FedEx Ground – Richland, MS
Received package data, revenue, scanner
Validated package data/revenue
Entered information into an on-line spread sheet system via truck number

Created the real time online spread sheet system used by the Night Dispatch. This system replaced a manual grease board data system. The spread sheet data validated truck route package/revenue/night deposit. In addition, the system tracked scheduled truck maintenance data. A summary was created to track delivered/undelivered packages daily, culminating into a weekly summary.
Several FedEx Ground terminals ask for this spread sheet system to be implemented at their location, i.e., Memphis Tenn. Terminal.
FedEx Ground IT group looked at the spread sheet system and created a corporate system reflecting the spread sheet system.

Created the backend system and directed the frontend for an audit system of corporate billing system. The billing system had 132 billing cycles per month.
This audit system, in its first year of operation, saved the corporation over twenty-four million dollars. In its second year of operation, it saved the corporation over forty-eight million dollars. As a result, I was awarded a $10,000.00 increase in salary.
Next, I was tasked to create a validation system for the H/R database system. The H/R data base was fed by 6 different data bases. Each data base record format was different. The data would be validated and reformatted before entering the H/R data base. The process was real tine; the records that could not be formatted went into a trouble file that would be processed manually.

I was tasked with creating a standalone sub system that would take the raw records for a customer and regenerate bill for the customer according to his/her contract. It was my responsibility to insure the customer’s satisfaction of the new bill. This included receiving the hard copy of the bill. I had a one million dollar per month customer who wanted a hard copy of his bill. This took 32 boxes of paper to print. I had to follow the shipment of the 32 boxes to the customer’s office. Afterwards, I had to make sure he was satisfied with the printout.
