The Problem The Manager of Illuminate Skateboard Company in Milton Keynes came to me and said: "Our Company newsletters are rubbish. They are typed on an old typewriter, look unprofessional and give the company a bad name. What's more they make me look bad. I've decided you're the best man for the job. I need a professional newsletter with company logos, pictures and clear format. Please help!" To solve the problem I will use Microsoft Word to produce the newsletters and make them look professional and neat through the use of templates to standardise format and presentation. 2. Software/Hardware Firstly the company needs a computer and I have suggested that the company buys a package deal for a Pentium 3 desktop machine with colour printer, modem and CD re-writer. ...read more.

Conclusion

Staff will spend more time selling than on administration. Templates - Could be better but principle established and it is much better than the old typed version. Macros - Really useful but took one of the users some time to understand them. Admin. Staff now using macros for other programmes which is a benefit to the company. E) EVALUATION 1. Comments The main result of the project is that it has introduced modern computing to the company. As well as producing a newsletter the whole company uses the computer for Word processing, e-mails and the Internet. Plans are in hand to put sales and accounting information onto other new machines. The company has gone from producing a newsletter (text only) on an electric typewriter that then had to be photocopied for distribution. A covering letter to subscribers consisted of a photocopied master with the address and name written in by hand. We now have a newsletter that contains pictures, graphics and text in colour. Over 50 copies are printed out on the printer for distribution and the quality is considerably better than the old typed photocopies. The mail merge tool within Word enables a personal covering letter to a high quality in terms of print to be sent automatically to each subscriber. In addition the subscriber records also mean that special promotion letters can be sent in between newsletter issues. Appendices 2 & 4 illustrate the results of the mail merge run and revision of the design template to produce a draft newsletter cover sheet for January 2001.
