1.1 Background of the Study
The problem of the study is about the company’s inventory and sales system. Due to its current method of inventory system, the company has encountered several problems regarding the monitoring and stocks checking. With these problems currently being encountered by the company, the motivation to create and implement an online sale and inventory system is high. To provide simple but accurate sales and inventory system in this company can have a big difference with their sales and eventually in their company’s reputation as one of the trusted hardware stores in its community.
Noliboy General Enterprises is a hardware store located at Block 15 Lot 22 Phase2, Gold Street, Mary Homes Subdivision, Molino IV, Bacoor, Cavite. The company was founded by Mr. And Mrs. Nonelon B. Ogot. The company started as a small scale business selling elastomeric paints, cements, door knobs, fluorescent lamps, grass cutters, piping and light bulbs. The couple went on to build its first store at Molino IV, Bacoor, Cavite. Having a clear vision to become a premier construction products provider in Cavite and along with its trusted employees, the company started to be known in its community by their quality products and good service. The company started with a capital of Php600,000, not that big for a hardware business. But with the company’s dedication for hardwork and determination to rise amongst others, the small hardware store became one of those who are trusted when it comes to supplying construction materials within their community. Today, Noliboy General Enterprises boasts its tag as one of its community’s premier general merchandise store.
1.2 Statement of the Research Problem
The company is currently using manual system for checking and monitoring their stocks. Employees monitor the stocks with a six-hour interval manual tallying of their product’s current number. The company has stick to this process since its foundation and still implementing it through all of the products.
Due to its current way of monitoring its stocks, several problems have been triggering the company and by having a computerized system, these problems can be prevented. Listed below are some of the problems encountered by Noliboy General Enterprises.
Product Monitoring. The company has experienced trouble in monitoring its stocks because of its manual tallying method. The proposed system will try to incorporate all the products into one inventory system that will check whether the stocks are still available or not.
Faulty/Damaged Products. Using a manual type of system brought problems in the company in determining whether a product is bought or rejected. The proposed system will tally the number of products bought, replaced, and rejected. Through that, the company can determine the real number of sales that it has made through a specific period of time.
Product Evaluation. To have a system that will evaluate the company’s bestselling products is one that Noliboy General Enterprises is looking forward to have. Through that process, the company can determine what products must have a larger number than the others thus preventing product shortage. The proposed system will be able to tally each and every product and will be able to determine what products are still numerous, scanty and zero in quantity The problems mentioned were the company’s concerns that lead them to try and apply the proposed computerized sales and inventory system. Hopefully by implementing the new system, work will be easier for the employees of the company and monitoring the stocks will be more accurate than before.
