OTS

I left a couple years ago, just as OTS was rolling out. Has it worked? Has it gotten better? Are there still multiple clipboards for silly stuff that’s not helpful to anyone in the real world?

The name is changing to store processing or something just as stupid.

OTS is a system and as such it is born it evolves and it dies getting replaced by something else. Some systems can last a 1000 years Feudalism then transition into Capitalism. In my opinion from what I have seen OTS is struggling it is hardly followed in my store as well as others and is now getting rebranded to re start its life but I think within the next 10 years maybe sooner it will be gone.

I think it's true purpose was to push highly paid veteran TMs out the door and it worked.

OTS is a process, not a living thing. People, pit one store against another. People make it competitive and that has been a long standing issue with some stores within the company (primarily I feel, in areas with a smaller cluster of stores). Why some stores choose to cut off their nose to spite their face I'll never understand. You do have very valid points. Labor wise it is very inefficient unless you have the budget to support it.

All it does is take away from customer service and actually filling the grocery aisles because you're taking away your best team members to do meaningless paperwork and b—s—. OTS means order to shelf and it's anything but that , it's an unfair competition that pits one store against another and 95% of the stores are cheating on their Sunday scan so what sense is this really serve besides a reason for regional and corporate lackeys to keep their jobs

Yes, OTS is still a thing. Yes, the clipboards still exist and yes, it has served its purpose. Organize team processes and back stock maintenance so ordering, inventory and "truck to floor" can run more efficiently than pre-Amazon especially for those stores with Amazon Shoppers and the upcoming "Alexa in the Aisles". I'm a TM not some corporate schill annoyed with all the OTS hatorade. Yea, OTS is a royal a**-pain but until your store gets rid of it.... Honestly though, compared to the toxic environments I'm hearing that a continually rising number of TMs are dealing with in my travels, if OTS is your biggest issue...get over it.

Same pointless busy work with printing out things that will never be looked at or touched again.
