Introduction

ICT in the leisure centre The current ICT facilities used in the leisure centre at the moment are 1 standalone 486 PC in the reception area. It does not have a printer connected to it, and there is an out of date word processing package on the machine, it is only rarely used by Andy Cawson who is head receptionist. The computer also has other software on the computer, but Andy is not sure how to work it. The Admin office has two Pentium 100 PC's that share a jet ink printer. One of the computers in the admin area holds personal details. There is word processing software installed on the computer it is regularly used. In the bar, restaurant and shop there are a number of points of sales terminals that are used within the leisure centre. In the finance department, Martin Dolphin the finance officer uses his own laptop, he records financial data on the laptop and also produces financial documents.

* Other problems that exist in the leisure centre, are the fact that there are not enough computers that have the up to date programs that can be used, or printers. Recommendations of improvements of the existing ICT system are to have: * The computers all on one network so that the different departments can access data that is needed, and if there is certain data that should not be accessed then data can be restricted. Also back ups should always be made just in case there are, loss of files or corruption by viruses on the networks. * Computers within the leisure centre that are not used, should be improved and made more efficient, so that they can be used, this may mean redesigning the computers software. * Having software, the computers that allows different departments to communicate with one and other so that they can discuss work issues. These programs may include net meeting. Improving departments facilities of ICT, such as admin, allowing them to be able to access programs that make there work easier, and been able to keep an organised system. ...read more.

Conclusion

Suitable working terminals with sufficient space. 2. Comfortable seating. 3. Regular breaks. 4..That the work environment around them is safe, to avoid and accidents from happening. Conclusion benefits of making these changes to the leisure centres ICT system are, a more sufficient and affective working environment, information is kept more secure and in an accessible manor. Makes work easier to do and done in a quicker time, having work on the network allows departments to pass on information to other departments. And allows the leisure centre to communicate with the consumers a lot better, which hopefully means that the leisure centre will gain customer loyalty. There are also drawbacks to making changes, such as viruses, computers been damaged and important data been lost. This could increase the amount of customers compliments, facilities may be come double booked. If the network fails or needs repairing, that's why I recommend a computer in reception that is not linked to the network, so that if the network fails, the different departments can use the computer and run as normal with the back up data that they have.
