BSO and Assignment 2

Everything that was said in Assignment 2 about the Bicycle Sellers of Ontario (BSO) also applies to

Assignment 3 (and Assignment 4).

More About BSO

The Bicycle Sellers of Ontario (BSO) was started 20 years ago when a group of eight owners of

bicycle stores, each located in a different city, decided to form a single company.

Over time, BSO expanded by finding the most successful bicycle shop in a town that didn’t already

have a BSO store in it. They would then ask that store owner in that town if they wanted to join

BSO. They have a common name, logo and webpage but would each run their own store and the

main webpage would link to the one for each store.

Currently the BSO website just lists the store hours, locations and bicycle models available at each

location. If customers find a bike they are interested in buying, they can reserve it at a particular

location by submitting their name and either their email address or telephone number to the website.

They then have three days to show up at that location and decide if they want to purchase the bike

or not. If they decided not to purchase the bike or if three days have gone by and the store has not

heard from the potential customer, it becomes available again for anyone to purchase.


Recently the members of BSO have decided to work cooperatively on more business activities and

offer some new services. They put Kelly Lee in charge of the project largely because she was the

most successful bicycle store owner. Kelly credits her success so far to taking CS330 at the

University of Waterloo which gave her the tools she needed to leverage information systems in

order to help her business thrive. Together the group under Kelly’s leadership have come up with

the following ideas to help make them more competitive.

Rather than have each individual store negotiate with bicycle wholesalers, BSO has decided they

should purchase the bicycles as a group from the wholesalers so they could get a discount on the

price. BSO would then take responsibility for shipping the bicycles to the various stores.

If a particular model of bicycle was selling really well at one location and not selling well at

another location, BSO would arrange to have some bicycles transferred from the less popular

location to the more popular one.

BSO members will all offer a common bicycle maintenance program where a client pays a fee

when they purchase a new bike and will have any repairs covered under the plan (as long as the

bike has not been in an accident) plus receive two annual tune-ups. Customers could purchase the

plan at one store but get service at another BSO store if they moved.

To keep customers coming back, if a customer moved to another city with a BSO bicycle shop,

they could get a 10% discount at that store for their first purchase.

BSO is also interested in getting into the used bike business where they would accept a good

quality used bike as a trade-in, overhaul it, clean it, repair it and sell it. When sold, it would come

with a one-year guarantee where BSO would cover the costs of repairing the bike as long as it

has not been in an accident. All the used bikes would be listed on BSO’s web site and if the bike

was located at another store, it could be delivered to the store of the client’s choice.

Q1 Comtemporary Hardware Trends

Slides 113 to 132 present some contemporary hardware trends. Pick one that you think would be

particularly useful for BSO to consider and explain in a few sentences how BSO could use that

technology and why it would be particularly useful compared to the other trends. [4 marks]

Q2 Databases

Slides 153 to 234 present different technologies for storing data. Pick one that you think would be

particularly useful for BSO to consider and explain in a few sentences how BSO could use that

technology and why it would be particularly useful. [4 marks]

Q3 Networking Technologies

Slides 237 to 279 present different networking technologies. Besides the internet, which BSO

already uses for their webpages and for email, is there any other networking technology that you

think would be particularly useful for BSO to consider and explain in a few sentences how BSO

could use that technology and why it would be particularly useful. [4 marks]


Q4 Major Business Functions and Informations Systems

Slides 319 to 330 present four different types of information systems. Currently BSO can only

afford to purchase one of these. Pick one that you think would be particularly useful for BSO to

consider and explain in a few sentences how BSO could use that technology and why it would be

particularly useful. [4 marks]
