    Any other center doing commercial release? We went live the other day with bulk commercial release. Fun times.

    Can't wait for this in our center. They're going to need a skid of copy paper every week just for the follow-ups.

    Hey, at least we'll get some good memes out of it. Gonna be some funny pictures of bulk stops stacked in random places if we're instructed to treat it like shipper release. Can't come back to the building with it.

    We've had it for a while now. You have to type in the last name of the person you left pkgs with. So it's not exactly like a DR stop. Although you will receive extra stops because according to them it should speed you up.

    If you are taking the time to spell out the receivers name in the remarks column why not just take an additional 5 seconds to get an actual autograph?

    In all seriousness does any signature really look real on a DIAD?

    no and a lot of people who sign daily don't put the slightest effort into it

    No but a signature transfers the liability for the packages from the driver to the receiver.

    I had a DFU for a NDA that I had delivered to our local Verizon Wireless store. The person who had signed for the package was denying that she had done so. It was hard for me to read her signature but when I showed the DFU to the manager he knew exactly who had signed for it and immediately signed that they had received the package.

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

    5 seconds. You must have some slow writers. More like 2 seconds.

    You'll have to ask the geniuses in Atlanta to answer that one. They make the rules. I just follow them.

    But you don't type it out in remarks. There's an actual button that you mash and it pulls up the sig clarification screen. Then you type it in and hit your del location. It's actually no faster imo. But my opinion doesn't matter.

    The answer to your question is the same as the question "If I beat Orion miles by doing it my why vs Orion's way, why can't I just do it the efficient way vs a non working algorithm a computer spits out that is not based on reality?"

    You know if the receiver/signature person is hot, the drivers sure as Orion sucks, will get a signature.

    I've been doing this for years already. I only have 20 businesses on my area. All signed a signature release form. They are all in a file at the building. I have mentioned it also

    So this isn't a thread about rubbing one out in a customer's restroom?

    You have mentioned this before and, again, this would not fly in my center.
