Does anyone work for Intellitype?  Please give me the ins and outs of what you think of the company.  Thanks  
They have an opening for their oncology account.  I searched archives and almost all the messages were posted in 2004.  Could someone please post with current info on this company.  Good, bad, ugly?????  Much appreciated.
IntelliType nm
Please, would MTs for this company please let me know how they are to work for...enough work, good people on staff to work with, flexible schedules, good platform, able to make a decent living??????  I have asked several times about this company but never get any response, good or bad.  Nothing.  Archives here has a few replies from 2004, but nothing recent.  Please, would like to hear anything about this company if you have knowledge of them.  TIA.
My neighbor works for Intellitype and has been with them for 7 years. She says it's ok. She works on an oncology account. She has 2 gripes - she has been getting 9 cents per line for 7 years and she has to work weekends. She was hired in working Monday through Friday but she found that on Monday there was no work forcing her to work on Saturday or Sunday. She has asked for a raise to no avail. Other than that she says the people are ok at Intellitype. Hope this helps.
...OOps, you're correct, it is the Phillipines they offshore to. Sorry.

They have an ad on this board.  Anyone familiar with this company...pros and cons, please.


I like them.   Tons of work.   Platform is decent to work on.   Dictators are mostly good.  Pay on time every time, accurately.
Do you mean Intellitype?
If you mean Intellitype in California, they are so-so. I know because my neighbor has worked for them for about 7 years. Pay tops at 9 cents with spaces, at least for her, and she is a well-experienced oncology transcripitionist. You can be an Editor for the work they send to the Phillipines, but that is frustrating according to my neighbor - may as well type the whole thing. Pay for that was 4 cents a line. They encourage you to work on weekends, or at least, ask for help on the weekends. When they can get that help, there is not a lot of work on Monday for those logging on.
I know for a fact Rick (the owner) moved central office to Costa Rica. He does or was using a lot of offshore to the Philippines, and perhaps India. I'm not sure about now. I know the move to Costa Rica is real because my neighbor works for Intellitype. That's all I know.
Does anyone work for Intellitype.  I'm interviewing with them.  I'm hoping to get some info on how they are to work for and what I can expect to make with 13 years experience.  Please help!
Intellitype for Oncology
You would have to be an IC but they are extremely flexible and I know are looking for help on this account.  It is for Oncology.  The company is great to work for and great people to deal with.
IntelliType info
I would like to find out what platform they use for their oncology account, percentage of ESL dictators, and how the staff is to work with. I have a lot of oncology experience and would like to apply, but thought I would get a little information on this company first.  Thanks very much.
Their system needs to be upgraded. It's slow. You waste a lot of time waiting for parts of the program to load. There have been technical issues for a long time that just do not seem to get resolved.

As for ESL, lots, same as most accounts. Sound quality is good.

The bonus structure is comical, adds up to next to nothing.

The work tends to run out on weekends and early mornings, especially Monday.

Not sure why she's hiring -- when there hasn't been work for the current MTs. Lots of SOS's, no incentive to go with it.

If you need a steady full time income, look elsewhere. If you can handle not knowing if there will be sufficient work or not, they might be a good match.
Intellitype or Lofin
Any one working for this compnay?  Thanks
Intellitype good company
I have worked for Intellitype for the last 3 years transcribing radiology.  They are a great bunch to work for.  Pay is ALWAYS on time!  I work on the ExText platform and have immediate access to my line counts at any given time.  You as an IC dictate how many lines per day you want to commit to.  Each month you fill out a calendar with the amount of lines for each day.  If you are taking off a certain day or week you leave that area blank.  I'm not sure about the other accounts they have, but radiology is the best, very low ESLs.  When I first started with them, I had an acute care account with some ESLs, but once I learned them it was not a problem.  My attitude is if you take the time to learn ESL doctors well you will benefit the most and be a better transcriptionist.  Good luck!
IntelliType's method of paying????

Could anyone explain to me how IntelliType's tiered method of paying works?  I have been offered a job with them but not sure I understand how this works.  The recruiter said they pay 8.25 cpl for the first 700 lines, then after that it goes up to 8.50 until you get to 1000, and then up again to whatever amount of lines to 8.75, etc.  How do you make any money this way?  It's so confusing to me.  Their ad states they pay 8-9 cpl, nothing about the tiered payment method.  Are you able to make a decent living this way?  It just seems very low for IC status.

Thanks for your help.


