Benefits of using my IT system in the Travel Agents.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Evaluation ICT is very beneficial to use because it supports people in a variety of ways e.g. if you are working in a travel agency then you won't need to search through your filling cabinets instead you will just have to create a database using ICT on Microsoft Access. This is advantageous because it is less time consuming. ICT is good when it comes to solving problems because when a new company starts, they would want to advertise. The solution to this is ICT because they will need to use ICT to design leaflets and they can also advertise on the internet. The difference between ICT and other methods is that when you use ICT you are using a computer and by using a computer you can do your things in a more professional manner and it will be less time consuming therefore you can get your things done without worrying and save more time.

Alternative Method of Completing my Task You can complete your task in variable ways, one of them is: Method Advantages Disadvantages Difference it would make Manual The advantage of you doing your task manually (writing it out by hand) is that you will save a huge amount of money because you are not going to use computers which run through electricity and due to electricity you will have to pay a vast bill.

It would have been easier if there were screenshots or images Additionally I think the user guide needs to show how to use colour when printing. Open Access Click on start then I am going to click on all programs. After that I am going to click on Microsoft office and finally I will click on Microsoft access. Microsoft access opened successfully. The only change should be that it would be easier if there was screenshots or images.
