Task 3: Using Resources (P3) Introduction: In this task I will explain why business needs resources, explaining for each resource how it may be used to help the business achieve its aims and objectives and to try explaining the answer I can also include relevant facts and figures about the organisation I have chosen.

Conclusion

As well as these Safecom also have intangible resources which include: > Business skills like how skilled their staff are and how organised they are, how much they know about their work and the products such as how educated are they on explaining what routers are for, how to give customer support on routers and how to repair it. > Where Safecom is located, like in a town where there are lots of other businesses and customers or a place where there are less customers. Safecom is located in many countries and are located in areas where less competition occurs and they get a lot of customers. > How the business relation is with their customers: are the customers loyal, brand names; how well known the brand is, Safecom has a strong brand name and is known between companies that sell or buy communication products. This helps Safecom achieve its aim of getting more customers and providing better services to their customers. All resources are linked together and important, but the important resource out of all these four is financial resources as this resource helps fund the other resources of the business. Every business needs resources to run securely. Businesses should know what resources they need and should know the best way to use these resources. ...read more.
