The Current System
Under the existing system each Board member
maintains a separate list of the contacts he or she needs.
When information needs overlaps, Board members share information
manually or by exchanging copies.
The problems ...
- Sometimes data needs to be converted between storage formats.
- Exhanging data causes delays in getting work done,
especially if people aren't always available.
- Updates that one person makes aren't immediately available to others.
- Data can be lost if someone's home computer crashes.
