Wonder if those of us who already have the little "Neat Receipt" scanners will be able to use them or will the company now require us to purchase yet another piece of equipment we already own. Any thoughts?
Why do we need scanners? There are apps for our smart phones that allow us to scan and send documents. If FedEx is worried about security they could always have there own app designed. It seems we are always two steps behind the available technology.
Most likely it will be mandatory and will require specific equipment that we will be charged an additional fee to use. They'll need that added revenue to supplement the dhpl money they are now keeping. Sadly, there is no bloom left on the apple.
The scanner is a 1 time purchase at $138.00. I got one 2 wks ago when I went to Ohio for tval training. It's a small unit and very simple to use. I think it's great- not just for run paperwork- you can send stuff to safety too.
I'm going to jump on the Purple Promise Happy Bus. No more trip Pak box, and easy scanning of Canadian and Safety paperwork. Faster pay will make me happier too. Now lets get the Folks in Green to send us specific info on Load Ops. In txt message form.
We received our scanner yesterday but the scanning option is still grayed out on our unit. We called FECC only to discover Tom is out until Monday and NO ONE else knows anything about the scanners!!! Obviously Tom should have days off but the company should have someone else trained to do exactly what Tom does. What if he gets run over by a truck or something? That would be terrible and I certainly hope nothing happens to him. He has been wonderful and helpful to us but still, someone should be cross trained to take his place at all times!
