Azimuth Software India has announced that it will soon open its IT services and software development center in Pondicherry. The company claims to open the largest IT Center in Pondicherry operating from a 10,000 sq.ft. premises that it has occupied in Pondy Technopolis. Azimuth will hold a free two hour seminar about Medical Transcription (MT) on February 20 at Anandha Inn at 9.30am to elaborate on significance of the course and its scope.
We have ambitious plans here in Pondicherry, says Terry Leger, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Azimuth Software India Pvt. Ltd. The Center will grow fast and we expect to have over 2000 employees by next year.
Azimuth will start operations in April 2000 with Medical Transcriptions processing. MT is a very attractive business right now providing a wonderful career opportunity that will be offered to people in Pondicherry, says Leger. All it takes is a perfect knowledge of English and the company will train the new recruits to the sophisticated Medical Transcriptionist (MT) job
Medical Transcription is the transcription of medical audio files that are electronically transmitted from US to India. The reports are dictated by doctors after they have seen their patients; the audio records are sent to Azimuths partner company in US, then electronically sent to India, transcribed and sent back as electronic text files to the US.
The work of a MT is the door to the hot IT industry. After the five month training offered by the company, the new operator will be working in sophisticated, clean, air-conditioned environment. The pay package is very attractive and certainly way above average, claims Leger. He says that it is an excellent job and its is intellectually challenging, as the transcriptionist has to keep up the all the latest drugs and habits in the medical world. Medical Doctors can be at ease with this kind of work, provided they learn a few additional things like the US lingo and the US drug names. For the others, the training will teach them all this and the language of medicine, If one has the right qualification, we hire him or her right away, and offer free training! Of course, placement will be provided to all those trained on completion of the course, says T.Leger.
In the US, there are 300,000 medical transcriptionists; in India only a few thousands are in actual production. So there is room for tremendous growth and excellent opportunities for good candidates. The industry is growing fast and will probably see a shakeout very quickly and all operations that are not able to supply international class reliability and quality will be out of business.
The number of people in IT enabled services will grow to 10,00,000 workers in India by the year 2008, according to Dewang Mehta, President of NASSCOM, National Association of Software and Services Companies. This is certainly the industry you want to be in, as it is obviously easier to build a career in booming industry than it is in a slow growing industry affirms Leger, The company is offering positions not only for Medical Transcriptionists but also has openings for computer networking engineer, human resource manager, web master etc.
The company has selected the site of Pondy Technopolis, where it will enjoy a quiet environment and the new Technology Parks features, such as uninterrupted electric supply and fast computer communication through newly available VSNL services. In addition to the existing numerous buses plying to PEC, the company will have private services to transport its associates.
The company will in fact work internationally. It has partnership with CBAY, a leading US based medical transcription company. With Azimuth, Cbay has over 20 medical processing centers in India, making it the largest operator in this field. Azimuth also has partnerships with European companies and will process in Pondicherry, work from Europe, especially from France. Azimuth is also currently looking for French speaking computer operators.
In addition to Medical Transcriptions, Azimuth will process other types of records such as loan applications and image-enabled databases, using advanced technology. Software development will start for the same by the end of the year. The company will enter all aspects of IT services.
After a successful career of 20 years in the US and Europe in the IT Industry, T.Leger has come to India to develop an IT center. This is an exciting adventure. What is happening in the IT market in India is unique in the world. I hope a lot of people will join us to ride this big and exciting wave concludes T.Leger.
