Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS) software is an integrated software system designed to increase efficiency in the dictation and transcription workflow. By using ODMS, authors and transcriptionists can effectively manage and share dictation files and documents.

ODMS allows authors to easily download dictation files onto a computer, and share them instantly with transcriptionists through local networks, FTP or email. Automatic 256-bit file encryption boosts security, and individual files or entire folders can be password-protected.

ODMS consists of multiple modules, each specifically designed to cater to the needs of different users. Authors, transcriptionists and system administrators can each utilize their respective modules to carry out tasks and manage their dictation workflow.

The administration modules are only available in the ODMS Workgroup Mode and will be supplied on a separate CD and respective license numbers. The dictation & transcription modules for clients are available in both Workgroup and Standalone modes. They are supplied on a CD, and a license included with the device or transcription kit.
