I don't want to waste my time testing for another crap company.  I've been invited to test with all three.  FutureNet has no work again this morning... I am SO done with them!!  It should not be this hard to make $100/day in this business...  even part time.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Transolutions vs Amphion

Does anyone have an opinion of which is better to work for? 

Well, I know more than most and its not stable right now
same here, at least it would be stable
Stable accounts

I  have had my own business for 20+ years, small but my own with stable accounts from the day I started to my most recent being with me for almost 6 years.  And, I do average above $1000 a week.  So call me a liar but will match tax forms with you anyday.  A lot of blood, sweat and tears has gone into this. Have 2 IC's that work for me part-time also. 

Sorry you are so bitter and not found your place yet.  Maybe you need to go out and try to get your own accounts. 


I'd have to disagree. It is not a stable platform by
If it was such a stable platform, why would technical support have to issue a guesstimate time line as to when the bugs would be worked out?  Do people normally tell you that all will be fixed in months when there is nothing to fix?
Great stable company. SM
Go for it.  You wont be disappointed.  Very fair company.  Pay is great.  Owner is great.  Pay ALWAYS on time, if not early.  No complaints at all.
Ask them to try you on dial-up. It may be slow but if it is stable, it should work. sm
I do know that there are a few versions of Meditech, Chartscript and ExText that do not work with dial-up, but that still leaves a lot of options open! Good luck to you!
good for you; those kinds of companies will never be stable
FC is a great company, very stable, lots of work. sm
The platform is simple and easy to use. You have a choice of transcribing in Word or WP5.1. My only negative is the sound quality. QA is very helpful and responsive. The people are very, very nice. I'm a bit of a perfectionist but still manage to rack up the lines pretty well. Pay is direct deposit, never late, many times early. On a scale of 1-10, I give this company a 9.

I recommend this company to seasoned MTs.

Satellite is not a stable connection. Not in terms of HIPAA or sm
privacy but in terms of stability of speed and signal. Because the signal waxes and wanes, it can cause disruptions in connection. They might not seem evident when you are surfing the net or checking your bank balance, but a VPN connection such as one that is needed to do transcription for many hospitals needs a solid, stable connection. This connection can be fast or slow, as long as it does not go faster and then slower and then faster and then out and then in. A satellite signal does this constantly, by the second, and it causes disruption in the flow.

Need detailed info on DSG. It is stable work for a high producer? nm
Keystrokes accounts are stable. The company treats every customer
like their only. No accounts have been lost. I have been there for 3-1/2 years. Same accounts plus double since I started.
Accupro offers IC and they are a great company.
Try AccuPro
They are looking for MTs experienced in the Basic Four, as well as radiology. MPWord is the program that is used for transcription, which is similar to MSWord, but with more bells and whistles. If interested, email me: rlella@earthlink.net
Anyone ever work for Accupro out of Lenexa?  I used to but was wondering if she is still hiring ICs.
I worked for Accupro for about 6 years and really enjoyed working for her, but I needed insurance and needed steady work.
Is anyone familiar with this company?  They have 2 ads on Job Board.  I did a search but nothing came up.  Need pros and cons, please.  Thanks.
Can anyone tell me how to apply to Accupro?  I cannot find a web site.  Have heard good things about them but if anyone has anything to add, positive or negative, I'd appreciate it.  Thank you.

Current AccuPro transcriptionists, how do you like working for this company, pros and cons, please.  They have an ad on the job board for oncology and before I test with them, I would like to know what you think.


