Statement of the Problem
The most common solution to this type of problem is to have the Automated or Computerized Point of Sale System. Currently, a physical inventory is manually performed every quarter by Pro Shop personnel. The process is time consuming and labor intensive, orders are placed for depleted stock with purchase. Due to limited storage space, shop managers have no way of optimizing their space with items that move quickly and customers are forced to do without the Pro Shop's services during the two day inventory. In addition to not managing inventory correctly, the shop has a significant cash handling problem.
This is partly due to the physical layout of the current cash register with four mechanical cash drawers located below the counter-top and the fact that as many as three clerks at one time may have access to the cash register. The cash register is capable of handling four separate clerks and the four cash drawers, but in the hustle to serve the customers, money is mistakenly taken from and placed into the wrong drawer. This makes it impossible to balance the cash receipts with the register totals, and could invite fraud.
Specifically, this study attempts to the following questions: 1. Does the need exist for a computerized information system? 2. What wi1l be the benefits of such a system is installed? 3. If needed, which system should be procured? Subsidiary research questions that will be investigated
