Subject:HELP!! Business case From:Dorothy Champlin <champlin -at- KODAK -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 20 Sep 1994 17:07:10 EDT
I have just been informed that there is a chance that we will be losing
our opportunity to subscribe to user groups on the net. Can any of you
out there help me create a business case for why I should be allowed my
I think it would be particularly effective if I can present
documentation actually obtained from internet users to substantiate my
continued need for an internet account.
My charge is to present an actual business case in which I must
mention cost and benefit figures. I already have a few ideas in mind,
but I don't want to prejudice what any of you might have to offer.
I guess what I need is your ideas about the necessity for maintaining
contacts outside my little domain, but better yet, actually instances
where being on the net and having access to the ideas and experiences
of others has actually saved you or your company money.
Please respond as soon as possible. Time is of the essence here!
Many, many thanks in advance,
