Information and communication are two of the most important
strategic issues for the success of every enterprise.
While today nearly every organization uses a substantial
number of computers and communication tools (like telephone
or fax), they are often still isolated. While managers
today are able to use applications like wordprocessors or
spreadsheets, not very many of them use computer-based
tools to communicate with other departments or information
retrieval programs.
To overcome these obstacles in an effective usage of
information technology, computer networks are necessary.
They are a new kind (one might call it paradigm) of
organization of computer systems produced by the need to
merge computers and communications. At the same time they
are the means to converge the two areas; the unnecessary
distinction between tools to process and store information
and tools to collect and transport information can
disappear. Computer networks can manage to put down the
barriers between information held on several (not only
computer) systems. Only with the help of computer networks
can a borderless communication and information environment
be built.

Computer in transportation:

The importance of computers in transportation can be easily demonstrated if you take the example of a courier service.

For Ex: You have sent a courier through a courier service. Then immediately the details of your courier like where it has reached, whether it is received by thr recepient, when it is received etc etc..... all the details are displayed in the Courier Company's website. Without computer this wouldnot have been possible. So, life is made easy.

Now due to more familiarization of computers, it is being used in almost all the fields.

Hi,

Computers are used in various fields today and we can also say that there are very limited offices which do not use computers for their official purposes. As already said by our team member, it is very useful in a courier office, Airline bookings online and the transactions done using computers in the Airports of various locations in India, Lorry or truck transportation offices etc. If you have to go via check post, then you have to pay them tax to enter a different state and that is also recorded with the use of a computer.

Hence there are various uses of computers in transportation fields.

Best regards,
Mala.

now a days the uses of computers are expanding in all areas. The main reason for this is exchange of information and communicting among the people.

There is the need to use computers in Transportation. It reduces the time and gives the correct information about transportation.

Computer networks can manage to put down the
barriers between information held on several (not only
computer) systems. Only with the help of computer networks
can a border less communication and information environment
be built.
