Mr. Franco Forest owns a small lawn care business with three employees. He owns the lawn mowers, rakes, and weed whackers that are housed in a storage area at the back of his home. He currently keeps his records in a spiral-bound book. He has a page for his list of customers, and their information including when he first started to do their landscaping, and the size of their lawns. He has another section to keep track of payments. Franco usually requires payment on completion of the service, but this rarely happens and he has lost track of who owes him and how much.
Franco realizes that he is not as efficient as he could be in his record keeping and asks you to help him to track customer service dates, payments and lawn care revenue. He may want to get a loan to purchase some more equipment and possibly have a website. He provides you with his book of customers, and payments and prices of the various lawn sizes. To help Franco with the reporting requirements, you need to work with a spreadsheet, word processing and presentation software.
