The Magnet Leisure Centre is in Aylesbury. Every type of people come there & uses its facilities. Its population is about 500.In present moment it have limited ICT system so that’s why it have some problems, which can be corrected by using ICT system.
In the Leisure centre we have following facilities:
7:Special payment tills & information Display unit.
The current system:
Each member of the leisure centre filled in a card upon application. This was stored alphabetical order. These cards were cross-referenced to a file of the month they joined to enable the staff to send out notices when they became due.This is because the detail become mixed up with each other. These renewals were pre-printed with gaps left for the details to be filled in on screen for posting. Stand-alone computers are used for this.
Account work done on time and send to the offices in town. The people who do this job charge too much money.
Posters & letters:
Posters and leaflets for publicity and advertising are done under a local advertising firm, which is very expensive. They also not appropriate for all members. Sometimes people miss to get them and sometimes their quantity become less.
The temperature is control by central processing unit in pool area by using computers and sensors.
New Technology we need:
We need a new system in which we need ICT.By this; leisure centre will have many advantages. In some parts we will use networks for communicate.
In Administration Department we need ICT systems will help in Finance, Personal, marketing & Publicity. It will save the time e.g. with this system we can do 1 day long work in just some minutes.
In Sports Hall ICT lighting must use for special effects. It must be placed more IT programs e.g. database for booking etc.
In Health Suite ICT can be introduce for make the control better e.g. scanners of membership cards.
In Cafeteria/bar we need ICT Electronic tills for collecting the money of the sales and gives customer a receipt. However, when the new network is in place this could be linked to the system to transfer the order automatically to the department.
In Training pool we must need to use the computer system for the control of temperature in the swimming pool, automatic length time systems & for booking etc.
In the main entrance (payment tills) we must need to use the computer communication system to send the message that how many people have paid in a week. We also need a way of charging customers-talking payment etc.
In the gaming zone we need the communication system for linked the computers with each other. We need IT system for special effects of lighting.
In the information display unit we need the ICT communicating system for sending the live information & changing the information for display.
In the sport shop we need to use the ICT because if stock is low, the computer can reorder the stock department immediately through the LAN network. So in this way it will be very helpful for us.
