New Philips Pocket Memo Voice Recorders Help Busy Professionals Streamline Their Work Processes

Speech Processing Solutions, the international leader in professional dictation, has received excellent customer reviews for its latest products, the Philips Pocket Memo voice recorder, its dictation app for smartphones and its cloud-based workflow solution SpeechLive.

From small businesses to large corporates, professionals worldwide facing high document workloads can significantly benefit from Philips’ innovative dictation solutions. Documents can be recorded on the go and be sent via Philips SpeechLive to be transcribed right away*. No more wasting time.

Allsop, UK-based property consultants, rely on Philips Pocket Memos and SpeechLive for convenient remote working. “What is great is when I am out on inspections, I can dictate using the app, send it straight up to the secretary and it’s done by the time I’m back in the office.” Richard Bouchier, Partner, Allsop.

Alexander Kurz Estate Agency uses Philips Pocket Memos to feed their recordings straight into transcription software which transcribes everything automatically. “It was important to us to find a solution that facilitated future-oriented technologies, such as speech recognition, and yet at the same time permitted us to work traditionally too,” says Alexander Kurz, the owner of the agency.

Catrin Meyringer, owner of CAT Communications PR agency in Austria also takes advantage of the new Pocket Memos and uses them in combination with the real-person transcription service provided by Philips SpeechLive. “For the most part, I use the Pocket Memo in my interviews because I am used to it and can use it blindfolded. If I happen not to have it with me, then I also use the iPhone app by Philips for recording when at the customers. Then I upload my dictations to SpeechLive for transcription.” Qualified transcriptionists then process the dictated material immediately and return the finished document within 24 hours as standard.

Kaper Nooijen Advocaten, a young and dynamic legal practice specializing in employment law in the Netherlands has taken advantage of the new Pocket Memo voice recorder 8000 series. Founder Simone Kaper explains: “If I’m in the car after visiting a client, I have the whole conversation worked out in my head, or the letters I want to draft, or the procedural documents I need to prepare. Now I can do this straightaway. Thanks to this way of working, we can minimize our overheads, which means we can charge fixed fees and favorable rates.”

No matter which industry or country your business is located in, Philips dictation solutions help you save time and allow you to focus on your actual core tasks, maximizing your efficiency.
