FINAL PROJECT: CLUB IT, PART 3
Club IT is a newly renovated establishment for individuals to gather and interact with one
another in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff at Club IT is dedicated to satisfying the clientele, who is
eager to visit again. The club has a music venue that ranges from “live bands on Fridays and Saturdays
and a live DJ Tuesdays through Thursdays playing a collection of MP3 playlists, including hip-hop,
techno, and electronic with some Top 40s” (Phoenix; Virtual Company, 2000-2006), Club IT also
offers a variety of food.
After the conclusion of the analysis, the desire to keep growing and eventually
open another establishment, Club IT will need to change their information technology (IT) from what is
being used at present. The first noted change would be to implement a point of sale Enterprise
Resource Planning system (ERP) (Rainer, Turban, Splettstoesser-Hogeterp, & Sanchez-Rodriguez,
2008). This system will allow organization of daily processes, tracking inventory for both food and
beverage items in one centralized location. At present Club IT is conducting these processes manually
on paper, leaving greater room for error. Upgrading to an ERP it will eliminate some errors as well as
‘carry over’ to the second establishment when it is open. With the implementation of a “Point of Sale
system (POS)” (Aldelo Bar Point of Sale System, Bar POS Systems, 2005) Club IT staff would save
‘time’ by entering in food orders
with the reassurance of accurately completed orders for the kitchen as
well as the beverage bar, enabling the staff to have less ‘run time’ and more client service time.
Another advantage of using the POS will be the accuracy of the inventory, this will give Club IT an
active role in prevention of shortage(s) of supplies. Club IT will also need to update the website to be
user-friendly to the club’s clientele; by allowing easier access to advanced ticket sales and merchandise
on hand and sold.
