Nuance Communications announced customisation and productivity enhancements for Dragon Professional Group – which provides powerful, enterprise-ready capabilities to easily deploy speech recognition across multiple users to improve documentation productivity within enterprises of any size. Dragon Professional Group has been updated to include a next-generation speech engine leveraging Nuance’s Deep Learning technology to deliver high-recognition accuracy with the ability to learn and adapt to a variety of accents and environments, and making the solution ideal for large workgroups and a variety of settings.
Helping organisations create outstanding documentation
Dragon Professional Group, version 15, helps organisations unlock the efficiency and cost benefits that are inherent in Nuance document productivity solutions. With advanced speech recognition and robust voice command capabilities, professionals can create detailed and accurate documentation – all in real-time by voice. And with optimisation for popular Microsoft Windows touchscreen PCs, mobile professionals and field workers can complete detailed documentation or reports, or fill out form-based templates, such as client intake forms, almost anywhere work takes them.
“Accurate and timely documentation is a critical component of many organisations across a wide range of industries – from financial institutions to social services, and law firms. But if not completed correctly and efficiently, poor documentation can hamper report quality, employee productivity, and increase cost and compliance risks,” said Mark Geremia, Vice President, General Manager of Dragon, Nuance Communications. “Dragon Professional Group effectively addresses these pain points by enabling professionals to use advanced speech recognition and robust voice command capabilities to create outstanding documentation – all by voice. Dragon empowers professionals to work better, faster and smarter – whether they’re in the office or out in the field, saving individuals and organisations time and costs, and improving overall productivity.”
Dragon Professional Group, version 15.
Suitable for enterprises across a wide range of industries including social and financial services, Dragon Professional Group, version 15 enables employees to create high-quality documents, spreadsheets, and presentations or fill form-based reports – which often include drop-down menus and the need to point and click – faster and more accurately, all by voice. With its powerful voice command and transcription capabilities, Dragon Professional Group makes it easy to automate repetitive tasks and manual processes, improving turnaround times while eliminating the need for costly third-party transcription services.
Scalable for any size of organisation, Dragon Professional Group can be easily deployed and centrally managed by an organisation’s IT group or other department using the Nuance Management Center. By providing powerful, yet easy-to-use central user administration capabilities, Nuance allows organisations to enable and manage their Dragon Group solutions across multiple users and departments – meeting requirements for reporting accuracy, enabling the customisation of specialised vocabularies and processes, and centrally managing their Dragon Group product deployments for significant time and cost savings.
“By understanding the intricacies of managing users across a single organisation, we offer a complete enterprise-ready solution that meets an organisation’s specific documentation productivity requirements to improve the corporate bottom line,” said Geremia. “Combined, our Dragon Group solution and Nuance Management Center ensure that organisations of all sizes are armed with a robust and efficient solution for meeting their specific scalability, customisation and management needs.”
“Dragon’s latest machine learning technology includes support for Indian and Asian English accents,” said Derek Austin, Nuance’s Dragon Business Manager, Asia Pacific. “The accuracy improvements in version 15 make this a good time for professionals to revisit Dragon solutions for their own and their teams’ use.”
