Any suggestions where I can obtain free invoicing software, or reasonably priced. nm
invoicing software
I use Microsoft Works version 7.0. It does everything I need as far as my business goes. I also use it to track my line count and my IRA expenses as well. A very versatile program.
Hope this helps.
Line counting/invoicing software
I'm wondering if there is any line counting software that "stores" each individual doctor's line counts time after time, and then will provide invoicing (say twice a month) from those stored line counts.  I'm looking for a way to just store up the line counts for each doctor, go in twice a month and easily send invoices for those stored line counts.  Not sure if this can be done.  Thank you!
New Software: MPTools -- Invoicing and HIPAA-compliant e-mail with just a few clicks

MPTools, a new release from Emmaus, is a set of six utilities designed to answer real needs by MTs and MTSOs. Among the utilities are these:

1. Create invoices for your clients and pay stubs for your MTs.

  • Select client.

  • Verify dates.

  • Select files.

  • Create invoice.

2. E-mail transcribed reports in HIPAA-compliant encrypted zip files with just a few clicks.

  • Select client

  • Click Suggest filename

  • Select files (the actual transcription, not zip files you've made, for the program will zip, encrypt and password protect when it fashions the email)

  • Click Send Email. (In the Sent History, each file you've sent is separately listed with abundant information about it: to whom sent, date and time, name of the email, name of the zip file, etc.)

3. Unzip / zip files, even password protected ones, automatically.

4. Print files anywhere on your network.

You'll find MPTools exceptionally easy to use and intuitive. To better explain things we've posted screen captures on the website, and make the program available for download and trial so you can see firsthand how using MPTools will make your workday shorter and easier.

Free? As in, free trial? Otherwise, I don't think you'll find a spellcheck software that's
free software....
I guess I'm just ditzy.... but what is all this about the software... how do I access this?? Thanks for your patience!
free software
Oh - gotcha.  Thanks.... but what is everyone going on about the new features??  I'm still lost on that -
which FTP software is it that is free? nm
Free AV software
The free version of AVG is the only one that I'd recommend among the freebies. My preference would be either the "total" AVG product (not free) or Norton.

Unfortunately, no single AV software is able to catch every single virus. You have to consider that by some estimates there are a thousand or more viruses being released every day, which means that no virus software can hope to be 100% up to date.
To those MTs who suggested the FTP (free) software SM
Thank you so much! DH downloaded it, installed it, and I am transferring files with no problems....something the IT department of this MTSO couldn't do in six weeks of haggling!!! So thanks to those of you who helped out - it was GREATLY appreciated!
eh? free pc? you couldn't pay me to take one - who knows what software it has on it?! nm
Best free encryption software? sm
I'm going out of town tomorrow, kind of a mini family emergency, and for the first time will have to drag my laptop along to work.  The encryption software on my main computer cannot be transferred to the laptop.  Anyone have opinions on free encryption software that is fast to install, good quality, and easy to use.  I don't have enough time to learn new software or putz with it.  Thanks.
Found free FTP software
When I clicked on the FTP words in your message it took me to the description of what an FTP is and if you scroll down there are a list of places to get free downloads. Super.

Thank you everyone. I will try and work with these and see what happens.
This is free SOFTWARE, not STORAGE.
There is a difference.
But they give you $2000 in free software!
free or cheap linecount software

Just bought a new computer and need to load a linecounting software program.  Used to have MTCount which was free but now it has changed to MTTools and is no longer that way.  Any suggestions?


free line count software
I need a free download for line count software that is accurate, anybody know one.  Thanks.  wordgenie
free voice file software

I am in need of a software that plays .dvf files.  I currently use Gear Player, and although it plays a multitude of different files, I can't get it to play .dvf.  Does anyone know of a free one online I can try?  Thanks!! 

Anyone know where I can get the old MPCount software that was a free download?
I know that it is now part of MPTools or something like that and you have to pay for it, but I just want the old version.
Advice on free or cheap MT software, please

I need a software program similar to GearPlayer, free or cheap. Is there one that anyone can recommend? I want one that would work with the GearPlayer footpedal I have or with easy keyboard commands to start, stop, rewind, etc.   

I ran across a site months ago that had older versions of Stedman's spellchecker for $30 or so. If anyone knows that site, or one similar, please share that info, as well.

I also need WordPerfect, as new a version as I can get, but as inexpensive as I can get, also.

Download FTP SERVER software (it can be found free). Then have the docs
upload their files to YOUR server. There is no cost to you or the doc to do this. Someone does have to pay for the recorder, which I have chosen to do for 2 docs. The other one purchases his own when needed (twice in 7 years). One picks up files on FTP server. The other 2 still want theirs printed. Since they are not in same city, I mail them via snail mail and they are happy with that. I also do fax any stat reports to them at no charge simply because I have unlimited long distance.
Anybody know of any free foot pedal/transcription software besides Express Scribe? TIA. nm

Hello! When I started as an IC a few months back, the great MTs on this board recommended this free invoicing site.  They have a version you can upgrade to, but the free version works for me! I modify it a tad each week, but its great! Very professional looking! Here's the link:

www.mpword.com free version!    Its MP count version 4.0 or something to that effect!


