  Online Sales and Inventory SystemFor De Oro Therapeutic Center A Project ProposalPresented toCollege of ScienceDe La Salle University – DasmariñasIn Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for theDegree of Bachelor of Science inInformation TechnologyAndres, Meljoyce G.Baldoza Jr., Arlito T.Mendoza, Rizza M.July 2010  CHAPTER 1INTRODUCTION1.1Background of the Study In the modern world, online can be defined as the accessibility of an entity via acomputer or being connected to a computer network. It is the capacity to reach out to other entities that may be geographically apart, or having the connection in one thread, which is, theWorld Wide Web. Almost anything nowadays can be found online—private personalities,celebrities, business companies, organizations, government agencies, media groups, and almosteverything else.Because of the wide scope and demand of having an online presence, companies areusing the online world to reach out to more clients. This includes processes of inquiry about thecompany, negotiations among sales and customs, and product inventory.Among others, sales and inventory are two of the most important aspects in a businessfirm, especially those who deals with vast number of diverse clients. Stores of different natureare usually the ones who usually take full usage of these business strategies.However, the process of sales and inventory in the Philippines nowadays are not asinclined as that of other leading countries. Many technological advances are already introducedin the Western countries in response to the arising demand of selling, but only those high-endcompanies here in the Philippines use the said advancements.This problem among stores arises as the demand for better selling facilities grow.Companies of such nature need a quality system that could offer customers an opportunity toinquire for a product, buy, and pay their bills even miles away from the company.  The need for a more advanced system arise competition among companies. Thissomehow encourages firms to further improve their current system and get away from thetraditional way of selling and inventory. Because of this, the use of internet and web applicationsto improve the sales and inventory system surfaced.De Oro Therapeutic Center is just one of the many who practices traditional way of recording their sales and inventory.De Oro was founded on March 2004 by Manuel Ayson Roa. It started when Mr. Roa gotan idea of product networking from a Chinese friend on 2002. Their very first products weremedicinal soaps, because that was the time when traditional herbal products hit the market. After two years of product networking, their products grew from soaps to herbal teas, naturalcosmetics, and personal care products like lotions and the like.From then, he noticed that their products were very marketable, and many people wereconstantly buying their products. This brought up the idea of making a store for all the products.Today, after six short years, De Oro has surprisingly grew to 64 branches nationwide,most of which are situated in malls and commercial places. Their main and biggest branch islocated in Sta. Cruz, Manila.De Oro sells a variety of merchandise from food supplements, health care, personalgoods, cosmetics and adult products. Under food supplements are capsules, coffee, tea, syrup,and wine; under health care, ointment, napkin, feminine wash, health oil, and plasters; under  personal goods, hair spa, shampoo, bath salt, soap, lotion; under cosmetics, facial cream, lip balm, sun block, toner, powder; under adult products, condom, contraceptive pills, sex cream,viagra, aphrodisiacs. All products that are sold in each branch are coming from a commonwarehouse located at their main branch. Each branch has one designated branch manager which  handles the transactions from their respective branches to the main branch to other sister  branches.De Oro is one of the leading suppliers of cosmetic and health products in the countrytoday. Since the products that De Oro sells are those that are not commonly found in the localmarket, it is very much suitable for such advancement because customers will have an easier wayto look for and purchase the products that they want to buy.Aside from this, the company will have a better way to connect with a wider scope of customers. Although De Oro has a lot of branches nationwide, they are not easily noticed because of their small, almost booth-like stores. Having an online system will provide them amore effective way to advertise their products. 1.2Statement of the Research Problem De Oro Therapeutic Center is still encountering several problems when it comes to their sales and inventory process. These problems are brought about mainly by their poor recordkeeping and inefficient monitoring of transactions and updating of files.The first main problem that the company is experiencing is the huge tendency of inaccuracy in all their transactions because of their poor record keeping. Almost all transactionsare recorded in logbooks and paper files. Because of this, the files have the tendency to be lost or mishandled by the workers or the customers.This problem of record keeping also brings up other problems with regards to datasecurity. Files are not secured because anybody can access it and there are no restrictions indoing because of the logbooks and paper files.
