ABSTRACT

This project focused on the design and implementation of a customizable business manager that can drive the activities of any small/ medium business. Most of such businesses usually lack the financial strength to initiate the development of a business management system from scratch. For such business to automate their activities, what they require is a customizable business management system such as the one implemented in this project. The project involves creation of a database for business enterprise. It took the following in to consideration; database design and connectivity, prototyping and reporting tools like crystal report or ms access reports, graphics user inter-phasing (GUI) and customizability. This project is aimed at building a system that can fit into the day to day business activities of any small/ medium organization .Visual basic for application (VBA) will be used as the implementation language and platform.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.0 Introduction 
Business is defined as the commercial activity involving the exchange of money for goods and services. Companies or an organisation that buys and sells goods makes products or provide services are also said to be in business (Encarta Dictionary).
It is an organised approach to providing customers with the goods and services they want. As companies and organisation that provide these services and goods are on the increase in size and in numbers, there is a genuine necessity for the inculcation of more than just basic book keeping software. A small or medium business manager is defined here as affordable, integrated software application that enables business to perform tasks efficiently, access information easily and improve business performance.
This project is aimed at providing software that can be easily customized for any small or medium business enterprise a case study of KOLPING SUPER STORES (Abia state) was used to demonstrate the workings of the software. The small/medium business implies those based on limited capital and number of workers, but is universally accepted as an economic development sector of any society.
Although the job of this manager can be done manually, computerisation enhances speed, accuracy, precision and this increases administration decision making process and the competitiveness of the business.

1.1 Statement Of Problem
This project deals with purchasing, stocktaking, sales, accounting and checking of personnel of KOLPING SUPER STORES, Umuahia, Abia state, the case study. In the purchasing and stock taking departments of the super store, the task of collecting, storing, retrieving of products and the storage of data are being done manually, thereby making it tedious. There is sometimes delay in making information readily available when needed. Also calculation of costs, profits, discounts etc of various goods in stock, per scheduling time has been a difficulty. There is also a problem of decision making i.e. what to purchase, when to purchase, how much to purchase, what is in store etc.  These problems need careful attention and tackling to improve the management.

1.2 Objectives
The objectives of the proposed system are to efficiently save data processes and information of the super store.
Other objectives include,
improvement of the accounting processes
reduction in human workload
provision of timely, accurate and reliable information for decision making
provision of centralised data
elimination of duplication of data here by increase data integrity
faster response to needs
ease of use and flexibility
provision of room for future growth and development
a general information and improvement in the operations and services of the marketing decision of the business.

1.3 Significance Of The Study
Small/medium business is on the increase, as our economy does not readily provide employment. This can provide cheap solutions to enhance productivity, integrate business processes and access to information, hence informed decisions.
In small/medium business, manual stock taking is an eminent problem. Stock taking involves making inventory or list of stock and noting its location and value. It’s often an annual exercise due to amount of work, a kind of audit to work out the value of the business and as part of the accounting process.
Any stock control system must be able to
track stock levels
make orders
issue stock
The simplest manual system is the stock book which suits small businesses with few stock items. Computerised stock control systems run on similar principles to manual ones, but are more flexible and information is easily retrieved. You can quickly get a stock valuation or find out how well a particular of stock is moving. This software helps to accomplish this with ease and efficiency.

1.4 Scope And Limitations  

The scope of this work shall be within the spheres of core small /medium business manager, which include inventory management and accounting services, meanwhile, a software solution shall be developed at the end of the work using Microsoft visual basic 6.0 and Microsoft office development tools like any other academic project work, the following are the key limitation of this work.

Time: this is one of the key limitations of this work; every project is targeted to time. Thus the writer is usually given a limited time to write his/ her project. The writer is then advised to choose topics that can be handled within the time allocated to it.

Insufficient material: As much has not been written on customized business manager the writer did not find it easy to get relevant material. This then leads the writer into brain storming.

Insufficient financial power: This is another major limitation of this work, due to lack of financial power; the writer was not able to visit all the branches of the case study.
 
1.5 Background Of The Case Study 
Kolping superstore, situated at st. Finbarrs umuahia, Abia state. was established in 1990, by Rev. Fr. Dr lucius Iwejuru Ugorji. It was established at a time of great difficulty in Nigeria history. It was a time of dwindling economy, military dictatorship, unemployment, near hopelessness for everybody especially our youth etc. shopping mails of it kind were needed but was not available. It sole aim was to meet the daily needs of individuals with their varieties of stock. All forms of development in the business have come from hard work and dedication of its staff of various departments. Kolping Superstore has six (6) different sections. Books and Magazines, Entertainment, Electronics,
Food and Beverages, Clothing, Drinks; each section is operated/managed by a single sale managing department. It is this sales and marketing department that handles both of the personnel, Stock, and sales that emphasis will be based on.

1.6 Definition Of Terms
CUSTOMIZING
Customizing means to make a general product/service to suit specified individual/organization requirement. This means that the software should be able to meet or apply to individual needs and requirement of individual organization
.
Customizable small/medium business manager has the ability to render its services to any small/medium business in such a way that the organization/business thinks or see it as if it was created or designed specifically only for them (business).

Computerised bookkeeping
Computerised bookkeeping removes many of the "books" that are used to record transactions and enforces double entry bookkeeping. Computer software increases the speed at which bookkeeping can be performed

BUSINESS
In economics, a business (also called firm or enterprise) is a legally recognized organizational entity designed to provide goods and/or services to consumers or corporate entities such as governments, charities or other businesses. Businesses are predominant in capitalist economies, most being privately owned and formed to earn profit to increase the wealth of owners. The owners and operators of a business have as one of their main objectives the receipt or generation of a financial return in exchange for work and acceptance of risk. Notable exceptions include cooperative businesses and state-owned enterprises. Socialistic systems involve government, public, or worker ownership of most sizable businesses
