What our clients say about us

DictateNow is an integral part of our firm now, providing an essential typing service. They complete our work within our case management system which makes the service as seamless as possible. Solicitors outsource work to DictateNow themselves so that they can manage their and their secretaries workloads and so maintain the high level of service for our clients. It is particularly useful for work sent out of hours.

I like the fact that we have a team of DictateNow typists who have got to know our systems well. The turnaround times are excellent (generally in less than an hour) and if we have any issues they are resolved quickly. Nothing is too much trouble for them and some of our lawyers use the service as a primary source of typing.
