9. Feasibility Assessment 9.1 Economic Analysis There are numerous tangible and intangible benefits. Those benefits are list as following: Tangible Benefits o Increased speed of activity o Sales opportunities can be quickly identified and the appropriate point of contact can be notified in a timely manner o Quick identification of sales on the verge of being lost o Automation of the follow-up process o Increased communication throughout the sales pipeline o Improvement of management planning and control a Management can identify unproductive branches or relationship managers o Users can generate a wide array of reports o More efficient planning for the sales and marketing functions o Opening new markets and increasing sales opportunities o Identifying potential sales leads/referrals earlier in the sales process in order to increase the success rate of the sale o Enhanced management of human resources o Age sales leads and referrals, so as to prevent lost sales Intangible Benefits o Increase in competitiveness o More timely information o Better information o Improved account management o Improved resource management o Increased leveraging ability Likewise benefits, there are tangible and intangible costs are involved in developing and maintaining the proposed system. The costs are listed as following: Tangible Costs o Initial labor costs o Development costs o Implementation costs o Software o Hardware o Technical training of employees Intangible Costs o Employee adaptation to new system o Employee response to new technology o Employee reaction to performance analysis 9.1.1 Financial Summary Revenue Increases:
Background image of page 1
The company is estimated to lose approximately $2.5 million in sales each year due to the lack of mechanism to generate and handle sale leads/referrals. It is estimated with LTRS the company will have a decrease in lost revenue by 15% the first year, 35% the second year, 40% the third year and 50% in the forth and fifth year. There will not be any significant changes in the first year as the new system is still at its infant stage. It will take some time before the users get familiar with the new system. As they get comfortable, they could then reap the full benefits from the new system. Non-recurring Costs: Non-recurring costs include all costs associated with researching, designing, developing, and implementing LTRS. Below is a breakdown of the associated costs. All costs are lumped into categories and summed for the entire project. HARDWARE Workstations $10,500 Servers (Database/Web Servers)$47,000 Networking equipment $90,000 Communication eauit3ment $29,000 SOFTWARE Development Software $25,000 Database software $10,000 LEGAL PROFESSIONAL/CONSULTING $60,000 USER TRAINING $36,700 GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE $32,200 RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT $7,800 REQUIREMENT DOCUMENTATION $4,500 TOTAL NONRECURRING COSTS $352,700 Recurring Costs: SYSTEM MAINTENANCE APPLICATION SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE $60,000 DATABASE STORAGE EXPENSE $10,000 COMMUNICATIONS $9,300 CONTINUED TRAINING $16,000 GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE $21,300 $75,000 TOTAL RECURRING COSTS $191,600 The above costs and benefits are combined into the cost-benefit analysis below. The project is a worthwhile venture because it provides a Net Present Value return of $2.8 million over a five-year period. year O year 1 year 2 year 3 year 4 year 5 Economic Benefits $0.00 $375,000 $875,000 $1,000,00 0 $1,250,000 $1,250,000

All I need for this, is the feasibilities. I have attached a template of what the feasibility would look like. This is a non-profit organization that requires a new database that will help with performance and increase more productivity in the organization. Below is a little overview of the organization. The Problem How does having a traditional paper filing system impact business performance? *Cluster filing system vs. Organized database = how the Database will increase productivity.* -Paper trails The Organization Campus Recreation Service’s “Adventure Pursuits,” is a child organization of Campus Recreation Services that focuses on the growth and development of college students in an interactive and fun manner. Adventure Pursuits offers an wonderful variety of sporting services (indoor and outdoor) to enhance leadership skills, problem solving and team building skills amongst college students of Towson University. Adventure Pursuits offers many services to include biking, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing and equipment rentals at a nominal fee to insure that activity integrity. According to exclusive sources, this organization has been self sustainable for quite some time by utilizing senior file administration routines. An obvious solution to increase administration processes is to simply migrate all hard data into soft data. Adventure Pursuits could be considered an Non-profit Organization via the lack of interest to maintain revenues after the fiscal year. Instead, the unused funding gets recycled into the other programs for the Campus Recreation Service. Adventure Pursuits can be classified as a small-medium organization based on the number of employees and the undetermined variable of “how many participants” are present.
