Professional Apptec Digitel Telephone Dictation

Professional Apptec Digitel Telephone Dictation

Multiple Lines, No Headaches

Phone-in dictation services are still very popular: they allow professionals to dictate wherever there’s a telephone. With today’s ubiquitous cell phones, that means just about anywhere!

However, phone-in systems used to be expensive to buy, expensive to set-up and expensive to maintain. A simple 4-line system for a home-based medical transcriptionist might run close to $10,000! Not anymore.

American Dictation is pleased to bring to market the Professional Apptec Digitel Telephone Dictation, a venerable technology company in the dictation industry. Whether you need 2 lines, 4 lines or 32 lines, the DigiTel system makes any combination affordable and easy to use.

DigiTel USB Port

Simple USB Connectivity

Use any PC with USB ports to create a complete telephone dictation system. Your USB 1.1 or 2.0 ports (with a minimum of 400 mA of power) will provide all the power needed. No AC adaptor required!

DigiTel Phone Ports

1 to 32 Lines

The DigiTel system comes in a 2-line or 4-line configurations. Need more than 4? Use multiple Apptec pods to not only provide more lines (up to 32 per PC), but also provide redundancy in case one PC fails.

Easy to Use Software
