I am doing case study of 4MM005 Module assessment. Here is four topic of case study from which I need to choose one. I choose case study no 2. Currently I am studying 4cs001 and 4cc001 and this case study is for these students so I choose to do this work.
This task is relating to a small local estate agent based in Wolverhampton. At this time he has a small organisation with up to 10 employees. He has a new business and he has no system at this time. We need to develop a full system for this organisation so it can run their business smoothly and can do competition with their competitor. The main work of this organisation is to showing properties to the customers, advertisement of house for sale, advertising the services available and expanding the business. For doing all these work, the estate agent require a system which can easily book and maintain record of appointments with their customers, easy to advertisement, the modern way to showing the pictures of properties on web site and on office and should be easily access to members of staff, and there should be some modern services like maps. All these things makes it better for advertisement because people can get more specification about property very easily and it will also help to the staff to serve their client in good manner.
Because at this time estate agent have nothing like hardware specification and any software so we need to find out the the best system with the all latest technology for the agent. Software should be compatible with hardware and should be easy to use for the staff.
