Wireless Technology Proposal
The following proposal is for Party Plate’s possible introduction of wireless technologies into the work environment. We have identified two wireless technologies that would be beneficial for implementation into the organization. The goal would be for these wireless technologies to help streamline our data management and increase our productivity. Within this proposal we will identify the benefits and the risks of implementing these technologies.
In order to succeed and grow in today’s ever-changing business environment it is critical to keep up with changes in new technologies. To be competitive and continue advancing in marketing we must ensure that our staff has the competitive advantage by being able to utilize the latest technologies and data management tools that are available. Our goal as a company is to be able to meet the ever-changing demands of the customer by equipping our staff with the latest marketing data, communication data, and reporting data. Having these abilities would allow for us to research any topic effectively and efficiently. We must also have a platform that allows our internal staff to share sales and marketing information across all of the departments, both in office and out in the field. Customer interaction must be optimized through emails, video conferencing and phone calls.
In order to accomplish our goals here at Party Plates we have put together the utilization of two wireless options that we think will help increase business in an effective and streamlined way. For the wireless technologies implementation we have choose to implement the Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet and Galaxy 4 smart phone. The reason we chose these two wireless devices is because it is a necessity to stay connected in todays business world. Two ways in which we can…...

(REI) has been a worldwide leader in selling outdoor recreation gear, sporting goods, and clothes in 122 retail stores in 29 states, Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI) opens four to six new stores each year. REI's sales exceeded 1.8 billion in 2011. With four to six new stores opening each year and wireless technologies becoming the standard in the business industry, the team at REI is ready to move forward and maintain its position as one of the industry leaders in outdoor enthusiast gear sales. Proposal: As technology has progressed REI has fallen behind. Large retail companies have followed the wireless technology trend to stay ahead of the curve. REI’s goal is to increase sales, improve inventory management, and customer service through an increased use of technology. Studies have shown that if needs are not met quickly, one in ten customers will abandon a line while waiting. This might cause the customer to leave the store, making them less likely to return in the future. Mobile point of sales (POS) systems can be integrated, using handheld computers, scanners, and printers with integrated credit card readers. During the holidays and high volume periods, sales personnel can be strategically placed throughout the store with these mobile devices. The whole transaction can be completed for customers paying by credit card with receipt printed or......

...Wireless Technologies Proposal BIS/220 Ivon Young Wireless Technologies Proposal Mrs. Smith, the President of Party Plates likes to know about wireless technologies available for her business to use. Currently, her company doesn’t use any wireless technologies. She has asked team D to recommend at least two wireless technologies that would be beneficial to implement her organization. Proposal There are many different options out there that could work to assist in the daily operational activities; two of these technologies that would be most beneficial are handheld terminals and a company e-mail system. When a customer is looking for a product that cannot be found on the shelf in the store, an employee can use the handheld terminal to scan the label on the shelf to see if there is any in stock. If so, they will be able to see where the product is located and quickly locate. Another situation where the handheld terminal is useful is inventory. A Party Plates employee can quickly identify products that are low in stock. Because there are so many functions on the handheld terminals, managers can give the employees codes with passwords to monitor the work that each employee is or is not doing. Another technology that would be very useful to Party Plates is a company e-mail system. A manager may need to get a communication to all employees at one time. With a company e-mail system, doing so would be very easy. Communication could involve hot......

...Demonstrative Communication Clayton Hoss Peaker BCOM/275 March 12, 2013 Daniel Greene There are many forms of demonstrative communication, which include nonverbal and unwritten communications. The big three are facial expressions, tone of voice, and body language. In this essay the author will explain how these forms of communication can be effective and ineffective, positive and negative, and for the sender and receiver. The author will get in-depth on the top three forms of nonverbal and unwritten communications. The pros and cons of these three. When done with this essay he hopes you will have a better understanding of demonstrative communications. Facial expressions is a key in demonstrative communications. You can buy or sell your audience with your facial expressions. The human face is the most complex and versatile of all species. (Cynthia, 2007). An audience will be able to know if you know anything about the subject you are talking about just by your facial expressions. It can be effective if you enjoy your subject and you show your enjoyment in your face. That will keep the audience’s attention. It could be ineffective if you have no clue about the subject you are talking about and it shows in your facial expressions that you are confused about what you are talking about. You will lose the audience quick. A positive is again if you enjoy and the audience reads it on your face you will keep them interested. A negative would be......

