Bob delivers a package, scanning its bar code to record the delivery— and discovers that his computer has shut down. A low-battery alert had appeared moments earlier, but it provided too little warning. Bob missed it. If the driver and his employer are lucky, no data has been lost. But at best, both customer service and employee productivity have been compromised. Moreover, Bob has been subjected to stress that could lead to errors or reduced job satisfaction. Even if he’d changed his computer’s battery before making this delivery, he would have lost valuable time. Submitted by Hand Held Products
