Diad Vs Powerpad

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by THE COMPETITION, Oct 13, 2006.

  1. HI! I'VE POSTED HERE ONE TIME BEFORE. i'M CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR "DIAD" HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT STANDS FOR! THIS YEAR OUR STATION FINALLY REPLACED OUR "SUPERTRACKER" (OUR HAND HELD SCANNER SINCE 1971) WITH A DEVICE CALLED THE POWERPAD. I NOTICED THE UPS DRIVERS ALSO HAVE WHAT LOOKS LIKE UPGRADED EQUIP.

    I KNOW BOTH OF OUR COMPANIES ARE POURING COPIUS AMOUNTS OF MONEY TOWARD TECHNOLOGY, WHY NOT? US DRIVERS SHOULD GET THE BEST EQUIPMENT MONEY CAN BUY!

    MY QUESTION: DO YOU FEEL THE CURRENT TECHNOLOGY HELPS DRIVERS IN THEIR DAILY ROUTINE OR WAS IT MADE TO EASE THE WORKLOAD OF CUSTOMER SERV AGENTS/ADMINISTRATION (TIME CARDS) ETC...???

    the diad helps dramatially as opposed to the old way,
    every company tries to save money but I dont think
    it changed anything as far as your query goes.And you
    dont have to scream.btw Why do you ask?

    The UPS Tech is more advanced than power pad it allows UPS to shove more work down our throats by making it easier to scan and del. faster = more stops per hour. check out our toy at this link send us your link fedex dude? UPS Pressroom: Fact Sheet

    powerpad (and the old supertracker) prints routing labels allowing for precise routing based on postal/zip code. fewer mis sorts. but printing barcodes takes seconds off every delivery stop.
