Data Security comes first

Company’s data is often its greatest asset. Once Olympus Dictation for iPhone or for Android is connected with ODDS, an organisation can benefit from a vast range of security features. Dictations can be recorded in DSS Pro format and sent with 256-bit AES encryption. This means that dictation(s) are protected even before they are sent via HTTPS or FTPS and cannot be listened to by unauthorised person(s) at any point in the delivery chain.

In addition, the Author can set a 4-digit security lock on the file, opened only by recipient typings in the same pin number.

Located in Finland, the Olympus dictation portal is highly secure and accessed through login and password control.  Administrators can access users' license settings, order additional licenses or move licenses between smartphones and authors.

Meta information such as author ID and work types are also stored in the dictation file, these options can be set as part of the initial App installation and setup, or added at a further date.
