11.1. Revenue Model: Sales revenue from providing a moving service

11.1.1. Information Needs: moving details (from where, and to where), distance information (gas costs), vehicle age (for maintenance), salaries and cost information (industry information), information on costs for implementing the new IT system. Collect it: GPS (collect information from trucks on their whereabouts, separate system to relay to texts and e-mail for the customer, accessed online through the database) To get salaries and cost information look at the industry and compare industry wages against our wages, compare supplier prices and calculate gas prices based on a monthly gas price average. Moving details will be collected from customers upon initial contact via phone or web, and this will allow us to calculate distances each vehicle travels and collect this data in our database and attach it to Customer ID through Vehicle ID. Vehicle ID (a primary key) can also store data with regards to vehicle age based on purchase date.

11.2. Value Prop: We offer a personalized moving experience through constant communication with our customers and provide them with a reliable online interface to manage and track the delivery of their items before, during and after the service.

11.2.1. Information: contact information for communication, exact details on their moving items so we can keep them updated (especially expensive and large fragile items), the size of the move, information on the truck location (ie. GPS), the moving dates and times, employee details, vehicle details, fleet details Collect it: transfer information from previous paper system, and for the new system we will have online forms attached to the website and a call centre, as well as our SKYPE personal chat session (talking to the customers right away and building trust with customers so you can get preview information about the customers home and moving situation so we can refer to it later for detailed quotes etc.) Database: upon collection of new customer data, we will store it in a relational database that allows us to connect data between customer information and moving details based on their primary key (Customer ID). Each time a customer logs in or chats with us etc. we will be able to look up their information on the database and provide them with the most personalized service possible

11.2.2. Employee Details: so we can use the correct employee for the different needs of the customer. For example, if the customer wants a specific kind of move (Ex. fragile items only), we can provide the correctly trained and experienced employee for the job (ex. employee details on who had the least breakages in his/her last 5 moves)

12.1. Information need

12.1.1. Revenue Model We are going to charge commission based on each successful property transaction Based on our fixed and variable expenses, we will put a charge on variable basis: that is, we charge the customer only for the resources the customer has used for each transaction. This will be done by creating a program that will give every customer an unique customer id and will also keep track of all the resources used by that specific customer, for e.g. hours used of a property consultant, photocopy of the paper etc

12.1.2. Value Proposition: VarReality is dedicated towards creating a convenient means for customers to trade their property at the shortest time possible at the cheaper rate Economical environment (inflation rate, interest rate, number of houses built every month) Customer profile (income, age, family size, profession) Price of different kinds of properties Demographic trends (ethnicity, migration rate etc) Government policy (tax incentive, subsidies for moving towards under-populated areas) Employment rate in the specific area (comparison with unemployment rate) Statistics Canada Website AC Nielsen data (for market research) Newspapers Economic magazines or real estate journals Other government information websites

13.2.4. Individual Patient Data, in terms of previous visits, previous diagnoses, average time spent at clinic, symptom/ailment trends, regular doctor, upcoming checks

13.2.5. Inventory Levels

13.3. By collecting this data, we can create an information database, allowing us to effectively schedule the clinic as we'll know the typical time of a patient visit, which doctor would most efficiently treat them, we'll also have almost all information needed at our fingertips - in terms of patient history, allergies, etc.

13.4. We can collect all the data we need through implementation of a RFID & infra-red tag service throughout the practice. Then tie the data collected through this system to patient/doctor files.

13.4.1. When a patient books an appointment/surgery they are added to electronic records. Upon arrival, they are given an RFID enabled tag and immediately directed to the appropriate room. The tag tracks their progress through the clinic, and alerts the doctor when they reach the room. They hang the tag on the wall, and it begins tracking how long they'll be there for (connected to the record of when they made the appointment and what the complaint was.
