Select one of the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) linkages that Margaret identified in the meeting, the one you believe will benefit the company the most and be the most feasible to implement.
Address the three points Margaret specified.
Be succinct, but include strong support for your arguments. The Electronic Data Interchange System had been a great tool for “The Office Works”, one of the largest office supply retailers in the said case study and has been a real success. It has been forming linkages to the companies where they buy their products form and the companies that they sell their products to. It has been a huge breakthrough and now the company is planning to expand their EDI network, thus expanding their linkages to other firms. The President, Margaret Bennett, informed several executives and came up with several ideas. After balancing all the ideas, I firmly believe that Wilson Pruitt, the CIO, that states about having similar relationship with hardware and software vendors will benefit the company the most and will be the most feasible to implement first since it is unnecessary to try everything at once and it should be better to focused and concentrate in one area. Wilson Pruitt’s application on establishing linkages with hardware and software vendors is of great deal for the fact that it is by the very nature of what they do, software and hardware manufacturers and vendors is on the cutting edge of technology, while offering secure and cost efficient solutions for their customers' needs. The company can send those requests for price quotations and they could respond back in proposals. These proposals can either be an avenue to a new focus to their investment in new products and services to offer with the aid of the latest technologies that the hardware and software vendors offer. And the fact the Electronic Data Interchange has very much something to do with the direct computer-to-computer transmissions
