These areas are * Human Resources The department within a business which is responsible for its personnel, for example, ensuring the business recruits the best staff for the job and that they are able to work effectively in a safe environment. * Finance This is the functional area that manages the money coming in and going out of a business. It has responsibility for securing finances for future expansion and paying staff and suppliers. * Marketing and Sales This functional area's aim is to maximize the level of sales by carrying out market research, promoting the goods or service and having a motivated sales team. * Research and development The department that is responsible for creating new products to meet the ever-changing demands of the marketplace. * Customer service Is a service that you receive before or after purchasing an item. ...read more.

Ict stands for information and communications technology * Production Is the constructing of materials or a material. * Distribution Is one of the four aspects of marketing. The other three parts of the marketing mix are product management, pricing, and promotion.

Conclusion

If the product has been researched it then after is developed they then after have to inform marketing so that they may potentially begin planning for advertisement of the product. Finance and distribution- these two areas work together because the distribution area of the business need to know how much to spend for the distribution of produce. The financial area direct the distribution area as it tells them how much they can use to distribute the produce. Marketing sales and finance- these areas work together because the financial area have to know how much the marketing and sales body need to spend for their advertisement. If the financial area doesn't advise marketing and sales these areas would overspend. Sales and production sales and production affect each other because if the sales area doesn't make money, produce will decline in addition to this if the production area doesn't produce products that are appealing to the customer there sales will decline resulting in no money to produce more. ?? ?? ?? ??
