The franchise division sells a complete beading supply package to businesses that want to open their own bead studio. The division is responsible for fulfilling franchisees' supply requirements. The company still uses paper-based forms.

Therefore, a new computer network and website will allow Bead Bar to go global. The recommendations I would choose for a network topology would be the bus topology for a start.
