The Record Store: Information Systems Proposal

BIS 220

My business partner and I are considering starting a small, brick and mortar, nostalgic record store. My business partner, however, has not had much experience with information systems or technology and needs a basic understanding of the different types of information systems available to businesses. For our business to be an effective business, we must use the necessary tools and technology. According to the reading, “ Computer based information systems is an information system that uses computer technology to perform some or all of its intended tasks. There are many different types of information systems, but the five basic information systems are: hardware, software, network, procedures, and people. The hardware is the equipment you purchase that makes up the physical part of the computer. Hardware may include the monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, external microphones, and etc. The software are the codes or programs that the hardware uses to process data. The network is the connectivity that provides a link of exchanges of data between different users. Procedures are instructions that navigate users to combine all the other information systems to produce an effective product. People are the users who use the software through the usage of hardware.
Microsoft Word would be a great feature to use to start our nostalgic record store. Word assists in the daily production of activities in the workplace. Microsoft Word will allow my partner and I to draw up business propositions, contracts or budget reports. Microsoft Word has an advantage to provide the user to use templates. The templates will benefit us to make other documents that we need for our business so that we can save time instead of fully recreating the document. In Microsoft Word we can make tables and input an…...

...information system. The proposed information system provides for the following: ▪ A flexible "form" for data entry ▪ A sophisticated search methodology ▪ Accessible via a web browser ▪ Simple administrative capabilities ▪ Capability to "revise" data base entries ▪ Backup and archiving capability ▪ Maintains statistics of hits to database records Business Requirements         The IT team assembled and reviewed all data and documentation available on the current processes and tools in use by the NCE team today. In doing so we discovered some specific deficiencies that can be addressed in the proposed solution. At this time, we have neither formal procedures nor tools for cataloging and storing NCE design solutions for future reference. This means the NCEs are duplicating some of their efforts. This duplication of effort is causing an increase in solution design time and support costs as well as losing best practices information among NCEs. To mitigate these issues the following business requirements have been designed into the proposed information system: ▪ A data base to store design solutions as they are completed and implemented ▪ The ability for the NCE to perform keyword solutions against he data base to identify previously developed and implemented solutions. ▪ A web based application to access the database. ▪ Functionality that includes adding new solutions, modifying existing solutions, collaboration on designs......

The de-Vinyl Record Store

...The De-Vinyl Record Store The De-Vinyl Record Store Robin McLean BIS 220 November 8, 2012 Instructor Dr. Hany Saleeb The De-Vinyl Record Store will offer solutions in finding the music that customers have enjoyed for years. The store will have worldwide providers that focus on hard to find musical hits. Information systems will provide a way to transfer the critical information to place orders with providers and in the right format to satisfy each customer. This system can be used to develop many diverse areas, plan, and manage the daily operations to nurture the future growth of the company. Information systems are both computer-based and non-computer based, but different types are needed to be successful. For this type of business, it would be essential to include a functional area IS system, a transaction processing system, an office automation system, a management information system, a supply chain information system, and an electronic commerce system for full capacity use. For a smooth operation, this information structure will assist in creating activity reports, track credit card sales, handle payroll processing, and sustain the store’s budget to remain consistent and to stay ahead of the competitors. A company website will be developed for customers to discover new music from almost every genre and to ask for advice from the staff to locate those hard to find musical treasures. Many more features will be available as the company progresses. In......

...Welcome to WritePoint, the automated review system that recognizes errors most commonly made by university students in academic essays. The system embeds comments into your paper and suggests possible changes in grammar and style. Please evaluate each comment carefully to ensure that the suggested change is appropriate for your paper, but remember that your instructor's preferences for style and format prevail. You will also need to review your own citations and references since WritePoint capability in this area is limited. NOTE: WritePoint comments are computer-generated writing and grammar suggestions inviting the consideration and analysis of the writer; they are not infallible statements of right/wrong, and they should not be used as grading elements. Also, at present, WritePoint cannot detect quotations or block-quotes, so comments in those areas should be ignored.

