No accident: Leading workers’ compensation firm drives flexible working for attorneys with BigHand Professional

BigHand

With BigHand Professional in place, our attorneys can dictate on the go, allowing them to focus their time on casework. Our support staff can also prioritize their workloads easier, and provide first-class service to our attorneys, which in turnensures first-class service for our clients.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) December 04, 2019
Martin Law is one of the leading workers’ compensation law firms in Pennsylvania, with over 40 years of experience and 8 attorneys certified as a specialist in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Section on Workers’ Compensation Law as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The firm is relied upon for its industry knowledge, with its attorneys having co-authored multiple editions of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Practice and Procedure Handbook.
As part of a larger efficiency drive, the firm decided to replace its previous on-premise dictation technology and hand-held devices, with BigHand’s cloud-based digital dictation solution, BigHand Professional.
Christopher Jones, Chief Technology Officer at the firm explains, “We work in a very competitive area of law, and in order to stay ahead we have to ensure we offer leading industry knowledge as well as first-class client service delivery.”
“We identified an area of improvement with our attorneys’ dictation turnaround. Previously, the attorneys would have to wait until they were at home or in the office to upload dictations and send to their support staff for transcription. This could sometimes take days, as our attorneys spend most of their time on the road visiting clients.”
With BigHand Professional, attorneys can create dictations via the BigHand Go app on their mobile phone, and send to their support staff straight away, when out of the office. They can also select different priority levels when sending dictations, so support staff can focus on urgent work first, and better manage their workloads.
Christopher continues, “The fact that BigHand Professional is hosted in the cloud, really appealed to us. From a business continuity standpoint, our attorneys can continue to do their job, even if the office happens to be closed.”
“After an initial demonstration, we decided to trial the solution with a couple of attorneys, who were impressed with how easy the technology is to use, and how streamlined the dictation-to-transcription process is. We have since rolled out BigHand Professional to all our attorneys, who are benefiting from reduced turnaround times and increased flexibility, and not having to worry about carrying a dictaphone around with them – which in turn has reduced our hardware costs.”
He concludes, “With BigHand Professional in place, our attorneys can dictate on the go, allowing them to focus their time on case work. Our support staff can also prioritize their workloads easier, and provide first-class service to our attorneys, which in turn ensures first-class service for our clients.”
About BigHand ProfessionalBigHand Professional makes dictation easy, cost effective and secure on your desktop, smartphone, or tablet. It is the ideal solution for small and medium organizations due to the combination of subscription pricing, minimal IT requirements, smart workflow options and mobility benefits. Learn more here.

Spiff Leads G2's Mid-Market Grid for Best Sales Compensation Software

According to G2’s latest Grid Report, Spiff’s customer-first strategy has paid off and the company now tops the charts across multiple categories
Press Release – updated: Nov 11, 2019 05:00 MST

SALT LAKE CITY, November 11, 2019 (Newswire.com) – ​​​​In the crowded commission software market, vendors have to work hard to win and retain customers. For Spiff, a sales compensation and incentive platform founded in 2017, that means delivering an experience so good customers can’t bear leaving. According to G2’s latest Grid Report, Spiff’s customer-first strategy has paid off and the company now tops the charts across multiple categories.
G2 is a software review platform with almost one million validated reviews across thousands of products and services. Every quarter, the G2 team assembles the top-rated solutions in the Grid Report and ranks them according to customer opinion. The Grid Reports are, therefore, a key litmus test for validating the success of customer experience campaigns. 
“We’re absolutely delighted by our customers’ feedback,” said Jeron Paul, Spiff’s founder and CEO. “Commission planning has long been a headache for firms of all sizes, and we’ve always had one simple goal – take that pain away. The Fall Grid Report shows we’re on our way to achieving that and the team and I couldn’t be happier.”
Spiff recently raised $6 million in VC funding to transform the way people calculate commissions around the globe. Millions still use Excel for complex commission structures, wasting hours of time and expense on error correction. Competing commission platforms regularly fail too, argues Paul, who believes dedicated software is just as bad if nobody understands how to use it.
“Most of the time, the problem with commission planning isn’t the plans themselves but the tools used to build them,” said Paul. “Excel isn’t scalable or purpose-built for commissions. A lot of purpose-built commission software is too clunky or obscure to make life easier for the people using it. Commission planning isn’t an exact science, so the simpler we can make the process and execution, the better our customers’ plans will be.”
Spiff is one of the highest-rated compensation platforms on G2. Customers frequently praise the platform for its ease of use, transparency, and the hours its saved finance and sales teams who were previously using Excel or other software. The Fall Grid Report is further evidence of the hard work of Paul and his team. With Spiff, the tedium of sales compensation might finally be over. 
“Commissions are supposed to motivate teams, not give them headaches,” said Andrew Gazdecki, Spiff’s Chief Growth Officer. “We’re thrilled our customers agree that with Spiff, everyone from the sales reps to the CFO can be one big happy motivated team.”
