We cannot deny the fact that computers have evolved from scientific curiosity to an absolutely necessary tool in virtually all areas of our lives. In a business establishment such as Masuerte Supermarket, computerization of their system will lead them to a well-organized company and suited for future competitiveness. The company doesn’t have an automated system to use for the necessity of an advance file and reports. It takes a lot of reports to produce. This is the reason why the proponents want them to ease their burden. With the knowledge about the computer capabilities, the difficulty of manipulating their files manually will no longer be a problem. With the use of computers, simple tasks can be performed according to specific instructions at such fresh speed at a high degree of accuracy. Only users of large, expensive computer systems could enjoy the power of database management. Data was organized and manipulated as a result, individual and small business benefits from this type of system. Today managing a business has never been easy. Before, business does not need a large amount of capital and can start even without an exhaustive investigation regarding its viability that’s why most number of businesses did not succeed, but now, if someone wants a bigger profit he needs to invest a large amount of capital. Investors should be aware of what kind of business to pursue for it is not only the money that counts but the time and effort they contribute.
