IntelliType info

I would like to find out what platform they use for their oncology account, percentage of ESL dictators, and how the staff is to work with. I have a lot of oncology experience and would like to apply, but thought I would get a little information on this company first.  Thanks very much.

Any recent info on IntelliType.
the good, bad and ugly? TIA
any info on Intellitype would be helpful nm



Does anyone work for Intellitype?  Please give me the ins and outs of what you think of the company.  Thanks  
They have an opening for their oncology account.  I searched archives and almost all the messages were posted in 2004.  Could someone please post with current info on this company.  Good, bad, ugly?????  Much appreciated.
IntelliType nm
Please, would MTs for this company please let me know how they are to work for...enough work, good people on staff to work with, flexible schedules, good platform, able to make a decent living??????  I have asked several times about this company but never get any response, good or bad.  Nothing.  Archives here has a few replies from 2004, but nothing recent.  Please, would like to hear anything about this company if you have knowledge of them.  TIA.
My neighbor works for Intellitype and has been with them for 7 years. She says it's ok. She works on an oncology account. She has 2 gripes - she has been getting 9 cents per line for 7 years and she has to work weekends. She was hired in working Monday through Friday but she found that on Monday there was no work forcing her to work on Saturday or Sunday. She has asked for a raise to no avail. Other than that she says the people are ok at Intellitype. Hope this helps.
...OOps, you're correct, it is the Phillipines they offshore to. Sorry.

They have an ad on this board.  Anyone familiar with this company...pros and cons, please.


I like them.   Tons of work.   Platform is decent to work on.   Dictators are mostly good.  Pay on time every time, accurately.
Do you mean Intellitype?
If you mean Intellitype in California, they are so-so. I know because my neighbor has worked for them for about 7 years. Pay tops at 9 cents with spaces, at least for her, and she is a well-experienced oncology transcripitionist. You can be an Editor for the work they send to the Phillipines, but that is frustrating according to my neighbor - may as well type the whole thing. Pay for that was 4 cents a line. They encourage you to work on weekends, or at least, ask for help on the weekends. When they can get that help, there is not a lot of work on Monday for those logging on.
I know for a fact Rick (the owner) moved central office to Costa Rica. He does or was using a lot of offshore to the Philippines, and perhaps India. I'm not sure about now. I know the move to Costa Rica is real because my neighbor works for Intellitype. That's all I know.
Does anyone work for Intellitype.  I'm interviewing with them.  I'm hoping to get some info on how they are to work for and what I can expect to make with 13 years experience.  Please help!
...but tries to keep it quiet and asks the American MTs to do the Indian's editing...
Intellitype for Oncology
You would have to be an IC but they are extremely flexible and I know are looking for help on this account.  It is for Oncology.  The company is great to work for and great people to deal with.
Their system needs to be upgraded. It's slow. You waste a lot of time waiting for parts of the program to load. There have been technical issues for a long time that just do not seem to get resolved.

As for ESL, lots, same as most accounts. Sound quality is good.

The bonus structure is comical, adds up to next to nothing.

The work tends to run out on weekends and early mornings, especially Monday.

Not sure why she's hiring -- when there hasn't been work for the current MTs. Lots of SOS's, no incentive to go with it.

If you need a steady full time income, look elsewhere. If you can handle not knowing if there will be sufficient work or not, they might be a good match.
Intellitype or Lofin
Any one working for this compnay?  Thanks
Intellitype good company
I have worked for Intellitype for the last 3 years transcribing radiology.  They are a great bunch to work for.  Pay is ALWAYS on time!  I work on the ExText platform and have immediate access to my line counts at any given time.  You as an IC dictate how many lines per day you want to commit to.  Each month you fill out a calendar with the amount of lines for each day.  If you are taking off a certain day or week you leave that area blank.  I'm not sure about the other accounts they have, but radiology is the best, very low ESLs.  When I first started with them, I had an acute care account with some ESLs, but once I learned them it was not a problem.  My attitude is if you take the time to learn ESL doctors well you will benefit the most and be a better transcriptionist.  Good luck!
IntelliType's method of paying????

