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.

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.

  22. Benefits of using my IT system in the Travel Agents.

    The disadvantage of doing your task manually is that it is time consuming; therefore your customers could get frustrated. Another disadvantage of you doing your work manually is that when you write by hand then you are unaware that you are making mistakes/errors therefore your work will look unprofessional and due to this your customers may decrease gradually. The difference ICT would make if you used it would be that it will have a huge effect in your business because the more professional your work looks, the more attention you will get from the customers. Furthermore, you will be capable of advertising your products in a faster and more efficient manner therefore your customers will increase.
