    Noticed the last week or so end of day using a bulls eye instead of a bar code. Scans the bulls eye just fine.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Yeah but it doesn't scan the ones on individual packages.

    I always thought the bulls eye on the package label was for hub scanners.

    Yes but if the info is in there why not make the diad so it can scan them too?


    Would save us some find BC time.

    Because if the SPA queens knew that they would have a new target for the PAL labels.

    My favorite is when it glitches out and starts scanning like 5 times on its own.

    Not yet.

    DIAD V also has a camera and the ability for drivers to communicate with one another.

    All of the drivers in my area communicate with one another via cell phone text. We like having control over the information that management in the office gets. And any time a management person comes out to our area to do "observations", his location and a description of his vehicle immediately gets texted out to everyone in the loop. Its like a bad prison movie where the inmates hold mirrors outside the doors of their cells and whistle or knock on the walls to warn each other when a guard shows up.

    Our 7-person group text gets pretty funny when management is creeping in town.

    The ones on the EOD's from the last software update are not bullseyes. They are more like a QR Code. They are missing the little two ring bullseye of the one on the packages.

    DIAD IV had a microphone as well.
    The communication is between the building and drivers. The light was supposed to light up when they're listening.
    They say.

    I said bulls eye for lack of a better description. I have no idea what a "QR" code is. The majority still have the bar code. I don't care how high tech the job gets, to me I pick up a box and either put it in the truck or I take it out of the truck.
