Main aims and functions of Buckingham Bingo.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

AVCE ICT Unit 2 - ICT Serving Organisations Main aims and functions of the Organisation (E1) The organisation that I have chosen for this report is the Buckingham Bingo. The reason that I have chosen this organisation is because I work there and it also has many ICT provisions. The ICT provisions vary from huge databases to computerised tills to huge spreadsheets. The main function of this organisation is basically a gambling organisation. The aim of the organisation is to make as much money as it possibly can. The bingo hall it's self allows member's of the bingo to basically come in and play bingo, the organisation then allows the customer's to gamble, eat, drink and most of all socialise with all the other bingo members. The aim of the organisation is to make money, so the hall has many features to make money and achieve the main aim of the organisation. These features include: - * Before the customer enters the hall they have to pay an entrance fee of 80 pence. * If the member wants to park their car in the bingo's secure car park they have to pay a fee of �5. * Fruit Machines, which allow the customer's to gamble. * A bingo hall which allows the customer's to play traditional bingo (played in a bingo book.) and cash bingo (which is played on electronic boards, this is also all controlled by computer.). * A buffet, which allows customer's to purchase food. * A bar which allows customers to consume alcohol and soft drinks. The features shown above is just a short list of how the organisation meet's its aim and make's money. Function of each Department (E1) There are many departments in this organisation that keep it running and meeting its main aim. Here is a table to show the name of the Department and its functions :- Name of Department Function Office * The office is the so called brain of the organisation, this is were all the decisions happen and new ideas of how the organisation can reach its aim. ...read more.

This spreadsheet is used to log how many books have been sold in each interval. When the spreadsheets knows how many books have been sold it then works out the advised prize money for each page. * The spreadsheet also works out at the end of each week how much money has been made and how many books have been sold. Therefore the member of staff knows whether they need to re-order books and if they need to increase the price because they are not making a lot of money. Point of sale Terminal * This is basically used to store all of the money until it is cashed up and handed in to the office. * It is like a smaller version of a PC, it has a screen, a keyboard and a draw. The member of staff selects the items, which have been chosen by the customer on the keyboard. The CPU then calculates how much the total cost is and then produce's the cost on the screen. The draw then open's and the member of staff place's the money in the draw and then issue's the customer with change if needed. * With this point of sale terminal being on booksales there will not be that many item's on the keyboard. Buffet & Bar Dish-washer * This may not look like an ICT provision but it is. It is used to clean dishes and cups on the buffet and glasses on the bar. * The member of staff place's the cutlery, plate's etc. in the loading bay they then close the dishwasher so it is sealed tight. At the side of the dishwasher is a small plasma touch screen, the member of staff then selects how he/she want's the dishes to be cleaned. The CPU then take's out the command and the dishwasher then cleans the dishes. Point of sale terminal's * These points of sale terminals are used for exactly the same reason as they are used on booksales. ...read more.

Conclusion

If the card is swiped before 3.30 a green marker is shown, but if it is swiped after 3.30 it is shown as a red marker. The green marker represents an afternoon appearance and a red marker shows an evening appearance. The marker is then placed in the date that the member attended. This information is just a set of statistics, which are calculated by the attendance record. It shows how many times the member has visited the bingo and when their last visit was. Examples of input and output data Here is an example screenshot of how data can be entered onto the database. This is a process that is used to create a new member, it is very straightforward. All you have to do is copy the information from the application form onto the form on-screen. This part of the input section is used for the member's personal details, these details are essential if the customer wishes to become a member. This section of the input data is for extra details, therefore the member does not have to complete this section if they do not want to. This section is just basically used for statistics i.e. they can calculate what percentage of members smoke or travel to the bingo by bus. The outcome of this process is the customer becoming a member. Once the member has been entered onto the database he/she is issued with a membership number, this number is printed onto a membership card (appendix C). This membership card is then sent to the customer with a membership pack (appendix E). This membership pack welcomes the customer to the Buckingham bingo organisation and contains information on how to play bingo, how to find the organisation and all the bingo catchphrases they need to know. Here is a screenshot of how the form looks when it is completed. These details have been taken from an application form, which is shown in appendix B. The customer is now a member of the bingo and is stored on the database. William Hayes ICT Serving Organisations Year 13 1 1 ...read more.
