Critical distinctions can be made between broad classifications of end user computing applications known as enterprise-wide computing situations and the more focused requirements for dispersed or multiple-location environments. Attaining efficiency in administrative information management systems is the objective in both cases. This paper discusses the coordination, design, programming and training efforts associated with a management information system which spans geographically dispersed offices (multiple-locations) of an enterprise. The focus of the application development project was to eliminate the requirement for each of the offices to have specialized application packages and to help ensure uniformity in reporting.
