Departments in Reuters

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

ICT in Reuters The company I am going to study is Reuters PLC. This company is a worldwide information company which sells information to financial services and directly to customers. I will use the internet to find information about Reuters. Reuters Departments I will describe the main departments in Reuters. For each department I will describe their main objectives. Department Main objectives Human Resources Reuters aim to protect their staff so that Reuters are able to run efficiency. They need to manage the needs of their work force. Sales Reuters aim to sell information to financial services and directly to customers. They manage existing customer's needs while seeking new customers to buy Reuters products. Security Reuters protect the information they collect in order to be able to sell the information to clients. They protect information so customers have confidence in the privacy of their business dealings. ...read more.

If accepted, they are given a contract which details the wages, sick pay, and pension scheme. They are put on a pay-roll, and are also given a security pass in order to enter and leave the Reuters department. Another use of ICT they have is a database called Oracle to store employee information, such as name, date of birth, and address. Sales I was provided sales information by Kunle Babarinde. The sales department has two main aims: - To look after existing customers and persuade them to buy more. - To get new customers to buy Reuters products. In order to get customers to buy more, Reuters also gives out free gifts. This includes tickets to sports events such as Wimbledon and also other special events.

Conclusion

Anything more frequent than 3 months would cause hassle for the department, and also annoyances from the customer. They use dual-screen monitors in order to run and use more programs at once. Security Information about the security department was given to me by Melanie Blanche-Barbat. Everyone in Reuters is given a Photo ID Pass in order to enter and leave the building securely and to stop intruders who are not welcome. Swipe card machines are used to read the passes. There are sensors on doors so that it is known when someone has entered or left the building for increased security. There are also security guards located around Reuters equipped with walkie-talkies. This is so they are able to contact someone when needed quickly. This also reassures employees about security in Reuters. Digital security video cameras are located all around Reuters. There are also power back-ups so if one fails the other would take over and Reuter would still keep on running. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
