There’s an App for it – a new approach to capturing & sending business cards?

Apps-icon

Olocode today announced the release of Olocode Plus, a free app for iOS that makes contact sharing even easier on the go. Saving people from re-typing business cards themselves, Olocode Plus gives users the ability to take a photo of any card, have it typed out for them and added directly to an address book within minutes. Olocode is a free service linking contact details to a memorable six-character code that makes it easy to share. The code can be printed on a business card, shared in-person or included in an email signature. Olocode users can identify “followers,” including non-registered users, who will receive automatic emails whenever their contact details change.

Comment: Why outsourcing transcription overseas is not a good idea

comment

With a growing number of UK law firms choosing to outsource some aspect of their business processes, in the pursuit of greater efficiency, it is boom time for the large global transcription and secretarial service industry. Whether it’s just general legal transcription of digital sound files, letters, reports and memos, or transcription of voice recording of interviews, conferences and consultations, is there really a difference in the service provided by UK-based service providers and their counterparts overseas. Solicitor Maxine Park, co-founder of digital dictation, transcription and support services provider DictateNow explains why the service overseas isn’t necessarily as good as it paints itself: “When we discuss our service, with law firms in particular, there are five common myths that re-occur when comparisons are made between the service we deliver and that offered by overseas service providers.

Legal Industry Video Awards – Entry #54 – Andrew Haslam on eDisclosure

LIVA-icon-1

Yes, we know this has been a bit like Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour but time now for our final submission to the 2014 Legal Industry Video Awards – number #54 – with an educational piece from Andrew Haslam and The Legal Review on What is eDisclosure? This video uses a new platform that combines video with PowerPoint-type slides and has a DvD-like menu system so you can easily locate and jump between individual ‘chapters’ rather than have to fast-forward/rewind to find the bits you want to view again. For this reason, rather than a straight embed of the video within the site, we are using a pop-up.
