Company Over view This proposal is intended to give an overview for the opening of a nostalgic record store named, A Total Music Affair. This proposal will present beneficial and effective information systems that will benefit our business. I will be discussing and providing five different examples of various systems that will that will benefit our business their advantages and drawbacks. My business partner and I come to an understanding of which systems meet our intentions for our business. More specifically, my partner is unfamiliar with different systems of technology. The proposal will explain the jargon (the technical term or characteristic idiom of a special activity or group) of e-commerce, brick and mortar businesses or companies that have a physical presence and other face-to-face customer experiences.
Company Goals Our intensions and goals are to provide a variety of music for eras from a variety of genres. The information systems that we will set in place will meet the needs of our customers. Our sales inventory will consist of compact discs, t-shirts, posters, and music accessories. Our intentions are to take the five information systems depicted and boost our new business straight to the top. We want to stock our business with quality and original music.
