I agree with Minerva that these are very important questions that need to be address immediately. Also, since Norma covered some of the key factors the book mentioned, I found an interested website that touches on some other areas of concern that I would have never thought of.

On the top on their list of risks is that wholesale warehouses are at risk of fire damage. Therefore, one of the questions that we should eventually go over with Washburn Electronics is what steps they take to prevent fires at their facilities where our products will be stored. A second area of concern is crime and theft. Warehouses may be very tempting to thieves since they house such a large amount of products, especially in this case

Unformatted text preview: where the wholesale warehouse will be filled with electronics which are easy to resell.

So it would be important to find out what sort of back-up system they will have in place. I would ask them if they plan on keeping paper back-up or hard drive back-ups.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
