Case Study
Mr. Somani, Director (sales) of the Mohini Departmental Store Chain in Delhi is
a worried person. The worries revolve around the number of complaints he has
been receiving from the Store Managers about non-availability of the store
information.
The Mohini Stores chain was started about 6 years back. The then management
thought it fit to install a Sales Information System (SIS) also. The present
system, therefore, was installed at the beginning of the chain and became
operational a year later.
The system is operated on batch-processing mode and it generates monthly and
quarterly reports on several aspects of Sale.
The basic input document for the processing is the Sale Invoice. In fact the
Store personnel enter the Sale Invoices of the day at the end of the day. The
Store Manager is responsible to see that the input data is created and validated
before the same is passed on to the Computer Department for further processing.
Every Store was provided with a PC for this purpose, however, on persistent
demands one more PC was provided to each Store. The Computer Department does the
final processing at the Head Office, and then the Reports distributed to each
Store.
The system worked very well for about 3 years, however, for the last two years
there have been several complaints from the Store Managers about the system.
The Mohini started its operations with 3 stores. In the last six years, the
number of Stores has increased to 8. The management has plans to open an
additional Store every year during the next five years. During the last 3 years
the sales of Mohini has increased by nearly 120%.
Apart from the usual retail sales, almost all the Store in the chain cater to
several bulk customers e.g. Government Department, Factories Canteens etc. Which
make bulk purchases from the Stores on a regular basis. The individual Store
Manager generally enter into the sale contracts for these on annual basis. These
are credit sales and the individual Store Manager is responsible for collecting
the outstanding.
