Information System Proposal
November , 2013
There are quite a few organizational information systems available for business to assist them in running properly. Five systems that would work well for our nostalgic record store:
* Transaction Processing System
* Office automation system
* Supply Chain management system
* Management information system
* Electronic commerce system.
PROPOSAL FOR EACH ORGINIZATIONAL INFORMATION SYSTEM
The first system that would benefit our company is Transaction Processing System (TPS). This will help us collect, monitor, store and process data from business transactions. When we have a transaction with multiple items we will be able to use the data collected from the TPS to determine what items sell best together. We can promote these ...view middle of the document...
This will also help us to keep track of employee productivity, and determine what tasks each employee should have accordingly. This system will only work its best if all parties are being honest about their productivity, and may need to be monitored or adjusted by only few employees. Allow all employees access to schedules and tasks, while only the managers can record their work.
Supply chain management system will allow us to manage the flow of product and services among our entire company and our suppliers. We will be able monitor which suppliers can give us the best deals based on our sales and how they will change. Trends change so frequently, what may sell well from a supplier one week might not then next week so managing and monitoring the suppliers terms and sales will be important.
Management Information system will be used to produce a summary from transaction data. With this system we will use the data collected to do end of day closing procedures. This tool will be most helpful to track our busiest times of the year and our what we make on average, daily and yearly. This will help us to predict our sales to make a daily or monthly goal. Although this system will get us an accurate prediction, it is not guaranteed we will always make the sales.
The last information system being proposed the electronic commerce system. This will be a good system to use to have online sales. We will be able to also set up a "buy online, pick up in store" system to make it easier for customers. The downfall to this will be needing to keep up with a daily inventory to keep the website up to date. This system alone could bring a lot of revenue due to a lot of customers doing online shopping more than in person shopping.
As the company grows, these organizational information systems will assist in our growth. The systems will also have to be adjusted as we change as well. As a startup company these systems will be very important in our success.