Good luck!

You can use Quick Books or Quicken and put in the amount by hourly rate or per line.  Anyway, works great for me.

I use Quick Books and love it, been using it for 15 to 20 years.  I basically just give them a total line count for each day of the month.  It totals for you.  But my accounts never question my counts so I don't have to provide any back up.  They give me a daily schedule, when done I do my line count and put in on the schdule.  Enter the daily totals onto their invoice weekly and by the end of the month, I am ready to print.   I usually just hand it in when I do a delivery.   They pay within 2-3 days.   I do not breakdown for letters/consults/chart notes -- just a line count per doctor per day.


Invoicing can be set
to whatever you need it to be for that particular facility. There are a lot of options and I bet one that would work!!
Need help with invoicing, first time...

I have to count my own lines for the first time for an invoice.  Before this I worked with Emdat and that produces a line count for me.  If anyone would be so kind as to help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.  I want to be sure I am paid what I should be without overcharging either.

This is how the it was explained to me by the recruiter "Only space between words is counted, while empty lines, tabs, headers, footers, standard templates and hard enters are not counted." 

So, when using a counting program how do I set that up? (I downloaded the Sylcount software, but could/would download another if it is easier) What is the easiest way to do this?  I'm confused right now, and probably too tired to be trying to do this at the moment anyway...


Invoicing program
Well, I just bought Quickbook Simple Edition 2007. It supposedly is very highly rated and very user friendly. Don't know if it the same as Quicken, but we will see. Got a good deal though, $35 on Ebay, brand new and sealed, not a return. This is $99 retail. Thank you all for your input. I knew I would get help on this board.
Figuring time for invoicing...

I need an easier way to figure time for invoicing.

For example:  An audio is 33 minutes and 31 seconds and the rate of pay is 60.00 per hour. 

It takes me forever to figure the correct amount to invoice.  Any suggestions to make it easier for me?        

I use the invoicing report that Sylcount produces.
Is there an invoicing program that will charge by the page?

I need an invoicing program that will charge by the characters in a page.  I was looking for something that is simple to use and reasonable too, perhaps $100 or less. 


Yeah, you're right. Who cares who licenses your software? Heck, I use all pirated software anyw

why pay for anything, right?

Except that is AGAINST THE LAW!!!

A friend of mine got one and she is finding that some of her software, specifically her ISP software
If u need server software, try guild ftp. If just user software
then try cuteftp, coffeecupftp, or wsftp. They don't charge a line rate and I believe guildftp server software is still free.
Abacus is not free. It is $20 but worth it. You can download a trial version free which does not h
I have used this for years and have compared to Sylvan, Word, and MP Count, etc. When you have it set to count every character, bold, shift, tab, etc. It is great and always higher than the others. Now if you are wanting gross lines like in Word then no it won't be as high because Word counts blanks lines and Abacus counts a line only if there is a character on it. There is also two places to check for it to count the Headers/Footers. If you have the FREE version then it must be the trial or a very old version so you don't have all the features and functions.
Check out the free demo of MTStars FlashType. It's free for 7 days.
Then, if you like it, you can purchase it for $59.95.  See link below.
yes it is free....mine was free....why the exclamation?
Another big factor is software. If the software isn't
transcription friendly, it can really hurt your bottom line.

Otherwise, $1.20 per report is a pretty decent rate for radiology.

Good luck - hope it works out for you.
There are free ones out there. I have been using a free one for 5 years. sm
Just have to research FTP server software.
free? We are not *free* - what planet R U on?

Free? Liberal?  You know nothing about me......I'm a 4th generation American so don't get up in my face......

We have a bad bad reputation today....and we do NOT HAVE 60 ALLIES/COUNTRIES BACKING US UP IN IRAQ....you better open up your eyes to the REAL stats.  Perhaps in 2003 we had 60 allies/countries backing us up....NAME 60 today.  I can name maybe 10 countries.......

You are terribly off-base.........even the soldiers have spoken up stating *unfortunately, this has become OUR vietnam* -

here's where you might think of beginning...iraqi veterans against the war......not a liberal website by any stretch of the imagination..


mt pro?

I have been out of the loop lately.  What is this new software?  I am currently looking for a medical transcription job and need a little catching up, obviously.  I would REALLY appreciate a reply on this issue. 

I work for a company that uses it and it's very simple to use.  I edit 90% and transcribe 10% and it's very simple to use.  Basically it's microsoft word with all the bells and whistles.

I have used both Quick Books and Quicken and prefer Quick Books for invoicing, etc.  I have two checking accounts, personal and business of course, and pay my business bills through there -- even by subs and that downloads into Quick Books which can be downloaded into my Turbo Tax.   Also on my personal side that gives me my utilities payout total also and I can then just deduct my 20 to 25% of them for my taxes.   Works for me. 


A place called Webchart contacted me and had a lot of the features you are looking for but it was quite expensive and I knew my docs would not go for it.  I could not afford several hundred dollars a month for it.   But you might do a goggle and see what comes up but the company name was webchart.
