Last Week’s Discussion : Company is a tutoring company (non-for-profit)

With my company growing larger, I would need to have the information organized. Access will allow me to create specific tables that I need to store both client and tutor’s information. I would use forms to create a user-friendly interface to enter new customer’s information, schedule appointments, and managing tutors. I would also create specific queries that would help me create specific reports needed. These reports would include the client’s progress report, payment report, pending lesson’s report and much more. Integrity is extremely important when dealing with a customer’s information. Specific permission would be granted to users based on their needs. This would eliminate access to critical information from lower level employees. It also would allow me to track who made the changes so that they can be addressed and held accountable. Finally, using the report options, I will be able to easily report payments and expenses to file tax to make sure that we honestly report all income earned throughout the life of the business.
