  • 2. Accounting Programs As A Business Data Co All businesses use data collection systems, they just don’t call them that. They call them accounting programs, e-mail programs, bulk mailing programs and telephone systems. If this list seems a bit strange, think about it. All of these collect data, store it and organize it.
  • 3. Before businesses used computers Before businesses used computers, they still had in place, at lease one business data collection system; double entry accounting. They usually had more because they had filing cabinets, address and telephone books and a calendar. While the computer has automated many of these systems, it is still a business data collection system.
  • 4. Collection of data, storage of dataand Collection of data, storage of data and organization of data is imperative to any business. Collection can include obtaining phone numbers from printed phone books, online data collection of those who visit your website, obtaining addresses of business to which you will mail a brochure, and collecting your accounting data to determine your expenses and income. There are many more, but insufficient room to list them all. All of this data is worthless unless you can collect it in one spot.
  • 5. Collection of data Collection of data, is not all a business data collection system accomplishes. All this data is most useless if you cannot store it. The man-hours to recreate it, every time you need to view it, would be extensive and wasteful. The storage of the data must be efficient and reliable, again for the same reason.
  • 6. The last function of a business data c The last function of a business data collection system is the output of the data. Now if the program simply spit out all the data you input in the same way you input it, there would be no usefulness in its collection or storage. The ultimate goal of an business data collection system is to organize the data in a useful, easy to read and understand format so can have the data you want.
  • 7. An Accounting Program Can Be Used Online Many accounting programs today have an online e-commerce interface, which allows for the gathering of data regarding online purchases, made by customers. Name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, purchase choices, taxes paid and shipping address are all just a few of the normal items that are collected by the business data collection system.
  • 8. Additional items can be programmed andtrac Additional items can be programmed and tracked by the e- commerce interface, limited only by the law and the programmers imagination in asking questions website visitors will answer.
  • 9. Tracks The Information You Want However a business data collection system tracks the information you want, it may be compromised. Many of the new virus programs specifically disallow cookies to be placed. Those that are placed cannot transmit through some programs.
