  • Other income comes from pine arrangements and the selling of antiques and primitive style furniture

  • Looking to expand

Security systems

Security Systems

  • A Security system needs to protect company and customer information

  • Secure Socket Layers should be added to provide security in online communications and transactions through the website

  • Cisco ASA 5500 Series

  • McAfee Total Protection for Small Businesses

  • Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition

    • Backup Exec for Small Businesses

Recommendations internet and security

Recommendations – internet and security

  • A computer with an internet connection needs to be implemented at the shop

  • Data driven website installed

  • Intranet

  • Hardware vs. Software firewalls

  • Would recommend the Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business package - offers more value

  • Cisco ASA 5500 Series – Least likely to recommend

    • Hardware firewall and expensive

Type of decision support system

Type of Decision Support System

  • Carrollton Country Flowers has no formal computer system in place, so the implementation of a DSS must be very basic.

  • The recommendation for a DSS system will be implementing Microsoft Office into their new computer system. Access and Excel will give the best benefit for a beginning DSS.

  • With the programs CCF can put in a database containing customer accounts, vendor accounts, and a product list that can be used for multiple purposes.

Centralized or decentralized system

Centralized or Decentralized System?

  • Centralized systems have the top tier of management making all of the decisions. Centralized are usually small companies.

  • Decentralized systems spread out the power to managers in order to cover all aspects of the business. Decentralized is usually used in major corporations.

  • Carrollton Country Flowers are considered to be a centralized system because the two owners make all of the decisions.

  • The recommendation is that CCF stays as a centralized system because they are so small. There is no need to spread power.
