Introduction I have been assigned a task to help international dreams travel agency to make their things easier, for example to make a database for them so it will be easier for them to sort things outs and easier to make a booking whereas if they had a filling cabinet lots of time would be lost in finding the person's flight, furthermore if they had a database they will have more customers because they will be able to work more efficiently using a database and if they had a filling cabinet they will take too long in looking and they might upset the customers and lose their custom. Also the company is just started and it already has about 500 customers and if the company still uses filing cabinet then as the company becomes developed and established properly the company will lose out customers because looking for the customers document and using too much time of the customers time and if the company has a database then the company will be more efficient and then more customers will become interested and also the employees will find it easier to work because they will have to do more less man work and they could also serve more customer at the same time. I will create template letter for international dreams because the problem is that it takes a long time to keep writing new letters. ...read more.

Getting information about the travel agency I can get information from the travel agency by looking for their brochures but I will not because it will waste too much time by looking for their brochures. I can also get the information from the internet by going in their website but I will not do this because this will also waste time and if I do get the information this might not be reliable source. I will get information from the actual agency by going to their shop and I will do this because it will be sufficient and I could ask those questions as well and the information I will get will be reliable. 2. Create a database + Queries and Forms I can create a database by Microsoft access but I will not because it is not made for that. I will create a database by Microsoft excel because it easy to make databases and it is sufficient. 3.