Accupro ad
You would think that the person placing the ad would at least PROOFREAD the ad!! I would tend to think that is less than professional to place an ad that has spelling errors. Anyway, what is an appicant? LOL
Is this company in Kansas?
Does anyone currently work for AccuPro?  I see they have a new ad here on MT Stars for a combination position of MT/VR for Hematology/Oncology. I would really like to hear from anyone who might specifically work on this account.  They state it is predominantly VR work with some transcription, so I would like to know if you like working for this company and if you can make a decent salary doing this combination. You hear so many bad things here about VR work and I have never done it before, so if anyone who currently works for AccuPro could tell me how you like the company, etc. before I apply, I would greatly appreciate any info.  I searched the archieves, but did not find anything recently posted.  Thanks so much!
AccuPro ???
How come no one ever answers any questions about this company?  I have seen their job ad(s) several times but no one ever answers.  I checked archives and found nothing current...only posts from 2006, 2007 and 2008.  Someone must know something about them!
Come on folks, I'm with Mel who also posted on AccuPro ~ does no one who reads this forum work for these people?  I posted a previous note asking about them and got nothing, just as Mel did!  Surely someone knows something about this company or works for them. There is nothing recent in the Archieves and AccuPro is currently running an ad for Hem/Onc, so I would like to know if you work for them do you like it, have enough work, is it clinic or hospital, etc.  Any info anyone has would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Nice to work for. Pay was always on time. Work was always available on hospital account I was on. Cannot comment on Hem/Onc.
Anyone know anything about Cymed or Accupro? sm

I love the company I'm with, but after a month of fighting to get my lines, I decided it may be time to look around, at least get something part-time and maybe work into full-time if the company is decent, as in, has direct deposit, pays on time, pays a decent wage for my many years of experience, doesn't dock for blanks, has accounts that are not 90% ESLs, etc.


Any input would be appreciated.  Thanks! 

Any info on Accupro?

Another try for info on AccuPro

I posted a few days ago asking for current information regarding this company and no one answered my post, thought I would try 1 more time. Would like pros and cons.  I took their test today and got an e-mail that I passed, and they will call me tomorrow to discuss further.  I did search and found some posts but most are 1-2 years old.  Please reply if you have any knowledge of this company and what it is like to work for them.

If you would rather e-mail me, that's okay too!

Thank you for your time. 

AccuPro Services

Does anyone know anything about this company?  I don't think I have ever seen them mentioned on this site.  Pros and cons, please.  Also, do you know where they are located?  Thanks.

AccuPro Services
Looking for current information regarding this company.  Pros and cons please.  Thanks for your time.
Ask Accupro. The owners of that company
I work for AccuPro.... love them!!
You won't be sorry there, I don't think. If you'd like to email me, I'd be glad to chat with you. Let me know if you want my email address.
Any current info on AccuPro?
enough work, pay on time, anything you would like to share about this company would be greatly appreciated. TIA
Accupro--Seeking opinions

The response time has been slow so far.  I received testing materials directly from the recruiter via email 2 weeks after submitting my resume.  I returned the tests within 24 hours and waited another 2 weeks for a response.  I inquired via email and it took another week for her to respond.  I'm wondering if all this improves upon employment.  What are they like to work for?  Platform?  Communication?  Benefits?  Do they respond to employee questions in a timely manner?

TIA for answering.

Accupro actually looks like a good deal
even if they require hours for IC.  Any information on ths company?
Current Amphion employee...I'm very happy. The part of Amphion I work with has no faxes, lists,s
minor demographic work..superb QA and feedback.  Fellow MTs on same account are more than willing to help and now they also have mentor program.  My pay is what they said.  They do have different pay for different levels. 
It definitely can be frustrating. I tested for Accupro a couple of weeks ago, sm

and there were several long reports to type, yet I never received the courtesy of a response.  They were great guns at first, sending me info about the company, telling me how impressive my resume is, etc., and after the written test, I heard back immediately, but then, after investing several hours into their written test .. *poof* .. nada.  I don't know that I aced it, but after 25+ years of being an MT, I didn't think I did so awful that it would not even merit a reply.   Such is life ...

On the flip side, I do realize that companies receive 100s of applications when they run an ad, and so I try to be patient and realize that I can just be lost in the shuffle somtimes.  I perhaps am not aggressive enough, because I do not email or call if they drop the ball.  There are lots of other companies out there.  