Party Plates Wireless Technology Proposal

...Party Plates is growing every day. We have increased our sales with the implementation of our new collaboration software and we want to take another step, by introducing wireless technology to the business. Wireless technology is impacting the way in which business operates and provides us with excellent opportunities to exponentially grow our business. By introducing two new wireless technologies into our business that benefits all of our departments we can further streamline our systems and potentially increase sales. The introduction of iPhones to the business will allow all of our employee’s access to our database, contact lists and everything they need to get their job done in an efficient and productive manner, wherever they may be. As you know many of our sales reps travel frequently and having an iPhone will enable them to virtually work anywhere and stay in contact with head office on a regular basis. The other wireless technology that we’d like to implement is the use of a GPS system. This will enable all of our delivery drivers to find our customers easily when they are out on the road. By purchasing a GPS tracking system that monitors our company vehicles we can monitor each driver and provide our customers with up-to-date information on their delivery times and location. Also with the implementation of both of these technologies, the sales department would be able to respond to customer’s issues, create solutions outside the work environment, respond to email......

...Colon Cancer Curtis Boutte COM/156 Kate Marciniak Colon Cancer can be cured through various medical procedures including early detection. I really was surprised to find out that if you do the screening process and not wait for symptoms it can save your life. Many people don’t realize that there are different colon cancers. Colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon [Large intestine] or rectum) is the third most common cancer in men and women. Cancer of the colon or rectum is called colon or colorectal cancer. It develops in the digestive tract from polyps that initially are benign, but that over time mutate into a cancerous tumor. The cancer cells invade and destroy nearby tissue, and can break away to form new tumors in other parts of the body, a process called metastasis. Colon cancer is very serious and can kill many people. I have had two grandparents die from this cancer. Colon cancer is not the leading killing cancer but is second to lung cancer. The following conditions may put you at a higher risk for colon cancer. Your family history according to (www.cancer .org) you are more likely to get colorectal cancer if one of your parents, a brother, or a sister has had the disease. If in the past you have had other types of cancer, a history of colon polyps, or inflammatory diseases of the bowl. Your lifestyle has a lot to do with your chances of getting colon cancer. If you smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol all the time, if you are lazy, obesity,......

... Wireless Technologies Proposal Wallace Pittman BIS/220 May 19, 2014 Jon Smout Wireless Technologies Proposal The march of technology will never cease and businesses are required to adapt to changing technology that may give them an advantage. Since more and more people are utilizing wireless technology such as smart phones, it means that more people across the world can be connected with each other. With this in mind, the two pieces of wireless technology that would benefit Party Plates would be cell phones and utilizing an Enterprise grade Wireless LAN Controller. The main benefit of using cellular devices, like smart phones, is that they can be used almost anywhere and require no land lines. They can be used at anytime and do a variety of things that could be used by upper management to keep in contact with each other or used by workers, like truck drivers for example, to keep track of orders and where they are going. A con that would come with using smart phones is that there may be service outages and would require the purchase of said smart phones. The next useful piece of wireless technology would be to use a Wireless LAN Controller. Enabling this piece of technology will greatly simplify businesses processes by having everything related to business activities connected to the business's network. It adds security to the business's network by denying unauthorized devices access. A Wireless LAN Controller will can also keep track of business critical......

Wireless Technologies Proposal

...Wireless Technologies Proposal BIS/220 May 07, 2014 Marc Krawitz The pros and cons for incorporating these two wireless technologies in your organization Color laser printers will be able to print very quickly and also print color manuscript. However, color laser printer mixes the swiftness of black and white laser printers with the capability to print in full color. Color laser printers can also print photograph with good quality (Arnott, 2010). The disadvantages of color laser printers are, they are very pricey, four ink cartridges that is measured, such as black, yellow, blue, and red, but if one of the cartridges gets out-of-ink, it will not print (Arnott, 2010). There are several computer systems, but the main focus is Microsoft Windows. The main advantages of, Microsoft Windows is that it will make available convenient resolutions that can be put into action by anyone. Microsoft Office is also 100 percent well-matched with any dossier or detail record. However, several other software as well as systems try to put every effort to be will-suited with Microsoft Office (Managed Network Services, 2012). In-spite-of-that, the drawback of Microsoft Windows is that in the place of work, over 95 percent of all viruses and malicious software are inscribe for Windows Operating Systems. So that means that companies or organizations must take all security measures (Managed Network Services, 2012). References Arnott, L. (2010).......
