Introduction

Choice of Problem: The name of the company is Post Office. It is run by my uncle and the nature of his business, is selling household items (i.e. bread, milk) as well as a snack shop (crisps, sweets.) This business is located on Garrat Lane, Tooting. Description of Current System: This business, currently adopts a manual system, for all major jobs, associated with running a newsagent/post office.

He learnt a lot about databases and what types of program he could use, in the future, to modernise his business. I learnt business management skills as well as organisational skills.
