Echo Transcription in Georgia does. NM
Echo Transciption Inc. in Georgia SM

I really like it there a lot.  We have tons of work, excellent feedback from QA, great boss to work for, good pay.  I spot check their counts against my count on MSWord (characters with spaces divided by 25) from time to time, and it is always exactly the same or 1 line more on DocQScribe.

Their website is http://www.echoti.com.

Good luck!


I really like Echo Transcription, Inc. SM

Good pay, really nice incentive plan, PTO, sick pay, great management, great QA feedback, small percentage of ESL docs, employee status.  Only bad thing, though, is that health and dental insurance are expensive.

Good luck in your search!


Echo Transcription, DSG
Has anyone heard of Echo Transcription Inc.? sm

Care to share your opinion and experience with them?  I tested with them today.  They seemed nice and friendly.  The platform was pretty user friendly. 

Is there plenty of work?  Is the pay fair?  Do they have benefits?  Thanks...if I'm offered a position, I'll find out all these answers, but I'm just really curious.

Just Me

Is Echo Transcription still associated with CBay? nm
Anything re: Peachtree transcription out of Georgia
I would like the good and bad of this company.  I am considering and would be interested in hearing.   I have been with other national companies and just want to hear the scoop.  If interested in talking over the phone, I can call.
Milner Transcription in Georgia
I'd love to hear comments on this company. Do they pay well and in a timely manner? Platform? Workload? Any info is appreciated.

metro transcription, Georgia
Anyone know anything about this company?  thanks
Any info on Southern Transcription in Georgia? nm
Southern Transcription Services in Georgia??....sm
Does anyone here have any current information about Southern Transcription Services in Rome, Georgia? I'd appreciate anything you care to share about this company because I can't find anything about them here, even in the archives. Thanks!!!
I echo about DSG
I believe Webmedx and Spheris pay hourly, but also almost always hire for QA from within.  I don't know about TransHealth or Transolutions.
Echo Sten-Tel
I think this company may be in North Dakota.  Has anyone worked for them?  I am thinking of applying with them but would like a little information from present or former employees.  Thanks!
I work for Echo, and I really like it. SM

We use DocQscribe.  I use ShortHand with it, but there is a built-in Expander you could use if you don't have ShortHand.

Management and QA are very nice, pay is fair, work is good.  Some ESL, but not many.

Employee position.  Only bummer is that there are very limited benefits.  I've worked for MQ, Spheris, and TransHealth.  I prefer Echo hands down over any of the above companies.  I don't know if they're hiring or not, but I'll link their website below.

Good luck!


Does Echo have a website? Thanks. nm
It has never happened to me at Echo sm

I'm not sure how many different accounts they have, but I have never been switched around.  I've learned new work types since working there (like OPs), but it is all part of the same account.

I've been very happy there.  I have experience with MedQuist, Spheris, and TransHealth.  I thought MQ was okay...I hated the other two.  Everyone's experiences are different (some love the last two companies I mentioned), but I have been an Echo employee for almost 1 year, and I have to say that I really, really love it here. 

If benefits are your top priority, you might not be too happy here.  They do offer benefits, but they are pretty expensive.  But they offer PTO (given at 1-year anniversary), sick time, and have a very generous incentive program.  They also have much less ESL doctors than I had with those other 3 companies.

I hope you find what you're looking for.  If you want to know more about Echo, you can e-mail me at any time.

Take care,



Are they hiring?  Do they use DQS? Wondering if you can tell me if they have any clinic work or will hire someone with hospital but no OPs experience?  Cost  and type of med. ins. for individual coverage? Thanks for any info!

Thanks for all of your responses. You echo my intuition.
Thanks so much for your responses. I agree with you. I do have a roving eye, just in case, but that would be for any job in this economy. But, I love TT, and considering the fact that I am willing to put the work in to get up to speed, I really don't want to leave, at least not yet. Frying pan to fire, etc. TT has a lot of things besides what I mentioned that I can't put into words. I guess it is just a right fit and where I want to be... so unless things change really badly.. I want my job and I want to keep it! Thanks again everyone for your help.
Anyone here ever worked for Elite Global/Echo? sm

(In Georgia)  How did you like it?  I'd love to hear both good and bad. 

Thanks in advance.


I echo your experience! Said the very same thing to me, but I quit them first.
Good riddance! On to better things! :-)

I am in Georgia......

Would you please e-mail me information.  I would love to apply.

OSI of Georgia
Yes, I'm positive.  After a lovely conversation with a recruiter, I was emailed a lot of paperwork, and this statement was on one of the pages.  This is not hearsay; I saw it myself.  This was earlier this year; Im thinking it was March.  Maybe it is something new, or something that was only on that particular account, but it was a paper that I was supposed to sign in agreement to being paid minimum wage if the client did not pay.
Its the one in Georgia
Do you mean OSi out of Georgia?
Do you mean OSi based in Georgia?  I read the other comments with real interest and wonder if they are talking about OSi Georgia I think Opti-Script is called OSI,.

MRT Services, Inc. in Georgia
Does anyone have any info on this company? Thanks, Lisa
OSi in Georgia and Jupiter
I believe in this case the posters are not referring to Optiscript, but to OSi .. Outsourcing Solutions in Douglasville and Jupiter.
OSI in Georgia or OptiScript (there are 2)
peachtree in Georgia?
Great company! I got paid what was quoted and then after 90 days was given 4 cent raise (paid per minute) which I was unaware was coming. I send my bill on the 1st of the month and the check is in hands within seven days. If it is the same company, I personally have nothing but good things to say about them.
What is up with OSI (in Georgia) these days?
They used to advertise on here all the time but stopped when the boards revealed the truth about their poor management and offshoring.  I am thinking about returning only because they do have yearly raises and good benefits.  What would hold me back is if they have the same ditzy unqualified, condescending QA ~manager~ and if they still micromanage through the darn IM.  Someone please tell me things have changed for the better.  I am running out of work on my present job and am late on my bills.
This sounds EXACTLY like OSI in Georgia
In Georgia any check above $600 that bounces can....sm

be just cause to have the writer of the check thrown into jail.  Go to the  sheriff's office and have them take out a warrant for the person who signed out the check - just be sure to show the bounced check to the sheriff's department.  You're also allowed by Georgia law to place a lien against the business and that in turn keeps the business from getting a loan. 

I'd advise this friend to stop working for anyone that bounces a check, and if they continue working then tell the company that payment is due in cash up front, i.e. when you pay me $1000 in cash up front then I'll do $1000 worth of work and won't do any more until you pay me another $1000. 

Is this the Voice Systems in Georgia? nm
