Support software will allow the company to get back up and running, solve necessary problems How might these developments affect the organisation? These developments affect the organisation by the internet and intranet can have a fault and go down, staff would need training Increased sophistication could lead to frustration for employees this can be due to confusion. Training would need to provide for employees so that they can have the proper training in order to use the software. The company will need to employee specialist people on hand to install and to assist with technical problems. Support software could be difficult to use there fore can be time consuming as could need constant training. These developments would enable the company to reduce paper wastage, and ink/printer costs.

Centralised document storage via server would enable all staff to access the latest version of any company document. Replacing the analogue switch board with a modern digital design would allow flexible working from any extn. c) Company intranet accessed via the internet would mean that suppliers or customers could access information regarding their sale/purchase.
