Being used to technology and the security of a computer system doing all the work, this may take longer to ensure that the information and the items entered are correct. Another setback might occur if the system is running too slow because there are numerous items entered into the purchase queue, which will cause customers to become irritated or impatient. Even though there are definite risks to consider when dealing with computers and the many information systems that are needed to run a business, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Each suggested information system will only benefit the company because each information system is designed to make the flow of business productivity to run smoother and more effectively. That is why these information systems are the top five in this proposal.
