    Yes. People continue to use it to send heavy packages out. Please set the weight limit for packages to under 2 tons. Thanks UPS.

    There are a lot of problems with 9.0 It was a major rewrite of the back end. Things which should work are getting broken. The rewrite was necessary, but I think that 9.0 was rushed out the door too soon. The Powers That Be chose to deliver on time rather than bug fixed.

    What are the known problems with 9.0 that you mention? Can you list them? Thanks.

    Our TSG guy said problems were rampant, and he suggested waiting on all the bugs to get worked out.

    Several of my customershave complained about 9.0. It appears that it likes to make other programs vanish after it installs.

    The company can always blame it on "Homeland Security". (no sarcasm intended)

    OH MY GOD - Coming from TSG WS 9.0 is the biggest mistake I have seen in the external world. I am curious what this is costing the company in miles, time, and volume lost.
  9. You must be new. OnLine Pro 3 was the worst ever. The first 4 or so releases of WS were garbage as well. Anyone remember online office???

    WorldShips 2 through 4 or 5 were downgrades for Online Pro users, but at least they installed and ran correctly. WS9.0 is bad enough that UPS has officially put the deployment on hold and sent messages to pop up on the systems still using 7.0 and 8.0 asking them to NOT upgrade.

    WS9.0 is classic UPS.

    They put out a system that's riddled with bugs and cause way more problems than it fixes. We let everyone install it, it tanks and halts production, then they send in the flying monkies (TSG) to take all the heat.

    I'd wish UPS would finally realize that they're a package deliver company and not a software development studio.
