This Blog will explain to you why information systems are used in every day-to-day running of a business.
Imagine this you’re the manager of a typical corner shop, nothing too big but yet the shop still has to deal with deliveries coming in and paying employees and dealing with customer requests and all the other usual tasks a small shop has to deal with. How do you think you can manage all this? Having it all on paper and sorting through it is possible but its making life much more harder for yourself! Just think that you can have all your deliveries dealt with through the use of an information system that allows you to keep track of which deliveries you have paid for, which deliveries are yet to come in and which deliveries may have got it wrong and what goods you must send back. An information system can keep track of all transactions and have all the information stored away and ready for whenever you may need it.
Without information systems you would have to go through every employees payslip to make sure you have it calculated correctly, make sure you have the right amount of tax taken off this may be easily done with a few employees but imagine having to go through all the steps every week for a big company with lots of employees, head wrecking and chaotic! An information system can do all this for you in a more simpler way. Do any of you guys watch Raw, the restaurant TV programme on RTE 1? Do you remember the episode where Kate had opened up her own business and had all her financial statements stuffed into her purse? Just imagine trying to sort through all that every week or month. It would drive you crazy and there is no need to because an information system can handle that for you once you gather the data. It’s as simple as this, Information Systems are the way to go to make your life and business work much more easier and to have your business organised. They really are the way forward.
