Transcend Services Inc. NM
Transcend Services Inc is the company.  Employees are saying that they are offshoring but there has been no confirmation of this.  Could you confirm this for us?  I think they have an ad up in the Job Seekers board and I am confused.  Thank you for your help.
Transcend Services does....sm
and they just gave out holiday gift cards to the employees!
Transcend Services
I have a question about Transcend.  I used to work for them and am thinking about going back, but I've heard through the grapevine that they are sending 3/4 of their work to India--can anyone confirm this?  I only work for American companies who deal with only American workers.  Thanks for your help.

Does anyone work for or have any information on Transcend Services.  How are they to work for, pay, etc.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Patty - I have worked for Transcend for almost 3 years and am now a team lead. I have always found the company to be very fair in both pay scale and employee relations. They are very open to discussion about almost anything. I would say go for it. Email me if you would like. Sue

As a Transcend customer for 11 years, I find them a very reputable company.  They have provided great customer servince and excellend services for our facility for 11 years.  Their Executive Leadership deserve to be commended for their dedication to their customers and employees.

How is the work at Transcend Services?  is there a steady workload?  Are the managers helpful and the platform good to work on?  Was thinking about applying.

Thank you.

Transcend Services Inc Confirmation of offshoring?

Has it been confirmed by the company on this board that they are offshoring work?

I am still not sure if I should go with them or not. 

RE: Transcend Services Inc Confirmation of offshoring?
I had been offered QA for Transcend Services and MXSecure...sm
but declined both. MXSecure took forever to check my references, etc...plus I believe they outsource and when questioning the guy, he denied it but their website says so.  So, that turned me away from them.  Transcend Services offers QA for voice recognition.  I was unfamiliar with that and their process, but they sent me equipment quickly and they seemed friendly, but turned them down.  They both had a production quota.  MXSecure's seemed a bit high; Transcend Services seemed more reasonable.  Hope this helps.  This is just what they had told me.  No real experience, though, with working for either.  Good luck!
Transcend Services bought MDI for $16.2 million.

I didnt realize it was that much!  No wonder they feel no loyalty to their old MT's!  ,,,everybody has a price I guess.

The $16.2 million purchase price consists of $10.2 million in cash payable at closing (less any existing indebtedness assumed and plus or minus certain working capital and tax-related adjustments), $2.0 million in cash payable after receipt of interim financial statements and audited financial statements for the last two fiscal years, a $2.0 million note payable to the selling shareholder due one year after closing, and $2.0 million of Transcend common stock (119,940 shares). The initial cash portion of the purchase price is expected to be funded using a combination of cash on hand and up to $7.0 million in bank term debt.

Larry Gerdes, Chief Executive Officer of Transcend, said, MDI's strong presence in the mid-Atlantic region significantly expands Transcend's national footprint. We are confident that MDI's culture of excellence and total commitment to customers and employees will help ensure the success of this transaction. We look forward to working together to integrate our operations over the next several months.

I recognized that we needed a larger partner to achieve our long-term growth objectives, said MDI Chief Executive Officer Dorothy Fitzgerald. A critical concern for me was to find a partner that recognized MDI's potential and was committed to providing excellent customer service. I am convinced that Transcend is the best partner for MDI, its employees and customers.

Sue McGrogan, Transcend's President and Chief Operating Officer added, I have known Dorothy Fitzgerald for years. Like me, Dorothy is committed to outstanding customer service, which is reflected in her high customer retention rates. In her new role, Dorothy will be President of our MDI subsidiary. She will report to Leo Cooper, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, in order to focus on driving future growth, particularly in the mid-Atlantic region.



SOAP Transcription and Transcend Services? Need to decide.

Got job offers from both.  Pay and benefits look to be about the same.  Anyone work(ed) for either or have worked for both?  Good, bad, or any other comments regarding either company? 

How is the family health plan with each?  Cost? Coverage? 


