What is Olympus Dictation Delivery Service (ODDS)?

Olympus Dictation Delivery Service Overview

The Olympus Dictation Delivery Service consists of two components, the Olympus Dictation Portal (ODP) and the Olympus Dictation App for Smartphone. The ODP is a web based management application that allows users to manage their account, licenses and configuration settings. The Olympus Dictation app is the component that resides on the Smartphone, this allows users to create dictations and send them via their preferred method (Email/FTP).

Users can order licenses and configure settings via the Olympus Dictation Portal. Trial licenses can be provided by the supplier, prior to the user purchasing full licenses. Before the trial period is up, users can purchase full licenses via the portal so they can then migrate their settings from the trial licenses to the standard licenses.

Configuring Olympus Dictation App

When using the licensed version of the app, users must be setup via the ODP before using the app. If there are multiple users, the IT administrator can centrally configure apps installed in multiple smartphones. Once they have connected to the ODP, this will transfer their settings across to the app, ensuring their dictations are sent to the correct destination with the correct details.
