What is the software that you use at work?
it is not software as such as it works via Internet Explorer, it is a database on servers and boy are they slow. The problem is there are some bits which are no linked.
So say the database to do pos (point of sale) is not linked tot he main system. Normally I write down the Sku of the product that need the POS and stick that into the the system that allows us to print off POS. but last week I found out I could do that via the handset. so I went around the store scanning the products that had no advertising on and once i done I was told that i had to print off the report and then i still had to type all these sku numbers into the computer.
the other silly thing is that if someone is printing out POs, no one else can't even if they use a different printer
It seems to be the norm in most stores as most use the same system.
I suppose it comes down to costs and like all businses they will try and get things at a low cost, but it don't always work out to be the best.
We also got the normal stuff like word and excel,
But as I said I don't use the computer very often as i only do price control two days a week and even then I only spend less than a hour a day in front of the computer. The other days I am on the back door taking in deliveries. While I still have to use a computer when I do that it is only normally to print out the delivery report and that is a two min job.