...Table of Contents Pages Systems Proposal For Nostalgic Record Store Title Introduction 2 Five Potential Information Systems 3 Conclusion 4 Reference 5 Introduction When running a small, brick & mortar record store, there are multiple information systems that can be used. An information system processes any information from collection to processing products for this business. A computer based information system is intended to use computer technology for the task needed to do. Picking the wrong system can hurt the business; so make sure to use the correct information system to fit your needs. Rainer & Cegielski wrote; “Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are designed to correct a lack of communication among the functional area ISs. ERP systems were an important innovation because the various functional area ISs were often developed as stand-alone systems and did not communicate effectively (if at all) with one another. ERP systems resolve this problem by tightly integrating the functional areas ISs via a common database (2011).” Information Software Requirements When picking a system remember to look for software that will help in the areas below. • Sales • Inventory • Savings • Suppliers • Customer Information Five Information Systems Information systems use in a business is electronic systems, process systems, management systems, decision support system, and the supply systems.

Record stores used to be a part major part in American Culture of Teens and young adults they would line up at midnight waiting for the midnight release of the new Beatles album. Record stores where ideas where shared from music to politics. But then the big chain stores selling Records for lower prices and ITunes started the digital downloads the record stores could not compete and store owners were forced to close up shop for good. But there still record stores out there and when you find one it is like a diamond in the coal. I arrived \ on a less then pleasant day the weather was cold and rainy so before I left the safety of my car I turned my collar up to face the cold and made a bee line to the store so fast it would but Usain Bolt to shame. When I walked in the store I was greeted by the smell of coffee and sound of The Rolling Stones song Monkey Man playing over the store speakers with the owner of the store john singing along to the song and throwing his arms up like a monkey. As soon as you walk into the store your face to face with a giant rack of used DVDs ranging from Driving Miss Daisy to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre I was immediately welcomed by john who sitting down in front of this cash register with a sign on it that read “No......

...Angela Cicchetti HIM 4/28/14    The storage and destruction of hybrid charts Angela Cicchetti HIM 4/28/14    The storage and destruction of hybrid charts Hybrid Records The use of a hybrid chart can be beneficial and yet at times it can be a liability if it is not looked after and stored correctly and efficiently. Hybrid charts are used in paper and computer format. The hybrid chart can be very useful and it also holds potential for liability if not stored correctly. The paper hybrid chart can be stored in a few different ways but it is up to the office manager to choose which method is the most efficient, effective and holds the less chances of liability for the healthcare facility. There are three processes that are implemented when storing a hybrid chart. These processes are creation and identification, storage and retrieval, and retention and disposition. As long as these three processes are integrated in the storage and usage of hybrid charts then the charts will be effective and protected from liability at the same time. The best charting system for the paper part of the hybrid chart depends on how big the organization and facility are that are filing and storing these paper charts. Smaller healthcare facilities use an alphabetical or numerical charting system to find the paper charts fast and efficiently. The larger healthcare facilities use more advanced chart filing systems such as a unit number system where the patient receives one number that...

...Resource Planning 4 Table 1 Information Systems 5 Conclusion 8 References 9 rcvg t Information Systems Proposal So, let's discuss opening a brick and mortar music store that will cater to both the old and young alike. This will require loan of $75,000. The city of Temecula has experienced a large growth in their population over the last several years that enjoy shopping the boutiques that Old Town Temecula has to offer. There are a numbers of visitors and local residents that enjoy purchasing movies, clothing items, antiques, gifts, and music. Old Town Temecula does not offer a record store that provides music that is fairly priced and a wide selection of records from the past for the everyday listener or the serious collector. I propose that Old Town Temecula Records can sell a vast selection of music products to those who are devoted to music and provide a relaxing environment where patrons may have the opportunity to listen to the music prior to making their purchase. Our Goal Our ultimate goal of Old Town Temecula Records would provide a good quality and variety of nostalgic music products, excellent customer service at fair and competitive prices. Having the availability of Information Systems would provide a competitive advantage and help Old Town Temecula Records generate a large profit by providing that personal attention and knowledgeable employees that customers appreciate.

