Especially for You Jewelers is a small jewelry company in a college
town. Over the last couple of years, it has experienced a tremendous
increase in its business. However, its financial performance has not
kept pace with its growth. The current system, which is partly manual
and partly automated, doesn’t track accounts receivables sufficiently,
and the company is finding it difficult to determine the reasons why
the receivables are so high. The company runs frequent specials to
attract customers but has no idea whether these efforts are profitable
or if the benefit—if there is one—comes from associated sales.
Especially for You Jewelers wants to increase repeat sales to its
existing customers; thus, it needs to develop a customer database. It
also wants to install a new direct sales and accounting system to help
solve the outlined problems.



The new direct sales and accounting system for Especially for You
Jewelers will be an important element in the growth and success of the
jewelry company. The direct sales portion must track every sale, be
able to link to the inventory system for cost data, and provide a
daily profit and loss report. The customer database must be able to
produce purchase histories to assist management in preparing special
mailings and special sales to existing customers. Detailed credit
balances and aged accounts for each customer would help to solve the
problem with the high balance of accounts receivables. Special notice
letters and credit history reports would help management reduce
accounts receivable.
