    Evaluation of my ICT Database, Spreadsheet and Newsletter

    3 star(s)

    I had no internet access so no viruses could be downloaded. I saved my work regularly just in case of a power cut, or if I knocked the wires, or if some other thing happened. My work was regularly backed up, every night, and saved on an external hard-drive. I followed safe, healthy and secure working times at all times. I can load software and save work in folders without help. I can also print, and use the computer network without aid.

    Designing a database for Type a Flight Travel Agent.

    3 star(s)

    Another advantage of having a database is that they can serve more customers at the same time. One of the problems is that it is time consuming to keep on writing new letters by hand so I have come to the conclusion of designing template letters. The advantage of this solution is that it saves time because the staff members do not have to write the letters out by hand instead they can post the template letters to the customers' houses. I have decided to create a database for type a flight so that there is less time being consumed.

  4. Investigate the use of Internet as a method of shopping for families.

    I have selected this issue as some people do have difficulty accessing everyday services (shops, banks or post offices).

  11. My task is to help Type a Flight travel agency to make their things easier, for example to make a computerized database for them so it will be easier for them to find customer records/details.

    This could result in upsetting the customer or even losing the customer. Furthermore if they had a database they will have more customers because they will be able to work more efficiently. Currently all the letters are being written by hand. This takes a lot of time and the employers find it really difficult. The solution I had to this problem was that to make templates letters so that they don't lose any time and they can post it to the customers house so that it saves their time and also doesn't waste the staff time in writing the letters by hand.

    2) How would I have completed the task without ICT? The methods that I would have used to complete the task of promoting the environmental agency without the use of ICT would be things such as creating posters, having some volunteer staff going around doors giving out leaflets and taking to people about becoming members. Also I would also use advertisements in newspaper and magazines to catch people's attention which could make them want to become a member of the environmental agency.

  17. Planning a website for a travel agent.

    Thomas Cook Comment: Thomas Cook is one of the world's best travel agencies and I have researched through this website to see what ideas I can find from it and the details I got were that their logo is simple and not that complicated but it suits the companies name and also it is located in many places so they have a wide range of customers. Also the thing that makes them one of the best is their offers they have on different types of flights to different places and most of their best offers in presented on their homepage so the first thing a person sees when they enter the website if all the great offers they have.

    1.3 Current Problems The current paper based system, is slow and irksome. However there are a few more important problems. Customer's information (address and telephone number) are currently stored within the shop and there is no security whatsoever to protect this information. Using a computerised system will hopefully eradicate this problem, with the use of passwords. Secondly the financial side of the current business is in jeopardy. Sometimes Mr Jones can't pinpoint how much money is outstanding for forthcoming holidays, pending payment and he has to go through many manual files to work out the amount due.

The main reason being that without enclosure, 50 per cent of the growing population of Britain would have died of hunger. But more should have been done to help the poor farmers. So this essay agrees. "The positive effects of enclosure outweighed the negative effects." 1"
