Having read a few other threads on this great forum, I am under the understanding that Scan is still facing difficulties in getting orders out of the door following the Christmas break. It does seem that the initial estimates of when backlogs may be cleared out seem a little distant now.
My own order was placed on the 19th Jan with an estimate dispatch of the 24th Jan. I have sent an online query which, to Scans credit was very prompt. The response was that items were in stock and were awaiting picking. I am attempting to buy pretty much a complete system (almost £750) worth of kit so I can build a PC for my Boss.
I tried checking out the order tracking system today only to find out the website was down, and is still down after many hours.
How serious are these backlog issues Scan are facing, is the site down to give the good guys at Scan a breather?
I believe it would be a great idea for a message to be posted up on the site explaining such difficulties, instead of a 'Cannot find Server' error message.. If I cannot provide feedback to my Boss, then it makes Scan look a little poor in his eyes...and the other guys who were interested may well be thinking about the local high street store now instead of getting me to build them a pc. I personally know Scan are usually great performers in all areas having bought before and cross my fingers for things to pick up soon...but a little more clarification from Scan would go miles in customer relations.....
