Outsourcing
 

We have currently stopped outsourcing work to vendors due to a temporary freeze.  However, we request you to send your company's profile to us so that we can have your profile registered in our database for future use.  We will be glad to touch base with you when we resume outsourcing based on the requirement.

Prerequisites that you need to meet to get work from us:
1. Company should be already into MT business at least for the past 1 year.
2. Company should have a spare capacity of at least 5000 lines to start with.
3. Companies who are capable of executing at least 3000 lines in night shift get preference.
4. Should be capable of uploading all work directly to the client right from day #1.
5. Should be compulsorily working 24 x 7, including Saturdays, Sundays, general holidays, etc., including night shifts. However, we are presently receiving hardly 10-15% of the work on weekends.
 
Nature of work that we intend to outsource:
There are 2 types of work that we outsource:
Type 1
1. This work has to be executed online. This is NOT FTP-based work where you receive voice files and send the transcripts back.
2. All the files will be processed by voice recognition engine (VRE). Once the VRE processes a file, it gives the transcript output at an accuracy ranging from 80-98%. You will have to ONLY proofread this transcript, and you will be paid charges for PROOFING only for this job.
3. VRE cannot output proper transcript for some physicians. For these physicians, you will have to someone transcribe the job manually. You might want to proofread this once again before sending the client too. For this job, you will be paid transcription rates.
4. VRE takes 30-45 days to recognize and give automatic transcript. Until then, you are expected to transcribe for which you shall be paid transcription rates.
5. You can only use MT professionals who have prior experience in direct submission to transcribe/proofread our work.
6. Using 2 people to execute one job will not make our work profitable. You should use only one person to proofread and probably can use 2 level for transcription work only.
Type 2
1. This work has to be executed online using our software. This is NOT FTP-based work where you receive voice files and send the transcripts back.
2. All the files will have to be first transcribed manually. If your MTs are capable of uploading the work directly to the client, then you can do so. However, if you want to have it proofread by another level, then that option is available in the software, and you may do so. After proofreading, you will have to upload the files directly to the client.
Who need not apply:
1. Companies who are based out of Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Coimbatore are least preferred since we have our own production centers in these cities.
2. People who are wanting to start an MT company and want MT work outsourced from NTS India for that company.
3. A group of experienced MTs who have started MT work at home.
4. Companies who do not have spare capacity of 5000 lines to be submitted direct.
5. Companies who need one more level of proofing support forever by NTS India before submitting the work to the client.
6. Companies who want higher rates than what is proposed already.

2. As a company, we maintain a database of MT companies. We have our own format of collecting company profile, which is uploaded to our database.
3. You will be issued a vendor ID, which needs to be quoted every time you talk/write to anyone in NTS India.
4. We shall visit your premises to check your setup, manpower, and give a test at your premises to check the quality of work that your staff can produce.
5. Once you pass the transcription test, you will have to come down to Bangalore along with your production manager to sign the vendor contract with NTS India.

Miscellaneous facts that you need to know:
1. A minimum of 95% of your work needs to be uploaded to client from your premises, and a maximum of 5% of the work can be pended for blanks/doubts.
