1 Progress Report Best Tile Order Processing System

2 Introduction and Background From humble beginnings, Best Tile Inc. started as a very small business with only 4 employees, 2 salespersons, 1 warehouse employee and 1 manager. After working as a physical therapist for more than 10 years, the manager realized his true passion was in home re-modeling and not in pulled muscles, sprains, and rehab. Bob Maynes, along with partner Dave Causito who works in the warehouse, opened Best Tile to serve the San Francisco bay area with all their tile needs, whether it be in the kitchen, bedroom or shower. When they first opened doors in 1992, orders were written by hand, completed and loaded by the warehouse employee. Today, it has grown into a larger small business with over 20 employees and customers coming from as far south as Gilroy and as far north as Ukiah; however, the sales staff is still processing orders by hand.

3 Statement of Scope As the amount of customers increase, the sales staff is unable to write complete orders fast enough to meet the demand. As much as the company wanted to hire more staff, the fact that the amount of customers varied from day to day makes it virtuously impossible to hire more staff. The purpose of this project To develop a computerized system that can speed up the processing of orders To develop a computerized system that can speed up the processing of orders Reduce the customers wait Reduce the customers wait The anticipated benefits Reduce errors that are caused by manual processing of orders Reduce errors that are caused by manual processing of orders Finish order fulfillment earlier to more rapid order processing Finish order fulfillment earlier to more rapid order processing Increase in orders placed Increase in orders placed

5 Interview Questions For Manager: What do you as a manager do in relation to the sales staff? I check the daily transaction reports for problems. Are there any plans to implement on-line ordering of products? Currently, no plans to implement on-line ordering. What is done, if any, to ensure orders written by hand don't get lost or written down incorrectly? The current process involves the warehouse personnel catching any errors during picking of the order. This is why we would like to have a system that would eliminate the hand-written process. What would you want the system to do? I would like it to replace the hand writing and increase speed of processing orders. Who is Best Tile's main client base? The client base varies from homeowners to contractors. Are there different pricing for homeowners and contractors? No. Everyone gets the same price.

6 Interview Questions For Sales Staff: What does the sales staff do to capture clients? We dont handle the marketing aspect. We just sell items and write up the orders. Since you hand write orders, are you comfortable using a computer to process orders? Yes, using a computer should not pose as a problem. What do you do when you write up the order? We write the orders specifying the quantity, description, and price. Then we get the payment from the customer. After receiving the payment, we hand the order over to the warehouse personnel to have the order loaded into the customers vehicle. Do you know what happens if the items are not in stock. If the item is not in stock, the warehouse orders it from the suppliers, we, the sales staff, are then notified to notify the customer. Do you know what happens in respect to the supplier? Yes, the supplier will send a monthly invoice to our manager for payment of the items that we special ordered. How do you collect payment from the customers? Payments are usually paid during the purchase. Cash, checks, and credit cards. How are they handled? Cash is accepted. Checks are accepted with proper identification. Credit cards are handled though a bank processing center which tells us whether the card is approved or declined.
