On Transcend platform you have to click, click, click all day and still get errors, change screens constantly - its a nightmare to work in.

How fast is the platform you work on?
Because the platform I am on is slower than the snail in my backyard.
I love the WMX platform. Extremely user friendly and fast. SM
I definitely do not have to enter a bunch of demographics, which is really a plus for me. I love it here, going on one year now!
AIM is not a Transcend platform.
Which Transcend platform, VWP or VR?
Transcend's new platform
Does it seem harder to get lines on Transcends new platform?
what platform does Transcend use
Is it easy to learn? Thanks for any info!!
I thought this was the Transcend platform
that was supposed to be so great.
Hospital using Transcend platform
Is there anybody out there who works in a hospital for the hospital but types through Transcend's platform? In otherwords, the hospital is using the services of Transcend but maintaining their own transcription department in house. If so, what do you think of this arrangement?
Is the ChartScript platform at Transcend truly
ChartScript or is it ChartScript.net?
RISS is not a platform. RIS stands for Radiology Information System. The platform sm
would be EXText.
I'd say TransTech; Transcend's platform is horrible. nm
So are you saying your account has not been switched over to a Transcend platform yet?? Thanks! nm
Which companies use VR for a platform besides Transcend, Sten-Tel and Focus? sm
Am looking for part time editing job, but cannot load EditScript. Tried Transcend, but the VR just disappeared out of the queue. I posted my resume, but just get offers for MT, of which I already have plenty. Would like to post directly to the companies that use a different platform, if I can find them. TIA.
The fact is, if you think the sound quality and platform at Transcend are great, you have not had
many other experiences with "sophisticated" equipment or companies. Heavens, their idea of big cutting-edge technology is being able to have a drop down list to pick from dictators, though that was an incomplete mess. Defend it all you want, but they are not cutting edge at all. Definitely a step back in time for lots of us, and who wants to move backwards, slower platforms, working off paper lists, manually filling in demos, and horrible sound quality, for LESS money? No thanks!
Again, if you think Transcend is state of the art in the areas of sound quality and/or platform,
then you have not used high quality equipment before! There is MUCH more sophisticated equipment out there now, even at smaller MTSOs. Even Larry himself said they are "working diligently" on improving the sound quality. Perhaps you should let Larry know that the sound quality is WONDERFUL - he must be mistaken and misinterpreted all the "MT feedback on poor sound quality"...Who do you think you're fooling???
Yes, SPi does use this platform....it's a great platform, but not worth working for SPi. nm
Bad Platform. I personally know of 3 MTs who left because of the platform.
If you are like me, the bottom line is wages and what I get in my check. I have never worked for Amphion, but I personally know of 3 MTs who worked part-time at Amphion before quitting their other service to see what Amphion had to offer before it was too late. All 3 quit Amphion and stayed with their other service because of the Amphion platform. Too hard to make any decent lines.
Something to think about.
Here is one post from a couple days back:

To all of us trying our hardest to grab our work when it is available, and then still only make 24 bucks a day because of the garbage platform.
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
Full time at Transcend
Full time at Transcend is $900 gross pay per pay period. There is a full benefits package to include PTO, health insurance, long term and short term disability, 401-K (with match). I work on a large hospital facility, I do all worktypes including ESLs, and I always have enough work. The people are nice and you will never have to worry about a paycheck.
It's a shame what some people will write on this board, not just about Transcend but almost every other company. Now that I know the mistruths that have been spoken about Transcend, I will also take with a grain of salt what I hear about other companies. I have worked for many companies in my 30 years as an MT, and Transcend is the best. Of course, this is just my opinion and I respect the fact that others may disagree. I guess I just don't understand the mean-ness (is that a word?) on this board or of the responses.
Full time at Transcend is $900
This is all true but meet one ROM with an attitude or even a TL and your goose is cooked unless that has improved in the last 2 years. There was a lot of politics back then. I sure hope they have weeded out these horrible things. Otherwise, you are exactly correct - great place to work and I would go back in a heart beat but am black listed because of the above mentioned problem. Stop mean mouthing Transcend, they are still close to my heart, she isn't but the company is fine.
Transcend, is full time 40 hours or X lines?
Any information on program called Beyond Text by Transcend? Fast, slow, user friendly?
Can you make decent lines with it? Is tech support good?
To each his/her own! I was on a different VR platform sm
and ran out of work constantly. I have worked on several VR platforms and BeyondText is not the best, but it is not the worst either.
