Introduction

The De-Vinyl Record Store will offer solutions in finding the music that customers have enjoyed for years. The store will have worldwide providers that focus on hard to find musical hits. Information systems will provide a way to transfer the critical information to place orders with providers and in the right format to satisfy each customer. This system can be used to develop many diverse areas, plan, and manage the daily operations to nurture the future growth of the company. Information systems are both computer-based and noncomputer based, but different types are needed to be successful. For this type of business, it would be essential to include a functional area IS system, a transaction processing system, an office automation system, a management information system, a supply chain information system, and an electronic commerce system for full capacity use. For a smooth operation, this information structure will assist in creating activity reports, track credit card sales, handle payroll processing, and sustain the store's budget to remain consistent and to stay ahead of the competitors.

A company website will be developed for customers to discover new music from almost every genre and to ask for advice from the staff to locate those hard to find musical treasures. Each customer can use the company software to record and download music to an iPod or an electronic device for easy transportation. Music also can be stored on a desktop or laptop hard drive, a CD Rom and can be transferred from computer to computer for trouble-free mobility. Customer service lines will be set-up to track consumer feedback and to support the business development according to the needs of the consumers. A prediction of the buying behaviors and trends can be easily tracked by analyzing the revenue and sales reports that the new system can generate. Using a variety of information systems can provide the basis for essential services, new products, and a strategic advantage that will result in higher sales and profits.
