I've been with Opti-Script going on 5 months now. IMHO, they are awesome to work for. They encourage quality and do monthly reviews, with 98% accuracy required. The company definitely has a family-type atmosphere and to them the MTs aren't just a bunch of key pushers. Will gladly give more info if you want.

Is OSi the same as Opti-Script Inc? nm
Opti-Script. Anybody have any
recent info on them?  Prior posts sound promising, but wanted to hear from some current employees. 
Opti-Script. sm
I recently started there (going on 3rd week) and I am absolutely loving it! I think I finally found my home!! They are great people, good accounts (so far) and good communications! I also love Ex-Text!!! Pay is very comparable to other offers I have received! If you are a CMT, they offer a small increase for that!!
Anybody work for this company?  Thinking of applying.  Good/bad info would be appreciated.  Thanks!!
Opti-Script, Inc

Can anyone give me info on this company?  Interviewed with them, was impressed, but would like to hear other side of the story from anyone who does or has worked for them.  Thanks.


I'm really liking it so far.  The people are great.  The account I'm on is good.  Can't complain a bit.


Has anyone ever heard of or worked with Opti-Script before? I received an email from a recruiter responding to my MTStars Resume that I had posted. The email reads: We provide a complete computer system at no cost to you.  We work with the Dictaphone ExText system.  Our pay is based on experience with differentials paid for 2nd and 3rd shift and weekends.  We also offer a CMT differential.

I appreciate your advice..


I would appreciate any information about Opti-Script as far as being a good company to work for, do they pay on time, good accounts, etc. Thank you in advance for your help.
Anyone care to share the good, bad, and ugly on Opti-Script.  I have looked in the archives but am looking for fresh information.  Thanks
Any info on Opti-Script?
Someone I know went to Opti-Script.
I am planning to start with Opti-Script soon, I hadn't read much on these boards until a recent post, that was negative. Before I take this leap, does anyone have any more information, positive or negative, they'd be willing to share? Thank you...
I can't help you much, but to say that I interviewed with them and all went well until they found out I did not have any hospital type experience. I was turned down for the position. Other than that the person who interviewed me seemed really nice and the job description was decent enough.
Opti-Script ... sm
They provide the computers and you can use satellite internet. Been here over 2 years and very happy.
I have been with Opti-Script since September and absolutely love it. It is the best change I have ever made and a great company to work for.
On the Job Seeker's Board, this company sounds interesting.  Has anyone had any experience or know anything about Opti-Script?  Thanks.
I too left MQ for this company in September and also couldn't be happier. I started out at 1/2 cent less per line than MQ, but am now able to type about 600 more lines in 6 hours and have a much better paycheck. Excellent communication, very helpful and encouraging.
Thanks for the feedback! I very much appreciate it!
If you mean OSI as in Opti-Script, Inc., they
are a very friendly, down-to-earth, MT-oriented company to work for. I've been with them for a few weeks now, and I am so glad I made the leap from my other job. Their platform is super easy to learn, the accounts are smaller than with some other companies, they have detailed client profiles, you have one account, and everyone is just an IM away if you have any questions.
Opti-Script is the best
Opti-Script is the best.  I know what I'm talking about.   Transtech does not pay for headers and footers, Opti-Script does.  Line counts are accessible whenever you need to see them, and they are always correct and verifiable, and their software is ExText also.  Vacation and holidays total 11 days per year.  Insurance premiums are lower also.  Full-time considered at 1200 lines per day and 36-40 hours per week.  Need I say more?
More on Opti-Script
You're quite welcome. I believe some of the OS accounts have speech recognition, but not my account. That is another good thing about them -- you are given 1 main account and that's it. There is the opportunity to crosstrain on a 2nd account, but so far I've had more than enough work on my main account that I've never run out. We have another account coming onboard in May, and I know they are always looking for good MTs. Feel free to email me with any more questions you might have. There is so much more I can tell you about them!!
I used to work for this company, I do NOT recommend getting sucked in.....the workload is not steady and upper management is not stable, either....promises are made and are always broken.....if additional info is needed, email me.....

hope this helps

Questions about Opti-Script

Thank you for your question about Opti-Script.  As a company, we strive to do everything with integrity! 

