Customer Question

You own your own small party supply and rental business. You maintain an Excel list of potential customers and clients who have rented or purchased from you in the past two years. The list includes both physical mailing addresses and e-mail addresses for each person listed. You have a ?ategory? code to show whether the contact is a client. If they have done business with you, they show a code of ?UST? for customer. If they are potential customers who have not yet purchased or rented from you, they are coded as ?ROS? for prospect. You want to grow your business, and feel the best way to do this is to solicit business from customers who show a physical address in the same zip code as your business location. Respond fully to the following questions regarding this task: A - (TCO 4) Explain how you will use Excel to find in your list the people you are targeting for new business. Be specific. B - (TCO 8) You want to send a letter to each person on your list from Part A of this question. You have a nice form letter that you have used in the past. Explain how you might personalize the letter by adding your customer names. C - (TCO 7) If you get the results you expect to get from contacting your prospects, you want to be able to do this every month. Explain how you might use Excel to automate the process of separating your list as you did in Part A. D - (TCO 6) You want to gauge the impact of mailing to only your customers, to only your prospects, or to everyone on your list. You have the numbers for each group, the estimated cost per letter, and the expected increase in income for each letter mailed. What Excel tools might you use to see the anticipated outcome for each of the three situations? You are just joined the staff of the XYZ Manufacturing Company (XYZ, for short). XYZ manufactures only one product?he gizmo. It comes in two sizes, the mini-gizmo and the magna-gizmo. Both are difficult to manufacture, and consequently, the company closely monitors rejected units. The company has three locations each of which produces both the mini and the magna-gizmos. You are automating the weekly production reports so that you can easily calculate total production for the entire company each week. The mini-gizmo is priced at $5 per unit. The magna-gizmo is priced at $8 per unit. The unit cost for a reject mini-gizmo is $2. The cost for a reject magna-gizmo is $3. Respond fully to the following questions regarding this task: A - (TCO 1) You have decided to develop a worksheet for each manufacturing facility manager to submit each week. It should show total production and revenue, and total scrap and cost for each product for the week. If a facility drops below 5,000 units of production on the mini-gizmo, the production number should be highlighted in yellow. Explain how you will set this up so that the managers enter only the number of units for each product production and rejects. B - (TCO 5) The managers will e-mail their weekly reports to you on Monday of the following week. You will then produce the summary report. Explain the process for doing this. Give a sample formula to total the number of magna-gizmos produced for the entire company for the week. C - (TCO 5) Each week, you will present the combined report to your boss, who wants to see both the summary and the individual sheets for each location. You want to add a custom footer with the date and the company name to each page. What is the easiest way to do this? Explain the process. D - (TCO 3) Describe the graph that you would create to accompany the report in Part C. Include formatting considerations to make important facts stand out.
