I just spoke to a UPS tech on Monday (10/9) about installing their
system at our location. Here's what's going down:
* UPS will provide a PC, monitor, label printer, 150 lb. digital scale,
modem and software to us for free (it seems we're a preferred customer -
odd since we ship 10-30 packages per day).
* UPS will install the system as needed to make me/us happy. This
includes setting the PC up on the network and mapping to Vantage.
* The software will read from Vantage' customer file and use either the
customer id field (preferred) or the order number to pull in the needed
* The UPS software will not write back to the database - bad because
advanced error-checking and learning features won't work; good because
Vantage doesn't like keyless data entry.
* UPS is going totally computerized within 3 years so you must have a PC
system going in order to have a pickup account.
The system will be installed on 10/25 at 10 am. When I know more I'll
post to the group.
