Winscribe lets improve the processWinscribe has had a strong presence here in South Africa for well over 17 years, with installed sites in most of the privately owned radiology practices, many government departments, financial institutions and many legal firms.
With a clear understanding of the specific needs and requirements of our local legal firms and the individual practitioners, we are able to provide solutions that meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.

Prior to the implementation of a Winscribe Dictation workflow within a practice, we spend time gaining a clear understanding of the stated needs of the practice. We then translate this into a workflow that offers the benefits expected from such a solution. A clear advantage of Winscribe is that the workflow rules can be easily amended at any time and with very little effort to further fine-tune the solution to meet the expectations of the users.
