What you say is true but as I explained to the board member giving our meeting, it should be a matter of flipping a switch once all routes have been mapped. There is not need to delay start up for a year start recording data now! All data that will be required we are dealing with now, with the exception of the mapping. Once those points are identified, it just a matter of plugging them into (box location, stop location for package, delivery location) the past years history of activities. As far as all those other scanning functions that we will have to do, use a two week average for each of them and call it good. It won't be the first time we used two weeks data to determine our pay. After using the two weeks test results to get the system up and running lets say in 6 months use real numbers from then on! Its not rocket science, stop kicking the can down the road!Although there is a lot of Data being collected, we are not Scanning to Load, scanning for non-barcode pkgs, not scanning in & out to route on POV routes nor clocking in by scanner, and routes are not mapped yet. I’m sure there are other scans we also aren’t doing. Mapping can change periodically with new construction of roads & repairs & expansions so that would need to happen in real time.
Too many variables are not in the scanner/computer yet.
