STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

The present manual method of keeping files and records has been found by research to be disadvantageous. This is due to the problems which are identified as follows:

  • Loss of files and records by theft.
  • Loss of files and records by fire disaster and other natural catastrophe that could possibly occur without giving a chance to retrieve these files.
  • Information Overload.
  • The old system of filing is not portable.

The ever changing trend in technology brought the necessity for the automation of everything from paper-and-pen based to absolute computer domination.

The overwhelming emergence of computers paved way to easier access of information that leads to increased production, efficiency and reliability.
