Mangement Information System – Book Report/Review Example
MANAGEMENT INFORMATIONAL SYSTEM In this essay, we shall be talking about a problem facing the Horse gallop Company. The problem facing this company is that there is no means of communication between the different departments in the company as well as a lack of communication between the branches with the customer.
The Horse and Gallops Company is a mortgage and real estate company that deals with the buying and development of land in the Saudi Arabia. The company has three branches so as to ease access to customers throughout Saudi Arabia. The main branch is in Riyadh, one in the East of Saudi Arabia and the third in the West of Saudi Arabia. There are several departments in the company dealing with the various logistics required in real estate. The contractors deal with the building of houses, while the maintenance department ensures that the commercial units are well maintained and operational. The trading and mortgage department deal with payment of the houses and general financial matters, while the general services department deals with serving the customers needs.
I am the general manager of the Horse and Gallops Company. My role in the company is to ensure that the requirements of every customer are met by the various departments. It is, therefore, my job to link the various departments and ensure that the houses or commercial units are finished in time and as promised. There have been several complaints from customers that these departments are not linked and one has to jump from office to office to solve their problems. When it comes to payment there is also a disconnect as one has to pay cash to the various departments. This problem is especially common when a customer wants more than one partition.
As general manager, I linked up with the IT department to develop an information system linking all these departments. This would ease payment for the customers and in case of any problems the contact between the departments mean that the problem will be solved quickly. The connection between the departments also eases my job as a general manager since there is communication between the various departments.