Can anyone give me information on Transcend Services Voice Recognition editors? sm
I was offered a job with them.  Curious as to how good their benefits are, how easy the program is, and if the dictations are REALLY awful or just as any others.  Any input on anything to do with the company and/or information on Voice Recognition editors would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance!
Weekly? Services are lucky if they get paid twice a month. Generally, services bill out to their
info on AMD Services/AmeriMed Data Services
Please help me. Does anyone know anything about AMD Services or AmeriMed Data Services. I have been offered a position with them and need to know if they pay good, etc. before I accept a position with them. Thanks in advance.

Transcend bought MDI, so if Transcend sends work offshore, so does MDI. nm
We heard Transcend is buying Keystrokes next. I'm not working for Transcend. No Way !
If MDI-FL is owned by Transcend and Transcend admittingly offshores, sm
then doesn't that make MDI a company that offshores? That's like saying that one branch of a company offshores but another does not, so they are excluded from the offshore label. If MDI-FL is part of Transcend and Transcend offshores, that means that they do.
RE: If MDI-FL is owned by Transcend and Transcend admittingly offshores, sm
Your hypothesis is incorrect. MDI is a wholly independent subsidary of Transcend, therefore, they were not a part of the experiment to offshore to evaluate cost/benefit ratio that Transcend only tried for 90 days (I believe the evaluation process is not still ongoing).
It is not Transcend. Transcend has not had control of
the accounts long enough to make any changes to anything. Maybe your account just slowed down like a lot of others did over the last few weeks. Everything will run status quo for a few months before any major changes are implemented. And give Transcend a chance. It is a good place to work and you will finally have some benefits that you will enjoy.
Could be one of the MS services down there, too. nm
There are still some services (sm)

which treat ICs like real ICs and expect them to have their own equipment, know how to use encrypt files, use an FTP site, and the like.  If you would like to email me with an idea of what sort of work you are looking for, I can probably suggest a couple of places to try.

Do you use Instant Text?  That's your best bet if you want an Expander that works well with almost every transcription platform.

I don't like working on platforms that dole my work out a job or 2 at a time.  I find I'm much more productive when I can download an allotment of files and prioritize them, doing the longer dictations and more difficult dictators when I'm freshest and saving the easy stuff for when I'm dragging a bit.

Anyone know anything about DTK Services in CT? nm


MRT Services
Yes, I have info. The reps that work the office are totally incompetant. They state that payment will be received within 30-45 days of the invoice for the services. It's not. The pay in trickles here and there, say they mailed checks when they didn't, and they are currently behind on payment several hundred dollars for my wife. We received two checks from them in two weeks, and then checks just stopped coming. She had not stopped working or had any significant gap in invoices, they're just not paying her. I am seriously irritated with them. I don't know anyone who needs a job, but doesn't need the money. They state they'll pay you in a particular amount of time, that's what they need to stick to. The defend themselves by saying their clients haven't paid. That is their problem! They try to pretend like it should matter to you that they haven't been paid, but the fact is, you're working for them, not their clients. They need to pay on the schedule they agreed to regardless. My wife now has to get a full time job because this isn't cutting it for paying our bills. Not only that, but when you agree to take a job at NOON, you don't get the job until 5 or 6 pm or even later!!!  That makes a big difference in whether or not you can do the job. They claim it's because they have to digitize the jobs. How long can that possibly take? They make too many excuses, don't pay on a schedule, are constantly late, and whine about little details. They constantly try to correct your grammar when they're actually wrong (wife has a degree in English). So thanks a lot MRT, you people need to get it together in a big way. And teach you front office who deals with your typists to be a little more respectful of their time and money, stop making excuses for your mishandling of your role. I would not recommend MRT Services to anyone. If you need money, get an actual job, because MRT is a joke.

Does anyone know anything about RI Transcription Services.  I cannot seem to find anything recent about them.  Any information good or bad would be appreciated. 

Thanks a ton

Do they have an ad up? Can find 3 other PRN services in 3 other
they match up ppl with what services
they need...ie filing bankruptcy, they will link you with those resources. Lawyer referrals for what you need, not just a lawyer. If you use those services, you get a discount of one sort or another. Counseling, weight control, other life problems are free. Depends on what you need them for, but they are supposed to be pretty good. The hospital I work for has them for things like child care, elder care, cousneling, life matters, etc. Hope this helps.
Ola Corporate Services
