Jewelers is a small jewelry company in a college town

Especially  for You Jewelers is a small jewelry company in a college town. Over the  last couple of years, it has experienced a tremendous increase in its  business. However, its financial performance has not kept pace with its  growth. The current system, which is partly manual and partly automated,  doesn’t track accounts receivables sufficiently, and the company is  finding it difficult to determine the reasons why the receivables are so  high. The company runs frequent specials to attract customers but has  no idea whether these efforts are profitable or if the benefit—if there  is one—comes from associated sales. Especially for You Jewelers wants to  increase repeat sales to its existing customers; thus, it needs to  develop a customer database. It also wants to install a new direct sales  and accounting system to help solve the outlined problems.

The  new direct sales and accounting system for Especially for You Jewelers  will be an important element in the growth and success of the jewelry  company. The direct sales portion must track every sale, be able to link  to the inventory system for cost data, and provide a daily profit and  loss report. The customer database must be able to produce purchase  histories to assist management in preparing special mailings and special  sales to existing customers. Detailed credit balances and aged accounts  for each customer would help to solve the problem with the high balance  of accounts receivables. Special notice letters and credit history  reports would help management reduce accounts receivable.
