Voice dialing: there has to be a better way...

Voice dialing in the current iDrive iteration seems to be pretty clunky. I'm hoping that I'm doing it wrong and someone here can show me a better way to go about it.

In my prior car, a 2008 E93 328i, here's how I would do it:
Me: Call Parents, Home.
Car: Dialing...
In my 2012 E92 M3, here's what I have to do:
Me: Phonebook
Car: Say the name of the person that you want to call.
Me: Parents.
Car: Do you want to call Parents?
Me: Yes.
Car: This entry has multiple numbers, say the one that you want to call.
Me: One.
Car: Entry one?
Me: Yes.
Car: Dialing...
There has got to be a better way to do this... Can anyone help me out?
