You must work within a budgetary constraint of € 30,000.Existing State of CompanyByrnes Motor Sales is a company that is in need of a better computerization system for the processing of its day to day activities. Currently, they are using only one computer which has Windows 98 and Office 95. They also have one inkjet printer for printing purposes. MS Word is used for typing letters and invoices. The promotion and advertising are handed over to another company on large costs. The company also requires bookkeeping which is not done by the company itself.
The sales information is updated manually on a day to day basis. Two sales representatives are good at the usage of computer systems while the other two are not.
