Appian adds Voice Capture for Mobile BPM

When Appian released our last iOS update, we added the capability to capture images directly from a mobile device and submit as part of an Appian task or form. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive as customer began to imagine the many use cases inside their business, but the most immediate response was "What about voice capture?"

Well just a few weeks later, we've been able to add another update to our Mobile BPM offering that includes voice capture and playback directly inside an Appian task or form.

This great new feature enhances the productivity of Appian BPM users by not requiring them to enter information on sometimes impossibly small keyboards on their mobile device. With a single click, users can now record voice notes and embed them directly inside the electronic form. Voice notes can be routed and shared inside an Appian BPM process model, or even routed to a Speech to Text web service to convert the audio voice note to a searchable text string.
