iPhones, iPads and BlackBerry devices. The system also includes new settings designed to allow customers the ability to install the software in the Terminal Server and Citrix environments. The software upgrade also works in 64-bit CPUs and operating systems.
“As we were creating SpeechExec Enterprise 4.0, we wanted to meet the needs of today’s professional workers, which meant the software needed to be compatible with fast servers and smart phones,” said Thomas Brauner, CEO and category leader at Philips Speech Processing. “If today’s professionals can’t work on fast servers or on their smart phones, they cannot deliver the best customer service and may lose their competitive advantage. SpeechExec Enterprise 4.0 ensures that users can use the technology in almost any environment.”
Other upgrades to SpeechExec Enterprise 4.0 include a new user interface which features new application icons, splash screens and toolbar icons designed to mimic modern PC applications so users can quickly learn the program. All user-interface elements follow an intuitive pattern that makes it easy for new and experienced users to navigate through the application. Other updates included in the newest software version are:
- Heightened security, including advanced confidentiality features through encrypted logins and passwords.
- A Carousel view option, which enables typists to see the most relevant information at a glance in a modern and convenient way.
- The ability to display only the most commonly used toolbar functions.
SpeechExec Enterprise is now available from your Philips Speech Processing certified partner (MDCE).
