You are the general accountant for Word Systems, Inc., a
typing service based in Los Angeles, California. The
company has decided to upgrade its equipment. It
currently has a widely used version of a word processing
program. The company wishes to invest in more up-to-date
software and to improve its printing capabilities.
Two options have emerged. Option #1 is for the company
to keep its existing computer system, and upgrade its word
processing program. The memory of each individual work
station would be enhanced, and a larger, more efficient
printer would be used. Better telecommunications
equipment would allow for the electronic transmission of
some documents as well.
Option #2 would be for the company to invest in an entirely
different computer system. The software for this system is
extremely impressive, and it comes with individual laser
printers. However, the company is not well known, and the
software does not connect well with well-known software.
Payback and net present value information for these
options follows:
