Re: SAP? ..for Inventory Control? Are you mad?
'When they implemented SAP, they couldn't put a box into a truck even if their life depended on it'
Staples... Order online and pick up in store next day... One day whatever the fuck I ordered didn't make the truck and thus didn't get to the store - I didn't know this so I showed up anyway, thinking whatever the fuck it was I ordered would be there, nope.
Me: Ok, how about I take that one there on the shelf?
Staples: nope, we can't give it to you for the online price.
Me: What? Why not?
Staples: The numbers wouldn't match in the system and then we'd have to call those bastards at online Staples and we don't like them. Huge problem, can't be done.
Staples: Yep, whatever the fuck you ordered will be in tomorrow..
Me: Let's just cancel it then.
Staples: We can't until whatever the fuck you ordered comes in, then we can run a return..........
I order through Amazon mostly now.
