Accounting Information Systems Comprehensive Final Project. Guidance on assignment 13-1: Please review the description of the company: ABC Insurance Company offers individual auto and home insurance servicing the East Coast. The company's home office is located in Albany, New York. However, ABC Insurance Company has field agents operating out of two additional states which are New Jersey and Massachusetts. Based on this information, this assignment requires that you provide additional details about this company. Based on this description and the additional details that you provide on this company will define the comprehensive flow of data. It will be different by each student depending on the additional information you provide. I would expect to see REA pattern diagram format not grammar and it would include the attributes and cardinalities. You should incorporate your knowledge that you have learned throughout your Accounting classes; i.e. analyze the financial results of your company, is the company doing well or poor and why, etc. The paper length will change based on the information you provide. Based on the required items under the grading criteria, I would recommend that your paper be a minimum of 8 to 10 pages in length not including title and reference page.