IntelliType...current employees
Would any current employees please tell me how they like working for IntelliType.  I did talk to the recruiter about a job but it seems to me as though their pay rate for IC status is a bit low.  What do you think about this?  Do you feel you are able to earn a good living with them.  This is for their ad regarding hematology/oncology.  Do they have enough work?  Platform good/bad, etc.  Please let me know if you make a decent living.  This is very important to me.  Thanks so much for your help.
Any recent info on IntelliType.
the good, bad and ugly? TIA
any info on Intellitype would be helpful nm



Intellitype/Lofin uses ExText.nm
No message.
Does Intellitype provide software/hardware?
Thinking of applying but wanted to know what I might need for them.  Do they have a line requirement?  Thanks!
IntelliType and Amphion use ExText to name a couple.
That ad is for Intellitype if you click on the More Information link, or whatever it is. nm
OSI offshores - sm
That's old news, they have been doing it for a while. They got caught at it over a year ago, but no telling how long they were doing it before the news leaked accidentally. They then had to own up to it on the OSi homepage for employees.
No one really knows who offshores
Why do you think there was a post stating that management knew weeks before this DRC take-over and conference call?  It could be in the works no matter company you work for as far as I'm concerned.  As far as saying I won't work for a company that offshores, well that to me, is like saying I am giving up on my profession.  The ones that won't work for offshoring companies are giving them the satisfaction of the take-over and offshoring.  In other words, you are prejudiced, against anyone transcribing other than a born in America MT.  Has it ever occurred to anyone on here that there may be American transcriptionists who are originally from India or China?  Come on this is 2007.  Get with the times!  Do you only buy American made products?  Bet not.  Okay, I feel better now.        
OSI offshores.....
Definitely offshores
All Type...definitely, definitely
I don't know if TRS currently offshores, but they
have been training women in the Trinidad and Tobago (I think) for several years.  If there were a need for transcribed MR a US company would not need to train them, and why train them if they aren't going to have any work.  Get the picture. 
to India. They joined up with Healthscribe a few years back and are using the Healthscribe office in India for transcription. I know for a fact that they are about to lose a major major account in California because they did not inform the hospital that they were offshoring the work and crap hit the fan!
when a company offshores - sm
they tend to send most of the work offshore because the company makes more money for their pockets. They use the American side just for the minimum amount of work necessary for the client and also to "offset" the client figuring out a lot of times that it is being offshored. Diskriter does this also. they will use both American and Indian and charge the client the same rate and hope that the client doesn't catch on.
Precyse offshores.
no message.
OSI offshores. Someone that posts
here often (can't remember name) works for DR and she says the pay is low, but the platform is easy and she can make her lines very easily.   If your friend was constantly running out of work, etc. that would be enough for me to stay away. 
CyMed offshores, pay so-so, don't know about other.
Medware offshores
You get the leftovers. Between Thanksgiving and New years, the server was done daily, frequently several times a day. ..Their sweet little *team leaders* don't spend well at the gas station or the grocery store.

Good luck with this company. Their work is NOT consistent, there was no incentive pay worth mentioning, and they really don't care about quality - just get those lines out.
Diskriter offshores
Turned them down.
Yes, Transcend offshores a lot
Someone had the article and posted it here a few months ago.
Focus offshores
Sorry to say your information is incorrect. As a matter of fact, there is a hospital that will be completely offshored by the middle of July. I had been working on it for over a year before getting this news last month.
Spheris offshores too nm
Transform offshores

Worked for him for 3+ years.  He does offshore.  Be careful about linecount, espcilally spaces. My linecount was  off  and when I called his hand on it it, he hand-counted it and it was off.  He               owed be $1759

Any company that offshores, lies about it like they did and then
gets caught is an unethical company.  I don't care if they pay better, no ESL, etc.   If you want to work for a company like that more power to you.     My ethics won't let me work for a company like that. 
Will never work for a company who offshores
And I bet I won't have to eat my words.
Medware definitely offshores, so does Focus
In fact, Focus Infomatics is OWNED by an Indian company.

I have worked for them both. Be Ware.
Just found out my company offshores,
Cymed offshores and pay isn't very good.
I have 20 years' experience and was offered 8 cpl/ 8.5 cpl over 18,000 lines, which is my average line count. 
Spheris offshores some accounts
OSI also has this account & definitely offshores it to India
Cymed offshores work and their pay isn't great.

I have 20 years' experience, can do the most difficult of ESL and they offered me 8 cpl and if I did 20,000 lines then 8.5 cpl.

Many posts in archives about TRS and how difficult it is to get lines and their formula takes a rocket scientist to figure out.  They are also looking into offshoring to Trinidad, also supported by Cymed.

Transolutions - lots of negatives in the archives, not sure I have ever seen anything positive.

Don't know about Silent Type, but read the archives.



Every company I've had contact me offshores
and all that is left is the garbage, even had one company let slip that they sent the good stuff to India.
