BACKGROUND INFORMATION
ITEM B
• Sunny Seas hotel bookings are made
Sunny Seas is a hotel in a busy seaside
town. Rosie has just taken over the hotel
from her parents. The hotel is large and
old-fashioned but it makes a small amount
of profit each year. Rosie is looking
forward to making improvements to how
the hotel is run. She hopes this will bring in
more customers.
by telephone and recorded in a diary.
Customers’ details are kept on paper in
a filing cabinet. The staff find this
system easy to use. When Rosie
bought a computer, the shop assistant
suggested that she could use a
database to replace the paper records.
She explained that the records in the
customer database would contain a
number of fields, such as title, surname
and first name. Rosie thinks this could
be very useful as she could use the
customer details for future promotions.
However, neither Rosie nor her staff
have used a database before.
