I don't know why they don't just make a simple post of how many units they send out every week and how many in total they have sent. It is worrying that they seem to be unable to do this.
Get real. This is additional bookkeeping work that is not necessary. Would you like them to send out 100-150 Pandoras per week but not getting exact numbers every week, or have them send out 70-100 Pandoras with exact numbers? I prefer the first one.
Good, Fast, Cheap. Choose any two.
It's a 2 minute job!
......and would not have to be exact just close as possible that's all!
2 minute job? I don't think so. We once got a detailed status about boards being produced, being replaced, repaired etc. as well as a number of pandoras that were already produced and/or shipped (or was it orders?) - and I guess this took a day or more to figure out. Anyway, either you want exact numbers - then someone needs to check orders vs. Pandoras, Pandoras sent out, Pandoras received for repair etc. and merge the numbers from the different people sending pandoras out. This is a time consuming task. If you don't believe it, do something like that yourself - take also into account that you're also earning a living and have a real life beside this.
Regarding possible numbers, it was said that about 100+ are send out every week and that the last 1000 of first batch are currently being worked on. That gives us about two months left for batch one - if nothing bad happens in between.
Imho that _IS_ as close as possible - and I might receive my second pandora within the next 8 weeks ;-)
^ Very true, some people can't seem to understand how it would take 1-2hours from each day to keep those numbers accurate, not only would I and Ed have to do those figures separately we would then have to work together to get a final total.
Neither of us wants to waste valuable time to do it, especially when the next day could see the previous days figures voided.
We do keep an absolute total though, this is monitored via the remaining LCDs.
