This aspect of the business can determine rather the business sinks or swims.
During the initial business plan Kundler Fine Foods decided to outsource to a consulting firm to assist in the procurement and installation of a Retail Enterprise Management System. Because finance and accounting are a very important aspect of the business the Retail Enterprise Management system needs to be developed with the needs of the company taken into consideration. The consulting firm chosen was Smith Systems Consulting. This consulting firm was also contracted on a yearly basis to maintain the Retail Management System.
