Statement of Problem:

There are several problem associated with current manual system. Problem includes:

1. Booking Problem: Currently booking is one of the main problems being faced by MJR Tom staff. Only the staff manager is assigned to book event. Only the Wednesday is allocated to book events. All the runners have call the staff manager to book an event. Sometimes the staff manager is not in the office or her phone is not connecting, that time runners can not book event on that day and they miss several events. There is also problem with the confirmation of the event, sometime it is seen that some runners don”„¢t get the confirmation, so it creates a big problem and the runner miss the event and have to pay fine for not being on time.

2. Communication problem: MJR Tom has office in Manchester. But the payment is done in the main office at Wimbledon. So all the papers of an event must be send via post from Manchester to London to pay staff of the event.

3. Record keeping problem: Sometimes MJR Tom management need to see the old record to arrive at decision about big events. There are some big events which occurs once in a year. So they need to know how many staff they need, how many barrels they can sale, the duration of the event (tour). They have to find the old documents which sometimes take longer than expected, sometimes some documents miss out, and still need an human to make the decision seeing the papers.

4. Management problem: There are some problems with decision making, like: number of staff needed for a particular event, the runners who are better for an particular event, the probable number of barrels may be sold for a particular event.

5. Salary calculation problem: The runners are paid By 5 * number of hour (Basic) + 1 * number of bag pack sold (commission) + bonus+travel hour * 3.5+waiting hour * 3.5. It calculation of salary is still being done manually and only the total amount is being displayed in the web page. If any one sell 1.3 times then others then he will get extra bonus depending on the profit.

6. Payment problem: The runners can only see their total payment for a particular event in the web. Sometimes the runners want to know their details of payment calculation which not possible by the current system. Even a staff can only see their payment information which is displayed by the web page, if he/she wants to know information about an old payment, need to mail accountant, then he replay which takes about a week to respond.
