Our reporting requirements, one of our metrics, are a percent based on the frequency with which the following occur on each attempt or service submission:
This percentage is based only on the last 7 days of performance.
It is very important to us that these requirements be consistently followed, it is how we hold ourselves accountable and our customers greatly appreciate it. We expect our process servers to always be striving for 100% on these metrics. If this metric falls too low then you will not be able to claim new areas, and no new orders will be dispatched to you. Other process servers may also be able to claim areas you are assigned to.
The system will not calculate a percentage if you have have not reached a certain attempt count threshold within the past week. There is no penalty for not having a percentage - the system is set up to prevent a single missed reporting requirement from effecting you too harshly.
This is usually a connection issue; photos are large and if you are working in an area with poor cell coverage connection interruptions can cause photos to not transmit correctly.
Each day the oldest attempts are dropped as they fall outside the 7-day time period and the percentage is recalculated. This means that your percentage can go up or down at the beginning of each day even if you haven't made attempts yet today.