Meridian and Transolutions.. ESPECIALLY Transolutions
TransTech for many reasons, good pay, stable company, good benefits
and flexible.
I have looked around the last 6 months and have found nothing better. Have turned down numerous jobs, and have finally decided to stay put. The better insurance plans were announced and even moreso than ever, I am staying put, and my paycheck is happy about that because it is getting better every day. Good luck to you.
I have been with Transolutions for over 2-1/2 years and cannot speak highly enough about them. They have stuck with me thru thick and thin due to personal health issues; I am averaging $18-$20 an hour; the medical insurance is the best I've ever had; they spend time and money helping MTs get proficient and productive and grow in their careers, etc. They are offering a referral bonus through September 21 for anyone I refer and is hired. If you are considering this company, please drop me a line, and I'll answer all your questions. I would appreciate the opportunity for the referral. Thanks! Donna The website is www.transolutions.net

Well, my dear, MQ has thousands of MTs, some of whom have been there over 10 years - but it doesn't sound like they do anything right!!!!!!! 

If that company is a good fit for you, more power to you.  But, just because someone else didn't like them doesn't mean it was a "personality conflict" or "Degree of professionalism" issue. 

If you really want referrals, you might try being a little less condescending. 

If anyone is working for this company, please email me and tell me what it is like to connect with them, etc.  thanks
Been there almost 2 years - very happy. I am former MQ'r, always astounded when MQ/Spheris types say they think there is no better place to work than those 2 crap companies. Transolutions has paid time off, (I'm part-time and accrue hours). They have paid holidays off -- you will be required to work holidays and alternate, i.e. you work July 4, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day one year, then the next you work New Year's Day, Labor Day, Christmas -- I may have mixed them up, but in any event, you get paid holiday/bonus for working holidays, they PROVIDE your equipment even if you're part time, they reimburse your phone line, they have you set it up with a specific phone company -- I forget its name. But they do pay it. If you are FT, they have health, dental, I believe life ins. They will reimburse for AAMT CMT exam after you pass it (Full time). Also, referral bonus if you recommend someone and they get hired. Discounts on all reference books/materials you buy through them (I think 40%), you have mandatory 1 weekend day with weekend shift differential, and that's just off top of my head. Oh, cash bonuses on your anniversary every year you are with them, which go up each year. Their standards are higher than anyplace I've ever worked, but that is a good thing. I think quality should count for more than it does with previously mentioned MTSOs. I think you would like them. Oh, and PAID training for 1 week before you actually start first official paid day with them. A guaranteed line rate during probationary period. Also, plenty of work. Also, you are considered FT at 32 hrs/wk which means you are eligible for full complement of bennies. Let folks say Spheris, MQ are as good as it gets -- that just means more GOOD MT/MLS jobs for the enlightened among us! Go for it!
Transolutions QA


I just left the company for various reasons, but I did take umbrage with the recent QA changes.  I have been an MT for less than a year.  The lowest QA score I received was a 95, and I was horrified at that.  It does make me feel a bit better to know a person with 20 years experience was having a tough time, too.


Transolutions..Thank you..sm
In spite of the fact that I quit them after 3 weeks, they did pay me the signon bonus. I appreciate that!

Does anyone have any information on Transolutions?  I remember a while back hearing that the platform was a little outdated.  Has that changed at all?  Any other opinions?


The platform is not a little outdated, it is a lot outdated! The office staff treat you like you are in kindergarten. Also, the benefits are good but are very expensive. Save yourself the trouble and look elsewhere.

Is anyone working for Transolutions who has been affected by the recent change to QA guidelines, on-hold percentages, and possible resultant lower pay?

Transolutions QA
Yes, I have been affected. It is scaring me. I have been a 98%, 99% employee for 5 years and now I feel like I am under the gun. Also, have you been having a problem with no work? The place has not been the same since Cynthia Jones left.
Transolutions QA
Yes, I am being affected by lower pay. It is very demoralizing. I am thinking of going back to school, because transcription has become a dead end job.
