We have just completed the "backing reduction campaign" phase of Telematics, and a few warts are starting to show up on the new system. We are learning that it is not very accurate. For instance, it showed me backing up a total of 103 feet to deliver one package. Problem is, the parking lot of this business is only 95 feet wide. It was a Taco Bell, I had a package for them that I delivered at the same time I ate lunch so I backed into a parking space since I knew I would be there for an hour. As an experiment, I have made it a point to back into the exact same spot every day this week, and every day the Telematics shows a different distance....varying from a physically impossible 103 feet down to 35 feet. It also does not count the backs accurately. There is a minimum distance under which it will not count as a back. This distance fluctuates between 5 and 20 feet. We had one driver who, according to Telematics, backed up for 14 blocks through an urban area... at 35 MPH. This is going to get ugly for me because I back up far more than anyone else on my center. The quota for the entire center is 12.5 backs per driver. On Monday I had 36. On Tuesday I had 49. On Wednesday, with a full-day OJS, I had 42. Yesterday I had 36 again. My name is sticking out on the daily report like a turd in a punch bowl, and UPS being what it is they are going to want that number to go down whether there is any factual basis for it to do so or not.