Every company has good and bad. Transcend was just not a good fit for me; however, it may be a good fit for you or the next person who comes along.
I love new technology and work on state-of-the-art platforms, the newer the better, so that typewriter theory of yours really does not jive here.
Every company has good and bad, it all depends on the individual MT and what that MT is looking for in a company.
Good luck to you and if you choose Transcend, I hope it is a good fit for you!
Any info at all on CareFlow platform? Is is productive? Any info appreciated.
MDI-MD's pay & platform
1. How do they pay in comparison to other companies?
2. Can you access reports typed by other people or review the patient's old reports in Bayscribe?
3. Do they furnish PC and/or charge a fee?
Could you tell me what platform they use?
I really like the new platform, but it's always running out of work. When there is work, I can get pretty good lines.
what is the best platform out there?
what is the best platform and what kind of money is "good money" in transcription?
What platform do they use? sm
Do they consider full-time to be 40 hours a week?
What platform do they use?
Any idea on the payscale? Can you provide any other information?
Okay, that is good to know. The account I would be on is on Medrite, which I have used before and like.
What platform do you use? nm
And if they don't get you with a bad platform,
then they overstaff your account. I used to get over 20,000 lines before they overstaffed mine and started playing favorites, with cherry picking taking place. (And don't say it can't happen, because it can and does right before my eyes all the time.) I've been struggling to make the minimum to keep my benefits.
And then they try to tell you how you're going to be making such great money when you go to voice recognition, which is a JOKE for someone who typically transcribes 250-300 lines an hour.
To read this board and find that now the incentive program is discontinued for new employees (who are now hired at a higher rate and given instant PTO) while the rest of us who were hired before November 1 have to scramble to get a higher line count in order to make what the newbies are making and have to wait a year before earning one minute of PTO only provides yet another example of the inequitable way this company operates.
I'm tired of all the games, the insulting of my intelligence with the fiction they invent, and the terrible, terrible program.
And to all the cheerleaders out there: Write down all the good things you have to say now, save it in a file, put it on your calendar for 6 months from now and THEN let us all know how you're making out.
As for me, I've found another job.
About which platform.......sm
Is your account still on the H platform? Is the the bo account? That's what I was on, and I am the one thinking of going back with the post above yours. If so, this is interesting to know ahead of time.
I believe you can use IT with the platform.
What platform do they use...
and are they employee only status or do they have IC also? Thanks!!
Both IC/SE, their own platform (sm)
which they are constantly upgrading in response to MT feedback, works much like Word, compatible with Instant Text, Shorthand, and Wordpad-based normals.
Could you tell me what platform
they use and if they are employee only? Do you have to be full time? Thanks much!!
Platform: their own (sm)
which works a lot like Word, accepts Instant Text, which the company will help you buy (they also have free IT classes and glossaries for many accounts). I like that they upgrade the platform based on MT feedback. Owner is known for hiring top tech staff and programmers. I'm an SE; they also hire employees. I don't think you have to be full time, but it's so easy to make the full time lines that you might want to be. I've done overflow work for probably 10 services in the last 5 years (in addition to working long term for 1 service), and I've never piled up the line count as easily as with ProScript nor been treated as well.
It is just a platform.
I worked on Softmed when I was in-house. You are basically working in Word superimposed on Softmed. I liked it when I used it. If you are proficient in Word, you will do fine.
What platform does - sm
I work for them also and have found the TT/webtop platform to be slow with too many demos to search for and enter in. You must be on Vscript, would that be correct? And you don't enter any demos?
That would be fine. I just need to invest in something better for my MT's and for the company itself since we are growing tremendously. Thanks for the reply.
Do they use a platform or is it
ftp? What other software is needed? TIA!
anyone know what platform OSi (outsourcing solutions inc) uses and/or have any comments about how productive it is?
Got an email from them about an interview tomorrow; what platform do they use-anyone know? Thank you
I head it is word based - is this correct? Would like to be able to use my Stedman's spellcheck and ShortHand for windows.
It is the Lanier CMT system and is a Word-based system.
It was NOT you, it was their platform, UGH
The BEST platform ever
I have worked for Cymed (now SPI) for almost a year now and I LOVE their platform! It is called Chartnet. It took me less than a day to learn how to use it and it almost never crashes. It is the most efficient platform that I have ever used and I plan on staying with them because of it.
