Abstract

This is the first of a two-case series (186-009-1 and 186-010-1). JL Maltby Ltd. is a small UK agricultural and garden machinery dealership. The company is about to take on a second major tractor franchise and has ambitious plans for expansion over the next 5 years. The Managing Director is concerned that the company should maintain close control of stocks, alongside administrative and accounting efficiency over that period, and is seriously contemplating introducing a computerised system. The case gives the student the opportunity to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of computerisation and is particularly useful for the small business manager.
