Purchasing & Inventory Management - November 3
The Purchasing and Inventory Management course explores the new applications and technologies available to small business for implementing supply chain management practices which drive down costs and improve customer service. Today's software-as-a-service (SAAS) and cloud computing phenomenon have made big company enterprise resource planning (ERP) functionality available to smaller companies. In addition to purchasing and inventory management, this course will also explore software to automate other supply chain processes, including warehouse management systems (WMS), point-of-sale (POS) systems, and retail management systems (RMS).
Website Development - November 17
The Website Development course lays the foundation for the successful integration of a website into normal business operations and introduces the best practices of web development to the small business owner. In addition, the information offered presents the building blocks to challenge small business owners to further research, understand, utilize, and master emerging technologies. The World Wide Web has become a major delivery platform for web development. However, among web professionals, "web development" usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building websites. Web development can range from the creation of the simplest single page website of plain text to the programming of the most complex web-based applications, e-commerce, or social network services.