1.    Sending work offshore - Opti-Script has one hospital account that requests the work to be done offshore because of price.  That account is the only work Opti-Script currently sends offshore.  No work will ever be sent offshore without specific request of the customer.  Opti-Script employs QA editors in the USA to ensure patient safety and customer satisfaction.

2.    Low line rates - Opti-Script line rates are competitive with other transcos who have an equivalent line definition (65-character virtual line including spaces, expansions, and headers/footers on every page) with real-time access to line count.  Annual performance-based evaluations are completed with the opportunity for line rate increases based on performance, including quality, production, communication, and professional growth.  We reward experience and performance!  

3.    Cost of benefits - The cost of health insurance for family coverage is high no matter where you work.  You will find employee contribution for health insurance to be very competitive when considering deductible amount and total coverage.  

Check us out!  Opti-Script has full-time positions available for full-time MTs with a minimum of 2 years' experience in acute care  or multispecialty clinic.  Our other benefits include:  
**  Stable Dictaphone platform with minimal to no downtime.
**  Paid downtime when >4 hours
**  24/7 technical support.  
**  Paid CMT prep class and exam reimbursement.  
**  CMT line rate differential.  
**  Weekend premium.  
**  Weekend rotation--not one day every weekend!!!
**  Direct deposit of pay--you don't have to wait for your check that's in the mail!  
**  Hourly paid training period and 100% QA feedback.  

Check out a small growing company where you're appreciated!

Clarification regarding OSi and Opti-Script

Please note that the company OSi that is being referred to on these boards is Outsourcing Solutions, Inc., NOT Opti-Script, Inc. out of State College, PA. 

Thank you.

ProScript and Opti-Script

These are 2 different companies.  I currently work for Opti-Script as the QA manager and part-time recruiter.

Have a great day!!

Opti-Script in Penn. does. nm
TransTech or Opti-Script?
Choice between Transtech and Opti-Script:  any advice?
opti-script feedback
Thanks so much Cindy for the feedback on Opti-Script. I took the on-line test for Precyse yesterday, but am still considering. Does Opti-Script have any Speech Recog (which I really do not care for) or is it all transcription? I have been with spear-us for over 7 years and never had a raise, so this sounds totally amazing.
Diskriter - Opti-Script
Anyone working for either company?  Need info on the good, bad and ugly.
I recommend Opti-Script, Inc.
Their insurance (Aetna) is very reasonable/comparable, and the company is absolutely WONDERFUL to work for. I worked for Opti-Script for 2-1/2 years and was extremely happy. I left them for health reasons, but I wish I still worked for them. Good luck!

A couple questions about Opti-Script
What type of insurance do they offer and what kind of platform do they use?
Opti-Script only requires 3 years
I left MQ for them at the end of the summer and could not be happier.  There is an ad at the top of the job seeker's board, although I am not sure they are hiring right now. 
opti-script peoplesupport etransplus
Hi guys -- hope its good - I have been at the old "spear us" company, and was thinking about either optiscript, people support (which I actually applied at, but have not heard back), and etransplus.  I have heard good and bad about keystrokes.  How about these -- let me know if you positives or negatives  thx
Opti-Script versus Northeast Transcription Inc.
I have interviewed with each place, and have some likes and dislikes about each. Does anybody out there work for either, or know about either that would help me make a decision? I am leaving Spheris and am concerned about jumping from the frying pan into the fire, so anyone out there that knows anything I would certainly appreciate your 2 cents or more!

Thank you all so much for this board, it has helped me a LOT over the very confusing and frustrating few weeks!
