In 1973, Ed Morawski established Edi-Cord Word Processing Systems Ltd, a North Bay Ontario based company, to provide healthcare organizations with a solid solution for their dictation and transcription requirements. Over 40 years in the dictation industry has allowed us to view first hand the evolution of dictation.

In 1984, Edi-Cord was the first to sell a digital dictation system in a hospital setting in Canada at the Sudbury Memorial Hospital.
