customizability of the actual platform itself, it can all be designed to support Kingo’s business. The issue with Platform as a Service would be the unknown expenses incurred after all that customization is done. Kingo would already be paying $300 to $600 monthly for the service without all the customization needed. An additional $180 an hour would be required in order for Kingo to get the best of this service, and who
knows how many hours of additional help would be needed to make Kingo feel as if it is ready for his business. Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP):Incorporating an ERP into Junk Van would allow for a central database to be used across all Kingo’s employees. It can be accessed and edited remotely and would pull together all aspects of the business including “purchasing, sales, and customer service, to finance, human resources and e-commerce”. Being that Kingo has a mediumsized business, an ERP would work well with Junk Van. The only downfall of having an ERP is the cost. An ERP would be incredibly expense compared to other IT options available. Solution:Ultimately, a company of this size that does not have brick and mortar, needs to have excellent communication and fluidity of information. The ineffectiveness of the current database and tediousness of emailing between clients and employees can both be solved with the implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning System. An ERPwould allow for a central database in which drivers, operators, and the data clerk can allshare a platform without confusion of overlay. While all the options Kingo has explored have their pro’s and con’s, an ERP will give room to Kingo’s business, allowing it to grow in the right direction.
