Summary

McBrideservices hope to make profits through strictly controlling costs.They will also employ a small number of staff and largely relying ontechnology. Customers will interact with the company online byentering their own mortgage applications, approvals or denials.

Forthe technological procedures to be successful, a core plan to explainthe functions and tasks are needed. The company has carried out aproject that outlines how the user, system and functional purposeswill be used to meet the goals of the company technologically. Thecompany hopes to provide networks, internet access, printers,telephones, fax in offices. For clients to easily access informationon the company a website and email address that details about thecompany will be available. To ensure the security of the emailaddress, they will eliminate as much junk as possible to create moreroom for access to the company’s mail. Other user services likeprinters and faxes are useful to the company as they help completetasks like downloading application forms (Kozinets, 1999).

Interofficenetwork connectivity is crucial as it facilitates accessibility ofdata in all offices. The connection of office networks is imperativein creation of client database and central location storage ofmortgage applications. This makes it easier for the committee toreview the application. For company networks to work effectively,employees should have basic computer skills to perform computerfunctions excellently. With computer skills, they will be able tooperate, issue commands and perform duties like rebooting computers,changing toners and ink cartridges. Technical support team shouldalso be able to offer support to the team of employees and computersystems in case of any challenges (HM &amp AL).

Anothermajor issue is safety and security of computer systems. Since thisproject entails online applications and procedures, the clients wantto be sure that their information remain confidential and protected.The company hopes to achieve security through implementing internalsecurity systems that limit the number of employees who access clientand company information. Installation of physical security ofcomputer systems to protect the information and constantly updatingthe computer systems with the latest security systems will be done.
