Unit 8 Discussion Topic 1
Your event planning company is investigating avenues to reduce costs and increase profitability. One area being considered is upgrading the existing in-house Microsoft Office suite-based registration program to an online registration system (Review the Chapter 14 reading from Unit 3). This would free-up a team of three IT personnel currently dedicated to the development and sustainability of the program.
- Identify 1 registration software package and 1 Internet technology alternative that may be utilized by your event planning company
- Evaluate the effectiveness of your selections from item #1
Provide your recommendation for the use of one or the other; the particular software package or IT alternative and the reasoning behind your decision
- Do some research on the Internet and then share one application (also known as an app) for a planner and one for an attendee. Make sure your application does not duplicate someone elses.
- Then explain each of the applications usefulness to the planner or the attendee.
- On the last day of Discussion you will then post your vote for the most useful application posted in each of these two categories.
