Club IT, owned by Ruben Keys and Lisa Tejada, is a fresh, hot night club located in the center of downtown Chicago. It is a hotspot for people to come and enjoy food, drinks, and local concerts. When Ruben and Lisa designed this night club, they began to think how they could attract more than just night club customers. By implementing a good ethical standard for new businesses, Ruben and Lisa made this business a Web base business. Customers can register online and place their orders ahead of time. Also they can pre-register for upcoming concerts, upcoming events, and receive a discount.
The two owners had many goals for this business when it first opened. One of the many discussions included with the management team and that they were happy with the technology department. However, they would like to see it improve over the next several months. A major concern they had was that they needed to find a better way to run the technology of the building in a faster, more effective way before they could open another building. The vision Ruben has is one day running both buildings on the same technology system. This can be done, however it will take the right team of professionals to implement the programs.
Club IT should also have not just one, but multiple computer programs to aid them in running the facility. Different questions could be asked. How does the staff take orders at the bar? What about the waitresses taking orders at the tables? All of this could be changed. Other items that could be brought up are timecards and that human resource information all could be computerized. Both Ruben and Lisa should have either known about this or been notified about this sooner. Different companies that represent small businesses may be able to come in and do a presentation. There should be a…...

...Club IT, Part 3 Student Name Axia College of University of Phoenix XBIS 219 Instructor Date Opened in 2005, Club IT has enjoyed success in a business, nightclub, where many fail. This is mostly because of the experience of the owners, Ruben Keys and Lisa Tejada. Both Keys and Tejada graduated from college with degrees in Business Administration and during college they both worked in numerous nightclubs as musicians while attending college. Entertainment at Club IT is all music related with live bands on the weekends and a live DJ on the weekdays. Club IT's customers are mostly tech knowledgeable young adults. Smart phones, tablets, and other forms of wireless communications are part of their everyday lives and they are just as likely to shop online as they are to shop at a brick and mortar business. (Appendix D, n.d.) Also, their customers are frequent visitors to social media sites like Facebook and Youtube. Even though the owners have experience their success is impressive because their information systems are either non existent or out of date. The primary goal of information systems is to process data into information and knowledge. Data is raw information that has not been organized or analyzed. Once data has been organized so it has meaning and value it becomes information. Data and knowledge that has been processed to convey understanding, experience, accumulated learning, and expertise as they apply to a business-related problem is considered...

...Club its Rad System Roxanne Cooper XBIS/219 12/16/2012 Victoria Miller Club its Rad System Club IT is fast becoming one of the hot spots for night life and music enthusiast. The club for the most part has been using an information system that seems to work for them. There is a need for improvement in certain areas to create a system that will more satisfy the needs of staff, customers and open the doors for e-commerce as Ruben suggests. Implementing Rapid application development system (RAD) the club would be combining joint application design (JAD), computer assisted software engineering tools (CASE), and prototyping to produce a high quality system quickly (Rainer 2009). The internet connection to the office is a problem that cannot be ignored. Although the dial up connection is less expensive than the high speed internet, in some areas dial up was 14% lower in 2003 (Whitacre, B. E., & Mills, B. F. (2010) and it is still lower priced today. The main problem with this is the speed at which information can be down loaded, and streaming music and video could be an all-day affair if possible at all. This will surely not sit well with club IT consumer base of Net generation. If the club cannot keep up the pace with its own customers, then it will not be able to compete in the market for very long. They could add a second line to save little money, but in the long run the loss of client base would cost considerably more. The high speed internet will not only...

... Assignment: Club IT, Part 1 Jermaine Bullock XBIS/219 - Business Information Systems 4/18/14 Wes Stinehelfer The Club IT has a very unique and trendy concept for a nightclub. The administrative team is determined to bring the most relaxing and enjoyable experience from the atmosphere and musical ambiance, while formulating long-tern reoccurring clientele to come and enjoy themselves on a consistent basis. Most clubs seek consistent appearances from regular clientele, but Club IT is striving to seek long-lasting relationships that will develop into “a community” of clientele. This endeavor to cultivate “a community” will need a well executed plan of action that is supported by a technically sound digital support team. This will be the pillar that will support and dictate Club IT’s success to accomplish its mission (Club IT, 2010). The administrative team consists of two determined and eager entrepreneurs that have paid their dues in terms of working multiple jobs and earning the degrees necessary to place them in a suitable position to open a nightclub such as Club IT. The two owners are a step ahead of its competition because they recognize and understand that they need to expand and grow as a company and as leaders to their developing clientele base.
