Midwich Group signs Philips Dictation to boost channel sales of new voice recorder range  

Diss, Norfolk: 16 September 2016  

Leading trade-only distributor of technology solutions, Midwich, is delighted to announce that it has secured a new partnership with Philips Dictation spanning the UK and Ireland. Midwich will act as specialist audio distributor for Philips’ leading voice dictation brand.

The AV distributor will be showcasing Philips’ product range at Midwich’s Technology Exposed event on 21 – 22 September, including the new Philips Voice Tracer, a recorder with two built-in stereo microphones designed to offer best-in-class audio quality in any recording situation, and Philips Pocket Memo, a lightweight stainless steel digital device perfect for professionals who dictate over longer periods of time.

When Midwich was actively seeking to grow its audio portfolio, which already includes amplifiers, speaker, conference system and more, the AV distributor was impressed by positive customer feedback and innovative technical features offered by the Philips Dictation range. Philips’ comprehensive portfolio of digital recording and transcription solutions include software, hardware and services for dictation users, secretaries and transcriptionists, as well as IT managers and administration staff.

As part of the agreement, Midwich will supply Philips’ consumer voice recorders, professional dictation hardware and transcription services to resellers and integrators, especially those targeting the medical and legal markets.
