Introduction

AIMS: To learn about the advantages and disadvantages of communications technologies in the workplace TASK: To write a report for a company wanting to move into the 21st century Because of low sales, a regional company selling architectural ironmongery has replaced its Director with a new Director, sent from the company's central office. He has asked the Accounts Manager, who is interested in computers but is not an expert, to look at ways they can improve their computer systems. He believes that this will help improve the sales figures.

To help you structure your answer, concentrate first on the Sales Reps, then on the new role of Sales Co-ordinator, and then on the other departments in turn.
