GCSE ICT COURSEWORK. REPORT ON WORK EXPERIENCE ORGANISATION By; Thomas Mann Introduction This is a report on the uses of I.C.T in Trionic Ltd. They do not currently have an I.C.T system employed within the company, so I cannot report upon the system.

E.g. U.S.B. Connections, hard drives etc. They could then also have a re-order level to help them decide when stock should be re-ordered, this would be a quick and easy process, as soon as they sell an item of stock they could record this on the computer, and use an 'IF' formula to warn them that stock level is low. They should also store this information not only on a current hard-drive, but they should back-up on a removable storage device, e.g. a re-writeable CD or a floppy disk.
