The owners have specific needs, which I expect to meet. Notorious Roadshow is a company that allow dj's to hire out equipment. Up and coming dj's cannot afford their own equipment, and as a result of this they hire out the equipment. Due to lack of space as the company is ever expanding, Notorious Roadshow is opening a shop in the West London area. This is the main place of where dj's hire out the companies' equipment. Notorious Roadshow wants to stay local, and want to be in an easy to access area for their clients. Because of this the shop is to be opened in Southall, Middlesex. Currently, the administrative department is run from home. Clients pick the equipment from the houses that the equipment is stored. This is unsafe, as equipment is moving in and out constantly. Due to this the equipment is prone to be broken, or possibly even stolen. ...read more.

Conclusion

I will configure the system so that the system automatically schedules tasks like scanning the computer for viruses at least once a week and doing a 'Disk Cleanup' weekly. Toolbars - The toolbars in all the software should be configured so that toolbars contain only the necessary buttons. Rom-BIOS - BIOS setting should be configures to meet the users needs. I will configure the date and time from the BIOS and create a password. I will also configure the boot device order. Data and Time - I will make sure that the date and time is correct. Language - I will configure the word processing language setting to English UK. Templates - I will create templates for documents like letter, property information sheets and other documents that will be used often so that users can edit these documents and don't need to produce them from scratch. The Templates will usual include the basic standard layout of the document. For example, I will create a template for a letter which will include the letterhead with the company's logo and address. Macros - I will create some macros for tasks that will be performed repeatedly so that a task can be accomplished automatically. Macros help speed up routine editing and formatting so this will make it much easier for the user as it will save time. Auto back-up copies - On word processing software I will configure the settings so that it automatically creates back-up copies for documents. Toolbar layouts, menus, templates and macros To make it easier and more efficient for the users I will be configuring the toolbars so that only all the necessary buttons are displayed on the toolbars in software like word processing software. I will also be creating templates for some of the business documents that are used often. These include documents like business letters, property information sheets, flyers, newsletters, etc. A macro is a programming tool that can be used to automate a series of tasks or procedures within a program. ?? ?? ?? ??