Records Management

...Abstract /Project summary Problem statement – improper records management in the finance department . What is records management? Records management is a system to manage the creation, copying, distribution, filing, retrieval, storage and disposal of the records created or received in the course of business. Records are information in any media created or received in the course of business, regardless of location or physical form. They include not only paper and electronic files (including databases and e-mail) but also information stored in CDs, audio, video and data tapes, sound recordings, films, photographs, books, maps and many other media. Why is records management important? Records contain information that is a valuable resource and an important business asset. They are required as evidence of policies and activities of companies (to fulfil legal, tax and audit obligations) and for the day-to-day management of businesses. Effective records management enables efficient and systematic capture and retention of information contained within records, and therefore maximises their use as a business resource, while minimising the time, money and effort spent on their retrieval and storage. Records enable business organisations to: conduct their business in an orderly, efficient and accountable manner; deliver services in a consistent and fair manner; support and document policy formation and managerial decision making; provide......

Store Manila, Epifania de Jesus put up a small sari – sari store which is retailing goods and soft drinks. Eventually, their store became bigger with the help of her husband; and in 1998 they expanded the store from retailing to a wholesaler soft drinks store and named it “Funny Kids”. The store’s name came from the owner’s name and her five daughters. The business started its operation at Sampaloc, Manila in June 1998. In 2000, the store owner added alcoholic beverages to provide all beverage needs of the customers. Leveraging on the business as a high-level customer provider, they open up a mini-grocery in 2009. Now Funny Kids store is operating for twelve years, providing soft drinks and alcoholic beverages within the area of Sta. Mesa and Balic-Balic Manila. Customers usually order soft drinks and beers, including Coca Cola Products, Pepsi Products, ARC Cola’s, Cosmos, San Miguel Products and other beverages that customers demand. Customers are ordering from the store every other day, the store personnel distribute beverages to almost sixty to eighty stores within the said area. The store sold approximately ninety to one hundred cases of beverages on normal days and on peak days they sold almost two hundred cases of beverages while on off peak days they only sold eighty cases. At the end of the day, the store keeper checks their stocks if how many beverages are still available for delivery on the next day. The store keeper also checks the cash at hand with the receipts......

...Charming Charlie In Barboursville W.V Huntington Mall ,Charming Charlie's is a store that came on the scene particularly faster than most independent jewelry stores. The store provides jewelry not seen around in the area and quit an abundance of it. The one things most people like about Charming Charlie, is the amount of jewelry and every color available to your liking. Also something that the store offers are shoes and purses not like most shoes and purses throughout the mall. When you walk into the store they have each piece of jewelry color coordinated and sectioned off in areas throughout the store. The store itself is one of the larger stores in the mall, it's very difficult not to notice when walking by, the colors are very vibrant with reds, yellows, blues and pinks all year around regardless of season. The music they play in the store is very contemporary but played in a lower sound than most stores not being too distracting. They display signs on the windows when they are having a sale of any type. The salespeople that work in the store wear their own style of clothing but jewelry from head to toe. One of the things I believe that would help Charming Charlie's is not so much the appearance of the store but the sale consultants of the establishment. One thing I notice was it took a few minutes, if not ten minutes to respond to me as I was looking through the store . When the sales consultant finally notices me they were placing items on the shelf and ask if I......

...Record Nostalgic Record TBD BIS 220 TRUE, 2011 TBD Record Nostalgic Record Table of Contents I. Opening Letter II. Types of Information Systems III. Diagram of a Transaction System IV. Closing Remarks I. Jay Record Master, We have talked about opening up a nostalgic record store for a long time because the two of us have always been into records and collecting them. You have become a connoisseur and an expert with nostalgic records and your knowledge amazes me every day. Having stated that, I know that you do not have very much experience with how a business needs to operate and especially an understanding of the information systems that aid the business operation from making mistakes, quality control measures. This proposal will lay out five information systems that I think you should be aware of and grasp the concept behind them. I am not expecting you to become an expert overnight on these systems. I want you to know what other tools are out there to help make our dream a successful one. As I stated, there are five different types of information systems (IS) that I am proposing we utilize with the nostalgic record store. They are: 1. Functional Area IS | Supports the activities within a specific functional area | 2. Transaction Processing IS | Processes transaction data from business events | 3. Office Automation IS | Supports daily work activities of individuals and groups | 4. Management IS | Produces reports......