Could anyone explain to me how IntelliType's tiered method of paying works?  I have been offered a job with them but not sure I understand how this works.  The recruiter said they pay 8.25 cpl for the first 700 lines, then after that it goes up to 8.50 until you get to 1000, and then up again to whatever amount of lines to 8.75, etc.  How do you make any money this way?  It's so confusing to me.  Their ad states they pay 8-9 cpl, nothing about the tiered payment method.  Are you able to make a decent living this way?  It just seems very low for IC status.

Thanks for your help.


IntelliType...current employees
Would any current employees please tell me how they like working for IntelliType.  I did talk to the recruiter about a job but it seems to me as though their pay rate for IC status is a bit low.  What do you think about this?  Do you feel you are able to earn a good living with them.  This is for their ad regarding hematology/oncology.  Do they have enough work?  Platform good/bad, etc.  Please let me know if you make a decent living.  This is very important to me.  Thanks so much for your help.
Intellitype/Lofin uses ExText.nm
No message.
Does Intellitype provide software/hardware?
Thinking of applying but wanted to know what I might need for them.  Do they have a line requirement?  Thanks!
IntelliType and Amphion use ExText to name a couple.
That ad is for Intellitype if you click on the More Information link, or whatever it is. nm
I've only heard of Intellitype. Never heard of Teletype.
Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m

Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!

Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm

Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc.  Otherwise, the all the 411. 


Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone

love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.

Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
Looking for a part-time position with decent pay and decent workflow. There's nothing new in the archives.
Need info on eMTS out of Florida. Any info would be appreciated!
Any new updates on Focus for QA? Good info/bad info? sm msg
I checked the archives and read all the messages.  Have things changed for the better here?  Is there steady, reliable work?  Able to make any decent money?  Thanks!
Any info on Sten-Tel..not much info
Any info is appreciated.
Sorry, but I want info, lots of info...
before I make any decisions about what comes next in my work life.

Would you like fries with that, Sir? Welcome to WalMart! How'm I doing so far? Do I sound sincere yet? (At least these two companies are, and always will be, USA-based.)
I'd like some info as well.
Would like info
Please send me some info too. orangeblossom@charter.net
I would appreciate info also.
I am from Chicago office and have heard nothing about this.   Thanks
Does anyone have any info on...
Digital Transcription, Inc.  I am looking into a part-time job and need to know how this company is to work for.  Thanks.
Here's some info...

I asked the same question a couple days ago and got some VERY VERY negative responses.  I actually told the recruiter that they had a negative reputation on these boards and she seemed flabergasted.  I needed an employee position and they hire only IC.  Pay is 9 cents/65 char line with spaces.  They have 2 hospital accounts they are hiring for; one they will send you a computer and you will use their requipment.  The other requires purchase of a C-phone.  They are standard 4 hospital.  You must commit to a minimum line count (1000 lines per day).  No benefits.  Direct deposit twice a month. 

I was not impressed and was glad when i discovered they were only looking for IC.

Hope this helps.


Anyone have info on All-Med?nm
Any info on OSI....
Good or bad, platform, etc.  Thanks
Info on SS
They are a very good company to work for.  I have been with them as an Editor for 7 months.  Pay is very good.   Unfortunately I don't believe they pay for spaces, but a lot of companies do not anymore, so therefore, you would have to decide if that is acceptable to you or not.  You can get a very flexible work schedule.  The only thing they ask is that you work when you are scheduled.  For a while, there was a lot of emails being sent out, but that has significantly decreased since certain people are gone now.  Every company has its ups and downs as we can read on these boards every day.  SoftScript is not perfect, but they are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be either.
Anyone have any info on
A search of the archives produced very little information, but I have seen them advertising several times.
Thanks for the info
Any info on E-MTS?
Thanks for the info.....
Do you use the C-phone or are you on another account?
Need info

Can anyone tell me if there is such a thing as a "slow time" when typing IMEs?


thanks for this info . .
even tho' I'm not the person who originally asked. I've also been looking for ways to submit writings, but didn't know who was on the up-and-up (should be hypenated, right?) on the net. This helps.
Thanks for the info!

I recently applied to Spheris and they allow 1/8 hr block, 2/4 hr blocks, or a 12 hr block that you can work your eight hours within.
Thanks for the info.
I had applied with them, but I don't want to work for a company that offshores.
