A. Background of the study
Chin Hong was established since 1950s by the Yao Cabigon family. It started in a small store in Justice Romauldez St. in Tacloban City. And at the early 1990s, the family changed the store to a merchandising company. And as time passed it became widely known Commercial Company in the region. Chin Hong is a commercial company that supplies the products of Magnolia, Mega Sardines, Purefoods, and etc. However, the Commercial Company has been encountering different difficulties like calculating the sales and profit for the entire month, tracking products and giving summaries to the consumers of their total purchase of products. The reason they encounter this kind of difficulties is that they often work with their transactions manually, that consumes most of their time. After learning about the difficulties of the company through the conducted interview, through careful study about the issue, the researchers came up with a solution that meets all the requirements for the problems of the company. They came up with a Sales and Inventory system. This will help the company to track products, calculate profit and sales and solve all other inconvenience that company encounters in a lesser amount of time. The researchers also realized that the company needs a computerized system because of its partnerships with different huge companies e.g. Magnolia, Mega Sardines, B-Meg, Purefoods etc. and having a manual transaction is very hard even though the company has several employees. The researchers thought that this kind of system can offer a big contribution to the management of the company. They also thought that with this system, the company can grow in the business industry faster than it was especially that technology in this kind of business is constantly improving, that’s why with our proposed system for this company the “Sales and Inventory System” will make their productions, transactions and sales more...
