When a shopper is trying to build a route, she (or he!) needs responsive schedulers.
I did several shops for Pete. Always a pleasure. As said above, always responsive to communications, always understanding/patient. I remember taking the first photos for a shop for him on my cell phone. When I got home to do the report, I could not for the life of me figure out how to get that photo off my phone onto my PC. E-mailed Pete, and he said to just e-mail it to him and he'd put it in the report for me! Saved the shop!
Unfortunately, two or three years later, and I still have not learned how to get photos off my phone (tech dinosaur here). And I am no longer really motivated to learn, because I haven't done those shops again since they changed schedulers for them. I just continue to accept shops that I can use my digital camera for. None of the schedulers since Pete left that client has been responsive to e-mails, offers, or bids. When a shopper is trying to build a route, she (or he!) needs responsive schedulers.
Pete's tops in my book.
Wish I had a list of the clients you handle now, Pete! I would actively search for them on the job boards, LOL!!!
"I know you say you don't really want to learn but it is so easy to get phone pictures on report.
Open report on phone, click upload, it takes me to area on my phone where I select photo gallary then click picture, then click done. Photo uploads into report. I haven't transfered photos to my computer for years. "
Oh, it's not that I don't WANT to learn. I just cannot. I cannot access websites on my phone, so opening the report on the phone isn't possible. Also, many of the rural locations I shop don't have networks, so can't use apps (or browsers).
My hands are severely arthritic, which makes typing on the phone a real problem -- even if by some miracle I could get the app and/or website to function.
