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. ?? ?? ?? ??
