1. April Battiste Student Post Operational Level: Data that can be required at an operational level is, customer name, address, shipping method, items ordered and quantities. Even though mangers at this level can sometimes be considered the “lower level” they still hold a very important task when it comes to logistics, organizing data and information.

Managers at all organizational levels must carry out certain functions, including leading, organizing, controlling and planning. For front line managers, the emphasis is on leadership. Operational managers must gain employees “commitments to goals and plans, the work and to company-wide values. (Johnson, 2018.)

This organization can benefit from IT systems by organizing all important customer invoices by name, phone number and location then use that information to influence important decisions in order to make the business thrive. IT systems can also be beneficial to the business by efficient record keeping. Many businesses have regulations that need to be adhered to and recorded proof of documentation can be done with proper IT systems. IT systems make record keeping easier, faster, and more accurate. (ECPI University, 2019.)

2. Benito Nieves Student Post : Strategic Level

There are several types of information systems that are used to make business decisions. You have three basic levels at which decisions are made. They are the operational level, the managerial level, and strategic level. Transaction processing systems are used at the operational level, management information systems are used at the middle management level, senior managers use a decision support system, and executives use executive information systems. A senior manager notices that their spoon sales have stayed the same for the second quarter of the year. The manager came to that conclusion after he or she went over the quarterly summary reports. At a group decision meeting they conducted simulations and analysis. After they reviewed their summary report, they decided that it would benefit the company if production was increased and raised their inventory by 20% at each location.

3. Heather Fox Student Post : The operational level is the lowest level on the organization pyramid. Although it is the lowest level, this has no relation to it’s importance. The operational level is just as important as the managerial and strategic levels while encompassing more of the functional areas. Individuals at all levels of the organization can use the information provided by the system as they make their decisions (UMUC, 2019.) As also stated in How Information Supports Decision Making, data are captured at the operational level and made available in appropriate forms at the various managerial levels. The data collected at the operational level provides a foundation for the other levels to build upon.

For example, a manager at the operational level of a retail business may have to make a decision regarding marketing. An advertisement that tested well throughout the rest of the company is not being positively received in her market. Negative feedback was provided from customer surveys that are available to take on receipts. Due to the negative feedback in her community, the manager must act quickly to rectify the situation before it begins effecting sales. Without the data collected on the customer surveys in the customer information system, the manager would not have known about the issue and it would have carried further up the organizational pyramid. This is an issue handled at the operational level by a front-line supervisor.
