About us

Grundig Business Systems combines over 60 years of history with the subject of document creation. In 1954 Max Grundig launched the first dictation machine on the German market and revolutionized the offices at the time. Over 4 million dictation systems sold since then speak for themselves.

Document creation and new work

Digitization has long since arrived in everyday work. Cloud-based document management, virtual secretariats and mobile work independent of fixed workplaces are now part of the new work standard. Modern IT infrastructures also open up new opportunities for efficient document creation.


Faster ROI in document creation

Back then, the calculation was as convincing as it is today: people can speak about three times faster than writing. This time saving pays off the investment within a very short time. This was true even with analog dictation with a cassette and even more so for digital solutions and especially for working with speech recognition. Our customers tell us here about savings potential of 50% and more in the writing area. And some doctors also tell us that they save an hour. Time that benefits their patients.


Top expert in speech recognition

In recent years the company has developed into a top expert in the field of speech recognition. Thanks to artificial intelligence, the recognition (i.e. conversion of spoken word into written text without errors) is impressively good. We have a solution for every situation: no matter whether you work in the single workstation or in a large company network and also when the dictations are recorded on the go and only sent to the speech recognition afterwards.


Advice and service from a professional

But our team goes one step further and supports our project customers with close service support, project management and individual advice, as well as training on the entire project. Because every company has different requirements. Correct integration into the IT landscape plays a role for maximum success, as does user acceptance. It is therefore advisable to get advice from us as speech recognition experts in advance and to put the installation and roll-out into the hands of professionals.


Course for company growth

The Grundig Business Systems offer is aimed primarily at professional users with a high volume of documentation. The language processing solutions are widely used in hospitals, law firms and public administration. There is growing demand for our solutions here. Together with the Sana Group, one of the leading health care groups, the largest dictation and speech recognition project in Europe to date has been implemented, in which our solutions are set as standard.


Quality – Made in Germany

Even today, the hardware that is required for the system solutions - i.e. dictation machines, PC microphones, foot switches and much more. - produced in the Bayreuth plant. Millions of dollars are invested in upgrading the machine park every year. With our high level of expertise in electronics and mechatronics, we have also made a name for ourselves in electronic contract manufacturing.
