Conclusion

Cost of development / maintenance The travel agency needs to estimate the possible cost to build the website and maintain it. If the company is just advertising the location and details of the business then they don't need a full time employee to look after the website. But on the other hand if they are going to give details of available flights and hotels then the website will have to be updated daily and for that they will have to hire a full time employer or train one of their current employer, which will also cost extra money. Business aims and objectives The travel agency needs to look at their aim and objectives, as weather they will be just selling flights or they will also sell hotels bookings. They need to work out the profit they can make and the cost of it before making the final decision. Customer needs and expectations The travel agency needs to do some surveys and research to find out what customers want and how much they are willing to pay for the holiday packages, etc. This will give them rough idea on how to deal with customer's expectations. Products/ services to offer The travel agency needs to decide on the services and products they will be going to offer to the customers. They need to decide weather just to sell holiday packages or provide the hotel booking service as well. Anticipated benefits and timescale The travel agency needs to set a target of how many customers they want to visit their website in next 3 months or to what level they want their business to increase by. ?? ?? ?? ??
