I.T Evaluation of Hardware

Extracts from this document...


Before I started this project I had a number of aims that I had set out. I have showed how appropriate the data was and how it worked. Communicating Information Aim 1 - Poster I need to produce a poster to advertise the re-opened CD store. The poster will attract new customer. To do this, the poster must contain: the store name, logo, where it is, any offers or discounts and when it will re-open. To attract more customers, the poster must be bold and colourful, the main points should be readable from a far distance and it should be clear and relevant to the store This poster could be used again if there is another special event taking place in the store such as discounts or special offers. The poster needs to be A4, in colour so it makes it more eye-catching and have pictures of some of the items that are sold in the store. I will create the poster on a word processing package, which will enable me to access pictures in Clip Art and use different fonts, font sizes and font colours. These posters will be put up in nearby post offices, shops etc. The poster I created had appropriate data within it. I used attractive colours and word art to achieve a poster that would attract many customers. ...read more.


The spreadsheet must have a formal layout. I will create it on a spreadsheet package so it can be altered easily and total costs etc can be worked out easily. The spreadsheet can then be used make a graph, so the manager can see which items are sold the most. The data on the spreadsheet was appropriate as it contained the details of the items sold in the store. The spreadsheet had spaces where the staff could fill in the customer's details. The details needed were appropriate as they are vital for the store's reference, for example what each customer had bought. The spreadsheet was a computerised order form for the staff to use in the store. Each order was printed and saved for reference. The spreadsheet had a Word Art heading to make the order from more appealing. The pictures on the spreadsheet were and only the company logo was added to give the spreadsheet some identity. The spreadsheet worked well as the manager and his staff had no problems using it. The spreadsheet is easy to use as it has drop down boxes for the quantity and the description of all the items in the store have already been added. One particular unique item added to the spreadsheet was the use of the date of birth of each customer, this excluded the under aged customers for example customer under 18 years of aged were not permitted to buy any products from the store, a clear warning message would appear then on the spreadsheet. ...read more.


Furthermore, I could delete records within the database as some members had decided to cancel their membership with the store and therefore the member details were not needed on the database as it would intervene with other records. I completed the deleting of records by selecting it from the menus on the database. All of these features were easy to use and they were accurate. It helped the store immensely as it saved time and it was very accurate. Data could have been presented in different ways and the staff could edit records without having to give the member a new questionnaire to fill in; this again saved time. The process of this was efficient and effective and therefore the store could bring in more customers and therefore make more money. The database did achieve the aim I had set out as the whole process of the database worked correctly and there were minimal problems with the system. I was able to link the database to the mail merge system and this was done with no difficulty. The questionnaires that were given out to customers were given back and a member of staff typed in the details into the database; although this was time consuming it did produce and a good system with a flowing process. FUTURE MODIFICATIONS Communicating Poster To improve my poster I could do a number of things. I could make it more attractive by using different types of fonts and sizes.
